It had been great this time and it has been fabulous all this while. Meeting many new faces in life can be such a terrific thing to do. They are fabulous, being around them can be so fun. We even share our thoughts, life and even the food we touch. Thank you.
My food expedition this time was to drop by the Samplings on the Fourteen for a well refined crafted dinner. This time is to taste their MIGF 2001 menu . I got to say I love the setting of this restaurant, indeed a classic place to be. Enclosed with a great view over looking the central Kuala Lumpur through the huge piece of glass window.
Siew Yee played as the host that night., looked timid and quiet at start but she was truly a great host to dine with. We just found that we had great common in food and interest. To begin the evening we were served with the ravioli as the amuse bouche. The pasta was absolutely tender done al dente with such flavoursome mushroon and cheese fillings topped over with reduction of crayfish sauce. It was truly seductive opening and the next got me wondering with excitement.
Hey, my excitement got me hooked with just the first course, the appetiser. Bellieve me, do believe me having light pan seared fresh scallop can be such an intereting thing to bite into. It totally sealed my mouth with such awesome sea sweetness and the light taste of caramelised burn. It was totally spot on. Then the other end was this beauty fragrant smell of seared foie gras bedded over a layer of caramelised onion and puff pastry. It was just delightful to forking into.
Interesting soup was served. The soups that I used to consume were mostly make from chicken broth but that night I got to try light smoke duck essence. It was very interesting flavour incoperated with a surprisingly light ginseng taste. Something different and it was good. Having the soup with smoked duck raviolini truly enchanced the soup very well. Interesting and filled with surprises.
For mouth cleansing, we had a small portion of tasty celery mint sorbet.

It was lovely assembled, towering the dinner plate. It was the escarole risotto that set as the base with the reinforcement pastry ring. The risotto was done perfectly tender and infudes with great flavour. You will just love the succulent chunk of pan fried black cod, topped over with a pan seared prawn. I found it delicate but was truly delicious. Definitley a good choice.
Oh! yes I ordered the baby veal, I just can’t resist of not looking and not having it. It came with such an adoreable refeshing pinkish look. Just nakedly readily to seduce anyone who are near it. Yes it was so tender and soft, truly intoxicating. Even the potato confit tasted luxuriously. I got ot say I just adores the smell and taste of the roated pistachio crust as compliment the whole veal perfectly. One of the best dish I ever come across, done to perfection and yet kept to simplicity. I liked it!
I was make to surprising when I was sevred with their ricotta cheesecake, it was dense in texture and it kept luring over my tongue with and warning!. I was baked to my liking, not overly sweet and having it with raspberry coullis just intensified my palatte. Lightly spooning into the chestnut mousse just mystified the whole dessert, for a second. It was lingering with interesting light soft texture and carried a strong creaminess in taste. Absolutely the dessert that I had been waiting for. Spot on.
Dropping by Samplings on the Fourteen was definitely a great pleasure as it was such a delicious pampering. We wer totally spoilt with the taste and flavour over their MIGF 2011 menu. For me my return is already expected and my craving already started as I am written this post. . . . . . . . just caught me with delight, Sidney Kan
