Guests of the E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur are spoiled for choice when it comes to satisying their culinary expectations. Several restaurants and bars at sited at St. Mary’s Place itself including Delicious, a casual dining haven exuding laidback, breezy vibes. 
Daily breakfast for E&O Residences KL guests are catered by the Delicious team but for a better grasp of what the resto can deliver, it’s better to pop in for lunch or dinner.

We did just that during our recent staycation, nabbing the banquette seats set against an Instagram-worthy feature wall. Cafe Manager Siow Kok Leong recommended some of the house thirst-quenchers and Deep-fried Salted Egg Fish Skin (RM17) for openers. Coated in creamy salted egg sauce and tufted with chicken floss, the crunchy bites amped up our anticipation for a Saturyay lunch to remember.
Not sure if it was our valiant attempt at healthy eating or was it the appeal of the dish’s simple, back-to-basics approach but the day's crowd-pleaser was the downhome Roasted Pumpkin Salad (RM25).

We love the pops of tanginess from the boba-like balsamic vinegar ‘caviar’ juxtaposed against the pumpkin’s delicate sweetness; imbuing bright, tantalising flavours to the melange of fresh baby spinach, arugula, toasted pine nuts, feta cubes, croutons and tomato strips.

According to Siow, the Nasi Kerabu with Ayam Percik (RM33) is a firm crowd fave with Delicious' patrons. Tinged blue with the juice of butterfly pea flower, the rice came surrounded by a whole grilled chicken drumstick smothered in a piquantly spicy sauce, a heap of chopped ulam (raw local herbs), fried keropok (crackers), half a salted egg and side dips of sambal belacan and budu (fermented fish sauce).

When the different components are mixed and eaten together, you'd find hot and zippy accents mingling cohesively with savoury and briny nuances amidst soft, crunchy, crispy and tender texures. What’s not to like?
The other sought-after local dish, Mee Goreng Mamak (RM28) also came up to scratch. Relying on its own tried-and-tested formula, Delicious augmented the spiced noodles with chicken, squid, tiger prawns, beancurd, tomatoes and cucur (fried fritters), to ensure hearty satisfaction.

Partial to more Western-oriented fare? We’d recommend Chicken Chop (RM28) – the slab of battered fried chicken fillet with tangy sauce, garden veges and fries got the stamp of approval from the Hainanese in our dining party.
Personally, I’m partial to the simpler, healthier Baked Salmon (RM38). The pared-down approach of pairing citrus and grapefruit segments with grapefruit reduction worked like a charm with the rich taste of the Norwegian salmon fillet.

A familiar fave to bank on is the Classic Cheeseburger (RM35). The scrumptious secret lies in the seared, juicy US Black Angus 80% meat and 20% fat ratio beef patty. Sandwiched between a sesame seed bun with cheddar cheese, sliced tomato, lettuce, onion, pickles and a special house sauce, the burger proved on-point.
Sweet indulgent treats such as Pavlova (RM18), Onde Onde Cake (RM15) and Brownie with Ice Cream (RM18) should please dessert fans. They passed muster although I found the slice of cake underwhelming.

Far from the madding crowd. Tucked away behind the Weld on the site of the former St Mary’s school, the E&O Residences is a serene haven where 200 units of luxurious one and two-bedroom suites beckon for a nice staycation in the city.

Wake up to an unobstructed view of the KL Tower. Or revel in the overhead view of an outdoor swimming pool surrouded by verdant landscape and lush foliage. That’s the advantage of staying at the E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur, managed by Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O). Across the courtyard is the St Mary Residences.
After a warm welcome at the plush Reception, we explored every inch of our 1,442 ft² two-bedroom apartment. Tastefully furnished, the spacious living area consists of a well-equipped kitchen and a compact dining area. Our balcony looks out to the KL Tower and nearby skyscrapers.
It’s easy to feel at home here as both bedrooms are comfortably furnished with quality linen. Our master bedroom boasts built-in wardrobe with a safe box, an ensuite bathroom with a standalone bath tub, a vanity area, separate shower and toilet, and luxe amenities.
The second bedroom is similarly furnished except there’s no tub in the bathroom. At 1,131 ft², the one bedroom suite is just as nice and comfy. Catching forty winks during the two nights' escapade were a breeze as the cushy beds ensured we slept fitfully like babies.
Depending on your needs, both types of suites can be home away from home for corproate relocations, business and leisure travellers, long-stay medical tourists thanks to the secured privacy and comprehensive range of creature comforts provided. 
We managed to work productively in the dining area thanks to the broadband WiFi access while my girl completed her assignments in the study room furnished with an executive desk. Later, we kicked back, lounging around the sleek sectional sofa and channel-surfed, making full use of the home entertainment system. Music streaming is made possible with the iPod docking station provided.
Feeling a little peckish, we then rustled up some light refreshments in the kitchen which comes equipped with a microwave oven, a toaster, cutlery and crockery. Besides a kettle for making hot drinks, there’s a fridge as well. We were told rice cooker and blender are available upon request. Longer staying guests will find the washing machine and dryer a boon. An iron, ironing board, and hairdryer are also provided in each suite.
Peace of mind is ensured once we headed to the serene oasis where the outdoor infinity pool is located. Flanked on all sides by rows of ornamental palm trees and manicured hedges in a landscaped garden courtyard, the pool offers a beguiling view of imposing buildings too.
Steps away are several private gazebos where the jacuzzi pool is, with sauna and steam rooms nearby. Fitness buffs will find the fully furnished gym with aerobics and yoga room adequate for their needs. Families with children in tow can make a beeline for the kids’ playground and play room, to allow their young ones free reign to unleash pent-up energy.  
Checking in to the E&O Residences is a seamless affair based on our first-hand experience. There’s welcome drinks laid out and steps away is a business centre where guests can acess the internet or do some document printing should the need arises. In addition, a multi-purpose function room can be rented for small-scale, customised meetings and events.
Security is provided around the clock. Also entry and exits to the residential suites are strictly through access cards provided. Ditto for car-park access, ensuring a seamless stay experience throughout.
Within walking distance from the E&O Residences are convenient stores, shopping malls, commercial offices, banks, selected tourist attractions and the city’s integrated monorail and LRT lines.
Guests who have breakfast included in their stay package can make their way to  Delicious, an independent restaurant. Served at from 7 am to 10 am daily, the buffet spread is ample enough. From nasi lemak and fried noodles to eggs cooked on request and baked items, the selection should leave you spoiled for choice. (Full review on Delicious coming soon)
Other restaurants in the same block include Glass Tartines & Tipples, Black Market pub and Sushi Hinata. A spa and beauty salon upstairs provide essential services for those who desire some self-pampering.
