The 22nd of October... the day you came screaming and kicking into the world... you haven't stopped talking since:P
I make you a card.. because I am creative (and too lazy to buy one from the shop)!
You read the card and smile.. (OK la, I'm no poet but you get the gist of it.. lol)
We read about this place from Lemongrass and since we have always liked Cilantro (driving past micasa a few weeks ago, the whole place is still closed for renovations), we decided we just could not pass up a chance at trying Chef Kimura's cooking!
We opted for the Sage-Set because it was much more worth it than going ala-carte.
We start to eat.
You find the 'Extra Large Scallop with Slow Roasted Beet root and Kabu' appetizer a little over-cooked.. I find my 'Feuillete of Anago with Foie Gras and Artichoke Puree' starter delicious..
Both Appetizers are priced at RM58 nett each.
For mains I order the 'Rump Steak with Carrot Puree and Anchovy Sauce' and you have the 'Roasted Lamb Rack with Merguese and Piment'. The steak was excellent - the nice and unusual thing about this steak is that they serve you two types of beef. One is the actual steak medallions, medium rare and the second is the braised ox shank with the carrot puree. Excellent texture and taste. The lamb was gamy and a little on the fatty side. You noticed that you were served only ONE piece of a tiny lamb rack, and 1/4 of it was fat! Luckily my portion was huge, so you helped me with my steak.
Both Main Courses are priced at RM78 nett each.
You, sharing your lamb with me, what little you had.. aww... so sweet...
We eat, chat, linger, snap photos, laugh and eat some more.
After about an hour ,we are done.
For dessert, you have the 'Almond Blanc Manger with Mango Sorbet and Passion Fruit' and I have the 'Calvados Flambe of Apple with Almond Crumble and Vanilla ice-cream'.
Both were equally good but the Almond Manger stole the show. According to you, this was one of the best desserts you have tried in a while. The texture of the Manger was silky smooth and superbly creamy. This richness was nicely tempered with the tangy sourish sorbet and passion fruit.
Both desserts are priced at RM30 nett each.
We finish our food and take a breather. Out of the corner of your eye, you see the waiter walking over. You look quizzically at me. I grin back.
Haha... SURPRISE! Make a wish!
We eat the complimentary cake courtesy of Chef Takashi Kimura and call it a night..
Of course, the other birthday present is all wrapped up waiting at home for you, but you don't know that just yet;)
