JP teres, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Located in the heart of the city you can’t get any more central or stylish than JP teres for a good helping of local food. The contemporary setting spreads indoors and out, with umbrellas, booths, fans and air-conditioned tables, lounges and bar stools offering comfort for buttocks of any category. The open kitchen (which is a signature trait of all restaurants in the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur), floor to ceiling windows, subtle designer lighting, cascading water and Asian easy listening tunes marry to make a handsome spot for enjoying a bite, drink or both.

Service was fast and friendly. We appreciated the efficiency, excellent English and confidence of staff. Often my request for recommendations is met with an unsure whimper that everything on the menu is good.  Not here, our waiter quickly latched onto the fact that we didn’t want to wade through the menu. He made two suggestions that we swiftly accepted and was on his way to bring drinks to our table and place our order with the kitchen.

What seemed like mere minutes later, our dishes arrived vibrant and steaming. Presented on neutral coloured crockery and wooden trays the tableware was chic without distracting from the meal.

Mee Goreng Mamak arrived as a mound of wok-fried yellow noodles laced with vegetables, prawns, chicken, potato, tomato and spiced with chili. The Nasi Ayam  (Chicken Rice) had been tipped off to us before arrival as a good choice, so when the waiter suggested it too, we couldn’t refuse. The centerpiece, roasted chicken strips came with juicy breast meat and crispy skin. A bowl of chicken broth, ginger rice and chili, ginger and thick soy sauces extended the experience.

These two dishes really were more than enough for two, but hubby can’t resist when faced with a new menu, so the indulgence continued. Cheese Naan with butter chicken was ordered next. Soft bread with a thin layer of cheese went very well with the creamy Murgh Makhani. The chicken is roasted in the tandoori oven before being dunked in a rich tomato and kamari chili gravy. Like Prince Charming and Snow White, neither should be too far apart from the other.

Coffee and Sparkling Water
A separate dessert bar and outdoor island bar are seductive enticements worth a return visit. On this occasion however, we couldn’t fit another drop in – not even dessert (shock horror!) – just means we’ll have to come back.

Reason to visit:  authentic local food in a gorgeous setting, fantastic service

    1. Sean, I was impressed too. Often restaurants don't fare so well in terms of local food when compared to stalls. But they're definitely doing something right here. :-)

    1. I like this type of chicken rice. I'm not so fond of lots of fat and bone. This one was mostly meat. Loved it.
