2015 Menu: Frisky Goat, TTDI

Frisky Goat is set to soon mark its first birthday - in less than a year, this has turned into one of Taman Tun Dr Ismail's most reliable stops for weekend brunches, but it's worth noting that Frisky Goat is a solid bet for full-fledged lunches & dinners too.
Link to earlier entry on Frisky Goat: February 2014.

 Don't skip the salads - Frisky Goat serves royally good ones, ranging from a vegetarian-loving roasted pumpkin & portobello combo, crowned with arugula & enrobed in balsamic reduction (RM22) ...

 ... to a smoked duck salad with longan & walnuts, dressed in champagne vinaigrette (RM26.50) to our personal favourite: crunchy, lightly spicy Asian salad of spring onions, coriander & chillies, tossed with watermelon & toasted almond flakes, topped with crispy-juicy fried chicken (RM18.90).

 Small plates are offered, ideal for tapas-style sharing, with options like sauteed paprika tiger prawns (RM18) & patatas bravas (RM10), capably executed enough to be showcased on a Spanish restaurant's selection.

 For a filling two-course meal, start with creamy cauliflower soup (RM14) before moving on to succulent, slow-roasted chicken confit, well-partnered with sweet corn ragout, mashed potatoes & thyme chicken jus (RM27.90) or oven-braised beef rib with arugula, mashed potatoes & extra sauce on the side (RM42).

 Frisky Goat indulges its playfully experimental side with monthly specials: Throughout January, customers can check out this unusual 'Awesomeball' (RM29), basically a giant beef meatball that's stuffed with spaghetti & mozzarella, garnished with pesto sauce & aubergine chips. Suitable for two to share.

 Want waffles? Frisky Goat's got you covered: Here's one of KL's tastiest savoury ones so far: A waffle 'sandwich' that's mightily packed with fried chicken, beef bacon, cheese & a sunny-side-up, embellished with corn salad & maple syrup (RM22). A calorie bomb, but well worth chomping down on during cheat days.

 'Pizza' waffles are available too, heaped with beef pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms & oozy mozzarella (RM18.50). And for dessert, there's the fruit-filled 'Vitamin C' waffle, laced with white chocolate chips & loaded with freshly sliced kiwi, strawberries & bananas, plus some sinful sides of vanilla ice cream, creme patisserie & chocolate ganache (RM18.50).

 Frisky Goat's dessert display always appears alluring - for this round, we succumbed to the temptation of dark chocolate & peanut butter hot pudding, paired with vanilla ice cream.

 When the sun sets, forego the coffee & finish the beers instead; Frisky Goat curates continent-hopping choices, leaping from South Africa's Savanna Dry Cider to Mexico's Corona Extra & France's Kronenburg 1664 Lager. Many thanks to Angeline & the Frisky Goat team for hosting this meal.

  10. Dinner was a disappointment, I am sorry to say. The watermelon-chicken salad was too heavy on the spring onions and too light on the dressing. I hardly tasted any dressing. The Awesomeball was really not awesome with a very light tomato flavour and too much dough in the Awesomeball. The mushroom soup was too creamy but thankfully saved by the truffle oil. Definitely did not dare to try dessert :(
