Frangipani @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
May 4, 2010
Frangi is the first name that springs to mind whenever someone asks me what my favorite restaurant is. Every meal here is a pleasure, though prices can be prohibitive.
Skinless grilled duck slices with haricot bean mousse, maple cider honey & crisp grain cones in garlic emulsion. A protein-packed recipe; probably the outlet's healthiest offering, considering it doesn't serve any substantial salads.
Wagyu beef cheeks with braised red cabbage, mole sauce & pumpkin dauphines. Sumptuously succulent, reminding us how sublime beef can be in the right hands.
French toast with rum raisin sauce & baked apples. Unforgettable decadence; the toast is dense yet astonishingly soft, drenched in the sweetest of nectars.
Dark Valrhona chocolate ganache with creme chantilly, candied hazelnuts, toasted almonds & French meringue. Their signature dessert; tastes as delightful as it looks.
Iced green apple souffle with cinnamon crumbs & tarte tatin. Refreshingly chilly.
Pistachio & white chocolate cheesecake with Irish tea sauce, toasted pine nuts pistachio cream-filled Russian cigarette. Not an average dried-out cheesecake. Moist and milky enough to make each bite a melt-in-the-mouth treat.
