Chalet @ Equtorial Hotel KL

According to our dearest Mr-Know-It-All Wikipedia, Chalet also called Swiss chalet is a type of building or house in the Alpine region made of wood. Knowing very well that visiting this beautiful land of Alps won't be happening anytime in the near future, a visit to Chalet at Equatorial Hotel would be the perfect substitution^~^This restaurant has been featured frequently on newspapers, magazines and of course dozen of blogs for serving up some simply awesome Swiss cuisine~~

Upon arrival, the entrance itself did gives me a sense of walking into a Swiss chalet~~

We walked into a very dim room....this also translates to lousy photos being taken for the rest of the evening...*sigh*

But hey, looking at all this pretty desserts greeting us at the doorway, I shouldn't really complained, right??

What the heck, I'm going to cam-whore even if it's a total eclipse!!!

Seriously, this place is so dark that I practically had to squint my eyes while reading the menu.......

Though I wouldn't mind squinting my eyes for the rest of the evening considering what a
charming ambiance this place possessed^~^

I love this wooden plates~~

Going against the darkness~~

For starters, we had Soupe à l'Oignon which tasted ohh-la-la....I love the strong onion tastes~~

The Crème de Champignons des Forêts aka Cream of Wild Forest Mushroom filled in a giant roll was perfectly CREAMY & YUMMY~~

Saumon "Bombay Saphire" ......Pan roasted Norwegian Salmon flamed with gin, vegetable and grilled asparagus in Cranberry cream sauce~~

Duo de Crevettes et Coquille Saint Jacques....Sautéed King Prawn and scallops~~

We're entertained by the in-house band with some lovely tunes from the Oldies~~~ How nice^~^

Something sour to flush down our food~~

What a marvellous dining experience~~~ Before leaving, I was presented with a rose complimentary of Chalet^~^ How lovely~~

More cam-whoring before leaving Equatorial Hotel with a happy happy stomach~~


  1. Chalet does sound very nice if you apply the name to those places that have wooden house! But here in Malaysia, let's just call them rumah papan :P
    what you need is a new digital camera with wide aperture value so that you can take great pictures in low light! Might cost a bomb but it's worthwhile... consider Canon Ixus 300HS... digital camera with dslr capabilities

  2. Haha...yeah, rumah kampung does sounds more familiar^~^
    Thanks for the advice!! Been asking around for advices~~ Yup, i was looking for a digital cam with dslr functions but minus the bulky weight...Will check the model up & probably save up!!
