''Flying Langford to KL'' @ BEAST by BIG ,The Intermark.

Earlier this week I was invited to BEAST for a special dinner hosted by The Big Group as they flew their head chef from Langford, UK to KL.

If you read my previous post, I am sure you'll fall in love with BEAST before setting foot in their restaurant (read my previous post here ).





Before I proceed with what I had, let me just roughly introduce what is Langford Fivehead.

Langford Fivehead is like a boutique hotel in a bungalow form, surrounded by lush greenery, tucked in Somerset, England. 
This 'restaurant with room' is managed by Olly, the head chef and his wife, Rebecca Jackson. Langford Fivehead hosts an elegant drawing room for evening drinks, a beautiful garden for games and picnics, and 6 unique bedrooms where you can relax in total tranquillity.
(More details about Langford at the end of this post)

Some what like a bed and breakfast kind of concept but with a personal chef to cook you dinner/breakfast. 


I've always felt honoured to be their guest as The Big Group never skimp on food (good food/wine I mean). All guests were offered a glass of sparkling champagne prior to our dinner.



To Start, we had Shells from The Sea.

A light, fluffy crab & scallop mousse 
sandwiched between thin layers of handmade pasta,
topped with chive beurre blanc.

Cloudy Bay, Sauvignon Blanc 2014


That's a damn good seafood mousse to white butter sauce ratio.

The Scallop & Crab Meat sandwiching a thin layer pasta
reminds me of a hamburger, in a reverse manner. 
 The flavours itself was divine, light and saporific; 
It taste like ocean, if I were to describe this dish in a metaphoric way; I was rather disappointed when I finished my portion so quickly.




I carefully dissected this heavenly morsel just so I can photograph it and let you guys have a glimpse of ocean. *evil laugh*



To Follow
British Creedy Carver Duck
confit duck leg & Pan roasted breast
accompanied by celeriac puree,
curly kale & asparagus.

These blushing duck were wonderfully cooked, every bite of the morsel was juicy and flavourful .
As you can see, the plate was beautifully constructed with textures, colours, and flavours. I absolutely love the the deep fried cheddar cheese ball. 


Almost forget to mention that extremely crunchy duck skin sitting atop of the confit duck leg was
lip-smacking good too!
Who cares about diet? 
DIET, IS FOR THE WEAK. 


Beastiality
Rolled cannon of sirloin & slow cooked beef cheek,
served with sides of onions, curly kale, pomme dauphine
Leeuwin Estate, Art Series , Shiraz 2011

Not everyone on the long table shared the same main course, my dining partner beside me got the sirloin and she was kind enough to offer me some of them.
It was a pretty big dish with thick, generous chunk of sirloin in addition to the beef cheek.


The beef cheek was marvellous. It literally melt in the mouth; 

both of us made a good effort to finish our mains because I believe that we were psychologically programmed that this meal was from the UK. 



To Finish
Choc' N Salt
Rich dark chocolate fondant served with salted caramel ice cream
Dr.Loosen, Spätlese Ürziger Würzgarten, Riesling 2013



This is Molten Lava Cake at its finest! 

The anticipation of cutting the Chocolate lava cake and merrily enjoy the sight as the volcanic chocolate flows out from the centre is the main point of having this dessert.




While the chocolate lava cake had the right blend of bittersweet goodness, the salty caramel ice cream were definitely the star.

We really had pretty much cleaned the dish in the end. 
 Hehe. An always telling sight, I think.



BEAST is a modern and fashion-forward restaurant and has a relaxing, cosy atmosphere. 

If you are looking for a place to chill/celebrate any special occasion, this will no doubt be the place that I will recommend. 
While service can get a little slow when it’s a full house, the wait staff are attentive and the food more than makes up for the wait, I promise.
