Babe, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

It had been a while since we hadn’t indulged ourselves in a fine dining. As a result, my friends and I treated ourselves to a touch of delicacies last week. We had learned that Babe had recently replaced its ELITE signature sets with new dishes, so we decided to give the new dishes a try.

Situated on the 11th floor of Work@Cleanwater, Damansara Heights, Babe combines a gastronomic ‘fun-dining’ experience with one of the best views in the city. We were all in awe with the charming view from the restaurant and were lucky enough to have a table which overlooks KL’s skyline and world-famous Petronas Twin Towers. We were all ready to expect the unexpected from the signature dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Jeff Ramsey who is famous for his refined repertoire in modern Japanese cuisine.

1. Ootoro Spring Roll (RM120)

Click here to view Ootoro Spring Roll
Two perfect-looking spring rolls were carefully placed on top of a layer of beautiful bamboo twigs.

Well, we all have heard a lot about “Tokyo”, “Kyoto” and a number of interesting Japanese words, haven’t we? So, what is Ootoro? Is it a city? To help you get out of any confusion it may cause, I shall first start with explaining about the name! Ootoro or otoro is actually considered one of the most worth-eating parts when it comes to tuna. Why is it so? Because it is the fattiest cut of a tuna’s underbelly! The gourmet food has made it way to become one of the top luxurious and must-try dishes in the world. Ootoro quickly becomes the favorite of many famous chefs around the world, and Chef Jeff at Babe also fell into its love bait.

The Ootoro Spring Roll is a symbol of finest simplicity. The dish impressed us with two pieces of perfect-looking spring rolls carefully placed on top of a layer of beautiful bamboo twigs (they are real and gorgeous!). This decoration quickly brought us back to the nature for a minute, picturing ourselves in a Japanese garden full of bamboos and blossoms. The chef had disclosed an interesting fact – he hand-picked the bamboo twigs from the building the restaurant located at! Personally, I love this idea as it shows how creative and detailed the chef is! Inside the crispy spring rolls were little cubes of fatty ootoro, fresh wasabi, soy sauce gelée and Myouga, a type of Japanese ginger.

Inside the crispy spring rolls were cubes of fatty ootoro.

I was so thrilled and curious to have my first bite of the crispy spring roll shells filled with chopped fatty tuna sashimi. It was a pleasant surprise! It was satisfyingly crunchy at first; however, my attention was quickly shifted towards the fatty otoro. The premium tuna melted on my tongue and for a split second, I felt so heavenly. I immediately understood why it was considered the dream of gourmet gastronomes! If you have always thought that raw tuna is bland and boring, you might want to think twice. Fresh and fatty, it dissolved completely while filing the mouth with a perfect combination of flavors and great satisfaction. A true epitome of luxury for fine-dining (and of course, fun-dining) connoisseurs!

2. Charcoal Grilled Alaskan King Crab (RM180)

Click here to view Charcoal Grilled Alaskan King Crab
The Alaskan king crab was stunning and irressitible.

The chef had done an incredible job in transforming the pristine seafood imported from Alaska into such a delectable dish – gigantic legs of Alaskan King Crabs were cooked on a hot stone with charcoal; setting aside were halves of juicy calamansi. Staffs will help the diners to grill the crabs so don’t worry if you don’t know how. We squeezed some calamansi over the king crab to elevate the flavours of the dish and all of us couldn’t help to get excited seeing the dish became smoky.

A close-up shot of the charcoal.

As disclosed by the chef, there was an ingredient used to made the crab meat tastier – the Kombu umami butter! Kombu, which is the king of seaweed, is an edible kelp used as a versatile ingredient and provides dishes with umami flavour, nutrients and minerals. The word “umami” itself is also an interesting word. Umami is an unique category of taste in food besides sweet, sour, salt and bitter. It did an awesome job in bringing amazing flavour to the crab meat.

Click here to view Charcoal Grilled Alaskan King Crab
Not only does the Charcoal Grilled Alaskan King Crab taste great, it also provides one-of-a-kind health benefits as it is rich in high-quality protein.

We quickly dived into our share of crab. Unlike other crabs’ meat, the texture of Alaskan king crab was so delicate that each bite is irresistible with the natural sweetness of the crab meat. I was not surprised when I was informed that Alaskan King Crab is the most sought-after crab species in the world. Not only does it taste great, it also provides one-of-a-kind health benefits as it is rich in high-quality protein.

This dish is voted as the favourite dish among the three new ELITE dishes among the few of us. Overall, the dish was sophisticated and immeasurably enjoyable. Oishi!

3. Truffle A4 Wagyu Sukiyaki (RM180)

Click here to view Truffle A4 Wagyu Sukiyaki
Beautifully marbled strips of A4 Wagyu were presented nicely along with Japanese vegetables and truffled egg.

The Sukiyaki dish honours Babe’s concept of using fresh produce and seasonal discoveries. Beautifully marbled strips of A4 Wagyu beef were presented neatly with Japanese vegetables and mushrooms. This sukiyaki also comes with a perfect truffle egg yolk. The Japanese vegetables were grown from the chef’s rooftop garden so it’s absolutely fresh.

Dip the cooked Wagyu beef into the truffled egg to have the best dining experience of this dish.

I wondered for a moment: what made Wagyu beef one of the most expensive beefs in the world? Visually, the beef possessed a soulful goddess look – beautiful pink with gorgeous marbling. The beef also stands out from the rest for its health benefits. Pure Wagyu contains mostly monounsaturated fatty acid rich in Omega-3s. To have the best dining experience of this dish, first, pour a bit of sukiyaki sauce over the beef and vegetables before dipping the cooked meat and vegetables into the egg. It was lip-smacking! The wagyu beef which cooked to our preferred doneness, soaked up the sukiyaki sauce and the truffle flavour infused in the egg yolk. Simple perfection!

Bobo KL, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

After a long hard-working week, my friends and I decided to get away from it all by exploring Jalan Bangkung – the quieter area of Bangsar. The street has gained reputation for having a long line of notable restaurants. This time, we dropped by Bobo KL – a restaurant with a stand of loyal customers falling in love with its intimate dining experience. We had an ecstatic walk upstairs to the restaurant and were all allured by the works of art hanging on the wall.

We spent some time admiring all the surrounding pictures.

One small tip: the number of tables is limited so reservation in advance is advisable. We found ourselves sitting comfortably at the balcony where we could have a good view of the quiet street and enjoy the peaceful ambience.

Grilled Black Angus Ribeye    RM118++

Click here to view image
Our first dish was a visually appealing Grilled Black Angus Ribeye.

“Colorful!” was the first word that came out of my mouth! Slices of beef deliciously were flecked with pepper on top and embellished with a lovely edible pansy, along with dauphinoise (classic layered potato in garlic-scented cream), asparagus, au jus sauce and of course, roasted garlic. What’s better than some garlic to mingle with beef? The dauphinoise is an impressive and interesting side dish. The potatoes soaked up the cream so it was wonderfully creamy. I would have to say the texture made the potatoes more authentic than slicing or crushing it.

The garlic setting aside looked like a pretty flower plating on the dish that we thought it was just merely for decoration. When we recognized that it is edible, it is such a mistake if you do not mingle it with the beef! The roasted garlic was soft, despite its tough look, which added a bit of excitement for all of us. Of course with its powerful strong flavor, it accentuated the beefiest of the meat. And the beef itself? Did not let us down at any time as a premium quality beef – the Black Angus! Pink and juicy, tasty and fragrant.  I relish everything about the dish.

Duck Confit    RM48++  

Click here to view image
Another impressive dish with a delicate decoration.

Here comes my favorite dish of the day! The dish caught my attention with its eye-catching color, it did excite us with the decoration. Again, a lovely and colorful edible pansy was beautifully dressed, along with mashed potato underneath rosemary and some roasted zucchini. The half-circled cranberry sauce really caught my attention for its vibrant color with a hint of sweetness. What an embellishment this sauce made along with interesting dots of balsamic vinegar and olive oil! After all, it will always be soul-satisfying for foodies like us to not only taste the food but to enjoy the art of decoration.

Click here to view image
The duck skin was airy crispy but the meat amazed us by its moisture.

Through a glance, the duck’s skin looked airy crispy but at the same time we were a bit concerned whether the meat inside would be dry. And when we got our first cut into the duck, we immediately knew that we were wrong. The meat was surprisingly soft and tender as it could be clearly ripped off from the bone. We could see every shred of the duck meat! The duck was well marinated and was further enhanced with the appetising cranberry sauce. Mashed potato? As smooth and creamy as always. Thrilled by its visual look and taste, there is no doubt why it quickly baited me!

Herb Crusted New Zealand Rack of Lamb    RM79++

Click here to view image
Racks of lamb were well-plated with a highlight of an edible pansy.

The dish was, again, equally ornate compared to other dishes. 3 nicely-seared racks of lamb were put on a piece of dauphinoise. Right underneath the lamb was the mint-chili sauce which did a good job on radiating the freshness of mint leaves and the spiciness of dried crushed red pepper. It mixed well with balsamic vinegar and highlighted the colorful pansy on top. To start off, I decided to take a bite on the pansy and I believe you should give it a try: mild and fresh with a sweet green grassy flavor.  The first cut of the lamb was smooth and so juicy as we could see some drops of juice came off whilst cutting.

Click here to view image
The skin looked crispy and appetizing. The dish emanated a fragrant smell.

Oh, I should not forget to mention the Au Jus Sauce. The sauce is a reduction of meat’s natural juice combining all the drippings and additional stock added. I loved to challenge my palate a bit by having the other cut of lamb mixed with dauphinoise and swiped all through the mint chili sauce. It was a delight as the juiciness of the lamb combined with the potato’s creaminess and tangy flavor. The classic mint sauce did an exciting twist for the flavor as it brought a strong yet fresh and bright flavor. I personally think it would be an extraordinary combination with a bottle of wine like a ripe, fruity Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon.

Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Last week we paid a visit to Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft at Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Building its name on its uniquely out-of-the-ordinary concept, inspired by the spirit of the Renaissance of Leonardo Da Vinci, the restaurant immediately captured our hearts with its opulent décor. We did not know we were about to walk in an invigorating experience with a magnificent “meat-ilicious” feast. Btw, we have some surprises for you at the end of this review!

Dim light and tranquil ambience, we immediately sank ourselves into a relaxing mode and drifted back to the Renaissance. Unsurprisingly, the restaurant did not let us down with their food art.

Leo's Famous Spanish Iberico Pork Tenderloin    RM92++   

Click here to view image
Our first dish was a visually appealing dish of Leo's Famous Spanish Iberico Pork Tenderloin. (RM92++)

Lying were 5 pieces of well-cut pork tenderloin atop a bed of mashed potato, sided with all-natural garden vegetable and Au Jus Sauce. Wait! It has not finished yet. The dish came along with two other sauces that presented nicely on the corner of the plate and its yellow and green color blended well with each other:  Hollandaise and Chimichurri – an Argentinian parsley-based sauce.

We could not resist ourselves from getting the first piece of pork dipped into the mixture of Hollandaise and Chimichurri. The lightly-seasoned meat was moist and tender. Both sauces did well on its job: Hollandaise – one of the French “mother sauces”, provided a rich, creamy and lemony buttery taste. It was an elegant touch to freshen the meat itself. Chimichurri, on the other hand, was a bit tart yet it worked wonder on the pork. It not only heightened the flavor of the meat but also played off the heavy nature of the food itself.

A close-up shot to show how moist the pork looked like.

It was not there that the dish stopped astounding us. The mashed potato was a true joy of flavor: smooth and silky, fluffy with tangy sour cream and…a secret flavor-boosting weapon: truffle oil! (Oops, I guess I cannot keep a secret!). The truffle oil was added adequately so it did a good job on complementing the creamy mashed potato. The dish is really enjoyable!

Grilled New Zealand Lamb Rack    RM75++

Click here to view image
Nicely presented Grilled New Zealand Lamb Racks

We had a quick glance at the dish: The lamb was grilled with its sides burnt but its flesh was totally a satisfying contrast – a soft pink color. It was no doubt that the lamb was made with blackened marinade, which gave it such an outlook and kept it moisturized inside. The mint-chili sauce – which is a combination of fresh mint leaves and a pinch of dried crushed red pepper, was aromatic and it provided a tart yet fresh feeling.
We loved how nice it was when all the side vegetables were given attention as much as the mains by the chef. If you are to enjoy this dish, do not forget to take a bite into the crunchy broccoli or fresh juicy tomatoes.

Click here to view image

The lamb racks got a pink flesh and slightly burnt sides.

Another interesting part for me is what lies underneath the lamb racks! Guess what? It was a simple sweet potato mash! I personally think this is a good alternative choice for potato mash as it not only came with a smooth and creamy soft texture but also provided a tangy and sour flavor which blended well with the rich lamb racks.

Leo's Famous Pork Knuckle Platter     RM108++    

Click here to view image
The pork was hidden under crispy pieces of pork skin. Side salad was skillfully added on to balance the visual look and taste.

The pork knuckle was a big wow for us as it was something totally out of our imagination. Setting beside wedges of potato and a dose of salad was something special: it was golden brown and it had a crispy look! Turned out the pork skin – lying on top of the pork knuckle, was puffed up into startling little bits of crisp. It created a fascinating look for us and we, as curious as always, took a bite without any thought. You might prepare for a bit of forceful bite because the crispy skin was a bit thick, yet still incredibly interesting.

Click here to view image
The dish was served along with 4 types of sauces which brought about interesting experience.

Not only amazed us by the special pork skin, the dish came with 4 types of sauces: apple cinnamon, mustard, au jus and red plum sauce. Wait, what? 4 sauces?. Yes, we were baffling with the same question: why would it need so many sauces? We believe these variation is created for the intention of creating not just a flavorful meal but also for a joyful adventure in the mouth. We are mostly impressed with the apple cinnamon sauce – which was tangy and interesting. The plum sauce also proved to be a good choice for some sweet and sour on the palate. We all agreed that this entrée would show its best when paired with a bottle of red wine.
