If you are looking for different dishes to try for dinner, Entier French Dining may be the answer. This guide explains if you should give this menu a try.
What do you imagine when you hear about French dining (besides Pixar’s Ratatouille)? I’m guessing croissants and baguettes come to mind, maybe a complimentary slice of brie cheese.
Little did you know that there’s much more to French cuisine than carbs. If you want an experience that will sate your inner Francophile, you need to visit Entier French Dining. You can literally taste the entirety of French Cuisine at this luxury restaurant.
Entier French Dining isn’t some quick and lazy fusion place. This restaurant is a perfectly authentic, masterful rendition of French cooking that you won’t find anywhere else.
Their wide array of beef, poultry, seafood, and dessert is simply to die for.
Entier French Dining is a Work of Art
Look, Entier French Dining isn’t your local joint.
The restaurant overlooks Kuala Lumpur from the 41st floor of a high-rise building in the middle of the bustling city.
Not only is the interior a gorgeous, sleek dining hall adorned with mod lightbulb fixtures. The tables are supposed to be communal, for elites obviously, but nonetheless, the sentiment is there. The decor is luxurious and modest at the same time. You get the gist.
Their food is the real breadwinner. No croissants though, sorry!
They have a nose-to-tail culinary approach, where they use the entier (yes, French for entire) animal and vegetable. There is zero waste.
Even with all the scraps of their produce, the dishes are Instagram-worthy and they taste even better. Your friends are going to wonder what you do for a living to be dining here.
Now that you’ve had a taste of the entier vibe of this place, let me show you some staples.
Behold, the Appetizers
Entier does not play around with their appetizers.
You’re going to have a mix of emotions. Do you want a bite of heaven or are you scared of ruining this beautiful piece of culinary art? I say, take the picture and dig in.
Their Prawn and Mango starter is out of this world. This startling combination works seamlessly in your mouth. The prawn is immersed into their bright mango chutney and topped with a vadouvan spice oil and Highlands garden herbs! Talk about eating nature’s wonders.
You haven’t tried greens before you tried their Garden starter on the weekend brunch menu. It’s made with their locally grown mixed greens, pomelo, pomegranate, herbs, tossed in a calamansi vinaigrette. You’ll need this to prepare for your rich main course and dessert.
Last but not least, something as appetizing and most notably French like their Truffle and Toast can’t be ignored. It’s a Croque Madame (French for grilled cheese premium) with truffle, and mornay sauce, and parmesan cheese, and of course, a sunny-side-up egg. Nothing can beat the creaminess of this appetizer.
Entier French Dining Menu: Beef
Your main course will have protein. It’s inevitable. The French love all kinds of animals.
Now, let’s start with our most familiar choice of protein: beef.
Their signature is the Côte de Boeuf, which is apparently 1kg of meat pre-cooked. That’s an insane portion of food cooked to absolute perfection. They take Australian Murray pure beef prime-rib and Josper-grill it, a hybrid of an oven and a grill.
Another signature isn’t French, but Japanese! It’s their A5 Wagyu with Rice. This dish is served with pan-seared foie gras, oxtail soup, and topped with truffle. The fusion dish we all needed!
Poultry: Something You Thought You Knew
Next on the protein list is poultry.
Chicken Liver and Skin is one crazy dish they serve on their dinner menu. It might sound a bit intimidating, but it’s better than any chicken and waffles you’ve had elsewhere. Chicken liver pate is served on top of a buttery French waffle with fermented mango and crispy chicken skin as garnish.
You’re not eating French meals if you don’t have some duck, which is why you should order their signature Whole Duck. They take the entier thing, a whopping 1 kg, and roast and confit it in honey orange glaze. Served with creamy mashed potatoes, garlic, and duck juice. Don’t yuck my yum!
Entier's Seafood and Mollusks
Where to begin? The most basic fish is salmon, but Entier sure does it right. They cure Scottish salmon and serve it with sorrel sauce. Apparently, Entier’s Chef Masashi Horiuchi was inspired by French legend Chef Troisgros.
Escargot is a must-have in the French dining experience. Get over your fears and become the true Frenchie you’ve always wanted to be! Entier French Dining serves an Escargot that’s cooked in a croquette with burgundy garlic butter.
Maybe you’re in the mood for some crustaceans. I’d recommend the Crab, which is an Entier signature. It’s cold mud crab covered in curry mayonnaise and crab butter, topped with a “mountain caviar.” It’s a huge pile of caviar on top of silky crab. Who could ask for more?
Desserts: Less is More
You’d think that this outrageously fancy restaurant would serve insane desserts you’ve never heard of. Well, you’re wrong.
Entier French Dining goes back to the basics of French cuisine: the madeleine sponge cake. Entier’s madeleine is freshly baked, caramelized to perfection, and coated in rich Trigona honey. Their Honey and Madeleine is a madeleine cake covered in brown butter and honey and served with ice cream on the side.
Another famous dessert dish from Entier is their Basque Cheesecake, which means burnt cheesecake. This is like a regular cheesecake, but made with more flour and baked until the top of the cake forms a burnt crust. They call it Cheese and Vanilla, and they use Chantilly cream and Termeloh vanilla.
Yes, You Should Try It Before You Die
I didn’t think you needed this much convincing to know that Entier French Dining is heaven on earth.
Imagine having dinner with family at Entier, overlooking the sparkling city while you nibble on their Prawn and Mango appetizer, and then ending the night with that hot madeleine topped with cold ice cream.
Words and photos don’t do this place justice. You just have to be there. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time because everyone wants to be there!
If not, at least order online on the Entier French Dining Website or contact them on their Facebook page.
