Lafite is a French restaurant inside of Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur with a 30 year history. Back
in 1985, Lafite first opened along with the hotel and was one of the very few
fine dining restaurants back then.
Through the years, Lafite has continued to provide
gastronomic food and excellent service.
The name Lafite was chosen to honour a chateau in France
that is famous for producing arguably some of the best of wines in France. As
expected of a fine dining restaurant, the interior exudes all things fine and
exclusive. A table near the glass windows would allow you a view of the garden, to rest your eyes with
plush, well-maintained greeneries.
To make things easier, Lafite offers a degustation menu
of either three or six courses. Both menus are similar in dishes like the Crispy Chive and Cream Cheese Roulade with Smoked Salmon, Marinated
Hokkaido Scallop and Aquitaine’s Caviar, Wagyu Beef Tournedos with Sauteed
Artichoke, Pommes Dauphines and Rossini Sauce, and Praliné, Chocolate and
Cherry Revised Black Forest for dessert. The six course meal has another three
dishes of Porcini Soup with Pan-fried Maine Lobster, Garlic Cream and Parsley
Coulis, Gratinated Oysters with Foie Gras, Spinach, Lemon Zests and Oyster
Leaf, and Raspberry Vacherins.
Each dish is cooked to perfection with pink,
tender beef, fresh and juicy seafood, and the freshest bunch of fruits and
vegetables. One could also choose their own
meal from the normal menu.
as one of the most expensive restaurant, it does not deter the amount of
satisfied guests dining in. If you ever decide to splurge a little, might as
well go all the way just for the taste of life’s great pleasure.
