The scene of dining in KL is getting more interesting. From scent experiancial to story telling. Currently running is the The World’s Smallest Chef KL known as Le Petit Chef, In The Footsteps of Marco Polo happening in Elements, TREC KL.

A 5 course dinner that brings you to different country. Quite a great story telling and journey though.

Le Petit Chef (1)

ambiance is pretty nice as can be set up according to the number of pax have made during reservation. For night session on weekend, they have 2 session in total. They start on the dot and I mean on the dot. If it is 7pm means 7pm start. The most also delay 5minutes as they need to cater for another session after that.

So do take note that on weekdays with traffic jam, do really plan your time accordingly.

This is a very unique Korean salad as I consider this is another substitute for Kimchi. Quite similiar as they are using chives as replacement and top with egg yolk to give it a slightly creamy texture.

First is by  unique four-course dinner and cocktail pairing experience that truly elevated the Hennessy V.S.O.P drinking experience. The menu and specially-crafted cocktails were conceptualized by the team at Hacha Mecha and IKKI Bar. The unique menu paired Japanese flavours with the sweet, fruity notes of the Hennessy V.S.O.P through a selection of various classic cocktail adaptations.

Our dinner kick start with:

Yakitori Tasting Platter – (Chicken Tsukene, Chicken Thigh & Leek, and Mozzarella Balls)

Paired with Horse’s Neck – (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Ginger Ale, Angostura Bitters and Lemon Wedges)

Hennessy (15)

Wagyu / Chicken Karage Sliders

Paired with Side Car – (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Triple Sec and Lemon Juice).I was joking on the name of this drink where side car will make you side car if you drink more (side car translate to cantonese). So for this drink, do handle with care.

Hennessy (16)

During our dinner, we were distract with great voice from Talitha Tan, one of the newest songstresses in the Malaysian scene, for which she played a variation of both original songs and unique covers of the current popular hits.

Hennessy (17)

Char Grilled Miso Salmon/ Truffled Wagyu Donburi 

Paired with Mint Julep (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Angostura Bitters, Mint Leaves). I have tried a few mint jelup and I think this is one of a better mint jelup so far with Hennessy as one of the base.

Final dish is one of the best dish by far as it is totally a fantastic dish with alot of confusion created in your mind. our dessert is Cold Tuna Sashimi. In love with its creativy and techinque for this where tuna sashimi is actually made from compress watermelon and finely slice to look it like a nice cut of sashimi, along with wasabi infuse ice cream to make your experience that you are eating a fresh tuna sashimi that gives you a chill sensation to your taste bud.  Fine crust biscuit is to add in a great crunchy bite along with ginger slices that makes it a well balance dessert dish. It is a cleverly presented dish.

Hennessy (20)

If this Cold Tuna Sashimi is in their dessert menu, do give it a try.

Hennessy (21)

After the meal, we head to our second session, that is held just right upstairs at Hacha Mecha, is IKKI for specially-crafted cocktails by Lead Bartender, Mr Osmund Bernard. The cocktail session entailed a special masterclass session with Osmund himself who took guests through the inspiration and procedure behind each unique cocktail.

Hennessy (23)

This French Summer cocktail was available for that night only and featured a refreshing take on the Hennessy V.S.O.P flavours, giving guests a taste of summer in France as a tribute to the heritage of the Hennessy brand, is one on of womens favourite. Clever mix from Osmund created the creamy foam that makes the drink so smooth where thyme is added along. I then pluck the leaves and stir it along and it sure do enhance the taste of the drink to be more fragrant.
