Ever thought of having French cuisine one day after feasting your eyes with delicious French food on television or even on reality show? Do not have the money to travel there to enjoy their mouth watering dishes. Guess what, you can try them now at a French Restaurant located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. They serve from main dishes to pastries that can guarantee you will fall in love with. And I have GREAT NEWSChez Lèoniel came out with an afternoon Hi Tea set that is really suitable for pastry lovers. You can have your Hi Tea at Chez Lèoniel every week without any worry as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly!

Curious of what they include? I got you covered, they have the following such as Croissant, Pain Au Chocolat, Fruit Panier, Croissant Sandwich, Tart Aux Fraises, Tart Au Citron, Tart Au Chocolat, Assorted flavored Macaroons, Fruit Cakes, Sandwiches, Madelines, Financiers and many more. Just reading about it makes you hungry right? Their Hi Tea set comes in 12 pieces of different pastry specially handpicked by their Chef. It will be serve with your choice of either coffee or tea for the price of RM75 for 2 paxs. Besides their High Tea set, guest could also try out their other French dishes such as:

Croque monsieur

  • A croque monsieur is a traditionally made boiled ham
    between slices of brioche-like pain de mie topped with grated cheese and slightly
    salted and peppered, which is baked in an oven or fried in a frying pan. The dish
    can also be made with normal butter bread,with a soft crust. A simple, cheap
    version uses square toast. Instead of the butter bread, the bread may optionally
    be browned by grilling before being dipped in beaten egg. Traditionally,
    Emmental or Gruyère is used, or sometimes Comté cheese as well. Some
    brasseries also add Béchamel sauce.

Gratin dauphinois 

  • Gratin dauphinois is a traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraîche, from the historic Dauphiné region in southeast France. There are many variants of the name for the dish, including pommes de terre dauphinoise, potatoes à la dauphinoise and gratin de pommes à la dauphinoise.

I was glad to be invited by Chef Leoniel DG to try out their Hi Tea set along with 3 of my friends. So here’s a picture of what we got for our set. Remember please do not expect the exact same pastries for your Hi Tea set when you visit as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly.

 First Tier

It consist of two pastries:

  • Fruit Panier
  • Apple Turnover

For the Fruit Panier, they serve in 4 different flavour. Not sure what flavour is it, but from my perspective there is Mango, Raspberry, Strawberry and I have no idea. Haha! But trust me, it is really delicious. They wrap the filing really well with croissant. Neither its too soft nor too hard, just perfect. As for the Apple Turnover, its equally tasty as well. The apple filling was wrap in croissant as well if I’m not mistaken.

Second Tier

It consist of three pastries:

  • Financier
  • Macaroons
  • Pain Au Chocolat

Out of this 3 pastries, my favourite would be Pain Au ChocolatThis pastry is basically croissant fill with chocolate on the inside. Not too much, but the right amount of chocolate which its just right for the pastry. Next, Macaroons which comes in 2 flavours. You can either share half with your partner to try out both flavours or each of you pick out your favourite flavour. Financier is a type of cake origin from France. There are 4 pieces which includes 2 original flavour and 2 almond flavour.

Third Tier 

It consist of three pastries:

  • Apple Pie
  • Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese
  • Croissant

My favourite for this tier would be their Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese. There is cheese on top and ham on the inside, something you would truly like I believe. Oh and the crust was just nice, not too thick or too thin. Next on the plate was Croissant, this time you will get the chance to try out their original croissant without any filling. Lastly would be their Apple Pie. They slice it in the shape of a pizza, really adorable and instagram worthy.

All in all it was a great experience. I forgot to mention that we had Red Fruit Tea, it goes perfectly well with the pastries. In my opinion you can actually have 2-3 pax for the high tea if its all girls. Please take note that their location is a bit complicated, but you be able to find it by having the correct address. You can find the place by either choosing the few address below in waze, ‘Alliance Francaise’ or ’15 Lorong Gurney’. Once again thank you Chef Leoniel DG for the invites.

  1. I actually want to enjoy more of French cuisine. Honestly, though, the French words in menu are what make me hesitate to dine more that French restaurants. Hope this has a more ‘friendly’ ambience and I won’t make a food out of myself.
