Med @ Marche

Last Saturday, Splashie Boy and the digital camera went for some fine dining at Med @ Marche, Renaissance Hotel courtesy of his office. The dinner was a thank you to all who helped make their recent company trip happen. I managed to persuade him to take the digital camera so we could share the yummy food he had that night.

Med @ Marche is famous in Kuala Lumpur for serving Mediterranean food that is innovative. Currently helmed by Chef Joeri Schreurs, a culinary prodigy who helped opened the first Belgian restaurant in Hong Kong.

Dinner was a fixed menu for approximately twenty people that night with two choices for each course. As everyone had confirmed their attendance, there were little namecards on the table to indicate where everyone would be sitting. To kick off the dinner, some started off with a button mushroom cappuccino. The other starter was the Marche Caesar Salad in Gentle Anchovy Dressing which Splashie Boy had. He liked it especially with the yummy sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese on top of the salad.

The main course was a choice between the Braised Lamb Shank served off the bone in Tomato-Bell Pepper Salsa served with Rosemary Flavoured Potatoes. Splashie Boy had this of course (lamb is his favourite!) and he loved the tender lamb.

The second main course choice was Red Snapper on Black Ink Pasta with Red Vegetable Juices of the Highlands and arranged with Seafood Tempura. As Splashie Boy did not have this, not quite sure what it tasted like.

Desserts were sinfully chocolate based. Splashie Boy had the Oven Baked Tortino with Melted Chocolate Center. There was a tinge of raspberry sauce together with the melted chocolate so it was not too rich. Perfect for the end of a yummy dinner.

The second choice for dessert was the Duo of Callebaut Chocolate Mousse; a white and dark chocolate mousse.

Dinner conversation at the table was sparkling, of course! Nothing on IT as that's work and oh so boring! but more on cars and tyres especially the finer points on how to differentiate between the Porsche models like the C2, C4 and the GT.

After dinner, everyone adjourned to the Poppy Garden along Jalan P. Ramlee for a few drinks until it was time to go home.
