Maison Francaise

IMG_2679Any dinner setting with sparkling water on the table is a sign of pure indulgence that is awaiting. Again, while still on a lookout for a perfect eventful dinner in KL, we came across Maison Francaise. A very posh restaurant that used to be a home! It is a spanking villa lookalike with a terrace spotting the sights of the city’s iconic twin towers, no less.IMG_2680IMG_2681IMG_2695For starters, we had an amuse-bouche;IMG_2689A little thin wafer crisp bread, smoked salmon and cream, half a tomato and garnish. Tasted like no other.

Followed by the lobster bisque;IMG_2690Forgive the tad-too-much orange tinge, but the intimate light setting could only produce these shots. This soup is magic. It’s very light and titillating to say the least. And when you bite into the first piece of the succulent lobster, you won’t know what hit you! We loved it!

Now, on to the main courses, the Monsieur and I opted for seafood. Les poissons;IMG_2697┬áSeabass on a bed of tomato sauce perfumed with orange. Can you imagine the work that goes into that? And the fillet is grilled ever so perfectly. Crisp on the outside, tender and fragrant on the inside. Ahhh…the joys of eating ;) Ok I’ve realised that I actually do not have a picture of the Monsieur’s dish. I was totally occupied with eating mine.

Last but not least, desssert! This part of the meal is usually optional for me as I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but since we dancing to the tune of french cuisine, it seems abit of a misgiving if I missed a step. So here goes;IMG_2701IMG_2698Piece of art? Perhaps. Explosion on the tongue? Very much so. I don’t know what is it about French cuisine that makes explosion on the tongue sounds overrated. To be honest, I get irritated too sometimes when I hear this phrase but I have to tell you, it is true. It’s like you are forcing your tongue up and working all its tastebuds in one spoonful. It is so hard to describe as you take in the taste of each ingredient being carefully prepared and infused into the dish. I’ve never liked the marriage of chocolate and pistachio ice cream so much!

Hats off to the Executive Chef, Thierry Le Baut who is kind enough to take some time to speak with us and even presented Little Man with his very own chef hat;IMG_2706IMG_2703

Maison Francaise is located at No. 5 Changkat Kia Peng 50450, Kuala Lumpur. You can find their website here. I can promise you a delightful dinner, hosted with charm and genuine smiles by their amicable chef and his staff.

Hello and welcome to my blog! I was a teacher who was rather set in her ways. In 2009, I met and married a French man who has since made my world spin in another direction. Now, I am still a teacher who is learning every single day, wife to a funny man, mother to a sweet little boy and apparently a writer too! I have always wanted to write so I guess this blog is my big chance. I hope you enjoy my posts :)
