Marquee Lounge, Bukit Bintang with StarHero

So last Thursday, I was invited to my first food tasting event at Marquee Lounge by StarHero
If you don't know about StarHero yet, you should!
Because StarHerois the most popular and widely used rating and review site in South-East Asia, bringing together all the best reviews of places you like in one common web and mobile service, so you can enjoy and explore the best places near you.

It is said that it is something like Trip Advisor except it is local based. As in local people (like Malaysians) write reviews and what they think about the service that the place provides. If you're living or working in KL, I think it is high time you check this page out and sign up for yourself.


It's my first time in BB park and I rarely go there. If I did, the destination would either be Pavillion or Low Yat. But anyway, it's been a few months since I entered KL. They don't have a parking bay for BB park so I parked in one of the hotel car-park instead and it cost me RM8 (flat rate) per entry.

The lounge
Before I went there, I googled this place up and at first, I thought it looked like a club rather than a place that actually serves food. So, when I went there and look at the place myself, I think it is quite cozy and really suitable for hangouts (for dinner hours). The music they played was favorable and the service was really good. The staff are very friendly and attentive too, so we felt really welcomed. 

Avomela Salad
Lettuce, apples, avocados and walnuts covered in tangerine dressing
I'm a salad person and I think this salad has really good combination of ingredients. Though the salad they served on my plate tasted a bit bland. I can't really taste the dressing for that matter. Maybe they didn't mix it well enough. Nevertheless, it is still a great starter.

BBQ Chicken Potato Skins
Crispy potato skins with BBQ chicken and topped with our home-made coleslaw.
All I can show you is imageimageimage. I'm completely swoon by this dish. Although it seems simple, the potato is well cooked and it complements the BBQ chicken very well. 

Sarawak Laksa
Rice noodles with prawns, strips of chicken, omelette with our thick seasoned gravy.
It's my first time trying Sarawak Laksa but the soup is really very thick and heavy. I was expecting something like Asam Laksa but it's a completely different thing. This was kind of salty for me and too heavy for my taste-buds.

Nasi Lemak 
Fragrant basmati rice steamed freshly squeezed pandan leaves and coconut milk, curry chicken accompanied by homemade Sambal belacan, kangkong, fried anchovies and nuts.
This was no ordinary nasi lemak. Have a try and you'll know what I mean. A must eat for nasi lemak lovers out there!

Hainanese Chicken Chop 
Breaded and fried boneless chicken, served with a braised tomato sauce with carrots and peas. Served with fries and coleslaw.
What I like about their chicken chop is that they didn't coat it with too much flour. Other than that, nothing special to say about this. 

Mystery Box Burger
Chicken patty mixed with secret recipe,lettuce tomatoes and onions.
You wouldn't be disappointed with their patty because it was thick. As in thick thick. I'm no burger expert so I'm not really sure what to comment on this. 

Tommy Gun Burger
A piece of french toast, topped with an all beef patty and covered in brown gravy
This was my first time seeing a patty served on french toast. So creative! How come I never thought of that?? Again, they were really generous on the quantity. The meat was very juicy and a little bitter.

Pappardelle pasta served with strips of chicken fillet, red bell peppers and peas, coated in special light tomato sauce. 
 This is my favorite dish of the night. (It kinda reminds me of "pan mee". Haha.) It has a very chewy texture and the sauce was perfect! 

Pizza Diavola 
Beef salami, chilies, cheese, oregano and tomato's.
 Pizza Marinara
Prawns, squid, mussels with cheese, oregano and tomato's
The pizza was very thin. Is this a trend nowadays? I'm not sure but I keep seeing thin crust pizza getting served lately. I think it looked more like a snack to me. I didn't like the Marinara as it tasted fishy to me.
(FYI, I don't really like mussels or squid. image)

I give Marquee Lounge a rating of

Fellow bloggers and StarHeroes!

Invited Sylvia and Grace along and gosh, it's been a long while since I last saw Grace! So happy to get to see her again after so long.
 Food taste so much better when you have great companies right? image

Amanda and I. One of the intern in StarHero.
These was the only photos I have in my phone. I went back early and miss the chance to camwhore and talk to the other bloggers. I guess I'll save that for another time.

If you're interested in a drink or finding a new place to have one, maybe this will help you. I'm not into drinking so I don't really know if it's a good deal or what. image

It's my first time being invited to a real blogger event and I was so excited (and nervous)! And I have to tell you, this post is long overdue. I'm so sorry for dragging it till now! It's already a week since the event had happened. I was so busy for the whole week because of my Bangkok Trip and my other stuffs. Didn't have time to sit down right in front of my desktop for a proper blog post.
But thanks again StarHerofor inviting me! If you're interested in other reviews or would like to join these events (like myself), please go to StarHero facebook page for more info.
