The Intercontinental which is about a 10-15 minute walk away from KLCC and the famed Petronas Towers. The hotel itself feels quite new and the service left me wanting to return.
The Intercontinental's I've stayed at across the world all feel consistent in terms of styling which is nice. The Malaysian branch definitely doesn't feel as dated compared to the hotel in Sydney but the Sydney views are phenomenal.
Jack Daniels Buffalo wings
These buffalo wings were pretty delectable. The marinate turned sauce was totally thick, sticky, sweet and finger lickin' good.
Cheeseburger, chips and salad
The cheeseburger wasn't bad at all and somewhat reminiscent, but not as good, as my beloved Mortons. To be expected, the food served in the bar wasn't cheap by local standards but was reasonable by Australia standards. Overall the food was pretty good and the bar itself was a nice place to unwind before heading back to your hotel room all but a measly few minutes away.

Nam Heong Chicken Rice
Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore which many would argue isn't that great. Chicken rice is such a simple dish that it's about preference really. I feel chicken rice is definitely not as good in Sydney so I love ordering it when I'm in Singapore and Malaysia. If you're in the Chinatown area give Nam Heong a go but either way, just order Hainanese chicken rice if you're in the country.

The coffee wasn't too bad at Ben's but after two weeks abroad I was definitely missing coffee in Australia.
Traditional English Afternoon Tea for Two - buttery scones with preserves and pure cream, assortment of finger sandwiches, quiche, passionfruit marshmallow and chocolate truffles, homemade cookies, chocolate cake and choice of tea or coffee
Ryan and I bit off a little more than we could chew with this afternoon tea spread but it was one of the last days of our holiday so we figured why not. Unfortunately for us they had run out of quiches for the day so were served little muffins instead. Afternoon tea was actually quite lovely and we were royally stuffed. The rich, decadent chocolate cake definitely tipped us over the edge and I would hope in the time since I was there they have begun serving the cake at the end of the meal because the ice cream melts everywhere.
