Kara - Latin for 'beloved' - is the Klang Valley's latest French restaurant, with a reasonably extensive repertoire. Lovers of liver will likely choose the pan-fried duck liver on russet potatoes with green grapes for a warm starter (RM56) or the chicken liver pate with sliced baguettes and assorted greens for a chilled appetiser (RM24). Both illustrate the kitchen's style of inserting its twist on these staples, surrounding them with a bounty of fruits and vegetables for a buoyant, balanced platter.
Kara promises plenty of combinations for a confidently French meal - perhaps the snails in garlic herb butter, sandwiched in choux pastry for a distinctive take on escargots a la bourguignonne (RM32), followed by a mighty, meaty main of lamb rack encrusted in Provencal herbs with ratatouille (RM60), with classic standards like Stardust and Desafinado wafting from the speakers.
All in all, Kara is scarcely a fortnight old, so it should be worth watching where the restaurant evolves from here. An interesting addition to Kota Damansara's dining landscape, the venue is expected to also transform within the months ahead into an after-hours bar where patrons can relax to cocktails and cool tunes following their dinner.
Thanks to Kara for having us here.
