After about 4 years, we returned again as suggested by the good friend. We didn't mind since the roads were practically empty due to the long public holiday. When we walked into Castell, things were slightly different. Castell refurbished indicating a new management. Then to the first floor passing by the bar to sit at the balcony facing the main road.
To start off, fresh oysters and a basket of bread. Bread definitely not my game and this "nothing to say" bread paired with olive oil in balsamic vinegar and a little fried garlic atop, finished off by half-half and the friend. The oysters of course-of course, fresh-fresh and yum when dashed with Tabasco sauce or lemon juice.
My other half however happily tucked into the lamb shank - a generous portion with mashed potatoes in a thick flavourful gravy and bits of carrots. He surely polished up and grinned.
Mine was the mixed platter - grilled chicken, prawns and sausage, paired with salad, baked potato and corn. The chicken was a disaster as the meat was still raw as I sliced in, thus I pushed it aside. The accompaniments I eat but I wouldn't clap.
Dinner (RM357.00) at Castell had its flaws but the relaxed night with food and the friend we appreciated.
