Bijou, Mont Kiara, KL

SF was back from HK for a short break..yay!
Oh how I sorely miss my BLR (banana leaf rice) buddy.hehe.
As usual, we'll definitely meet up (though her schedule was freaking pack)..and she wanted to have brunch at Bijou. I'm not sure why, but of that many times I've been to Bijou, I've never brought along my camera..until today.
So, lucky me, I got to post about Bijou..finally.
We were there at 11:15 am, the friendly staff were nice enough to let us order from both breakfast (ends at 11:30 am) and lunch menu.
Something to share..the raisin toast..This is pure bliss for the sweet tooth. Toasts covered with caramelized nuts and sliced pears; smothered with a generous amount of maple syrup and topped with some mascaporne cheese. The combination is wonderful; something warm, something sweet, savoury and crunchy all bursting at the same time.
Decided to share the Roast Beef sandwich with SF..
Though the sandwich was rather 'wet', must say that it's a very flavourful sandwich. The sliced roast beef were juicy and tender, the vegetables were soaked with some vinagrette gave a tangy taste to it and the goat cheese spread across the bread gave a lovely intense flavour, but not overpowering the rest of the ingredients. yums.
Amy and Jen both decided to order Club house sandwich..
(i shared one with SF too)..Thick sandwich; beef bacon, grilled chicken breast, a fried egg, cheese and vegetables stacked and cramped between the toasts. It's definitely good for hungry diners. Must say that the flavours were more subtle compared to the roast beef though.
Sonya decided to take the waiter's recommendation and ordered the Stewed Chicken.. It was a long wait...but was it worth it? No.
Though the meat was tender, I find the sauce too salty. The cloves and star anise flavours were also a tad strong for me too.
A small bowl of rice was served with the stewed chicken. Tasted very much like chicken rice; heavily infused with ginger, sweetened by raisins.
Of course some desserts to end the meal..
The Chocolate Almond tart..
The crust was alright, but the filling was absolutely delicious! The almonds were roasted perfectly and matched wonderfully with the oozing bittersweet chocolate.
The chocolate brownie was also good..More chewy and fudgy texture. But if I had to choose, I would still take the tart :p
Total bill was RM260 (including many cups of coffee, few more desserts..)
Bijou is located at Ground floor Damai Sari, Mont Kiara Damai Apartments, 3 Jalan Kiara 2, Mont Kiara. Tel : 03-62012131

We were very impressed with your review on the raisin toast and decide to try this restaurant out. But to my disappointment the raisin toast is no longer in the menu anymore. :(
