Five Senses @ Westin Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

It is true that downtown Kuala Lumpur has tons of restaurants, so why come here? The answer is the spanking new restaurant with an aesthetic menu that tinkers with classic Cantonese food, just enough to make things interesting for your 5 senses. 
Behold the sense of sight, an open kitchen that flirts with your stomach. 
House Made Bean Curd Pancake with Black Fungus (RM33) - The meatless option spotlight a house made bean curd pancake with some black fungus.

Wok Fried Australian Scallops with X.O. Sauce and Asparagus (RM58) - Not quite a vegetarian yet? Pair your greens with some fresh scallops, stir fry with X.O. sauce. 
Honey Glazed Black Cod with Teriyaki Jus (RM68) - Despite the Japanese heredity, this superlative cod fish fits perfectly in the menu.
Pan Seared Stuffed Prawn with Enoki Mushrooms in Honey Maki Jus (RM68) - The enoki mushroom was tucked between the sizzling fresh prawns. 10/10 for taste but 0/10 for plating. 
Carving the peking duck can be a meticulous process, but is a well appreciated art.
Famous Authentic Traditional Peking Duck in Two Series (RM108) - Series 1: Not all Peking Duck are created equally good. This dish was less dazzling compared to its peers, with wraps that were a tad too thick.

Secret Home Made Crispy World Class Pork Belly (RM33) - Wait for 30 minutes and crackles with some pork belly, as it goes round and round your plate. 
Fried Noodles with Duck Meat - Series 2: Empty spaces will be filled with this gigantic plate of noodles. 

Verdict: SOMEWHAT SMITTEN

Smitten Dishes:
Honey Glazed Black Cod with Teriyaki Jus
House Made Bean Curd Pancake with Black Fungus
