Janet and I headed over to 2OX one fine evening for a preview of their upcoming MIGF menu. 2OX is pronounced as “two ox” in reference to two (2) oxen which are also referred to as bullocks in certain countries (hence the name bullock carts). The establishment has a bistro concept and is takes up two (2) lots along the newly redeveloped The Row KL (formerly Asian Heritage Row) along Jalan Doraisamy (next to Sheraton Imperial KL Hotel) in downtown Kuala Lumpur.

The outside of the bistro is an al fresco dining area for those who like “fresh air”.

Chef Lescouezec has only been in Kuala Lumpur for a couple of months, having spent the last 12 years in Seoul, South Korea heading up a number of French bistros there.. He intends to show to local diners that French isn’t all about haughty premium dining, but about comfort food, prepared with soul. His style of food combines traditional French fare with fresh new flavours, creating dishes that are delicious, well-balanced and pleasing to the eye which all brings about a fabulous dining experience for diners.
