Soleil @ PJ Section 17
September 7, 2013
Soleil: Round Three. Earlier entries: August 6 & August 23.
Spring rolls, blessed with the best crispy-thin skin, stuffed with succulent braised duck leg & portobello mushroom (RM36++. Flog no dead horses; its established that Soleils expensive).
Veal sweetbread (RM88++), a kings ransom of a chunky serving, with fragrantly truffle-tinged tagliatelle, red wine sauce & sauteed spinach.
Cheese platter (RM41++), with supple-soft-stinky French varieties to swoon over.
Really love the pungent Livarot cows-milk cheese (some will loathe its barnyard odor); also like the Saint-Nectaire with its rough rind & Fourme dAmbert & Selles-sur-Cher goats-milk cheese.
Chocolate lovers, rejoice: Soleils triumvirate of dark choc mousse, Ghana choc parfait & financier (served with passion fruit, RM26++) is thoroughly triumphant.
New style choc-cherry Black Forest, made complex with lime, yogurt & blackberry sorbet. A busy, fussy-looking plate, but fun to eat through.
Hot peppermint tea, a refreshing accompaniment to the rich desserts.
Soleil serves its own East-West signature cocktails, such as the Soleil Delight (white rum, mint, pineapple, calamansi, simple syrup, ginger, cardamom, potently pleasurable for only RM24++) & Majestic Beach (tequila, grand marnier, orange, lime, ginger, Thai basil).
A Martini of vodka, peach schnapps & lemongrass, alongside a classic Planters Punch.
White Russian & Brandy Alexander; couldnt ask for better nightcaps.
