Our favourite dish at Kecur has to be the Laksa Johor, which was tasty and full of mackerel flavour. We also enjoyed the kueh-mueh.
Our favourite though from the “Smaller” section was the Cold Capellini (RM88) – thin Italian pasta served with amaebi (prawn sashimi), Hokkaido scallops and ikura (salmon roe).
Grilled Lamb Rack was an idea from Gabriel Thang where you get New Zealand grass-fed lamb rack chops crusted with herbs, served with mushroom sauce, homemade yogurt mint sauce, white truffle potato mash and sautéed vegetables (RM59). Loved the mash as it was creamy and rich. The lamb was nicely still pink, moist and tender, with the yogurt mint sauce giving a different spin to the usual mint sauce.
Hidden away above a mini market, Cotta KL is like a speakeasy bar but with ricotta cheese on the menu. The 3 key staples here are the Classic Ricotta Toast (RM18), Smoked Salmon Ricotta Toast (RM26) and Chuck Mooris (RM25).
Chef Andy Choy (Chateau Dionne) said the theme for The CKT Supper club this month was ‘Italy’ and not Italian, otherwise we would be better off at a true blue Italian resto. He’s being honest, and frankly, it did feel more like Malaysian fusion with the teeny bits of Italian accents, what with Wagyu with rendang sauce, and roti tissue inspired paper thin bread with Western ‘dhall’ made with split peas instead of chuck peas, and all.
What do we like about Frangipaani KL? -The pani puri – great first experience of trying -The ambience and attentive service
The theme will be Italian next March with Andy in a collaboration with chef Kenny on March 27th . You can find out then what CKT really stands for then! Held at Chateau Dionne and priced at RM280, seats are very limited so book early!
Tonight's 5-course wine dégustation menu is priced at RM330.00++ per person. Considering Soleil's refined ambience and impeccable table service, the price is very affordable to people who appreciate fine wines. In fact, Soleil aims to make quality wines more accessible to the average customer.
All in all, their forte is still very well and deliciously maintained; love all the pastries as usual, yumz!!
Chargrilled chicken, marinated chicken breast with spice and herbs wrapped in toasted tortilla. Scrambled egg on toasted brioche with side salads. Food is alright.
