October 18th, 2017. Yup, I went to Pardon My French over two months ago. And didn’t have the urge to make the review. Well, maybe because I wasn’t impressed much there. I went at the time with Aline. When we arrived, they said that we couldn’t order the big menu. Only the small plates. Aline was quite disturbed because she called them first and asked them, and they said we can order everything on the menu. Annoying, right? Then they said that the chef hasn’t arrived yet. After the chef arrived, we could order everything.
Regardless of the previous matter, I must saying that Pardon My French is a beautiful place, dominated with blue and white colour, wooden accent, marble and golden interior. Lovely ambiance with Teddy Bear as the mascot, they caught so many hearts with the cuteness of the bear hahaha.. Before they opened, I messaged them almost every day, asking when they will open hahaha. Still, they needed to upgrade their service. When we wanted to order another drink, the person behind the bar ignored Aline when she talked to her. Hmmmph.. what a disturbing gesture. Hopefully they improve their service. Anyway, Pardon My French means that they wanna tell us, “sorry we’re not French restaurant. we’re Japanese restaurant with a touch of French.” Nice. Oh, one more, they have spacious parking lot. Cool.
Lemonade Lychee 40k
Refershing drink.with sweet and sour flavour. The presentation was very beautiful. A cooling drink for hot day.
Es Kopi Susu My Mother 40k
And I still don’t know why they named it es kopi susu my mother. Made by a mom, perhaps? Well, it was good, with light texture and mild flavour. Made by coffee, milk and chocolate, it was perfect for my taste bud. *applause*
Lasagne Rolls 60k
Home-made Lasagne Sheets, Bolognese Sauce, Creamed Spinach
Tasted good, but the texture was too mushy. The spinach was too creamy and too soggy. I prefer they make the spinach crunchy hahaha.. Generous meat. Good!
Truffle Wagyu Don 135k
Wagyu Beef, Steamed Rice, 63*Eggs
I put high expectation to this menu. Too bad, I didn’t find any special flavour in this menu. Well, the wagyu beef was tender but needed more flavour. And the rice was tasteless. Hope they will improve the flavour.
