Sage is tastefully decorated and there aren't many tables here. It's also refreshing, in Malaysia, to see a clean kitchen. It's a pity that you have to come to a fine dining establishment to be able to see it!
Confit of duck leg with Puy lentils and olives. This was the best of the appetizers at the table. Crispy duck skin, perfectly tender duck leg. I'm not sure why I thought those lentils were capers at first! Probably a brain fart..
Pasta with seafood was light and tasty.
Seared foie with grapes and red wine reduction. My first proper taste of foie gras. Don't like the practice of getting the product but loved the taste. My brother ate this so slowly it was excruciating to watch. Gimme some more!! (I only had a teeny weeny bite of it, but I can't complain because the minuscule piece of foie was shared among 4).
The foie looks deceptively big. It was probably 1.5 inches across.
Kelp encrusted Norwegian smoked salmon. Nice.
Risotto of Hokkaido scallop with aonori and wakame. This risotto was infused with a seaweed and chicken broth. No cheese like the typical Italian risotto. The scallops weren't as fresh as I was hoping. The crunchiness of the seaweed on top gave different texture to the whole dish, making it a delightful mouthful each time.
Dad's slow cooked lamb was tasty but a tad tough. I'm not sure if he was entirely pleased with it.
Slow cooked Wagyu with carrot puree and beans. Tender, juicy and savoured very slowly by my dear brother.
Mum's seabass was overcooked, but the beignet oyster was nicely done. Spinach was a touch too salty.
The other menu. Only available upon request when you choose not to do the Discovery set lunch.
My brother's Strawberry Romanoff with Mascapone ice cream was simply delightful.
