Together with Sunny, Jennifer and myself, we headed to FLAVORS, Swiss-Garden Kuala Lumpur, a new restaurant situated in the heart of the city. It is a new restaurant located inside of the Swiss Garden Hotel, with a very trendy look, slick and modern setting, got to say it is very appealing to me, was attracted to the deco colours of this restaurant.
I love the simplicity of the table setting and coloured pillows were used. The wall was laminated with beautifully wood panel and the lightings really set the ambient of the restaurant.
As we sat down, we were served with this lovely bread, crusty on the outside so soft in the inside and what make it so tasty was the tasty texture of the bread itself, it tasted a bit similar to bagels. Well I ate two of this gorgeous bread for sure and used it to wipe clean most of the sauce left on my plates, I am sure you will know this is a piece of luxury to me!
First we had the Swiss-Garden's Caeser Salad which was very fresh and I adored the parmesan cheese basket which was very tasty and went very well with the salad. The caeser dressing was very well spot on, a very refreshing salad.
Then came our main course with a great surprise, and it was called The Neptune's Catch, a red snapper dish that came with a two combination of taste, tom yam and mixed herbs. I got to say this dish came with a surprise as it finished off with a perchik delight. Compliment to the chef for brilliantly stacking up the plate with the panfried fish fillets and potato wedges. I really love the way how the chef played with the ingredients and embedded the local taste and flavours, a true desire dish.
We got to say that that night we were lucky as we got to taste two additional dishes from the chef, the first one was De Chop, a New Zealand prime lamb chops deepfried with coated breadcrumbs, was well marinated and well presented, tastes good but was a bit dried.
Oh this snapper fillet paupiettes is lovely indeed. I came to realise that paupiette is a cooking process where by a thin sliced of fish is wrapped around a forcemeat, love creation. I really like this dish as the chef used white fish wrapped around the salmon so beautifully.
We ended the night with a chocolat dessert with fresh cut fruits.
I really like this place as I really enjoyed the dinner, a very pleasant restaurant, new, chick and gorgeous, definitely a place to dine and even for a quick business lunch . . . . Sidney
