Glimpse of the menu before i was stopped taking photos of their menu

Souffle3

La Nordique, around RM35, made of i think buckwheat flour top with smoke salmon, serve with cream fraiche?! Taste not bad, although the middle got slightly soggy from the moisture of the salmon.

Salad that came with the pancake/crepe, with pine nut, beetroot etc

Souffle3

Shoestring Fries, RM10, just normal, wanted a more satisfying straight cut fries, explains my rounds of supermarket lusting over those fat straight cut fries from Lamb Weston

Just down the road from La Creperie is Nosh famed for their desserts

Valrhona Heaven, yummy chocolatey dessert, RM34, the chocolate tart based with bitter tartshell of cocoa aroma and smooth chocolate ganache filling.

Souffle3

Bistro a table is among the few restaurant in Kuala Lumpur which serve souffle, a dessert which looks so gloriously good due to its height and look so light. Above is their copyrighted Ode to Newton which is a vanilla souffle with custard and hot ginger drink top with some lemongrass ice halve with nutmeg ice cream, the ice cream is suppose to drop into the hot ginger drink once we are done eating the souffle. around RM38

I like all the items individually, and not together, the souffle and cream are nice on its own, mixing them together make it slightly wet and mushy. Whereas the ice cream and ginger drink are good on its own as well, mixing them both together just make it into a lukewarm gingery milky drink which is not too appetizing.

After eating my second souffle in Bistro a Table, first i had in Augustin Restaurant, Ho Chi Minh. Above my first try making it using souffle recipe for 2 pax by Eugenie Kitchen.

Souffle2

Some adjustment made, not having milk, i use whipped cream substituting some of it with water. It turn out quite good, rising high. Success!

Above are non-gelato dessert choices, else can choose any flavour of gelato available. For chocolate gelato flavour, I prefer their Choc & Nut over Intense chocolate. Their durian flavour is not bad as well, made with REAL durian pulp! Some food bloggers rave about their mango yogurt flavor, gotta try it someday.
