Soleil Restaurant @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

Soleil: Round Two. Earlier entry: August 6.

Jerusalem artichoke broth with crispy lotus root (RM36++). Smoothly creamy, delicate in flavor. Sure, this is expensive for plain-looking soup, but it's a nice change from, say, mushroom soup.

Cool combo of East-West elements: Ocean trout marinated with Asian herbs & spices, refreshingly topped with Thai-inspired mango salad & tomyam-tinged jelly cubes (RM36++).

Risotto with squid & shrimp, fennel, basil cream & aioli (RM68++). Satisfyingly thick, but perhaps cooked for a little longer than necessary.

More squid, this time stuffed & laid over a seafood emulsion (RM36++). What lies within?

A fluffy mince of prawns & veggies. Quite nicely done, this one.

Don't skip dessert at Soleil: this pandan crepe with coconut sorbet (RM26++) is a bona fide hit.

Open the package to uncover bananas sweetened with Gula Melaka. Mighty fine fusion.

Chocolate tart (rich), fig marshmallow (heavenly) & lime madeleine (the Klang Valley's best?).

Soleil supplies an excellent opportunity for us to explore whether we prefer Burgundy or Bordeaux reds; both are available by the glass at RM32++.

Honorable mention for Soleil's hardworking, friendly & knowledgeably efficient service team.
