Set Lunch @ Max at iHaus, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

I adore the food at Max @ iHaus; it never fails to impress me in terms of taste and presentation. The degustation menu here is excellent for those special ocassions, but on a day when we want a quick and simple lunch, Max can also deliver.

Having been here a few times for their set lunch, I have to say yesterday's was one of the best we've had. Priced at RM25+ for 2 courses (starter and main course plus a glass of Ice Lemon Tea), it is excellent value for money. And the service is amazingly efficient, we were in and out of the place in less than 40 minutes. Simply perfect for those wanting to grab a quick (and delicious!) lunch.

Complimentary bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar

Complimentary Ice Lemon Tea

For our starter, Hubby and I both had the Pumpkin Cream Soup garnished with chicken ham and borlotti beans. It is very rare that I enjoy anything with pumpkin in it, but the pumpkin soup here is REALLY delicious... rich, hearty and velvety. The chicken ham and borlotti beans just compliments the soup really well.

My mother, who has been trying all those years to make me eat pumpkin, would be very interested to learn how to make this

For mains, I had the Pan Seared Smoked Duck Fillet with Chardonnay thyme jus, mushroom melange and sauteed potatoes. I've had the smoked duck fillet here several times before (usually served with a salad) and it has been consistently good. Very well seasoned thin slices of duck which seems to disappear into my mouth at an amazingly fast rate. Love the mushrooms, love the potatoes, so all in all, love this dish!

Hubby had the Oven Baked Dory Fish Fillet with lemon chive cream sauce, mixed greens and sauteed potatoes. Hubby enjoyed his main course as the fish fillet was fresh, flaky and nicely cooked.

Dessert is optional at an additional RM14 or opt for the freshly brewed coffee or tea at an additional RM8.

Verdict: The set lunch here is great value for money, a price well worth paying for the fresh and quality ingredients they use here. Plus, there is ample parking space here so you don't have to waste your precious lunch hour hunting for a parking spot.
