Karl's Beisl, SohoKL, Solaris, Mont Kiara

Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal

A few months ago. Yes, this happened about 4 months ago. Nicole reminded me that I still haven't fulfill my promise of buying her lunch after our group won the Project Trafford blogging contest. So, getting her for lunch in her busy schedule traveling all over the region is quite difficult. Lucky, she's free on that particular day. At first I planned to eat at Dubrovnik but they were closed (maybe it's their lunch break), we only reached SohoKL around 2.30 pm. I recommended Karl's Beisl, which serves Austrian cuisine.

We shared a soup because Nicole is not a big eater. We both love this Cream of roasted Garlic & Red Pepper with Rosemary (RM 15). Creamy yet not too jelak. The garlic taste is quite rich, which I like. Recommended soup for you soup lover out there. Oh, their complimentary bread is very nice too.

Nicole ordered Pork Tenderloin with Wild Mushroom Sauce (might not be the right name because I forgot already :p). She can't finish the whole thing, so I have to help to eat. Not too bad, the sauce is very nice and the pork tenderloin is very tender. I can finish half of it even after I had my Pork Cordon Bleu.

My Pork Cordon Bleu is not too bad either. Just a little bit dry on the meat. We like the sides, especially the potato wedges. The cucumber salad is nice too.

There's ham and cheese inside the roll pork meat. Very typical Cordo Bleu style.

They have a wide range of red and white wine here to choose from. We of course drank only plain water lol.

On another day, I went for dinner at Karl's Beisl before I go to watch Chelsea vs Manchester United in 3D. It was a Samsung 3D LED TV event happening at SohoKL. Craving for half a pint of Hoegaarden White so I chose Karl's Beisl. There's a few European beer available.

This time I ordered Double Pork Chop, one of the more expensive item from the menu. You get to choose two side dishes for free. You can have more than two with additional charge and each side has a different price. I chose stir-fried broccoli with pine nuts and sauteed wild mushrooms.

A balance of meat and lard. Superb.

One bite into the tender pork chop, and I was certain that it's one of the best pork chop I ever had. The pork chop was char-grilled and there's a slightly burnt aroma left on the pork chop which enhanced the meat juice and fat. I like the fact that the cut is not only meat alone which will make the chop a bit too dry, there's like a 30% fat too. This is the cut that I like.

The sides are very nice too. I like the broccoli and pine nuts very much. I found the sauteed wild mushroom a bit too salty, if not it will be perfect. I of course down my dinner with the Hoegaarden White.

To watch the Samsung 3D LED TV, you'll need the special Samsung 3D glasses, which is not cheap.

Can't see any 3D here. lol.

Without the 3D glasses you'll see shadow image.

Sir Alex Ferguson in 3D yo!

All of you know that Chelsea won the match in Old Trafford. Ironically, Samsung is main sponsor of Chelsea, so most of the people there are happy.
