Cielo KL, Jalan Ceylon

by - April 14, 2020

Food always seems to taste better when accompanied with a good view, knowing how much my husband loves good views and drinks it took me quite a while to hunt down a perfect spot that we'll spend our night together for his birthday. Ever since the kids came into the picture, we hardly had time for ourselves anymore, those drinking nights were literally gone but I've gotta thank my mama & nanny for taking care of the kids on this special day so we'll have time for ourselves.

Cielo KL seems to be a perfect choice for us, sitting up on the 23rd floor of Vida Bukit Ceylon, Jalan Ceylon, the restaurant is just a street away from Changkat Bukit Bintang, parking was free and most importantly it had an impressive view of Kuala Lumpur with a modern and sophisticated setting, yet it was a relaxed dining experience.

I made my reservation online on their website here, book my dinner at 530pm just a lil before sunset, so I could see KL in the daylight and enjoy the sunset while I eat and catch the glittering skyline at night while I drink. The food menu looks awesome, it was mainly seafood which is something both of us enjoy, for those who don't fancy seafood there's steaks and chicken but not many options available so if you're fussy about you might have to opt for something else.

Bread is always a good idea to pre-start my meal and warm up my palate, I really love the lobster butter that went really well with the fresh-baked bread, it was still flaky on the outside and moist at the center.

For starters, we begin with Pan-seared Scallops RM55 which was served with green pea puree, mushroom ragout, sea urchin foam, spinach sprout, and celery shoot sprout. This was probably my favorite course of the whole meal, it was perfectly pan-seared on each side, moist and buttery, the sauce that comes with it was divine, it complements the whole elements of this dish well.

Next up, we were served with a lime sorbet to cleanse our palate before we proceed to our main course, I had the Organic Free Range Spring Chicken with Moreal Mushroom sauce & Sarawak Black Pepper Sauce RM88 and Ricky opt for the charcoal-grilled Loup de Mer aka Sea Bass with Lobster Cream sauce RM115 both dishes were accompanied with mousseline potatoes refined with a hint of pecorino basil pesto. The portion was just right for the both of us, I couldn't finish my chicken so hubs helped me out with it as well.

What's a birthday without dessert right? Ordered the Bombe Alaska RM42 because I love the fact that we can set the dessert on fire and if you watched my IG stories you'll see how shocked hubs expression was, anyway the Cielo version was made with three colorful layers of ice cream - rose petal-raspberry ice cream, pistachio ice cream, olive oil ice cream, domed atop on a meringue that we flambé with Cointreau.

Cielo KL is a great place for a drink and a meal, I would say it was reasonably priced for the premium atmosphere and fresh local produce you're getting. My husbs and I had a pleasant time dining here and I am surely going back for more! I hope this will help you in deciding where to go for a romantic dinner with your special one in the future
