Oh Mai Bar-becue @ Mai Bar, Aloft KL Sentral

After a long week of hectic work schedule especially on this beginning stage of the GST implementation which really increases my workloads. I was literally dead-tired after work hours so when the buddies called for a happy hour session I was happily accepted it!

We arrived at Mai Bar located at Rooftop level, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral on at Friday evening. Being my first visit I was pretty impressed by the interior of this Polynesian themed bar.

I was greeted by a groovy and funky filled space once I stepped into Mai Bar. The red lighted bar in wavy shape commands the attention to everyone who walks in.

The alfresco lounge screams for attention too. Surrounded by Tiki totems, overlooking the infinity pool accompanied by the splendid KL’s skyline.

 

The music was jazzing up and the crowd started trickling in, we had a few their signature cocktails to set the right mood to welcome our Friday night!

The culinary team in Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral has whipped up a really good barbecue spread in Mai Bar and we definitely didn’t want to miss the chance to savor some of them.

Texas Styled Beef with Pineapple and Herbs & Cajun Tiger Prawns served with corn on the cob, baked potatoes and grilled vegetables. I love the bouncy fresh prawns, slightly seasoned and I can tasted the original flavor of the crustacean. There are also 3 dipping of mushroom sauce, black pepper sauce and BBQ sauce for that extra oomph for your skewers.

Turkish Style Chicken Breast with Paprika and Yogurt & Greek Style Barbecued Squid with Olive Oil

With live cooking at the barbecue pit, the skewers are guaranteed to be freshly grilled with all the juicy goodness in it. The squid had a soft chewy texture, nicely infused with herbs and marinade. The chicken breast was equally tantalizing. Marinaded with the unique paprika and yogurt, the chicken breast remained its tenderness with robust herbaceous taste.

The availability of quail was quite surprised us, the petite bird was grilled to perfection with flavorful skin and succulent flesh hidden beneath.

Verdict: Certainly a great happy hour spot to unwind and laid back with a glass of their special concocted cocktail. I especially recommend the outdoor seats which can admiring the city’s night views with a nice breeze while chilling out.
