Cameronian Tomato Soup featured pureed local tomatoes infused with basil, topped with beef bacon and golden puff pastry. This was not a typical rich deep soup but rather a fresher spring style variety. The bulging covering had a flaky croissant like texture and hubby enjoyed this just as much as the liquid it was protecting. French Onion Soup was again a lighter version than many I’ve tried. Filled with a runny brew with plentiful strips of caramelized onions and simmered with local spices, this too came with a carbohydrate flaunting covering – in this case a slice of cheese encrusted toast.

The Wagyu Beef Cheeks and Lamb Rump was something special. Enough meat for me for a month, but hubby again had no trouble terminating the flesh. The slow cooked cheeks and rump were served on braised savoy cabbage, petit roasted red onions and enveloped in a rich bordelaise (red wine and onions) sauce.
The Fresh Highland Strawberries served with clotted cream is a MUST order. The berries were much bolder than the wee variety that arrive from Cameron Highlands to KL. The juicy bold berries didn’t need either the clotted cream, or the vanilla and chocolate sauces that it was sided with. We still dipped them though, nonetheless. Apple Butterscotch Crumble, was another traditional dessert founded with stewed apples, capped with crumble, oven baked until golden and served with warm butterscotch sauce.
