Now, many of you knows where I'm working at but don't really know what type of food my work place serve. At Sage we don't consider our restaurant as fine dine but close to it though. Modern elegance with superior quality (yes we do have abalones, truffles)
Not say you, even my parents haven't been there before. Very normal reactions I get when people ask me the price of the food is: O_O". Typical. If I had not worked here I would have the same too. "Why is the portion of pasta so small! Can't even fill quarter of my stomach!" But trust me, you'll be full.
I brought my parents to my work place for dinner in conjunction with my mum's birthday last month, placing a reservation for the chef's degustation menu by Chef Takashi Kimura. On one hand it's the celebration, on the other hand it's to introduce my work place to both my parents. I guess it's something new for them, with all the ingredients and types of food.
The chef's degustation is a 7 course menu. 9 if you consider the amuse bouche and coffee/tea. It differs almost daily, depending on the ingredients available in season or whatever's freshest. If you or your gf/bf/parents are a food fan of japanese/french cuisine, why not give it a try. You'll be amazed. Well, we also have very normal food like oxtail pasta, roasted cod, smoked salmon, confit of duck leg etc. That will be a 3-course (appetizer, main course and dessert of your choice) or 4-course (with an additional chef's special of the day), priced at RM150 and RM170 per set respectively.
So here's an insight of how the chef's degustation menu is.
Amuse bouche: Smoked Salmon Tartare with Avocado & Ponzu Jelly
5th course (main course): Char Grilled Wagyu with Veal Sweet Bread and Yuzukoshou (that small lump of mustard-like paste that's yuzukoshou, a citrus chili pickle paste)
