Frangipani Restaurant

Don't you love a fantastic meal? A meal that is so amazing, it actually kind of takes your breathe away. A meal you will be able to remember for years and years to come.

Hello Frangipani restaurant KL city. From the minute you walk into the building and a secret door opens, you know you are in for something special as you enter an oasis of classic design and calm.

Amuse bouche of tomato soup was a wonderful start, and then tea smoked duck complements of the chef was a rich mouthful of smokiness. The rest of the meal was a blur of amazing - each dish was built around a clever mix of subtle flavours with the end result being a complex plate like nothing you have ever eaten before. I can't do any of it justice by trying to explain, so please, just look at the pictures and promise you will go if you are ever in KL.
