Brasserie Enfin at Oasis Ara Damansara: Restaurant Review
Storming the Bastille of Oasis Ara Damansara, Brasserie Enfin heralds a full-fledged French revolution in this neighborhood, liberating patrons from the tyranny of second-rate escargot. We have so few French restaurants in the Klang Valley, so there’s cause for celebration whenever one finally opens; Brasserie Enfin’s elegantly understated, occupying a first-floor space overlooking the Oasis Piazza’s fountains.
The menu’s extensive; some specialties might require advance ordering (24-hour brine-prepared whole duck, vinegar-sauteed rabbit, herb-roasted Dorper lamb leg with anchovies), but thankfully, not this bright-orange Mimolette cheese salad (RM12++).
Beouf bourguignon (RM48++), slow-braised shin topped with beef bacon lardon, since this is a no-pork outlet. Note that reservations are fervently encouraged; the restaurant imposes a limit on the number of walk-in customers each evening.
Don’t miss the restaurant’s own-made macarons (RM5++ each), which come in fun flavors like elderberry, apple with green tea, rose with elderflower, dark chocolate with chili and white chocolate with cardamom.
Macaron platters are served with a side of chocolate, caramel and basil flower meant to be eaten in a sweeping flourish. Brasserie Enfin’s philosophy: nothing on the plate is simply decorative; every component delivers a delicious purpose.
