Thanks to invitation by V-Liam of Plaza Premium lounge, i got the change to visit Fight Club, their new airport dining establishment located in KLIA Satellite terminal, it is located pass immigration and custom checking, and need to take Aerotrain to reach this restaurant.

Due to me not traveling on that day, but was coming solely for a “leisure trip” to KLIA to review this restaurant, V-Liam helped me to retrieve our security pass to enter KLIA Satellite building…

For those on long haul trip to Europe etc, your flight will most probably leave from KLIA satellite building, do try out this new restaurant which offers many food and beverage choices at a reasonable price.

the grand looking Flight club restaurant which spans four shop lots! It is located just opposite Plaza Premium Lounge

The menu of this restaurant is herb and seed inspired, ie the dishes has herbs/seeds in it, namely Rosemary, Flaxseed, Pumpkin Seed, Oregano, chia Seed, Sesame Seed, Mint Leaves, Pandan Leaves, Turmeric, Basil, Lemongrass

Our signature juices, RM16 each, comes in big tall glass

Charge Me Up (on the left): Grapefruit, Pineapple, Lemon, Lime and Lemongrass

Go With The Flow (on the right): Beetroot, Carrot, Apple, Lemon, Mint Leaf

The beetroot drink doesn’t taste as bad as it may sounds, as it is mixed with carrot,apple,lemon as well

KLIA_Flight_Club_12

6 Celcius Fresh Cameron Highland tomato soup, RM12, normally comes in a bowl, chef jazzed up the presentation for this food review. For a tomato juice lover like me, it is yummy, just wish there is more of it 😉 there is a surprise tang from the calamansi sorbet inside the tomato soup

KLIA_Flight_Club_13

Papaya salad dressed in roasted ground peanut, tamarind sauce and mint leave, RM12, love the accidental bites of mint leave in this salad, RM12

True to the theme of this restaurant being herb and seed inspired, there are peanut, pine nuts, mint leave etc in this salad

KLIA_Flight_Club_14

Hydroponic Baby Cos “Caesar’s Style”, RM16, the recommended appetiser, marked with an paper aeroplane icon in the menu, with Parmagiano-Reggiano, crisp baby cos leaves, and added orange and grapefruit segments make this an enjoyable salad. The baby cos are really crunchy and fresh and i really enjoy this salad

KLIA_Flight_Club_15

Prawn risotto, RM30, suitable for those fond of rich and cheesy mains.

KLIA_Flight_Club_16

Squid Ink Pasta, RM25, the pasta is made in-house and coated in a garlicy-tomatoey sauce, i like the asian twist of added cilantro sprigs

KLIA_Flight_Club_17

Vegetarian fried rice, RM20, fried rice surrounded by hos of superfood: chia seed, pine nut. pistachio, sesame seed, raisin etc

KLIA_Flight_Club_18

The Englishman’s fish & chips, RM26, river fish coated with multigrain seed batter with thick straight cut fries

KLIA_Flight_Club_19

Lamb Stew, RM35, lamb mince stew with seasonal vegetables and soft tortilla, the lamb stew taste a bit too salty for me

KLIA_Flight_Club_20

Grilled Sutchi Fillet, RM30, yummy fish on a bed of refreshing sourish tomato salsa

KLIA_Flight_Club_21

East Meets West, RM16, a creamy avocado in cheese mornay sauce and smoked chicken ham, top with coconut milk and herbs croutons, a bit too rich me, suitable for those who loves cheesy rich food

KLIA_Flight_Club_22

1824 beef cheek, RM42, yum~~~ soft fork-tender beef cheek braised in beef jus, served with couscous, buttered brocolli and miso gravy, this is just a sample portion for us, the actual portion of this dish will be bigger

KLIA_Flight_Club_23

beetroot ice cream with cheesecake, RM15, a wallet friendly price for such a nice plate of dessert, this whole plate of dessert feels really healthy, the cheesecake is only lightly-sweeteneed for one, and not forgetting the homemade beetroot ice cream. I don’t really like the beetroot ice cream, but it is a good experience. The beetroot ice cream taste natural sweetness from fresh beetroot and taste very lightly sweeten, good for people who are health-conscious

KLIA_Flight_Club_24

The highlight of the entire meal, if i could have only 1 thing from this restaurant, i would come for the ice cream, RM10 each scoop. The cempedak ice cream is like nothing i have ever taste before, it is intense and taste naturally sweet, it is the more fragrant and yummy “cousin” to the milder nangka/jackfruit. The one of the left is white sesame ice cream, taste really good as well. Both looks very similar in color, and they are both really good that i will want the whole scoop to myself, no sharing for this one…

view towards to open kitchen, there are charging docks in the middle of the restaurant

KLIA_Flight_Club_27

in one corner of the restaurant are rosemary infused water, hot water and diamond water. If you pay RM18 <if not mistaken>, you can have free-flow from salad bar buffet, soup and the waters in above pic.

KLIA_Flight_Club_28

Salad buffet bar (mixed salad leaves, mixed fruits, pasta salad, cherry tomato)

Overall, i like this restaurant for its comfortable environment, Free WIFI etc, dishes which i recommend are firstly their must-try cempedak ice cream and white sesame ice cream. Other dishes to order are the cold tomato soup, caesar salad, beef cheek and grilled sutchi fillet.
