L’or­angerie

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

In­spired by pala­tial glass houses where or­ange and citrus trees thrive even in ex­treme weather, L’or­angerie is a light-drenched haven with tow­er­ing French pic­ture win­dows that bring glo­ri­ous vis­tas of Mother Na­ture into its din­ing space — a daz­zling panorama of blue skies, the sparkling An­daman Sea and lush rain­forests.

Com­mence your dinner on a high note with the seafood otak-otak and lob­ster bisque, both of which are de­li­ciously on point. Redo­lent with en­tic­ing scents and nu­ances of lemon­grass, kaf­fir lime and com­plex spices, the sweet fish meat is flaky amidst the firm yet cus­tard-soft slab of otak- otak. The bisque’s light creami­ness and salu­bri­ous umami-rich flavour is a clear winner.

Smoth­ered with melted cheese, the St Regis burger fea­tures a hefty beef patty in between two halves of a burger bun lined with fresh let­tuce, sliced tomato and pick­led gherkins, onion rings and crisp beef ba­con strips.

The meal’s show- stealer is the bone­less grilled fil­let of spice-dusted ikan bakar. Served with pump­kin mash, ten­der mush­room and a side serv­ing of fresh salad, the fish will leave you rav­ing over its del­i­cate sweet­ness.

Com­pelling desserts to wrap up the meal com­prise a sub­lime, airy- light or­ange souf­flé with jack­fruit sor­bet and a wickedly deca­dent choco­late mille feuille. The de­light­ful treats are light enough to en­sure guests leave feel­ing hap­pily guilt-free af­ter wal­low­ing in such lux­u­ri­ous in­dul­gences.
