7atenine's overhauled menu is really impressive _ we'll need one or two more visits to try everything that we want.

Avocado Crab (Japanese crab meat scented with herb dressing, avocado and sauce vierge). This was a true treat, with thick, luscious, creamy avocado slices. Comfort food that could mend a broken heart.

Foie gras with filo mille-feuille and caramelized mango. Divine; the mango mousse took the melt-in-your-mouth milkiness of foie gras to new heights.

Momotaro tomatoes with pecorino cheese shavings and white truffle dressing. The tomatoes were fantastic _ perfectly sweet, tangy and juicy.

Laksa croquettes with belacan dressing. Interesting, but not something we'd order again. The croquettes were crisp but too salty for our liking.

Trio of braised black cod with miso, coriander cashew pesto and tomato macadamia. Not bad; the flavours were subtle, but that was fine since the fish was tasty on its own merit.

We went mad for martinis since it was Monday _ martinis at RM17 nett!
Mint Chocolate Martini (bailey's, dark creme de cacao, creme de menthe, dark chocolate) & Apple Martini (vodka, monin apple syrup, lemon juice, apple).

Mudslide Martini (vodka, bailey's, dark creme de cacao) and Vesper Lynd (gin, martini bianco, lemon strips).

The Ascott, Jalan Pinang.

  1. What a coincidence, I was just looking at their menu yesterday. We ate here a few weeks back; loved the foie gras burger but didn't have time to relax with tapas though. They're still having their promo of get 3 tapas for the price for 2?

  2. wow..sean..ur really the FOODIE!
    Yes, the food is really good, even at their sis' outlets like Souled Out & WIP (now closed fr re-vamp).
    U do knw tht the current menu was Emmanuel Stroobant creations rite?

  3. Foie gras how many times a week?! Gasp!! How do you work it off?? And Avocado Crab, double triple Gasp!!

  4. boo: next round, fg burgers! yep, that tapas promo is still on ... hmmmm, i seem to be missing a tapas photo in this entry!
    nomad: read about stroobant in the star, but had never heard of him before that! :D
    550ml: ya lorr ... as age catches up on me, it's harder to keep the weight down ... sobbbs...

    The food looks lovely and it's so close to office! But I was last there in 2006. Has there been a change in management?

    Stroobant used to cook up in KL for Carmen at Wisma Lim Foo Yong. I attended the opening launch (long time ago lah) and subsequently ate there again. The food was very good both times.


  8. don't think there's been a management change, just a revamp of the menu to keep things fresh.
    ooh. i've only been to carmen once (last year). ermmm, it seems to have gone downhill...
