Maximise Lunch @ Max! Kitchen & Wines

I still remember having this lunch with Nic and Xiu Long Bao (it's been a year! Hahaha...) and that's how long I've not been to Max! The floggers have had several different gatherings here, always enjoying the food and the hospitality of Max himself. Looking at these photos, I'm reminded to drop by Max! especially for the great lunch deals if I ever have the luxury of time to go downtown during lunch hour and also the extra time needed so that I can slowly savour Max's food! I would also like to check out what's new on the menu after a year. Not sure if these dishes are still available :p

Anyway, the three of us checked out Max! for lunch and had the set meals - A choice of a starter, main & ice lemon tea for just RM22! I have always enjoyed eating at Max! as I not only find the food very satisfying but a great visual treat too (and with lovely aroma! If only there were Scratch n' Sniff stickers of Max's food! Hahahah...). Not much words are needed....enjoy the pics! :o)

Yummy Bread

The usual bread that we totally ate up, dipping
into the olive oil and balsamic vinegar!

Smoked Salmon
Smoked salmon served with mesclun greens,
capsicum salsa and balsamic reduction.

Seared Tuna Loin with Baby Octopus
Nic opted for something out of the set menu -
the Seared Tuna Loin with Baby Octopus, a beauty!

Chargrilled Chicken Breast
Chargrilled Chicken Breast with Wild Mushrooms, the gravy hit the spot &
my love for mushrooms was definitely reciprocated in this dish! Hahaha....

Whole Market Fish Pan Seared
XLB's Whole Market Fish, pan seared laced with fresh tomatoes, garlic
and caper berries. She found this rather disappointing (as she usually
does with most of her food!) and said that the dish was rather normal.

White Chocolate Tart
If one orders the set, there's an option to add the White Chocolate Tart,
served with marinated fresh fruits & ice cream for an additional RM10.

worldwindows said...

The tuna and baby octopuses is a sight to behold.

Sugar Bean said...

I have to say that their presentation is really special. But somehow the whole market fish looks a bit scary. Hehe! Anyway, will keep this restaurant in our list.

Cokeworld Citizen said...

OMG RM22 oni?? Very the value! So fast time zooms by...I also remember Jason's photo series when he was dining with u guys.

wmw said...

Tummythoz : No, coz the place has limited seating!

KBCG : Update! :o)

worldwindows : Yup, pretty ain't it?

Sugar Bean : Hey there! Yah, which again affirms why I don't like to eat fish! hahaha....

Cokeworld Citizen : Yes, it has. But seems like it was just yesterday though. :o)
