Lafite @ Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur

September 25, 2009

The complimentary bread here is OK, but the soft, silky butter deserves all the glory.

Tower of Sweet Corn Soup (corn soup, crab, scallion puree, popcorn).

Pour the warm, thick, comfortingly creamy soup into the bowl...

Voila! Something to give the tastebuds a rest from canned soup.

Foie Gras Volume 3 (roasted foie gras, savoury spiced bun, apricot puree, hibiscus meringue and pistachio). The foie gras was perfectly prepared; the hibiscus meringue wowed us with it fascinatingly flowery flavour.

58 Degrees Celsius Beef Short Rib (48-hours slow-cooked beef, creamy potato, black truffle puree and aromatic braising jus). Marvelously succulent.

Snickers +/- (warm chocolate mousse, roasted peanut ice cream, caramel, crispy nougatine). The ultimate comfort food.

Dark, white and milk chocolate puzzle pieces. A complimentary afterthought.

Rasteau M Chapoutier 2005. Cheapest wine in the house, but we liked it.

Shangri-La Hotel.
