Good enough all on its own, or as a lead up to something from the grill, the toasted Poilane is a highlight from the Pressroom Bistro menu. This French artisan sourdough is made from stone-ground flour and baked in a wood fired oven. Imported directly from France, slices of the two kilogram country loaf are flawless dipped in oil or as a base for cold cuts, cheese and pate.
We tried the Mixed Platter of Cheese, Cold Cuts and Pate. For this order, two cheeses, two cold cuts and one pate can be chosen from the refrigerated display. Roquefort, Camembert, Beef Cecina, Turkey Chorizo and Duck Rillettes were all to our liking. Unlike so many places throughout the city where these delicacies are not stored properly and hence pick up the taste of the fridge, all specimens sampled were at the perfect temperature fetching maximum flavour. Macadamia shavings, tomato jam, slivers of dried fruits and nuts and a tomato thyme and garlic olive oil brought out the unique qualities of each item. Adding RM30 to the platter will furnish you with two glasses of house red or white wine setting yourself up for a wonderful afternoon intermission.

With a cheese platter and fish on our table, and wanting refreshment to end a particularly hot day, we chose the 2010 Paul Jaboulet Crozes-Hermitage Le Jalets North Rhone to go with our meal. The drinks menu includes a French biased extensive wine list featuring no less than 10 organic wines. House wines start from RM22 and an impressive near 20 different varieties are available by the glass. The usual spirits and bottled beers are a staple and the recently introduced Little Creatures brand from a boutique brewery in Australia and Somersby Red Apple Cider bring added interest. A full range of Illy coffee, designer tea from Ronnefeldt and mixed drinks complete the line up. Happy Hours are from 4 – 8pm brandishing net prices for house pouring wine and beers on tap.
