Baby D's Early Birthday Celebration @ Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar, The Gardens Residences, Kuala Lumpur

Our son turns 1 this week. To celebrate his birthday, we took both our kids and their grandparents to our favorite restaurant, Sage. We asked for a private room since we had our kids with us and did not want to disturb other restaurant patrons. The private room was suitably spacious.

We took a little peek outside the main dining area and noticed that they have changed their chairs. Since it was Baby D's birthday, we had wanted to take a photo of him with Chef Daniel but unfortunately it was the chef's off-day. Maybe next time.

Baby C's first time at Sage. She enjoyed it very much :)

When the Consommé of Foie Gras with Fresh Mushroom and Pacific Oyster arrived at our table, our jaws dropped. I was surprised that they served 3 fresh oysters with the consommé... was only expecting 1 when I read the menu. The consommé must have been good since my dad had the look of satisfaction on his face when he finished.

The oysters were really fresh... managed to try one :D

The Tataki of Tuna Chutoro with Green Asparagus and Truffle Soy came beautifully presented. It also tasted great; the tuna belly has been lightly seared and topped with truffle soy. However the portion was rather teeny.

Pretty but small

Hubby's eyes light up whenever he sees wagyu beef on the menu at Sage. Everyone at the table had the Wagyu Beef Striploin cooked medium rare, which was served with a lovely creamy Dauphinoise Potato and French Mustard Sauce. A dish we thoroughly enjoyed.

The bavarois at Sage is fab and one of my favorite desserts here. So I was pleased when I saw this on the menu. The green tea bavarois was wonderfully wobbly and served with a delicious red bean ice-cream. The ice creams at Sage always have a wonderful quality to them.

We loved the red bean ice cream as much as the bavarois... excellent dessert!

And the wonderful people at Sage presented Baby D with a chocolate mousse cake for his birthday! Happy Birthday dear darling..

His sister helped him wipe the plate clean. Sharing is caring.. :P
