Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to The X for some of their signature dishes under the revamped new menu that launched not too long ago. The new Head Chef Zamri Zainol has a wealth of experience spanning 24 years in the F&B industry. He has been part of some of Malaysia’s finest 5 star kitchen hotels like The Datai Langkawi and the Ritz Carlton Kuala Lumpur.
Located in the happening area of Bangsar (opposite Bangsar Village), The X is all about good eats, fresh beats, and great peeps. They serve delicious soul food and premium drinks for you to enjoy with good company, while being entertained with amazing music, be it the R&B genre that they are famous for or some slick lounge beats on the days when the vibe is that bit more chill.
I am not into duck dishes but this Smoked Duck Wakame (RM22) really surprised me with its tender sliced duck breast meat, flavoured with Mizkan sauce and ebiko for that savoury sourish taste.
These Mini Burgers are perfect to share for group dining. Available in chicken patty (RM24), beef patty (RM28), and my personal favourite juicy lamb patty (RM30), all sliders are served with Japanese bamboo charcoal buns.
For light eaters, you can opt for this Black Pepper Chicken Wrap (RM28) that contains crispy chicken strips, mixed salad, tomato, cucumber, and sliced cheese. I usually will get this dish if I in a hurry and need a quick lunch, simple but tasty and filling.
For group dining, I like to order Pizza for sharing purpose. Whether is Mushroom, Chicken Sesame, Spiced Beef Pepperoni, Smoked Salmon or Mutton Masala, the selection of pizza offered at The X will not disappoint you with delicious flavour and generous toppings.
Some real good stuff for the meat aficionados, the beefy-licious X Steak (RM60) with 180g of Australian Rib Eye, roasted potatoes, buttered broccoli, and black pepper gravy. We requested it to be medium rare, and the steak was nicely cooked to satisfy our meat cravings.
A nicely grilled Barramundi (RM48) for the fish lovers, served together with chick peas, red chilies, coriander, onion and lime juice.
The X also serves some Asian delights to satisfy the diverse palates of their customers, such as Seafood Mee Mamak, Boss Fried Rice, and this chef recommended The X Angel Laksa (RM26) with lots of ingredients like tuna, red chillies, Japanese cucumber, boiled egg, mint leaf, shallot, lime, and crab meat in a very addictive Laksa broth.
My glass of Survivor (RM32) that consists of vodka, apple liquor, apple juice, lime juice and Shott Apple. Other creatively mixed The X Cocktails that you should not miss include Drunk In Love, No Diggity, Dillema, Gin & Juice, When Doves Cry, Ain’t No Sunshine, and 24K Magic. Judging by the names, can you guess what are these cocktails made of? 😉
