Skillet@163, Fraser Place

Skillet @163 has been awarded as the best European restaurant in 2015 by TimeOut Kuala Lumpur. They successfully outclassed Albion KL, Mercat Barcelona Gastrobar, Soleil and Yeast Bistronomy which are all worthy opponents. For your information, European cuisine means food from all around Europe including Eastern Europe and Scandinavian countries.
They just come onto scene last year by taking over Mediteca at Fraser Place and managed to secure everyone's heart to secure the award. This fine dining restaurant does provide smoking section for their smoking patrons.
They do have second floor which is opened when they have a lot of customers or special event only. This is also the first time for my boy to dine in a fine dining western restaurant.
They do give complimentary appetizer (above), a mocktail and a creme brulee as our dessert too. We did not order a set lunch but somehow we received all these which makes me wondering how do they determine to serve these. I have been to some restaurants giving complimentary appetizer, bread or mocktail but this is the first restaurant that serves complimentary dessert too. All of them were really delicious.
Soup of the day @RM18.87++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - Smooth, creamy and with full of mushroom fragrance in it. Not to forget the exciting mushroom bits in it to give me a little chewing job to do. It was a really good soup.


Baked Chicken Satay Penne @RM33.02++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - I love this daring combination by combining one of our Malaysian favourite local food, satay together with baked cheese penne. The satay was really delicious, they should have serve at least 3 instead of just one. While the penne is very fragrant which comes from the cheese and a little spiciness in it. 

Morrocan Spiced Chicken @RM31.14++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - It was a little too dry for me and it is a breast meat which means hard to chew. I do not really like this dish.

You might have noticed with the weird pricing which I wrote based on the receipt I got. Usually this kind of pricing is inclusive of GST and service charge. However according to my receipt, it was not. The menu is definitely not showing that kind of price tag but I cannot remember what is the exact price stated on their menu. I only noticed it when I started to write this post. If you are happened to dine here, please take extra note on their receipt. Overall, this restaurant does serve a decent food and provide an absolutely friendly service. Just that I might have ordered the wrong food for my taste.
Total Damage: RM96.80
Ambiance: 4/5

Will I Revisit?: No but recommended
