Kenny Hills Hospitality Group is a name that needs no further introduction in the food and dining industry. The brand, which is famous for its cafe and bakery Kenny Hills Baker, has introduced Kenny Hills Bistro to KL folks and beyond recently. Located in Four Seasons Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, the new must-try dining spot is making waves among discerning foodies. Wanna know if it’s worth the hype? Read on as we reviewed the dishes served at Kenny Hills Bistro!Disclaimer: While there is no alcohol used in the dishes, the restaurant serves alcoholic beverages. We’ve checked and there is no risk of cross-contamination as the bar is separated from the kitchen. We recommend you dine at your own risk.Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates:https://bit.ly/3LnFN1FIf you’re heading to the restaurant from the basement parking, you can easily find your way — go to the ground floor and walk past Leekaja Salon (you won’t miss it, it’s the one with plants everywhere!). The restaurant is also only a couple of minutes walk from KLCC, so you can take the LRT to get here as well! 

The ambience

The restaurant has a cosy and chill vibe that’s perfect for catching up with friends or dining with your family. We loved that the restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating! Especially when you get a premium view of the KLCC Tower 😉 We loved how spacious the restaurant was, especially if you want to dine with a large group! There are an open-view kitchen, and comfy seating areas with wood furnishings, making it a cosy spot perfect for both celebratory group dinners and intimate dates. As a sweet tooth aficionados, we loved the pastry and dessert bar — rows of mouth-watering tarts and cakes sit prettily on their shelves, waiting to be picked up 😋

The food

Kenny Hills Bistro is an all-day dining spot serving its patrons everything from breakfast and brunch to dinner, including a variety of shareable lunch options. The kitchen is led by Head Chef, Ika Hamzah who has an impressive 13 years of experience in the kitchens of several European restaurants in Kuala Lumpur including a seven-year stint as sous-chef at Nathalie’s Gourmet Studio. So, you know you’re in for a treat! 

What we had at Kenny Hills Bistro

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

First up, we had the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (RM36) to start our meal. You might think a salad would not make you feel full, but the Caesar salad portion at Kenny Hills Bistro is huge! Crispy romaine lettuce is completed with grilled chicken breast and sprinkled with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese — perfect if you’re looking for something light yet fulfilling.

Crackling French Toast

You’ll find some Kenny Hills Baker’s items here as well and this is one of them. The Crackling French Toast (RM32) is part of their breakfast and lunch menu (available from 10am - 3pm). True to its name, the brioche’s brûléed crust is perfectly toasted and crispy! It’s served with mixed summer berry compote, honeycomb and homemade maple cinnamon ice cream. The ice cream goes well together with the warm toast — perfect to start your day with! If you’re a fan of something sweet in the morning, this one’s for you! 

Eggs Arrabiata

If you prefer something savoury for breakfast, then the Eggs Arrabiata (RM32) is the one for you. Spicy tomato sauce, chicken merguez sausages and baked eggs are cooked together in a cast-iron pan and served with toast. The flavour is rich and the smoky flavour of the sausages is perfectly balanced by the spicy tomato sauce. 10/10 would order this again!

Lamb Ragu and Hand-cut Pappardelle

You know that question, “If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?” The answer to this question is the Lamb Ragu and Hand-cut Pappardelle (RM56). The simple dish of tomato sauce and Parmesan with pieces of delectable lamb slices are the ultimate comfort food that the Italians would totally agree with us.

Smoked Duck Carbonara 

The Smoked Duck Carbonara (RM39) might give the lamb ragu pasta a run for its money. If you’re more of a white sauce kinda person, then this carbonara is perfect for you. Creamy carbonara coats hand-cut pappardelle are topped with smoked duck and sprinkled with a generous amount of pangrattato, making it the perfect carbo-loading meal you need!

Wagyu Beef Burger

This one is for beef lovers! The Wagyu Beef Burger (RM68) is so flavourful and juicy with the perfect caramelized crust! The homemade patty is topped with caramelised onions, and king oyster mushroom, served on a brioche bun, with homemade fries and a cornichon. The truffle aioli adds an extra kick. We loved the non-fuss burger as we can truly taste the flavourful wagyu patty. You can request the doneness as well! 

The sweet finish

We tried the Yuzu Citrus Tart (RM25) and the fresh and tangy taste of citrus is the perfect finish to our meal. We also tried the 72% Molten Valrhona Chocolate Fondant (RM28). Nothing says delectable than warm gooey chocolate paired with vanilla bean ice cream! Long-time Kenny Hills fans, worry not, as some of their classics are available here such as the famous Peach Strudels and the Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake. There are also Kenny Hills Bistro exclusives such as Croissant Cube, Match Raspberry, Dark Chocolate Mousse and more!

The huge portions! Sure, the prices are quite expensive for a casual meal but you can share it with your group of friends or family as the portions are shareable. It’s definitely a perfect restaurant to celebrate special occasions or to impress your loved one 😉Another reason to visit Kenny Hills Bistro KL is that they also serve the famous Beef Wellington at a more affordable (as affordable as beef wellingtons get!) at RM240 for two pax.
