If you have driven past the Dang Wangi area, you would have notice Hotel Stripes KL and its impressive looking exterior and beautiful facade. This hotel is also the newest addition to YTL Hotel’s impressive portfolio of hotels and resorts in Malaysia.
All about French style and sophistication, Hotel Stripes is also part of YTL Hotel’s chic and stylish Autograph Collection for Marriott.
Located on Level 1 of the hotel is Brasserie 25, a French bistro serving up some casual French cuisine.
With its red brick arcades, mid-century copper sputnik chandeliers and dark wood floors, this French-style restaurant located provides a dramatic yet relaxed vibe.
The menu features all the French classics but we were having a hard time deciding. We asked our friendly and highly attentive waiter for his recommendations and decided to start with the Terrine (Rm 40), Foie Gras Poele (Rm 50) and Escargots (Rm 40).
Pan-seared to perfection, the foie gras went really well with the warm onion marmalade. A balance of sweetness and acidity is the perfect complement to the taste of rice, creamy foie gras.
Escargots (RM 40)
6 pieces of baked burgundy escargots with garlic herb butter.
What about some French wines to go with your mains? We tried the Chateau St Martin from Bordeaux and it pairs beautifully with most of our main dishes.
Stewed white bean with lamb sausage, duck confit
Brasserie 25 is really generous with most of the main’s portion. A combination of hearty sausages, luscious duck confit and wholesome cannellini beans makes this cassoulet the perfect companion to a cold rainy’s night.
Cabillaud (RM 80)
Pan roasted black cod filet with ratatouille.
The cod was pan roasted to tender and flaky perfection and has the best sweet flavor!
Truffle Fries (RM 15)
Jous de Boeuf Braisee (Rm 120)
Braised beef cheek in red wine, carrot, mushroom, pearl onion, mashed potato
Les Fromages Fermiers (RM 50)
Can’t say no to premium French cheeses. From light to rich, firm to creamy; there’s something for everyone
The menu is small but well put together and everything we tasted was lovely – fresh, nicely presented and authentic. Not to mention great service and ambiance too, as you can expect from a YTL hote.
