Rendez-Vous @ Maarof, Bangsar

Rendez-Vous: Round Three. Earlier entries on Rendez-Vous: August 17 & September 16.

Wrapping up our Rendez-Vous trilogy with pork pate (RM19++), a pure, pistachio-studded pleasure, chunky & rustic in the traditional fashion, kitchen-made & coupled with caramelised onions & a side salad.

 Perhaps even more enjoyable: Salmon terrine (RM22++), mousse-soft & delicate in flavour, paired with Marie Rose sauce.

 Rendez-Vous does an enticing quiche (RM18++), with different daily flavours, sometimes with pork, goat's cheese or other possibilities, featuring a fresh-tasting feel that works well even for those of us who might not consider ourselves fans of quiche.

Other classics include a briny Sete-style fish soup served with rouille sauce garnishing (RM16++) ...

 ... plus mussels cooked in blue cheese (a creamy, powerful-tasting combo), nicely accompanied by crispy-hot, moreish fries ...

... as well as beef cheek, bourguignon-style (RM39++; could be thicker & richer, but that might be a matter of preference) ...

 ... & satisfyingly succulent pork tenderloin (RM35++), still pink within after roasting, soaked in a cepes mushroom sauce.

 Rendez-Vous offers Prince Polignac Cognac, reputedly named after the oldest of France's noble families & now the official Cognac at the Royal Court of Denmark.

  3. That salad looks lovely, Sean, and the pork looks really good. I have never seen pink pork, though, and I would be afraid that it was undercooked? All in all, lovely place and beautiful presentations! :)

    1. Linda: oh yeah, i think the pork here was definitely less cooked compared to the usual, but it turned out to be fine, and we liked its extra juiciness :)

  4. I love mussels but not blue cheese, hehe.
    Few years ago when I visited Amsterdam, my friend asked me to buy some blue cheese back for him. It melted in the plane, that smell was horrible, hahahaha.
