Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar @ The Gardens 2

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Food, Photography

I had a beautiful dinner tonight at Sage Restaurant. Fine dining Japanese-Western Fusion Cuisine. If you think Japanese would not go with Western, think again! To be honest, it was the most satisfying dinner I had since the last time I went to Sage. All you need to make it absolutely perfect is good company and you’re set to go! Trust me, you’ll enjoy it too.

Presenting Chef Daniel who was cooking for us!

Complimentary Bread. Yum.

Sparkling Mojito (Non Alcoholic)
Sour like ice lemon tea, but it’s sparkling, with a tingling sensation!

Tranché of Buri Fish with Akame and Avruga (RM60nett)
I think this dish was made in heaven and served to us. It was so lovely! Every inch of this dish was pure quality. Smell that gorgeous truffle oil. The raw Buri fish was just right, Akame herbs was fragrant, the salt was crystallized and crunchy. The Avruga Caviar was heavenly. And a pinch of wasabi just makes the fish fly. Buri, buri!

Capellini Pasta with Shellfish, Tongarashi Spice (RM60nett)
This dish must be created for Malaysians/Asians. It’s slightly spicy and the Capellini Pasta’s texture is a little like mee suah – very smooth. Very Malaysian-inspired, I suppose. The shellfish – prawns and fish – was the best part. Fresh and juicy. YUM!

Halfway through, we ordered garlic bread just for the heck of it. 😀

P1090446

Lime and Lemon Granité
Don’t be fooled by its appearance! It’s not just shaved ice! It’s exquisite, expensive spoonfuls of shaved ice! However, this is the perfect snow white, shaved ice with a citrusy tang,  I like!

It was an open kitchen, and we sat exactly where we sat the first time we came – In front of the open kitchen, where we could eye the chefs. Hehe!

P1090453

Pan-fried Hirame with Sea Scallop and Crustacean Oil (RM95nett)
My mum ordered this for the main course and I had a bite of the fish and a scallop. The fish was not bad, but I really prefer a cod fish. The scallop was nice. (:

Hirame Fish. Yummy spinach leaves.

Almond Crusted Lamb Rack with White Miso and Nasu (RM95nett)
Maybe the chef’s recommendation was better… I had it medium-rare.. He recommended medium-well done. It was too tough for me. ): But the sauteed shitake and himeji mushrooms were gorgeous! Oh, by the way, Nasu is an eggplant. It’s hiding in this picture.. It can be seen underneath the lamb rack in the picture below.

Crépe Suzette with Grand Marnier and Orange Zest (RM30nett)
The Crépe was unexplainable. You would just keep nibbling on it and when it finally finishes, you would long for more. This is a bittersweet Crépe with a dash of Grand Marnier and I kept wanting more! After finishing the crépe, I ‘cleanse’ the rich flavour with the ice cream topped with the orange zest and it made me go ‘Mmmmm…’

After dessert, coffee or tea makes the meal complete.

I tried capture the lovely crested moon. Sadly, it didn’t look so good in the picture.. /:

Salmon. It looked raw.. But when you taste it, it is actually cooked. How wonderful chefs are these days.

P1040030
The bread taste so much better than other restaurants. Oh my goodness.. First time I actually couldn’t stop eating them! And its quite thin, it won’t make you feel full!

Sea Urchin with Consomme Jelly and carrot mousse
This dish has a taste that not many would like.. If I had more than 2 spoons I might feel sick. Honest.

P1040043
Tagliolini Pasta with Hokkaido Scallop and Yukari
The pasta taste like a smoother version of wanton mee. The scallop.. Oh my, what a great taste. Really! The biggest, tastiest piece of scallop!

Lightly smoked muscovy duck with foie gras and Kabu
Foie gras! Have you ever tasted it? It’s fabulous! The duck is just as great. It’s not the ordinary cooked duck. This one is lightly smoked… Half raw. Something like that. (:

Steven. He’s so cute.. He is a malay guy. Totally malay. Yet he is called Steven. A.k.a. Nor Azlan. LOL.

P1040071
Etuvee of Red Star Garoupa with King Prawn, Nantua Sauce
This was just so so. I dislike seafood.. But the prawn was good. The fish was fresh too.

This was the best dish I had. Although I’m eating almost raw meat.. It taste good. Really really good.

High Class Kuih Bahulu
I’m not kidding. It taste a hundred times better than the normal ones. I dislike kuih bahulu, yet I ate 2 of these.

P1040106
Feuillantine of Mascarpone with Ice Cream and Espresso Tuile
The black jelly isn’t the cincau you eat. It is coffee jelly! (Damn good. Like the Kopi sweet in jelly form)

Oh by the way, my dinner costs RM265 (per person) excluding drinks.
