Millesime, which opened late last year in a grey space in one corner of Solaris Dutamas on Mont Kiara, is what we call a mellifluously named restaurant (the word means “vintage” in French) with familiar innovative dishes on the menu that people have come to recognize as the trademark of a well-travelled, even eminent, chef overseeing the kitchen. I am talking about Chef Max Chin.
Settling into the dimly lit, dining section of the sprawling Millesime restaurant is like settling into a seat in your own living room – if your living room happens to be done in the fashion of industrial modern minimalist architecture, that is. Oh yes, I feel very much at home here indeed. Perhaps the smiling Chef who cooks in the open kitchen just inches away from where I sit is yet another brownie point towards putting me at ease. I love this sort of informal dining. Chic yet laid-back.
Tonight we are at Millesime celebrating my birthday. Husband said too many new restaurants in town with too much going on. Let’s go some place cosy where we know we will be in “good hands”. It didn’t take long to settle on Millesime and their Degustation Menu as the dinner of choice. And an excellent choice it turned out to be. We have been dining here over the course of this restaurant’s lifespan and we must say that the food has improved. The reason being, we find that Max’s degustation menu is constantly evolving in terms of using better and higher quality ingredients. They have diligently taken into account our feedback and challenged themselves to work harder to provide a better dining experience for us , the diners. Simply put, their cooking is more mature and exciting than when they first started.
the amuse bouche
The dinner was near perfect. All the dishes were exquisite and we had little to complain about. Priced at just RM220 we were really surprised at how value for money the meal was. We would highly recommend the Degustation Dinner to our friends. For those who love their wines, there is a weekly Wednesday Wine Luncheon of four courses with selected wines at RM 120 nett and this is indeed the best deal in town in terms of a wine accompanied meal. Basically you get three glasses of wine, either white or red to go with your 4 course meal. The luncheons are all unique and have not been repeated since they started. How fabulous. This is next on my list. Right now, my stomach is satiated and I think I really need to hit the sack. Bonne nuit!
