Bistro A Table, Seksyen 17

I was here at Bistro A Table after a recommendation by my friend online. Since it was specially recommended, and it's been a long time since I last posted about French cuisines, here it is:
This is what you see on the right when you make the entrance into this restaurant.
The lighting inside was quite dim. A romantic atmosphere to the diner, for sure, but also increased difficulty for my food photography session.
That's the light source. Very creative with Orchid plant hanging there.
Some of their personal collections of French posters to create the feel of dining in France.
The restaurant owner seemed to like Orchid very much. You can them everywhere in the restaurant. NOTE: They are real flowers.
Such an ambiance, a glass of Prosecco Champagne @RM30.00++/glass is just perfect to go with it!
Vanice, first appearance on my blog. Welcome, welcome! Couldn't decide what to eat at first because there weren't many choices on their menu. Eventually, the waitress stepped in to recommend us some of their signature dishes, probably because we took too long to decide. Hahaha...
Duck Confit @RM58.00++
Presentation: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 3/5 - "Just one single piece of duck drumstick and it costs RM58.00++!" you would probably think so. But trust me, after I took the first bite, I gotta say it was worth it. They really made you feel the money you spent was worth it. The duck meat was really soft; soft enough that there wasn't much chewing work left to do. This was their 8-hour Duck Confit with candied kumquats and puy lentils.

Dukkah Lamb Rack @RM120.00++
Presentation: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 3/5 - Dukkah is a traditional Egyptian side dish consisting of herbs, nuts and spices, which is typically used as a dip with bread and olive oil or fresh vegetables. So the lamb rack was served Dukkah style, along with Kataifi-wrapped chevre with beet puree. I could hardly taste anything gamey but if you still do, have the lamb meat together with pink cheese and it should do the trick.

Ode to Newton @RM37.00++

Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - This was the most amazing dessert I had ever had in my whole life. It was a combination of two desserts, consisting of the creme soufflé and a cup of hot ginger beer with vanilla ice cream. So, how do you go about eating this? Make a small hole on top of the soufflé and pour down the creme into it. Then, start with the fluffy soufflé first. I gotta say, this was the best ever soufflé I had had so far and it was far better than the one I had at the Strawberry Forever Dessert Cafe. Anyway, while you're enjoying your souff, notice how the lemongrass ice with vanilla ice cream slowly melts away into the hot ginger beer.

By the time you finish the soufflé, the ice along with vanilla ice cream should have melted nicely into the hot ginger beer. Now you can drink it. Hmmmm.... magnificent~ This dessert makes a perfect ending to a fine dinner. By the way, this dessert requires 30 minutes of preparation. So, patience is a must.
This restaurant totally blew me away with the amount of effort and creativity they have put into every single dish. I really have nothing to complain about at all. Just. simply. perfect. However, the price is very expensive but still, it was all worth it! Recommended for those who want to surprise their girlfriend or wife during their anniversary. As for my friend, she certainly had one of the best dining experience of her life. She left the restaurant with a wide grin and an "I'm satisfied" look written all over her face.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
