KLGCC’s Fiery Friday Poolside BBQ Fiesta

If you fancy spending some quality time with your friends or family by the poolside, sipping beer/wine/beverage of your choice while enjoying a range of delectable BBQ spread, you should absolutely check out the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC)’s poolside party, now on every Friday evening.

Gorgeous pool!

In conjunction with the Interntional Women’s Day, KLGCC organised a special Fiery Friday Poolside BBQ Fiesta and I was honoured to receive an invitation to attend the party. As it was a special night, there were a few treats for the guests. But of course, let’s take a look at the awesome spread first. I shall start with the meat choices; after all, BBQ is the star attraction here.

Chef Arnold Kwok, Executive Chef of KLGCC has led his team to create many mouth-watering delights. And I was even more impressed to find out that most of these things are Paleo friendly, using premium ingredients and mostly fit with clean eating principles. In fact Chef Arnold spotted me and told me I would have plenty of choices there, as we talked about my diet choice. He was right!

To whet our appetite, Chef Arnold also created an interesting welcome drink:

Spicy Passion Mocktail, with chili flakes for extra kick! It’s very thirst quenching indeed.

 

The Meats:

Garlic Marinated Australian Chilled Beef Striploin, served with Chimichurri Sauce
Sesame Soy Australian Beef Short Ribs, served with Garlic Chili Sauce.

 

Missed out the picture of the Whole Spit Lamb though.

Chicken Leg Golek Bumbu Cabai, served with Sweet Calamansi Chili Sauce, Fans of Chicken Breasts can opt for the Grilled Balsamic Chicken Breast instead.
Beef and Chicken Satay
Chicken Sausage and Apple Yakitori

The Seafood:

Charcoal Smoked Fresh Salmon with Dill, served with Cucumber Yogurt Mint and Cilantro King Mackerel, served with Lemon Wedges Grilled Spicy Garlic Butter Shrimps, Lemon Wedges
Garlic Butter Shrimps

 

Snapper Tikka, served with Coconut Chutney Braai and Apricot Chili Jam
Griddle Squid Aglio Olio, Tomato Salsa

Interestingly, all of the meat and seafood is paired with their individual sauce, gotta love the attention to details here.

To fulfill the vegetable quota, here are some of the Starters and Salads (listed in the order of my own preferences):

Coconut Milk Frittata
Raw Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad, looks exactly like something I always make at home!
Cucumber with Jicama, Almonds and Sesame Salad
Sweet Potato Salad with Pumpkin Seed and Egg
Potato Salad

Of course, what I ate for the evening. Brace yourself because I think I did overeat… just a little.

The Starter Plate.

I enjoyed all the salads and loved the frittata. I say the even if you don’t eat meat, you’ll be very happy here too. If you absolutely must eat starch, there is a lovely looking steamed multigrain rice, and potatoes cooked in various styles.

Seafood Plate.

The Salmon is amazing! Exquisitely soft with the distinctive aroma of dill, made even better with the cucumber yoghurt.

The everything else plate.

I was most impressed with how everything was cooked well, and for someone who doesn’t like much of red meat, I sure ate enough Iron for that night. The Striploin with chimicurri sauce is my favourite, and I didn’t even mind the lamb (usually too gamey for me). The Squid, on the other hand, was super popular that night. Not surprising though because it’s so tender, and seasoned perfectly. Yum.

I will admit that I sample a little bit of desserts too, how can you not when the dessert spread looks like this?

Sweet Heaven right here.

Food aside, we were entertained by DJ Patricia K, who was also Emcee for the night.

Looking beautiful as always.

And there was a special performance by KLGCC’s in-house band Acoustic Fourplay, a versatile band which has been in the scene for a long time. Being the daredevil I am, I went and have a chat with the boys and found out we do have some mutual friends (even my own band member, haha KL is too damn small).

These boys are good! We were thoroughly entertained and towards the end I was invited to sing a couple of songs too. That was fun.
