WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - French -

A buzzing bak­ery by morn­ing and lunch, a classy diner by night, this quaint bistro gives a taste of Parisian life like no other.

Yeast has es­tab­lished its name as a bak­ery, thanks to its rus­tic se­lec­tion of freshly baked breads, baguettes and brioches avail­able in its day­time menu. But don’t un­der­es­ti­mate its well-cu­rated din­ner menu of clas­sic French dishes.

Start off with the baked es­car­gots. Herbed but­ter con­trast with fresh diced toma­toes spread over es­car­got and gar­lic bread re­sults in an ex­plo­sion of flavours. The main course se­lec­tion is com­pact but im­pres­sive. Opt for the hand­made crab­meat ravi­oli with lob­ster bisque, leek fon­due and black truf­fle. The broth-like lob­ster bisque is rich and plays off well against the light truf­fle scent and al dente ravi­oli. On the meat side, the grilled grass-fed beef ten­der­loin with but­ter, potato gratin and green pep­per­corn sauce is a good meaty choice. Served medium-rare by de­fault, the slab goes well with the cheesy, savoury gratin.

For dessert, the tarte tatin is a de­light. True to its bak­ery ori­gins, the hot tart is si­mul­ta­ne­ously fluffy and flaky and pairs well with the ice cream and sweet ap­ple.
