The hubs had wanted to bring us to Yeast Bistro @ Bangsar for months but never really got to it due to a variety of reasons. Finally we made a trip to Yeast Bistro last week, on a week day during the school holiday.
When we stepped into Yeast Bistro, we were a tad disappointed as we expected something more than just yeast centered food. On the glass displays were cakes, pastries, breads and everything yeast. The kids wanted pastas and spaghetti very badly while I wanted something more filling like some chops but none of these were in the lunch menu. The kids were very disappointed and urged daddy to walk over to our favorite Aussie bistro, Antipodean to check on a table but daddy came back with tail behind the legs. So we had no choice but to flip the menu at Yeast and order something to eat as everyone was famished.
I was really glad that Antipodean was packed and we were 'forced' to have lunch at Yeast, as originally planned. Though everything that we ordered were yeast based, we nevertheless enjoyed our French lunch very much.
Yeast is a newly opened, chic and cozy bistro that offers unique French cuisine. The founder of Yeast is a French man and his Malaysian-born wife. Yeast, specializes in traditional Artisan French breads. I heard that their breads are made using home-grown and natural yeast, which gives the breads a better texture, perfect crust and flavor.
The first dish that arrived was green pea soup with a slice of artisan bread. The kids with rumbling tummies polished off the bowl of soup in a jiffy and daddy had to order another bowl.
Mesclun Lardons. This is a french salad with egg and tiny chunks of bacon. Not sure what style the egg was cooked though but this salad dish was yummy!
Spinach quiche set. The girls polished off this set too and daddy ordered another quiche set, this time Salmon quiche set (not in picture)
Egg Florentine - love the way the eggs were cooked and I love this kind of healthy and crusty artisan bread with seeds and rye flour.
For someone who loves everything almond, I ordered this almond croissant with a generous filling of almond paste, yummae!
Egg Ben Turkey. What I love about this French bistro is the way their eggs are cooked.
The Cappucino which I shared with the hubs, which has a swirl of pretty foamed-shaped swan on the coffee. But the caffeine in the coffee was SO potent that I felt giddy and heavy-headed immediately! This seldom happens to me but if I drink really 'kau' artisan coffee, I will get a caffeine overdose, with such symptoms.
For dessert, we ordered a Round Cala Passion Tart and a slice of Moka Choco cake. I love the Moka Choco cake while the Cala Passion Tart which has a slightly sourish lemony taste was nothing to shout about.
The bill came up to RM207.64 which is pretty steep for a lunch but for the number of items that we ordered, I think it was reasonable, considering the location of the restaurant and the quality of the food.
Would we go there again? Most definitely and this time, to try their dinner menu.
