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.

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.

Oriental Kitchen Restaurant | Food


Not sure what to have for your lunch with colleagues, all questioning one another about where to head to? There is a Chinese restaurant around The Strand, Kota Damansara which you might be interested in. They serve a variety of food, including Prawn, Fish, Seafood, Pork, Chicken, Toufu & Egg and Vegetable. It is usually full house during lunch and dinner hour, so just to be safe, it is better to make a reservation so that you would not have to wait for your turn. I realize its quite popular among office workers who work around that area, as their price are reasonable for the portion that they provide. Want to know what is the highlight of their place? They do not charge GST as well as SERVICE CHARGE.

Here are some of their popular dishes along with a few new dishes.

Best Seller

  • Kapitan Seafood served in Sizzling Hot Plate

– Which consists of everything in one hot sizzling plate. It’s my favourite dish among all the others. The sauce goes well with the prawns and squids! 😋

  • Crispy Pumpkin

– It’s crispy on the outside and once you put it in you mouth, it melts naturally. Pumpkin cover with salted egg, who doesn’t loves it?

  • Thousand Island Pork Ribs

– A dish which has final touches of thousand island, thinking about it would make you drool straight out from your mouth. The meat is fresh and tender, one bite and you would wish to have another piece.

  • Thai Hot Plate

– Depending on each individual, some might say it’s spicy, some might say it’s not. For me, it’s just right. They used charcoal at the bottom of the plate to keep it warm instead of candles.

New Dishes

  • Yam Basket

– If you are not much a fan of meat, then this is the dish for you. All types of different vegetables along with meat. The chicken is juicy and goes well with the vegetables as well as the yam which is shaped like a bowl.

  • Hot & Sour Baby Shark

– Never taste or seen anything like that before in other restaurants. Finding for something unique that you might not find anywhere else. The fish meat sauce gives out the combination of both sourish and spicy at the same time.

  • Rice Wine Chicken

– Sick of the normal chicken with herbal soup and so on? Then this rice wine chicken should be your top priority on your food list. Don’t even worry about getting drunk as the wine contains little amount of alcohol. The soup is so tasty that I could gallop the whole bowl all to myself.

  • Dried Shrimp Stir Fried with Pig Intestines

– Imagine having a bite from a warm, tender and scrumptious pig’s intestine. You will definitely love it! Not to forget there are dried shrimps as well which compliments this dish.

The owner started this business having an intention to have a place for people who would come from different states or even overseas to refresh the memories of their parents home cooked food. As many people nowadays are busy with work and are held back by work related projects usually they won’t have enough time to make it back in time for dinner and so this restaurants main objective is to be there to serve home cooked food for the people to remind them that even here, they can provide the same love and concern that has been put into preparing all these dishes. After all, everyone would want to know who’s the chef behind all these dishes that has been made with love which is the owner’s mother. She wants to serve her homemade recipe so that everyone could have a taste of how home cooked food would taste like and to share the love through cooking.

Besides that, they also provide set lunch which is as low as RM8.90 and RM12.20 (includes soup and drink). There are more than 40 different meals to choose from the set lunch.

Thank you Jessy for inviting me over as well as the owner Tiffany for a great lunch. 🍴
