When I got the invite for Brunch at Lafite, actually I did not read the text properly, and assumed it was a normal brunch, but well, the "Lafite" in the sentence was already a good enough incentive, so you can imagine the sound of chorus of angels singing hallelujah when I arrived at Lafite and was greeted by THIS!
Ever since I tried that 63C egg at another place, I have been longing for this paradisical method of cooking the perfect egg. And as it's not something that can be done at home without a sous vide machine, presumably, the only place to eat this kind of dish will be, well, outside. The asparagus ragout and veloute did kinda overpower the egg a little, but hey, I love asparagus too.
For dessert, Chocolate Surprise,....
I opted for the French Rum Baba ...which I've heard about, but to be honest, is my first time trying.
So, WHAT IS THE DAMAGE?
Beats and Brunch at Lafite is priced at RM499 nett per person, 12noon - 3pm, every FIRST Sunday of the month only... the next one being on 3rd Sept, followed by 1st October, 5th Novemeber and 3rd December.
For the drinkers, you'd know that a bottle of Verve retail is already between RM220-RM250, and that's from the shops....Drink any bottle at a 5 star establishment will probably be around RM400...so from that angle, if you love food and bubbly, its a reasonable deal.
For reservations, call 03-2074 3900.
