Poolside, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Upbeat music and a clean resort pool feel welcome you at the Poolside of the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. On a cool clear night, this semi-alfresco café is refreshed by drafts from the pool and ceiling fans and, volunteers crystal views of the twin towers soaring above the outdoor terrace.

A short menu makes ordering easy. Classic poolside fare includes salads, sandwiches, burgers, a few things from the grill and a couple of local favourites.  A drink menu hits a couple of things from most areas – cold, hot, wine and beer.

Already having indulged at the wine bar upstairs, we were looking for something light and fresh. The Nicoise Salad turned out to be a good choice. A simple combination of tuna, tomato, green beans, black olives, eggs, shallots and anchovies made an uncomplicated meal.

The Grilled Tasmanian Ocean Trout sided with mixed salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and a tart lemon dressing also did not disappoint. A generous wedge of pink flesh flaked upon contact and the crisp green accompaniment added a fresh contrast to the natural oils of the fish.

Sticking with our wholesome theme, the Natural Yoghurt with berries and mint seemed like the logical finish. A huge (!) serving was perhaps taking into account the low calories of the sweet, allowing us to have more. Not one to resist anything with coconut, hubby licked up the Coconut Ice Cream. I quickly latched onto the caramelized stick of slivered almonds, happy that my partner is not such a nut fan.

“Whispering Angel” Rose
2011 RM39
A French Chateau d’esclans “Whispering Angel” Rose 2011 was an adept poolside beverage. Hubby, (who drank too much the night before) had a Chamomile Tea brewed in a press, followed by a Sprite.  I however, enjoyed the floral aroma and fresh fruitiness of the rose.

Poolside at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur is a refreshing escape for an uncomplicated meal in the city centre.
