The Chateau Patisserie Cafe @ 88 Marketplace, KK


Recently F&B business in Kota Kinabalu is so happening! In July / August alone there were a number of newly opened restaurants and cafes in KK. Few more will be launched soon!

First we saw an aviation-themed restaurant newly opened in 88 Marketplace last week! Then we got a chance to try out this new French restaurant which I am going to blog now. This is the 3rd (or 4th) French restaurant in town! I guess people in KK are so hungry of new food and new restaurant! People are seeing an increasing demand in KK.

The Chateau Patisserie Cafe is owned and headed by Award Winning Chef Frederic Chateau from France. Chef Frederic won the Fonterra Pastry Chef of The Year 2013 Award during his career with Galaxy Macau - then he decided to move to Sabah to open up his own restaurant. I haven't got chance to ask him this private question yet, which I will find out during my next visit, soon *blink*

We ordered 2 types of soup here:
1) Creamy Shitake Mushroom Soup (RM14.00)
2) Leek Veloute Soup (RM12.00)
Both were served with Dark Rye Bread

Grilled New Zealand Lamb Rack (RM36.00)
Served with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Homemade Pumpkin Mash in Orange Thyme Demi-Glace Sauce
Demi-Glace is a common sauce preparation in French cuisine, which normally Red Wine is added. However I believe in Chateau they used other alternative ingredient... Need to find out more

I loved the combination of lamb and pumpkin, seriously!

Red Snapper Fillet (RM35.00)
Served with Artichokes and Aubergines in White Sauce

It's very important to pan fried the fish until just nice to ratain the juice of the fish meat. It was perfectly done at Chateau!

Fresh Cherry Gratin with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM26.00)
Given the slightly expensive price tag, the amount of fresh cherries on the plate was very generous! We were delighted with the presentation, but the texture was a bit soggy. Frankly speaking I was not very familar with this oven baked egg-pudding but looking around the description on the web, the texture should be firmer and more solid. I really have no idea.

I heard that the Chateau Patisserie Cafe's specialty is their desserts, I was not surprise with this due to the chef's background. During my next visit I would like to try their breakfast which is served from 10AM to 2PM (Price range from RM12-RM16), Creme Brulee and Apple Crumble.
