The Point at Medan Damansara

A really good meal makes you really happy, said hubby after a great meal last night, and we were very happy on our walk home after dinner! You see, we tend to eat in a lot since it's not only healthier and cheaper, but sometimes tastier! which is really disappointing especially if it's a pricey meal. Last night's dinner however, far exceeded our expectation and though it had some imperfection, it was still probably the best meal we've had since Hokkaido! 

Having read good reviews about The Point, we've always wanted to go try but never got around to it, until last night. It was probably the Oysters promo that did the trick, well, sort of.

 Pretty good oysters for RM 5++ a piece.
The only other lot besides us on a Saturday night. They should probably consider moving to somewhere on a street level.
Foie Gras, Blackberry Reduction, Brioche, Pistachios (RM 48) - The foie gras was cooked and seasoned to perfection! The brioche unfortunately tasted more like white toast, the black berry reduction was nice but did the Foie need it? Nope. And the pistachios would be better off the plate entirely.
Slow roasted Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Fried Quinoa, French Bean, Curry Leaf Infused Butter Sauce (RM 40) - A roast chicken is normally just a roast chicken, and despite its elaborate description, the roast chicken was just that, nice but just a roast chicken. The breast could use some seasoning unlike the thigh piece which seemed to have soaked up all the flavor in this dish. The beans were a little too al dente for my liking, but the potatoes were crispy and beautiful! The quinoa... a bit pointless really, and while the sauce was good, we could not detect any hint of curry leaf to be honest.
Australian Miso Marinated Lamb Rack, Smoked Eggplant Puree, Capsicum Piperade, Okonomiyaki Pancake in Plum sauce (RM 55) - It was the most tender pieces of lamb we've ever had. The okonomiyaki with bonito shaving was DELICIOUS! Crispy on the outside, creamy inside, well seasoned, the smoked eggplant wonderful... in fact, every single component on the plate was perfect! Hands down The dish of the night for me!

Ok, time to go cook dinner for hubby.
