A splendid lunch @ Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar, Kuala Lumpur

There are not many restaurants in KL that we can confidently go to, knowing that we would always get a good meal there. Sage has never failed me and our lunch there last week was no exception. 

The last time we came here in August for Baby D's birthday, we noticed that they have changed their chairs. Didn't manage to snap any photos the last time since we were seated in the private room, but here are some photos of the latest interior. 

Open kitchen

We almost couldn't get a table since we arrived pretty late - but luckily we managed to get in. The food was superb, it would have been a real pity to miss it.

Hubby had the Homemade Tagliolini Pasta with Pacific Oyster and Parmesan Cheese. To be honest, we're not really big fans of oysters but Hubby commented that the oysters here were so soft and tasted so good. Is Chef Daniel gonna do it again and convert us into oyster fans?? (We weren't fans of foie before too, then we came to Sage and Chef Daniel converted us)

A really delicious start

I had the Slow cooked smoked salmon with mousseline of cauliflower and ikura. I love ordering any smoked fish from Sage, they have a great quality to them... the smoked salmon was so plump and almost buttery. It was sort of like eating sashimi but BETTER. The smoked salmon's skin has been lightly seared so it is nice and crisp too.

Top-notch smoked salmon

For mains, Hubby had the Herb Crusted Lamb Rack with Dauphinoise Potatoes and Meaux Mustard. OMG - this was really good. He asked for it to be cooked medium, the meat was still pink and absolutely tender and scrumptious. The dauphinoise potatoes have been arranged to resemble a pretty mille feuille.

The herb crust wasn't too overpowering

One of the reasons why I wanted to come to Sage this week was because I saw risotto on the menu. I've eaten risotto once at Sage and it was possibly the best risotto I've ever eaten in KL. Was it possible for them to present me with another winning risotto dish? Yes! The risotto was cooked to perfection and topped with the foie, it was just a beautiful dish. It was served with two types of sauce - mushroom sauce and crab bisque sauce.

I loved it! If u ever see risotto on the lunch menu, you have to come to try it. 

Apparently, Sage has a new pastry chef. Dessert for the day was Oven Baked Yogurt Cheesecake with Homemade Milk Ice Cream. The cake was rich and creamy. 

What can I say except another splendid lunch at Sage :)

  1. Alas! Devil and I have yet to visit SAGE. So sad... :(

  2. Me too! I haven't been here before :( Better get here before our Gardens Club card expires this year!! :(

  3. RM100 minus the 10% discount for card member is really really worth the price. I was thinking that this would have much higher looking at the food pics.

  4. i m definitely popping by in december when i come back, no way i can get this kinda food for aud30!

  5. oh damn, it make me really feel wanna pay a re-visit >.<

  6. My entire family loves sage. nothing ever goes wrong there! i find it almost at par with the michelin starred restaurants out there. :)

  7. wow, every dish looks delicious! that's not something we can say about most set lunches at other places, heheh

  8. Hi Baby Sumo! I've been away for a while. Am back to your blog now for more foods and to make myself hungry! Wow, seems like another great lunch at Sage. I like risotto!! Oh I saw your post about you joining Master Chef Malaysia! That's so exciting!

  9. LFB: Oh no.. why not? It's soooo close to your place. They also open for dinner mah :)

  10. iamthewitch: Have to go soon ok. The food is really good :)

  11. Nava.K: Yea, Chef Daniel definitely uses good quality ingredients in the set lunch and the price is very reasonable.

  12. Joe: Definitely! Though I have to say some week's menu looks more enticing than others.

  13. Fui: You should have more time to visit now yeah :)

  14. Michelle: Yeah the standards here are really high - plus the service here is really good. Really dislike service in a lot of fine dining restaurants in KL but not at Sage.

  15. Sean: Hehe thats why I keep coming back for more and more. I think I'm a Sage addict :)

  16. Fujiko: Hubby let me take a bite and it was yummy!

  17. Zoe: Hello, welcome back. Yeah, joined the Blogger Masterchef for fun.. unfortunately didn't win.

  18. This is the only restaurant I had at least half of the servings left untouched, counting from STARTER TO DESSERT.

    I've been living in Aus for the past 5 years and I know how a good lamb taste like. The one they serve in this restaurant, totally out of the question.

    The wagyu cheek tasted equally bad and I didn't even finished quarter of that dish.

    Needless to say, same thing goes for the desset.

    Their food is simply:-
    Soul-less & Unflavoured. Just forget about it.
