The food in Cafe Cafe is also fantastic. There are a few value-for-money 3 courses set menu from RM69 to RM149. We ordered the RM109 set that came with escargot with foei gras and truffle as the appetizer, roasted wagyu cheek as main and tiramisu as dessert. We also ordered another a la carte appetizer Canadian scallop wt foei gras(~RM40) and a main course recommended by the head waiter – a duck confit(~RM45). The escargot with foei gras and truffle was an interesting mixture of 'the best of french cuisine'. However,I think the escargot was a bit bland and oily. While the other appetizer - Canadian scallop with generous portion of foei gras(3 big pieces!) was definitely a winner. Of the 2 mains we ordered, I really love the wagyu cheek. It was done perfectly and it's so soft it melts in your mouth. I was quite disappointed with the recommended duck confit. I think it was too salty to my taste and rather boring.
The dessert - Tiramisu, heavily soaked in Grand Marnier, was heavenly. I honestly vote it as the best Tiramisu in town. As Malaysia is a Muslim country, it is very difficult to find good quality Tiramisu with sufficient liquor in it. Now I'm very happy to find the perfect tiramisu in Malaysia.
I would definitely recommend this Parisian cafe, if you fancy a romantic dining experience with your loved one.
