Maison Francaise @ Jalan Kia Peng, KL (new menu)

    French food is known globally for its finesse and flavour. One does not have to travel far just to just to sample the best of French cuisine. Maison Francaise is a truly French restaurant in KL where you can enjoy exquisite French cuisine in comfortable surroundings and a relaxed atmosphere.

    Its food menu has tempting innovative dishes as well exciting classic dishes with a modern twist, while the wine list has an extensive range of French wines. Chef Thierry from Maison Francaise uses only the finest, freshest ingredients and sources as much local produce as possible to create seasonal dishes that are all freshly prepared in his kitchen.
    Amuse bouche – salmon tartare, profiterole of cheese gougeres and goat’s cheese nougat.

    We sampled 3 types of cold appetisers:
    Crepes vonnasienne au saumon fume, creme aux citron confits/Homemade smoked salmon on a Vonnasienne crepe with confitated lemon cream, RM 70

    Good smoked salmon should taste not just of the cure and the smoke, but of the salmon itself, and this does. I shall proclaim that MF does the best smoked salmon in town.

    Terrine de Foie Gras au porto/Foie gras terrine flavoured with port wine, RM98

    The foie gras terrine has a creamy texture that melts in your mouth with delicious and robust foie gras flavor. I can never have enough of that terrine together with some toasted brioche slices.

    Carpaccio de poulpe, gel de yuzu/Octopus carpaccio with yuzu gel, RM75

    Octopus carpaccio is an exquisite dish, tender and tasty.

    We also tried 5 types of warm appetisers:

    Coquilles Saint Jacques poellees, puree d’artichaud a l’huile de truffes/Pan seared scallops with truffle flavoured artichoke, RM72

    Sweet, tender, mild, and delectable—the less you fuss with scallops, the better they taste. I love this simple dish so much but I wish I can have double portions!

    Le bisque de homard, saute de homard confit au beurre Breton/Lobster Bisque with sauteed lobster in Brittany butter, RM65

    Lobster bisque is an elegant soup known for its rich flavor and crimson colour, and MF’s version is extra luscious with sauteed lobster and my favourite Britanny butter! Do enjoy the explosion of flavours in your mouth and thank me later.
    Escalopes de foie gras poellees aus raisins, Seared foie gras with grape sauce, RM 125

    Chef Thierry’s pan seared foie gras is rich and creamy with runny fatty goodness yet not too heavy. The sweetness of grape sauce balances the rich and creamy foie gras perfectly.
    Aile de raie pochee, puree de pommes de terre, buerre noir aux capres/Poached sting ray, potato puree and black butter with capers, RM 120

    Who would have thought that our local ikan pari would make it into a French restaurant? Thanks to Chef Thierry’s creativity, the stringray regained it’s fame as a great local delicary. The texture is so tender and perfect after long hours of poaching, and it goes really well with the pure potato puree and capers.
    Le poulpe grille, croustillant de pomme de terre epicee frite, saute de pak choy/Grilled octopus, crunchy spicy potato & saute pak choy, RM 115

    The gorgeous Galician Octopus is amiably smoky and tender. The crunchy spicy potato is a pleasant surprise – don’t worry it’s not burnt, instead it tastes like a piece of heaven.

    For mains, we had:
    Filet de lotte rotie a l’ail, fenouil et echalottes, sauce aux crevettes/Roasted monkfish with garlic, fennel and shallot with prawn sauce, RM148

    In this dish, the delicate flavour of monkfish is wonderfully spiced with garlic, fennel and shallot. Love the briny and flavourful prawn sauce too!
    Magret de canard legerement fume puis roti, lentilles de puy etuvees, jus de canard/Roasted Smoked Duck Magret, lentils from Puy and duck sauce, RM135

    Sometimes called “duck steak,” the magret (breast) of the Moulard duck is known for its rich flavor and dark red meat. The duck had a subtly sweet flavor and a meaty richness, just like a steak. So good!
    Filet d’agneau roti, pure de pomme de terre, sauce grand veneur/Roasted Lamb Rack, sweet and Normal potato puree, grand veneur sauce, RM 135

    They were a a perfect medium rare and practically fork tender. It has so much flavour thanks to the amazing grand veneur sauce.
    Supreme de volaille farcie de foie, peau croustinllante, sauce poulette/Chicken breast with foie and crunchy skin, poulette sauce, RM130

    This boneless chicken breast is crispy-skinned, tender and juicy on the inside, and very flavorful.
    Le Souffle au votre choix/Chocolate soufflé, RM45

    For sweet ending, we sampled 4 types of desserts. The word souffle derives from the French word to ‘breath’ or ‘puff’, and it is an airy, baked egg dish.
    We have no complaints on MF’s version. The crispy chocolate crust with an oozing, creamy chocolate centre gives this desserta sweet suprise.
    Larme de poires, sorbet a la framboise/Pear and Praline Tear, with Raspberry sorbet, RM36

    It is a dessert that is  full of flavour from pears, vanilla and praline. The homemade raspberry sorbet too, is full of fruity flavours.
    Tarte aux citrons meringue, glace aux citrons/Lemon tart with meringue and raspberry ice cream, RM36

    The custard is fantatiscally lemony which works so well with the buttery biscuit base and the fluffy meringue.
    Le moelleux au chocolat guanaja, glace a la pistache/Guanaja Chocolate Volcano, with pistachio ice cream, RM36

    You can never go wrong when it comes to warm chocolate lava cake + icy cold ice cream. It gives you that ultimate irresistible hot and cold hit which many of us crave.
