Isthmus @ NorthPoint Mid Valley City [CLOSED]

After hearing so much of ravings about this place, we had finally step our foot into Isthmus KL. It was being featured in The Star just recently and boolicious has been there too. Isthmus Kl is actually inspired by Isthmus of Kra, one of the most sought-after venues in Melbourne. It was brought in by Penang-born Chef Beh Kim Un.

Think again if you bear the perception that it will burn a hole in your pocket. Isthmus offers lunch combination at a very reasonable price (RM 25++ to RM 55++) started with a soup of the day, followed by main dish and tea/coffee. However the choice for mains are limited.

The interior is very much like a trendy and stylish place for hang outs. The staircase leads you into a upper section with lounge where you can lay back and have a drink.

The bar area is filled with liqour of all kinds.

Lotus Blue Dumpling (RM 15) – The skin tastes very much like ang koo kueh (Chinese glutinous rice cake) and the minced chicken filing is good. The delicate dumplings are topped with garlic oil.

Caramelised chicken stock dippings

Soup of the day – Vietnam Beef Soup

Spring Chicken Medina – The marinated chicken was grilled to perfection, the skin is crispy and meat remains tender.

It comes with some small roasted potato balls and acar (spicy mixed vegetable pickles)

Isthmus is definitely our cup of tea. The ambience is trendy yet relaxing, the serving staff are attentive and the food are of great quality. The menu might be limited now, but I heard that more new dishes are coming out soon. Stay tuned for my second visit!

From the entrance of the Northcourt of Mid Valley Megamall, walk through the crossbridge then take the elevators down and you will see Isthmus across the courtyard.
