The last time I visited Senses at Hilton, KL was a year ago when Mathieu Pacaud visited the restaurant to showcase his Michelin 3 Star Cuisine from L'Ambroisie. This trip we had a chance to sample Resident Chef Michael Elfwing's Cuisine.
Bread with Imported French Salted Butter
Our meal began with a basket of Assorted Breads that were served warm with imported French Butter.
Smoked Trout Mousse with Apple and Pumpkin
Chilled Shellfish and Primeurs
Game Consomme, Mushroom and Truffle
Zhao Phin's Soup. It was a full bodied Consomme that was very earthy in flavor from the Black Truffles.
This was delicious. The soup was served with some Cod Fish, Scallop topped with Avruga Caviar, Scampi and a Fingerling Potato and Tomato. The Soup tasted like a really rich Lobster Bisque and was so good with the caramelized onions that was hiding inside the soup. Presentation was also beautiful.
French Leek and Cod Soup
Michael's Soup. I had a taste of it of his soup. It was much lighter than my Seafood Soup and the soup contained what I think to be a puree of leeks and potato. The soup was also loaded with Caviar!
Black Angus Tenderloin
Wayne and Michael ordered this as their main course. The Tenderloin was cooked medium rare and had a really meaty texture. I liked the smokiness from being grilled over Charcoal but it was lacking a nice crust which I like on my Steaks.
Summer Truffle Chicken
My main entree and I loved it. My chicken was more of a roulade and was really tender and flavorful. It went really well with the earthy flavor of the freshly shaved Black Truffles and Truffle Potato Puree. The combination of Baby Vegetables made it feel like a rustic French Country Dish.
Scallop and Saffron Risotto
Our least favorite of the night. The Risotto was undercooked and as a result the starch from the Arborio Rice did not come out making this a rather dry Risotto that's not very smooth in texture. The Scallops however were seared perfectly.
Black Angus Short Rib
The Short Rib was so tender and melts in your mouth. It was one of my favorite main courses of the night.
Jumbo Quail and Summer Truffle Pasta
Another favorite of ours. We ordered two plates of this. The Quail was very tender and did not have any gamey taste to it. The Fresh Papardelle Pasta had a nice Al Dente texture and went so well with the Quail and Earthy Flavor of the Truffles!
Plum Sugar Mousse, Glutinous Rice and Jack Fruit
An inspiration from Thai Mango Sticky Rice. This was our Palate Cleanser. I loved the aromatic flavor of the Jack Fruit which cuts right into the creamy Plum Sugar Mousse and Glutinous Rice.
Chocolate Tart "Michel Chaudon"
This was my one of favorite desserts
Creme Caramel & Cloudberries
We really enjoyed the meal at Senses. Everything was beautifully presented and most of the dishes we ordered were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed their Seafood Soup, Summer Truffle Chicken and Jumbo Quail and Summer Truffle Pasta.
