La Creperie di Caroline @ Jalan Telawi, Bangsar

8:00:00 AM

La Creperie di Caroline is a French restaurant owned and operated by a real French! Her name of course is, Caroline. Located in the busy streets of Jalan Telawi, La Creperie di Caroline stands out with it's all black exterior and a veranda-dining area. Despite it being named La Creperie, they have plenty more to offer. The menu is extensive and it ranges from classic western cuisines to French cuisines.


The entrance. 



Lorina Pink Lemonade - RM12

We began with an extremely sparkling pink lemonade, where it burst out on me when I tried to open it. The French soda was really refreshing with a hint of bitterness at the end. Soothes and cleanses the palette quite well. 


Fish & Chips - RM

Beautifully plated on a black slate, served with fries, salad, tartar sauce and rock salt. Fried to crispy perfection and the fish was flaky as well. Loved the additional rock salt as it gave it that extra burst of saltiness. Fresh and absolutely delicious. Recommended.


Mussels and Fries Trilogy - RM51

I do not know why is it priced that way, with the 1 sticking at the end. Nevertheless, it was really worth it. Mussels cooked in 3 different sauces (out of 4 options available) and there were plenty! My pick were the Mariniere (white wine) sauce, curry and Provencales (tomatoes).

Among the 3, my favourite was the Mariniere version. Not only did it had a great depth of flavour with the ginger, rosemary and white wine, the broth was drinkable on its own as well! Slightly tangy and it smells absolutely amazing. Wouldn't mind drinking that every morning as part of my soup. 

The curry mussels really put plenty of Malaysians to shame. Who would've though that a French restaurant will be able to do a better version of curry compared to many of Malaysian's restaurants. Not saying all of them, but a considerable amount definite do suck at making curry. 

Served with a basket of bread and fries to dip with the sauce!


The aftermath 1st plate. There were 3 of these plates. 


Pesto Penne - 23

La Creperie di Caroline's version of the Pesto was simple and straight-forward. Homemade pesto with pine nuts served with slices of Parmesan cheese. Well seasoned and coated the penne beautifully. Each piece was wrapped in that delicious sauce. 


La Forestiere (crepe) - RM29

As the name of the restaurant suggests, they should excel in serving crepes. Having more than 6 different types of savoury crepes and a whole bunch of sweet crepes, the time spent on choosing one was particularly difficult. Not only were they named mostly in French, it's hard to imagine what it would look like at the end. 

Regardless, I had one of their best seller, the La Forestiere crepe. Served with cream mushroom, chicken and an egg yolk on top. Made with imported buckwheat flour from France, the La Forestiere definitely was enough for 1 person. It actually made me rather full. Good flavour, loved the crepe texture and also the additional egg yolk.



Pommes Caramelisees & Caramel Beurre Sale - RM22

See what I mean about the French names? So intimidating! Haha. 

Anyway, the Pommes Caramlisees & Caramel Beurre Sale is a sweet crepe (obviously), an alternative to the savoury crepe. Made with caramelized apples and homemade salted butter caramel sauce with whipped cream on the side and finished with a scoop of ice cream and some icing sugar. 


Loved the flavour and caramelization of the apple, slightly sweet but definitely bearable as the whipped cream does help in reducing the sweetness by a little. 


La Liege - RM34

Finally, I had the waffle with a selection of fresh fruits, strawberry ice cream, strawberry sorbet and whipped cream. A mouth-gasm for anyone who loves sweet stuff, fruits, ice cream or even waffle for that matter. Look at the amount of fruits! Loved the sorbet very much, not too fond of the strawberry ice cream though. The only issue I had with this was that the fruits wasn't as cold.

Overall, everything that I've had at La Creperie di Caroline was pretty damn good. I especially loved the Trilogy of mussels and their white wine sauce, together with the crepes and waffle dessert. Despite being well-known for their crepes, La Creperie di Caroline has much to offer, especially when it comes to French cuisines.
