Sunday Brunch @ Maison Francaise


Nestled in Changkat Kia Peng away from the hustle and bustle of the Golden Triangle is a clean white bungalow with lush greens. Inside this bungalow is a gem in the form of a fine dining French restaurant Maison Francaise. A visit during lunch reveals the roomy bungalow being brilliantly lighted by natural light. Its airy, chic and inviting. 

Its fine dining but we are not confronted with snobbish waiters. Its lots of smiles, impeccable service and definitely lip smacking dishes.


Fresh from my Sunday run, I am terribly famished. Lucky me, food is prompt. I love bread and a bread basket is often welcomed especially when its a basket of freshly baked goodies with lovely condiments.
Pardon us but we do believe in having fun with our noms...
Bread toast, baguette, croissants and brioche
Jams, honey and delightfully rich butter.
Cute? Pretty? Its delicious!

Typically French, we are greeted with pretty dishes. Delicate and pretty like a painting, each was an amazing experience visually and for the palate. 
La mousse de lotte aux legumes, coulis de persil
Monkfish mousse with winter vegetables. Bursting with the sweetness of the vegetables and buttery richness of monkfish. 

Pretty and do you see a cheery Sunday face?
Am totally smitten with the foie gras terrine. Its rich, creamy and decadent served with beetroot and pickles like gherkins and olives that complements the savoury richness of the terrine.
Spread the terrine on your choice of bread. Its amazing goodness that saw us going into round 2 of our bread basket.

Accras  de morue sauce tartare 
Cute cod fish dumpling with tartare sauce. Crispy on the outside. Delightfully rich and creamy inside, its totally comforting and delish to be eaten on its own even without dipping into the tartare sauce.

Carpaccio de thon rouge , huile d’olive jus de citron 
Pretty like a garden, the red tuna carpaccio with lemon juice and olive oil dressing melts in your mouth. I loved it on its own while the hubster liked his with bread. So good that I wished that I didn't have to share this with anyone! 

Les oeufs brouilles aux  feves et ail 
Chef Franck Lamache makes a pretty dish out scrambled eggs with garlic and fava bean. Such rich and creamy eggs with a little bit more bite from the earthy fava beans. 

Trust the hubster to mix and match...play with his food if you use the word 'play' but his combination of the tuna tartare and scrambled eggs was such a gorgeous piece of lip smacking goodness perfect for a cheery Sunday!

Le filet de fletan poele sauce poivron 
I love fish and this seared halibut fillet served with red capsicum sauce is what I call the perfect fish dish. A crispy skin with perfectly cooked and juicy flesh. 

Dartois au canard sauce poivre vert 
 Duck pie with green peppercorn sauce. Its decadent. Its rich. A luxurious buttery pastry sandwiches a tender and flavourful duck filling. Its rich yet does not leave you with an overly satiated feel thanx to Chef Franck Lamache's signature green peppercorn sauce.

Le paleron de bœuf braise sauce moutarde ,
 Slow cooked black angus oyster blade is absolutely tender and melts in your mouth. It doesn't even require a knife as a fork cuts through it brilliantly. Served with whole grain mustard sauce that compliments this meaty goodness.

Platter of cheese and chutney. Perfect with some wine and champagne for a Sunday brunch!

Pretty platter of desserts. Which do I start with when all look so good?
• Mini moelleux au chocolat  - Rejoice chocolate lovers!!! This mini chocolate volcano is filled with a rich chocolate lava.
• L’entremet aux cerises - Refreshing  cherry morello mousse works brilliantly to clear our palates.
• Le parfait glace aux noisette et cafe - Who can resist such tasty home made ice cream in hazelnut  and coffee flavours? A brilliant match of flavours that goes perfectly well with a cup of coffee!
• Les madeleines au miel - Home made honey madeleine that gave me a happy feel because its Sunday and because these soft fragrant madeleines were so comforting.
Caution...its hot rich chocolate lava!

Maison Francaise has a brilliant selection of wines and cognacs. The ambiance is also perfect for events and if you are looking for a chic and cozy spot for your wedding reception, then this is a beautiful place for that once in a lifetime memorable event. Coincidentally, I actually revisited Maison Francaise a couple of weeks after this Sunday brunch for a cognac tasting session. Stay tuned for the post later this week!
