French dining at Topshelf @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur

Topshelf is a French restaurant located in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. Always wanted to try out this place but don't have chance until the Christmas eve night when I happen to be there with my mom. The food were good and some dishes above expectation. This is a nice and cosy restaurant. You can see the chef in action as the kitchen just behind a glass wall.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. I like two of their dishes the most. The pan seared salmon belly and mushroom soup with truffle. Both are well done and taste very good. As for the crispy aromatic duck, its not that crispy but the meat is tender. Taste wise is good with combination with the sauce and vegetables. The dessert of dark chocolate mousse is creative and well thought).
Price:3/10(Expensive. Since this is a fine dining restaurant, the price is at a higher side. Salmon belly at MYR30.00, mushroom soup with truffle at MYR25.00, pan seared catch of the day at MYR44.00, dark chocolate mousse at MYR26.00 and crispy aromatic duck at MYR38.00. Service and environment in the restaurant is good. One item which I think that they need to improve is that they don't provide plain water as drink option. They trying to lure their customer to drink their pricey mineral water. Its a bit let down for foodie who come here for food and plain water is the most basic necessity that each restaurant should provide either for free or with a small fee. The food selection were not many during Christmas eve as they have predefined set menu).

Nice and cosy environment.
