Before you say I Do at Ma Maison, Ampang

We gather here today to wish you well. And to be well, you need to eat well. No scrimping on the things that matter most to a bride-to-be - joy and liberation from loving, being loved and entering into a life-long contract of uhh.... bondage and protective custody? We kid, we kid. We love people in love and we love weddings!

Ma Maison offers a RM30 nett meal of a myriad of emancipation from stuffy and restrictive diets and starters. There is plenty ot chew on, from garlic toast to toast with caramelised onions & cheese and egg mayo concoction, salad involving eggplant, pasta and beansprouts and potatoes. We were well sated on the homely fare before the main courses made it to the table.

We ponder in silence upon a totally pretty yet pedestrian visual arrest of the City of Love.



The appetizer buffet also featured the very veritable duck offering here. The standard of procedure is, on days they serve their infamous duck in orange sauce, they grill the remaining parts of the duck. It's a bit tough and I felt it was too gamey to the tongue.


The Duck in Orange Sauce is perhaps the most fitting ode to the marriage vow - obliging and hope-inducing. The sauce is robust enough to pare down the fowl gusto of the duck. Most satisfying, as I am sure the parties of the impending union would concur of each other.


The other main course on offer, Perch in Butter Sauce didn't fare quite as well. The meal owner felt that while the flesh was firm and fresh, the sauce was a too heavy on the cream and didn't do it justice. Hmm... mayhaps a conundrum for marital discourse?
And on that note, all the best to Li Ann and Benji!

duck and fish ... here's my awkwardly constructed wish to the couple: may sadness always be slow to waddle toward you, but may your life together go swimmingly until death do you part =)

Yoga Tramp, thanks for dropping by!

Joe, bargain maximus!! I really hope they keep this up!

TNG, why would you do a thing like that? I insist you eat with carefree abandon!

Sean, aww that's the most romantic use of the word "waddle", hands down!!

minchow said...

LL, wonder if the menu's different for dinner? I am planning to go back soon for ala carte. With a bottle of wine! We had to be alcohol-free that lunch, and that's just so wrong!

Food Paradise, even by Penang standards right?? This place is a gem!

Pureglutton, hope you've cheered up a wee bit about the phone!! Don't worry, better things will come your way soon I'm sure!

Marriage is made in heaven and so is food. Both satisfying and blissful.

minchow said...

Ciki, yup yup! See you there!! :-)

Worldwindows, marriage as good as food?? It has such a bad rep! In that case, I can't wait for it! :-P
