Max.@ iHaus Western Fine Dining @ Jalan Jati, Off Jalan Bukit Bintang, KL

Foodie Girl here.

Your one and only source into the Scandalous Appetite of KL’s elite.

Spotted:
Double C were out on a New Year’s Dinner meeting up their elite acquaintances: KB and CG. The Sugar was back from the country that has reached about -8 by now (yes.. it’s UK) with the Bean, but Bean skipped dinner. A came with her.
Pause.
I am getting confused myself with all the alphabets. Let’s use names. Great. I failed imitating Gossip Girl badly. Let’s not attempt it again.
Ok. To keep it simple.
We planned a fine dining dinner at Max on New Year’s Day, intending to celebrate Chris’s and Aiwei’s Birthday as well, which turned out really well as we enjoyed the food, the homey ambiance as well as each others company; gossiping and made fun with lame jokes.

Max. Who has never heard of it? We’re pretty sure almost no one will hands up.
Used to be known as Max! Kitchen &Wines nestled around Tengkat Tong Shin, they are now relocated to iHaus; a German Interior Showhaus, a bungalow that haus international brand names in furniture. They have ample parking space for patrons & a large garden with really green grass.
It’s my sideline when it comes to elaborating reasons.
Reasons behind the Merriment!

#1 Max @ iHaus
Expect to feel pioneering upon entering the iHaus, as you’ll be greeted by a dining room filled with different interior settings, let it be furnitures and home decos. There was also sections of living room with different contemporary sofa seats and furnitures potraying a prevailing fixtures fashion of modern days like today.

#2 Fine Dining – although Chris’s wallet was screaming ‘Ouch!’
Elites do this often. We self-declared we are. Although it’s the name Elite that we love.
We tried the Max’s Menu Degustation  for RM120 per pax, that came with a set of 3 starters, a main course, a dessert and a glass of Itallian Batasiolo Cascine Prosecco. This 5 course tasting menu is created by their daily availability of the fresh ingredients, and the starters were all based on chef’s recommendations.
Needless to say, we were very satisfied.
We might be elites with scandoulous appetite. But there’s always a limit. So we decided not to waste food and ordered 3 Max’s Menu Degustation along with 3 other ala cartes.

 #3 Birthdays
They said Capricorns are practical, prudent, ambitious, disciplined, patient and careful, humorous and reserved.

 Their presents were also very practical and useful.

#4 Being self-claimed elites. We’re best friends.

Verdict: Food was great, although we thought that their scallops could be tastier. Worth visiting 🙂

One’s image can sit enthroned among the bustle of this threatless realm, being king in your own domain, that’s what people comsidered to be superior in a society usually feel and do. The elites.
We’re all elites in our own way.
Just remember to strive for it and seek opportunity. Not the other way round.
And who am I?
That’s another secret I’ll never tell.
You know you love me.
