L'Atelier French Restaurant @ Lintas Jaya, KK [RELOCATED]

NOTE: THIS RESTAURANT HAS BEEN MOVED TO METRO TOWN, KK [13-4-2014]

[NON-HALAL]

The word "L'Atelier" simply means "the workshop" in French. But when we come to a "workshop" for food preparation, we called it "the kitchen" in English. L'Atelier Restaurant Et Barre is the second French restaurant opened in Kota Kinabalu after Le Safran. Just a quick reminder here to all foodiots: Le Safran has moved to The Peak Vista from Sura Sabah, do call 010-9560860 for more details

L'Atelier is located at Lintas Jaya, near Open University Malaysia (OUM) KK. It's a corner shop just opposite The One Hotel, bet you won't missed it easily! Do check-by even if you see the light dimmed (once I thought they were closed!), they are open for lunch and dinner daily except Monday! Chef Alex took our order while recommended some popular dishes to us. We finally decided to go for a Ham and Cheese Platter for the appetizer, Roast Duck and Lamb for the mains, followed by a cream puff as our dessert.

X'mas decoration still hanging around the L'Atelier during our visit last December

Very tasty garlic bread, we were already set our expectation high!

Salad with Chef's special dressing... a mixed of fruity sweet and sour

Onion Soup with Croutons

Ice Lemon Tea

Ham and Cheese Platter

Cured meat
Totally satisfy with the combination of cured meats, fruits, croutons and cheese



Smoked Duck in Tangerine Sauce

The skin was crispy like Peking Duck but the smoky meat tells the difference between two, this dish was so rich in flavors you won't
want anything remained on the plate!


Boneless Lamb in Plum Sauce
 
The meat was very succulent, but the unexpected one was the plum sauce.
I never know lamb steak can be paired with fruit-based sauce and be that nice!
Highly recommended for all lamb lover.

Compliments from Chef Alex: Roast Turkey

Dessert: Ice Cream Puffs

A closer look


I have very limited knowledge on French Cuisine (of course not French Fries!), very difficult to find one restaurant too! Unlike Italian Food, there are much more to explore in French Cuisine. I remember when I was small my mom already cooked spaghetti at home (authentic or not another story to tell!) but we seldom see people share about the French's. My first dining experience at a French restaurant was years back at Bukit Bintang with my buddies. However the memory was not that pleasant because I was offered hare meat (rabbit)!
