We have been dying to go to an authentic french cuisine, and after reading all the good reviews about Nathalie's Gourmet Cuisine, we decided to tantalize our taste buds. After Ratatouille, I have been dying to try out the now famous french dish, I was a little disappointed that I was not able to get that at Nathalie's. However, as their menu changes every month, I may get lucky!
A thing to note when you are visiting Nathalie's is that you must not be in a hurry to going somewhere as the food do take a bit of time to get to your tables. It was quite a 'torture' while we were waiting for our food as the sweet aroma from the kitchen kept us salivating at the edge of our seats. Thankfully the famous french loaves with generous amount of butter kept us busy. We spent about 3 hours in total to finish the 3 course meal. Since we do spend quite a long time at the place, I would like to make a small suggestion: to improve on the seating comfort as the hard high stools were a little uncomfortable.
French loaves with lots of butter, cappuccino and a very unique salt and pepper "shaker"
Crispy Tomato, Sweet Pepper and Basil Tart (RM24)
This dish look so appealing that one part of me just want to admire it and the other part could not wait to sink my teeth into them. The capsicum was baked to perfection and was sweet just like the name of the dish suggests. However, the pastry was a little bit burnt.
Tomato and Cheese Ravioli, Tomato Broth (RM32)
Very filling dish, and the tomato sauce consistency was just right, though we find french food a little too salty for our liking. This is the first time I have had vegetarian raviolis outside Malaysia as raviolis tend to be filled with minced meat instead of vegetarian fillings.
Raspberry Souffle, Pistachio Dacquoise, Pistachio and Raspberry Coulis (RM20)Selection of small desserts (Tatin Apples in a Verrine, Berry Tart and Coulis, Caramel Macaron) with cappuccino (RM18)
I would go back for the frozen souffle anytime. It was perfect. This is lighter than the Italian gelati and does not have a heavy and guilty feeling afterward. It is certainly the highlight of this visit. The fresh raspberries made me miss Melbourne a lot.
