It's been a while since I dined at Max! Kitchen and Wines. Since I was in town for an errand, I decided to drop by on the proviso I could get parking right in front of the restaurant. I guess I got lucky as I scored a space after the second round around Jalan Alor and Tengkat Tung Shin. It was good to catch up with Max and to chat about his new ventures. Food was as good as ever. I had the set lunch which is now RM22++ with an ice lemon tea.
Although he was serving a red lentil soup, I went for the salad - a mixed frisee and lettuce drizzled with balsamic and olive oil that had chardonnay vinegar marinated anchovies, feta cheese cubes and olives. I really liked the anchovies which is a far cry from their tiny ikan bilis cousins from Malaysia. For mains, I had the braised duck leg served with polenta mash and mushroom ragout. I was fascinated with the mix of mushrooms as I spied chanterelles, a morel, button and shitakes.
If you're around the area, do drop by as the set lunch is really worth it - very satisfying meal for that price.
