I have never try foie gras (鵝肝) (Pronounce it: fwah-grah) in my life, and as far as I know it’s an expensive dish. And it is also one of the world luxury’s food, apart from Caviar (魚子醬) & Truffle (松露).
But, that night on Dec 24, Christmas Eve, hubby and I have the opportunity to taste it and we both fell in love immediately with it. It was so soft, it’s like a butter melting in your mouth. One word to describe it – Gorgeous!
The day was started this way…
I have not heard about this, neither do I have dine in here before. In fact, discover this place on my last food hunt trip in Oct. I know I know, I have yet to post anything thus far, but am more excited about this trip instead. Well, just one reason, and the reason is simple, cuz, I was moved by Mama Mia. [grin]
Anyway, on the eve itself, hubby and I were wandering in the mall and we both wanted to have some quality time to spend on these 3 days 2 nights stay.
We walked around to see what to have for our dinner tonight… and knowing KL’s life style is better to make a reservation soon, otherwise, we both will have room service again.
I actually wanted to try Kampachi, tough I’ve tried many times in Penang, but this is something in KL that I’ve not try. Before I could suggest to hubby, I passed by The C Club, a place where I’ve read it some where, can’t recall whose blog and I was amazed with the food presentation and the services that they rendered to their customers.
Without 2nd thought hubby said let’s try this instead. So, we both walked up front and made the reservation.
Reservation made for 8pm, we were there 20mins early. The waitress brought us to our table and I believe that’s the supervisor whom came to us and checked with us how are us doing and so on. No wonder many bloggers commented that the service is in fact superb.
We both quite like the arrangement, and the table setting though they arranged for us to sit near the entrance.
The guy that came to us not long ago, he came again to check on us whether would we like to have a glass of wine or champagne. Since I can’t take any alcoholic I gave it a pass, hubby in fact have a glass of white wine.
So, the guy opened up the 2 bottles of mineral water that had put on the table. This is the only thing that I never like about them for not letting the customer know. Guess how much per bottle of this?? RM11 per bottle!!! Damn expensive mineral water that I ever drink before in my whole life. Mind you, this ain’t Evian mineral water, just The C Club brand name mineral water.
Ok, back to the food… before they served the soup, I was looking at the menu which placed on each table. And I realized there are 2 main entrée for each pax, and I thought it must be for us to select. But then, if I remember carefully, that’s the entire dinner arranged.
Well, didn’t care much, we were just enjoyed every moment that we have down here.
First, we were served Venus clam chowder with Victorian black mussel, cod brandade & torn tarragon.
Hot from the oven bread to either dip with olive oil and balsamic vinegar or butter.
Second that came along is the starter… and the starter is seriously gorgeous, and yummy!! Spiced duck rilletes topped with foie gras, frisee & port shallot reduction. What can I ask for more?? All the luxury food down on my plate for me on Christmas Eve!!
There are 2 main courses for the guests that night, first being served was Fruits & nuts stuffed chicken roulade, served with Brussels sprouts, carrots & giblets.
I didn’t really like it, but hubby enjoyed it very much. Probably I don’t like the fruits and nuts that accomplished with the chicken though it came along very well.
2nd main course is Pan seared Pompano tumbled on Yukon gold potatoes, asparagus, haricot verts & served with kalamata olive tapenade & basil oil. Don’t ask me what are those, seriously those are jargons to me. My eyes are on the food instead. [grin]
After the heavy main courses, here comes the dessert. Dessert is Rum raisin moist chocolate cake perched on assorted berries caramel, topped with semi freeze baileys cheese mousse.
The sugar is sharp and we’re told to be careful.
Every course to us is so fine and nicely presented. Just like the Mama Mia cast member says ‘Simply Gorgeous’!!
