Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
August 17, 2006
We skipped the appetizers and went straight for the mains. However, we heard good reviews of the mushroom soup and escargots. One thing to comment is the complimentary focaccia bread was very good and the 'special' home-made butter with a hint of mint was absolutely fantastic!
We ordered the stuffed trout Johann Strauss(~RM45). It comes as a whole fish, so it's not recommended for those who are not used to western food that comes with the animal head and tail. The stuffed trout was baked with mushroom, salmon, and spinach as the stuffing, and top with an unbelievably fragrant light dill cream sauce. Do be careful with the bones as the trout was not de-boned and still there's still a slight hint of fishiness. However, the cream sauce was so good it managed to cover the fishiness of the trout.
Another main that we ordered was venison pot roast with juniper-berry and mushroom sauce(rm48). This dish comes with cabbaged in red wine and a very delicious fried bread pudding. We both enjoyed this dish very much.
We ended our sumptuous meal with 2 desserts: the house speciality strudel(RM15) with vanilla ice-cream and the 'black man in white shirt'(RM16) which is really a brownie covered in sinfully rich chocolate sauce and cream. Both are yummy and value-for-money.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant for the incredibly fine food and great ambience.
