Amadeus @ Life Center

Rock us again, Amadeus! Earlier entry on Amadeus Bistro & Wine Bar: August 14, 2012.

A harmonious combo: poached egg, grilled asparagus and Hollandaise sauce.

Staying in tune with our fowl mood: rustic-looking duck terrine mixed with pistachios.

Duck confit. Too many renditions elsewhere are stringy or shrilly salty, so we always appreciate one that hits the right notes, like Amadeus' does.

Sachertorte, the classic Austrian creation of choc sponge cake, apricot jam and dark choc icing.

Something somewhat special: orange-spiked tiramisu, for a trumpet blast of tangy flavor.

If chocolate be the food of love, eat on: Ferrero Rocher-topped dark-and-white-choc cake with custard cream layers.

A chorus of cocktails: Amadeus Delight (vodka, gin, apricot brandy, sweet and sour, lemon juice) and Mozart (vodka, southern comfort, amaretto, orange juice, grenadine).

Also unique: sweet, honey-laced grappa, for a pitch-perfect coda to the evening.

  4. The duck confit looks like something Falco would approve. Looks like there are a lot of choices for good food nearby where CK and I work now :)

    3. Unka: yikes, I had no idea. Would have thought he'd be in his 60s now, either retired or touring the oldies nostalgia circuit. Sounds like a sad accident.

  7. I just made poached eggs with asparagus the other day, but not the Hollandaise cos I was too lazy. A great breakfast dish.

    The Sachertorte looks great!

    1. Ciki: okies, if they expand their menu, let's go! so far, am not planning to return just yet. i'm hoping they'll eventually introduce some items that are more obscure to set themselves apart from the many other outlets in KL that offer dishes like duck confit =)

  12. Egg/Asparagus/Hollandaise is the best combination!! And that's like the biggest duck confit I've ever seen!
