Pork-free, serves alcohol


This post is based on Spring/Summer 2020 Degustation Menu by Cantaloupe.


We ordered two 6-courses with different appetisers, mains & desserts to try everything on the menu.


Food:

At this price point, this was a pretty decent fine-dining experience. Other than the Amuse Bouche and the first course, I actually enjoyed everything else!


1. The Amuse Bouche was too heavy (creamy) for a start. No to the beef tongue.


Tomato Focaccia tasted weird and didn’t like the texture of the soggy bread.


2. Sardines were surprisingly good (not fishy!). The cherries added a touch of sweetness.


3. Not usually a salad person but I loved the Spring Salad. Creamy Confit Tuna topped on crunchy crouton felt like a nice snack.


4. Tiger Prawns tasted really sweet and juicy with the blackcurrent compote. Foie Gras Toast was slightly bland.


5. Halibut was moist and well-seasoned with curry powder and rosemary.


6. Lamb Loin Sausage was my favourite course. Tasted great with the harissa mousse and broth. But portion was quite small as a main.


7. Black Angus Tenderloin was medium rare and well-seasoned but I didn’t like the black olive powder (thank god it was on the side). The Potato Pave was damn good!


8. Combination of White & Dark Chocolate, Berries & Biscuit. Sounded complicated but it had a balance of chocolatey and fruity flavours with a crunch!


9. The caramelised Persimmon was hidden underneath the pastry (this was quite sweet) but tasted great with the green tea ice-cream and shaved white chocolate truffle. Really satisfying way to end the meal.


Service:

Waiters were nice and very attentive.


Ambience:

Overlooking KL Tower & Twin Towers. Modern interior, indoor and outdoor seatings available. Comes with private room.

Heard of this place for a long time but never tried it (I usually go to Fuego instead). Glad that I gave it a shot!
