Simply decadent @ Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar, The Gardens Residences, Kuala Lumpur

If there was a Christmas Wonderland for gourmets in KL, it would be Sage.

As we arrived at the restaurant, we were greeted by Christmas decoration at the entrance and more Christmas trees inside. The only thing missing was Chef Daniel in a Santa suit.. just kidding :P

The theme for lunch at Sage this week was simplicity. Everything we had looked simple but was definitely impressive in terms of taste and texture.

Some Christmas "non-alcoholic" spirit

For starters, Hubby had the Honey Shōyu Glazed Anago with Foie Gras Salad and Arima Sansho Pepper. Anago is a type of saltwater eel, here it has been coated with some batter and fried. The batter gives this dish a very nice crispy texture since the foie and anago itself are quite soft in texture.

I had the Confit of Sea Scallop with Truffle Cream and Fresh Chive. This dish looks really simple, but believe it, it's absolutely delicious. The scallop was HUGE, fresh, barely seared so the texture was bouncy and eaten with the white truffle cream was just pure decadence. I loveeeeee!

We both had the Sous Vide of Wagyu Beef Cheek with Pane Eringi mushroom and Sherry wine sauce for mains. Hubby had something similar in the past before here at Sage, it definitely doesn't look like much but the beef cheek was "cooked" til tender. The sweet sherry sauce went very well with the beef cheek.

Dessert was Warm Dark Chocolate Galette with Caramelised Banana and Milk Ice Cream. I know some of you must be thinking chocolate cake is so boring... but this was one of the best desserts we've had in Sage for a while. The galette was perfection, a slight crusty exterior with a warm oozy chocolate centre and the ice cream was creamy and milky. Perfect end to our lunch, I would say.

So if you've been contemplating whether to go for lunch at Sage this week, contemplate no more and GO.
