LUXURIOUSLY KOBE available from 13 – 26 OCTOBER

While waiting for another great food review session at Le Meridien, I have tried the illy Coffee for the first time. Suggested by the lovely waitress, Cappuccino is one of the best on the menu. Look how cute! The coffee taste is strong and the most important is that the coffee texture is smooth. It is unique and delicious.

There is a taste, a feel, an aroma that is all illy’s own. Velvety, immediately sweet, delicately balancing floral and fruity notes with caramel, toast and chocolate, naturally fragrant with aromas of almond and honey.  You just might hold the sugar, for the very first time.

Now, let us back to the main character for tonight.

Kobe beef is certainly one of the must try for anyone visiting Japan, along with the Matsusaka and the Ohmi beef. These three are indeed the best in the world. But now, grab this chance to try out the Master Kobe Beef here at Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu before it’s too late! Last day of offers is 26th October 2014. 

We started our food review by having a light starter. Bread with butter, tuna, and balsamic vinegar. The bread is so soft and it goes well with the tuna. This trio is a sinful spread! 

Also, we have tried the Flames Steak Restaurant's Wild Mushroom Soup. The first sip was delightful. Well, I am a soup person and not everywhere in KK that you can find mouth watering soup. It was smooth and there's no chucks; my plate was squeaky clean!

Le Meridien also offers the Pink Mocktail till 31 October
In conjunction with the Breast Cancer month, enjoy the delicious Pinktober Pleasures, a vibrant concoction of pink guava, key lime and raspberry at Sante Hour or as a refreshing drink throughout this month of October!

Now, here comes the real deal.
