This post is based on #Option3 menu served during CMCO. Ember changes menu every week so expect different courses on your visit.


Food:

One of the most affordable fine-casual dining’s I’ve had. ONLY RM120 per pax for 5-courses + 2 amuse bouche!


1. Dry aged duck breast was tender, but I wish there was slightly more crisp on the skin. This was 50/50. Nothing wrong with it, just thought it could be better. But for RM120, this was good enough. Wasn’t really a fan of the charred cabbage tho.


2. Love the Ceviche! At first I thought it was Kampachi, until I checked the menu and noticed it was Pomfret.


3. Mushroom Capellini had great flavour & love the various textures from the mushrooms.


4. Beef Tartar had lots of umami but was missing a touch of salt. Still damn good tho!


5. Chrysanthemum Ice Cream was interesting, but the dehydrated cherry kept getting stuck in my teeth 🤣


6&7. Both Amuse Bouche had lots of herbs and interesting flavours.


Service:

100% payment was collected upfront. They are very particular with the dinner timing as they serve everyone at the same time. Introduction of the courses were given.


Ambience:

Nothing fancy, open kitchen concept.
