We paid a visit to Marble 8 along Jalan Binjai, famed for it’s dry-aged steaks and sunset cocktails.
Stepping through the glass doors, guests are greeted by a classy interior with leather chairs and wine glasses set on the tables. If you have a sensitive nose, you might pick up the faint scent of the beef that’s being dry-aged in the special room that’s fully viewable from the seating area. Should you prefer not to see how your meat was prepared, you can choose to sit outside at the garden area for an al fresco dining experience with a great view of the Petronas Twin Towers.
We sampled the Prime Rib on the bone (RM890++) which was highly recommended, and were not disappointed. The prime rib looked absolutely majestic with its simple presentation with several sauces and accompanying dishes on the side. Once all 1,100g was sliced into manageable servings by our waiter and presented on our plates, we dug in eagerly. The outer layer of the beef had a beautiful smokiness to it with a slight crunch, due to the beef having been dry-aged. As with most high-end steakhouses, the meat is mostly left untouched, save for some sprinkled sea salt and stalks of rosemary for subtle flavouring. Tender, flavourful and crave-inducing, this is one steak we’d be going back for more.
For a sweet ending, we indulged in Mocha entremets with hazelnut sauce and cocoa biscuit (RM45++). As the name suggests, it was a delightfully chocalatey and Nutella-reminiscent dish thanks to the hazelnut sauce. Creamy, soft and super rich, we loved how it rounded up the dinner satisfyingly.
Marble 8 is a great place to entertain, bring a date or celebrate a family night out. You can start your evening at M8 Bar with some cocktails while enjoying the sunset view outdoors, then move indoors to have a nice dinner.
