Chez Leoniel @ Alliance Francaise
April 5, 2016
Chef Leoniel Dg's eponymous cafe at the Alliance Francaise de Kuala Lumpur language & cultural centre offers a deep dive into a sea of French fare - expect everything from steak tartare to salade lyonnaise, moules marinieres to boeuf bourguignon, hachis parmentier to gratin dauphinois to quiche lorraine,
We tried two sturgeon dishes, one with the fish served as a tartare (RM25) & the other pan-seared & partnered with vegetables, mushrooms & garlic cream sauce (RM45), as well as a ginger-spiced pumpkin soup (RM9) & grilled duck confit with roast potatoes (RM38). Chez Leoniel has clearly put work into creating a tempting menu, though the final results could have been more effective in terms of freshness of produce & choices made in the preparation, balance of flavours & execution of textures. But it's still a pleasant place if you're seeking somewhere to eat away from the malls & commercial enclaves.
Alliance Francaise, 15 Lorong Gurney, Kuala Lumpur. Generally open Tues-Sun, 10am-830pm but call 019-723-2112 to check
