Foodie's:Renoma Cafe Gallery

Hmm....let me see how to start with Renoma Cafe Gallery. There's so much hype about this place and it is blogged by many bloggers. Pictures posted and reviews are oh so good that I cannot resist the temptation.
So, as you might be aware, Renoma is a well known label in the fashion industry in Malaysia and Singapore. From menswear, leather bags and accessories, men's and ladies' shoes, inner wear.
Recently, Renoma ventured into the F&B business with the new opening of Renoma Cafe Gallery at KL, the first outside of Paris.
While the ambiance is nice with unique decorations and art pieces, the food is rather disappointing. Not sure if we made the wrong choices from the menu as most blogs gave a good review of it.
So, we had:
1) Air-dried Muscovy Duck 
House-cured Duck Breast with Salad Leaves, Heirloom Tomato, Soft Poached Egg, Ginger Flower Vinaigrette & Asta Peppercorn
Verdict: Too salty smoked duck, not tender and a bit rubbery. Sad looking salad leaves. Poached egg is good though.

2) French Onion Soup Gratinée
Caramelized Cream Gold & Red Onion with Beef Bouillon, Red Burgundy Wine, Toasted Brioche & Melted Gruyère Cheese
Verdict: Wine? What wine? Not much onion taste and too watery.

3) Hokkaido Scallop Pasta
Pan-seared Sea Scallop, White Wine Vongole Style, Avruga Caviar, Malaysian Clam, Italian Parsley & Basil Oil
Verdict: Best item on the table. Fresh scallop, tasty pasta but not enough ingredients.

4) Croque Madame
Classic Grilled Sandwich with Gruyère Cheese, Black Truffle Egg Béchamel, Air-dried Duck Breast, Turkey Ham & Beef Pastrami
Verdict:Just disappointing...
And we had two bottles of Evian which costed RM38...@@...most expensive plain water I've drank.
