Dinner at Madisons, Bangsar

It has been quite some time since I lasted posted articles about food. I believe many people have heard or even patronize the eateries along Jalan Bangkung in Bangsar. I've read multiple blogs commenting on the restaurants in this area, and finally I had my first meal in Madisons in Jalang Bangkung.

The cuisine in Madisons is light Modern European with clear flavours, and local produce where possible. The chef, Chef Kelly, headed Adelaide’s award winning Auge Italian restaurant before stepping foot into Malaysia.

I was there for their dinner, and their menu was a simple 2 pages menu.


The interior was simple and cosy; and the staffs were attentive and friendly too. Although the place wasn't too spacious, but the interior design definitely have a chic and stylish touch to it.

If you prefer to have a few drinks and some bites, you can always opt for the bar.

Bread was served while waiting for our dishes to be served.

Bread and butter
Normally I don't fancy any bread. However, these in Madisons were actually so good that it reminded me of the ones I've had in Lafite, Shangri-La. The bread was served warmed, crisp on the outside but perfectly moist on the inside - it also has the pleasant chew to it. I only wished they could served slightly more than 3, as I couldn't have enough of this. ='(

We had Pate (RM27) as our entree- tuft duck and chicken liver pate, red wine jelly, compressed baby pears. The pate was flavourful and creamy, and you could pair it with a little bit of red wine jelly to ad some sweetness to it. Warning: it might get a little messy-greasy while eating it due to all the spreading, but who cares so long they are delicious!

Pappardelle with braised oxtail
Our pasta of the night - Pappardelle with braised oxtail, blood orange, baby carrots and tarragon leaves (p/s: sorry folks, did not get the price for this). The pappardelle sheets were al dente, the oxtails were braised to tender, and the gravy has a hint of sweetness to it due to the blood orange.

Braised Beef Cheeks
We had their Braised beef cheeks with roasted cherry truss tomatoes and potato puree (RM40). Once again, the beef was so tender that I was able to break it just using A FORK! The sauce was delicious and the potato puree was so smooth.

Chocolate Mousse with Cocoa Powder and Salted Caramel
Dessert was not on our list, but I changed my mind the moment I had a spoonful of the chocolate mousse. The chocolate mousse was rich yet not heavy, the bitterness of the cocoa powder help to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate mousse, and the salted caramel added texture to the whole dish.

Overall, our meal came to a total of RM150 (excluded beverages) with 3 people dining. It was a satisfying meal and I'd definitely recommend this place. As for me, of course I'm waiting for my next visit to Madisons.
