Tug in a very hidden corner inside of Sapura Kencana Petroleum building in the area of Publika, you will find this little fine dine restaurant, Millesime. I have heard friends mention about this restaurant last year, as they serve excellent food that is a little pricey but worth the spending.

Update 1/1/2017]: NO Longer in Operation

I do believe some of you are like me, eat till do not know what to eat for the day or next meal. One special style about this restaurant is that they do not have a proper menu for you to choose from, mostly will be the best set of the day as both of the chef uses or sources best ingredient of the day then come out with the menu in the morning itself. Therefore, if you dine daily here, you will have different types of food being serve.

Or if you feel being adventurous, just sit down and let the chef enlighten you with their specialty.

As we were seated, we are serve along with toast of the day that made fresh daily and serve along with seaweed butter, that is one of the chef signature.

millesme (11)

When the manager put this few slices of bread on the table, it smells so good that we have to get a slice of it. Love grew towards the bread when we spread the seaweed butter along. Strong taste of seaweed with mild butter end, as eat more and we tend to spread the butter ticker till we ask for another round of butter, till Ken and me just cut half of the butter slice, and just eat it.

millesme (12)

After stuff myself for 5 slices of bread, next serve along is Amuse Bouche serve with a cut of shitake mushroom wrap with a slice of slice of smoked duck is bursting with flavour in my mouth follow by and  mashed roasted aubergines got top with feta cheese.

Some of them commented, this is one of a beautiful presented dish that its so hard for them to start eating is Gravlax of Snapper and Salmon with Mizuno Leaves and Shaddock Nuggets @ RM32. Hard work had been putting in to prepare thsi dish, as been marinated with sugar, salt, lemon rind and dill for 4 days.  Then little round of salmon are place on the side, then shower with a golden-hued tangy citrus vinaigrette, Manukka honey and mustard.

This is no ordinary tomato soup, as Smoked Herring and Oregano Oil are poured into Rustic Tomato Soup.

millesme (15)

Soup is creamy and slightly thick, as smoked carrots and leek were blend along. The taste is perfect when mixed with the smoked herring as it add the kick onto the taste. . I am definitely recommending this soup, as its unique in its kind.  @ RM23

millesme (16)

Squid Ink Linguine with Calamari, Chilli and Pesto in Olio @ RM45

millesme (17)

As the pasta is cook slightly moist, and with the perfection of al dante in spaghetti . Squid were fresh as its chewy, cook along with cherry tomato.

Before our mains, we next have our Palate CleanserStrawberry Sherbet

millesme (19)

This dish will definitely be top in my list as Slow Braised Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Polenta and Mushroom Ragout @ RM58  by the side.  Chef Patrick explained that the short ribs been braised for 6 hours with red wine and the taste of the sauce is extremely good, aromatic and strong in taste that the wagyu beef need not knife to cut it, a gentle touch is good enough to separate it. I enjoy every bite of it by slowly munching.

Comes to dessert – Valrhona Dark Chocolate Souffle served with vanilla ice-cream.

First time stepping foot into Mandarin Grill is certainly another new level of experience for me, as always the main entrance projects me the impression that they are serving buffet line, neither did I know its actually a contemporary restaurant. Not only that, with chances of being here along with few others are totally slim. Mandarin Oriental is known for its award winning owner and operator, therefore Mandarin Grill is something I am looking up at.

Many of foodies like us we surely heard about Michelin star restaurant, which is a fine dine exclusive restaurant that maintain its quality all year long. There are none in Malaysia. Guess what, now Mandarin Grill is getting an exclusive chef with experience in cooking 2-Michelin star restaurant is the new chef heading the kitchen as Chef de Cuisine is Chef Reto Weber.

I look down on this slab of meat that I thought I would not be filled and it proves me wrong. Braised to perfection that the meat is soft, tender and moist. I pair it with potato purree and it taste awesome along with a sip of wine. Something that you must not miss if you are here, some people do not prefer it and if you are a fan of Angus steak then should give it a try.

Many of other diners are aiming for this desert, as those are some regular in here and its a must have according to them. Granny Smith Apple Tart Creme France Ice Cream. It was cook to precision that the crust is slight crispy and apple is very flavourful and you must eat along with ice cream to make it more perfect, yet to me its still too sweet as I myself cant take too sweet item. The rest are just enjoy to the max with this desert.
