Birthday Celebration #2 @ Hit and Mrs, Bangsar, KL

Last month, we dined at Hit & Mrs for the first time and really enjoyed our meal there. While planning for my birthday week, Hubby asked if there were any restaurants that I wish to dine at and I told him that I would like to revisit Hit & Mrs. 

Hit & Mrs changes their menu on a monthly basis, hence we sampled their November menu this time. Hubby also requested for the table at the courtyard since it feels a little more private.

After browsing the menu, Hubby decided to have the 5-course tasting menu (RM148++) while I will order 4-courses off the a la carte menu so that we can try more items. Prices indicated next to each dish in this post is the a la carte price.

Amuse bouche of foie gras terrine. Rich and silky smooth - loved it. 


Hubby's tasting menu started with Heirloom Tomatoes (RM40), whereby juicy tomatoes are served in a variety of ways - roasted, carpaccio, chutney and sorbet. Attractive, vibrant and fun to eat. This was followed by the Roasted Potato Skin Consomme (RM35) with gnocchi and baby vegetable. The consomme was the only forgettable dish we had that evening as it tasted quite ordinary.

Next, Hubby was served the mains of slow baked seabass (RM70), a delicate piece of fish served with black rice cremeux (reminded me of bubur pulut hitam, a savoury version), potato fondant, squid ink cracker and clam emulsion. Hubby's favorite dish of the evening was the Muscovy duck (RM85), where duck is served in two ways: slow cooked duck breast and duck leg confit in cromesquis. Cromesquis is a small round croquette. The duck was served with different ways of carrots. A really excellent dish!

Only those who order the tasting menu will be served a pre-dessert. Pre-dessert was an interesting thyme ice cream with potato puree. Dessert was Spice Poached Baby Pear (RM25), a fabulous end for the tasting menu. The pear, albeit being really small, was soft and filled with hazelnut cream. Served with orange financier and ginger ice cream. Overall, we feel that the tasting menu here is great value for money.

To start, I had the pan seared foie gras (RM45) served with apple terrine, hazelnut and lemon vincotto. I really like how the foie gras has been seasoned with lots of salt before pan searing, giving it a nice crust - a great contrast to the rich, smooth foie gras. My second appetizer is the beetroot confit (RM35) which Hubby had the last visit and raved about, so I had to try it this round. Definitely worth raving about, lots of good textures and flavour combinations here.

For mains, I had the Black Angus tenderloin (RM95), requested to be cooked medium rare. Perfectly cooked, and oh-so-tender. This was served with different structures of celeriac and seaweed - puree, sliced, diced. And finally for desserts, I had the Valrhona Chocolate (RM25) served in different ways - ganache, sorbet and marshmallow. Also on the plate is peanut butter mousse and salted caramel (which could be a little saltier).  Another fantastic meal here at Hit & Mrs - am glad that their food is consistently good.
