Chez Gaston, KL: Authentic French Bistro

Tucked away on one of the quieter streets in Bangsar is Chez Gaston, a restaurant serving traditional French cuisine. The kitchen, headed by Chef Florian Nigen produces unpretentious, hearty food which is also very reasonably priced. The restaurant setting is pretty casual during the day, and come night, it is transformed into a slightly more formal setting via the addition of white tablecloths.

We started off our meal with the Salade de crottin de chevre (RM24), a tossed salad with vinaigrette, pork bacon bits and baked matured goat cheese on baguette, topped with honey and black pepper. Tasty and well put together.

Ah, how I love cold cuts. The Plateau de charcuterie (RM41) was right up my alley, with Parma ham, saucisson, two slices of pate/terrine, air-fried duck breast, gherkins and onion jam. The chef selected the deer terrine and pork rilette, which was delicious eaten with the homemade French baguette and onion jam.

For mains, we had the Filet de lieu au beurre blanc (RM39), steamed pollock fillet with beurre blanc sauce and served with basmati and black sweet onion rice. A relatively healthy and light dish. For something a little richer, go for the classic Boeuf Bourguignon (RM48), soft Australian beef cheeks cooked for 8 hours in a thick red wine sauce. The beef cheeks was wonderfully gelatinous, tender and absolutely melts in your mouth. The mains are served with a side dish each, which differs everyday for variety.

Refreshing Virgin Apple Mojito

For a sweet end to your meal, try the traditional French vanilla creme brulee (RM12) or the rather interesting Ile flottante (RM11) which we don't see in KL a lot, a soft meringue floating island on an egg and vanilla custard.

Opening times: Lunch 12pm - 2.30pm; Dinner 6pm - 10.30pm.

Location: Chez Gaston, 12, Jalan Bangsar Utama 9, Bangsar, 59000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (Street parking available).

  1. My vote goes to the Boeuf Bourguignon and the creme brulee. Name reminds me of that guy in Beauty & The Beast. :D
