Pate en croute of duck with seared foie gras and black truffle shaving


Back again at my favourite restaurant, Sage. We actually ate here sometime ago, but because I have blogging Sage quite a lot, I thought I'd better give it a rest so my dear readers don't get bored reading yet another lunch review of this restaurant. But if you have an afternoon to spare sometime, you need to come and eat at Sage to understand why I love it so much!

Our anniversary this year fell on a Sunday hence we celebrated elsewhere first, then came to Sage the following week. Double celebration! Yay.  Hubby, knowing how much I love Sage, made the smart move of bringing me here. Good husband!

We were feeling greedy, so instead of the 3-course set lunch we upgraded to 4-course (just pay an additional RM20 on top of the set lunch price) with 2 appetizers, mains and dessert. As always, it always a delicious lunch with good service and also had a little chat with one of my favorite chefs, Chef Daniel afterwards. 

We started off with the pate en croute of duck with seared foie gras and black truffle shaving. The mention of black truffle shaving already makes this sound so luxuriously good. While it may look pretty humble, slice into the crumbly buttery pastry and inside you will find juicy tender duck meat. (Oh man, my stomach is growling as I write this) Simply gorgeous.




The warm fedelini pasta was served with seasonal shellfish and baby spinach. Not sure what the sauce is (presumably seafood stock) but it made the pasta taste super yummy. There were 2 big prawns, squid and scallops.


Although Sage is not a steak restaurant, they do the steaks very well here. Always cooked to a perfect medium for me, the grilled aged angus beef with fricassee of mushroom and Pommery mustard was absolutely scrumptious.


I still remember the first time we ate at Sage and we were served a wonderful strawberry mille feuille hence I was excited to see that they were serving mille feuille for dessert again that week, but with mango and homemade Cointreau ice cream. Pretty? YES. Delicious? Absolutely!

    1. LOL I wish there was such a thing as VIP status at Sage. I would be their Lifetime member haha.

      Yes, it's available to all. I learnt about it from PA. But 4 courses for me is too heavy since I eat quite a lot of bread at Sage.

    1. Hehe I knew about it for a while, but have never ordered 2 appetizers. Btw, another tip for you, they also have a lovely seaweed butter that you can request for.

  4. It's been too long since I've made a visit. Their lunch menu is so much more affordable than dinner but it's hard to get over there during the day.
