Last weekend, had a great dining experience that do not cost me a bomb for a lunch menu is at Cassis Restaurant at TTDI, KL. It is one of a fine dining restaurant in KL as they are offering French and Japanese inspired dish. 4 course lunch at RM 180, I find that it is decently priced and for the quality of food and food journey experience is just right.
Cassis Restaurant is not prominent on the main road as they sit just right 1 shop away from LUT, TTDI. Look for a bright yellow lights that lead you up to level 1.
Upon door opening, you will be greeted with soothing French background music, follow by greetings with a friendly staff at the door that will then bring to your seat, if you made a reservation.
Love the interior as deck with classic marble flooring with fresh pot of flowers on every table that gives a nice floral scent.
For the 4 course lunch menu, we kick off with Bread Basket that serve with a few homemade butter.
Chicken Croquette with Black Truffle Baked
Confit Octopus with Extra Virgin Olive Condiements were perfect and packed with flavours. I love the middle is with a bit of alcohol jelly and a pate. It is so good that
Cheese is done to perfection that it is serve in a medium hard texture. It is for sharing and I find that having half is just perfect. For the Salmon, I find it goes along every well with the biscuit inside bread basket.
For soup, you can pick :
Smoked Clam Chowder
corn, garlic crouton, parsley
Little did I know, I order my first dish wrongly as I wanted the puff soup but accidentally order with Smoked Clam Chowder.
Another which I find it excited is Foie gras (top up RM 60) but turns out not to be a soup. It is a side. Perfectly pan seared foie gras that is crips on the skin layer and melt in your mouth inside base is just perfect. with its dressings on top just add on the flavours it needed.
Opted for Aged MB5 Australia Black Angus Sirloin baby spinach, mushroom, beef jus. I requested medium rare and it is cook to the way I wanted. seared on the outside with a nice little umami taste I like and the jus might be too strong. I prefer to have it by itself is already kinda perfect. I order their Italian red house wine to go with it. I believe its a Shiraz and its goes well with its after taste. a mxiture of shiraz spicy note and jus which is slight bitter and meat seared taste is perfect combo.
you can choose to upgrade : Miyazaki A5 Sirloin (supplement RM180)
Another main that happy over it is Maine Lobster & Scallop perfectly cooked with the taste sweetness of lobster is still prominent. Scallop is nicely done too. Ordered their house wine Italian White which have a bit of sweet floral note to match the seafood that I have. Liking it.
Before dessert, we are given a choice of Coffee or Tea. Rarely I choose for tea this round is because of the brand. I choose fruit tea because I saw the dessert list that i will be having and I believe will match to my personal taste bud.
When the dessert it serve, I am totally happy over it, with variety explosion of taste. Starting off with:
Varlhorna Chocolate Truffle
Chocolate ‘n’ Peanut Butter Eclair
Earl Grey Jelly with Vanilla Cream
Shine Muscat Tart
Was told by the server that we should start from left to right from the wood platform and end with the chocolate.
It is indeed a pretty satisfying desert ending with variety of flavours to hit on. From mixture of sour, salty and clear earl grey jelly with umami chococlate. Just perfecto!
Whenever I travel, at times I will opt for fine dine or good food. For our local and RM 180 for such great food journey, I find that this is certainly one of a recommended menu to all of you. I am satisfied and happy over it. Maybe could be one of a fine dining restaurant in PJ you could consider?
