Looking for a new joint to try for your next romantic date? Here’s where you can suggest your next rendezvous at Ultime Atelier & Boulangerie.
Ultime – simply translated from the French word, Ultimate is what resonates with the sole purpose of starting this restaurant, which is to serve the ultimate dining experience. If you haven’t heard, this latest restaurant in town that’s located in Wisma Noble land, Changkat is where you should invest your time and tummies if you’re into the french-meets-fusion scene. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to try out their menu before their grand opening last weekend just so you know what to expect before making a reservation.
What was on the menu:
Each dish that we’ve tried was a journey on its own; more like an explosion of different flavours with every bite. Although we were spoiled with various tasty yet delicious dishes to try that night, I will be highlighting my memorable favourites made by the Executive Chef, Shirosan and his team, just so you have something to look forward to during your visit.
To start, I was spoiled with a selection of homemade bread and coming from a bread lover myself, I did enjoy trying out the assortment of warm toasty bread such as the dinner rolls, sourdough bread, focaccia and more – dip it in truffle or pesto butter and your tastebuds will be blown away. If you’re a fan of butter, you’d be thrilled to find out that their butter selections are also made in-house – not only did it taste creamy and light but it went so well with a warm piece of bread to kick off the experience.
I was never a fan of cold soba but I’d have to make this dish an exception just because it reminded me of my love for garlic noodles. A major plus is the side of langoustine which made a great pairing to have with the soba. However, if you’re not a fan of garlic, don’t worry about it overpowering your palette as it was so subtle, you won’t even notice it was there before trying your next dish.
A spin to the sweet taste of a creme brûlée is a dish that dazzled me with flavours – you’ve got the black truffle, foie gras and a savoury side of breadstick to go together. It had the texture of a chawanmushi with a strong creamy taste from the foie gras. All you need is a few spoonfuls of this hearty dish and you’ll be set.
We were told to pick our main dishes between the ageing halibut or the smoked duck, but since I’m a massive fan of anything with duck – I just had to go with the smoked duck this time. Presentation-wise; the dish arrived with a translucent cover over your plate with smoke surrounding your dish. As soon as the cover was lifted, not only do you smell the charred smoke but it creates a great component (and drama) to the dish when your food is revealed. I personally think that the beetroot sauce on the side was a perfect match to have on the side to balance out the richness of the duck and smokey flavour.
Each dish has a story to tell and while I’ve listed down my favourites from the night. The only way for you to find out more is to experience it yourself. If you’re curious to find out more, our advice is to try it out for yourself so be sure to make your reservations here today.
