Up & Above European Cuisine

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

another fine dining restaurant serving european cuisine is opened since March! up and 
above is located at Cantonment Road, just opposite the post office. was in love with the
super cute exterior, a mural of a little girl looking at the Eiffel Tower from the window!

as for the interior, nothing fancy but very clean and comfortable spacing between table and 
table, more dining space upstairs would be nice for private functions or birthday party venue!

homemade bread and truffle butter was served while we were waiting for our first dish!
was told that everything here was made from scratch, made fresh daily and the young and 
talented chef - Thomas, puts all his heart and soul into all the dishes!

Mushroom soup // RM17

Roasted tomato bacon soup // RM16
they were both great as a starter! mushroom soup was very comforting, rich with a very 
smooth texture. as for the tomato bacon soup it was very appetizing, perfectly tasted with 
the aroma of bacon, yums! 

Smoked duck salad // RM25

Prawn and prosciutto ham salad // RM33
my favourite goes to smoked duck salad - refreshing greens served with a thick cut of duck 
breast and it was perfectly smoked! 

Braised pork cheek with red wine // RM38
served with mashed potato, charred onion and asparagus, the pork cheek itself was surprisingly
soft and tender after hours of braising with red wine!

Lobster ravioli in crab bisque // RM65
those lobster-filled ravioli served in the rich and delightful crab bisque, perfect combination
from the ocean! charred onion brings another different texture for the dish.

Roast new zealand lamb saddle of loin // RM98
served with ratatouille, potato, green pea puree and lamb jus! a super cute presentation
like cylinder blocks and square blocks hehehe. the lamb was yum, have it with
ratatouille and it was flavorsome!

Braised australian beef brisket // RM68
one of my favourite main - braised australian beef brisket with butternut puree, french bean,
onion chip and confit tomato on vine. beef brisket was perfectly cook, tender and tasteful,
serve on a bed of mellow butternut puree.

Sous vide flavorful herb chicken // RM30 
two pieces of perfectly cooked sous vide chicken thigh, very tender and juicy!
beautifully presented with mashed potato, mushroom and baby carrot.

Seared artisanal smoked salmon // RM58
smoked salmon presented in a very interesting way, was served in a glass cover full of smoke!
the smoked salmon was paired with vanila cream foam and a very strong smokey aroma lingers
around it, a delicious and eye-catching dish, love it!

Raspberry mousse cake // RM28

Tarte tatin // RM18

Creme Brulee (vanila or orange) // RM12 each
and for the desserts, raspberry mousse cake is my favourite! it was sweet and sour with the
smooth and mellow texture, layers of pink looks super appealing! tarte tatin was actually
apple tart with a very rich cinnamon flavour, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream which
was perfectly matched! and for creme brulee, if you want something more fruity you can opt
for orange creme brulee!
