We recently headed over to Cocott’ in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur one sunny Sunday afternoon to try their new weekend French brunch menu! Cocott’ has been in operation in the swanky neighbourhood of Taman Tun Dr. Ismail for some years now, and derives its name from the French word cocotte /kô’kôt/ – which a pot in which food can be both cooked and served. It is often made of cast-iron, and first originated from the Netherlands in the 17th century as the English name (Dutch oven) indicates it.
Cocottes are widely used in France and associated to hearty food as they are particularly well suited for long, slow cooking, like roasts, stews, and casseroles, linking it to traditional dishes such as beef bourguignon, pot-au-feu and roast chicken.
As such, the restaurant uses cocottes to prepare their dishes using French cooking tradition, and also serves certain dishes in them as sharing platters. The restaurant focuses on a generous style of cooking, emphasising on quality and pleasure, and sharing among diners – no haughty fine dining here, only pleasant and warm conversations over good food!
The weekend French brunch menu is only available on Saturdays and Sundays and on public holidays from 11.00am to 3.00pm.
You have two (2) options to select from:
Option A = 1 DRINK +1 MAIN or l MAIN +1 DESSERT for RM35.00++
Option B = 1 DRINK +1 MAIN +1 DESSERT for RM41.00++
All the sets come with a baker basket consisting of homemade brioche, croissant and pain au chocolat, served with homemade watermelon and orange jam and whipped butter.
For drinks, there’s a wide variety of coffee, tea or juice:
Coffee – espresso, doppio, macchiato, long black, latte, flat white, cappuccino
Tea or Infusion – earl grey, Sencha, amours, mint/basil/ginger infusion
Juice – orange, mango & pineapple, passion fruit & pineapple
Now let’s have a look at the mains.
Smoked Duck Salad
marinated watermelon, lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomato
A very refreshing salad due to the juicy watermelon, balanced with the earthy, gamey flavours of the smoked duck! A good choice for a hot and sunny day and if you’re not a heavy eater.
Cordon Bleu (170gm)
breaded chicken with cheese & beef bacon, fries & salad
This main was definitely more filling and very hearty with the classic chicken Cordon Bleu served with fries and a side salad.
Eggs Benedict Royale
poached eggs, Hollandaise sauce, (add on smoked salmon for RM7.00)
A pair of beautifully poached eggs topped with a creamy Hollandaise sauce. Classic breakfast dish that’s perfectly executed with runny yolks and all. I recommend that you add-on the smoked salmon as it adds on lots of savoury flavours to enhance this main.
grilled cheese & smoked duck sandwich, fries and salad
Now this main was perfect for a big eater like myself! A large open top grilled sandwich smothered with melted cheese with smoked duck, a generous serving of fries and a side salad! Believe me – if you order this main, and actually manage to finish the baker basket, you’ll be full until dinner!
Deep-Fried Brie Cheese
served with a side salad (add on onion relish for RM7.00)
If you love cheese (like me!) you’ll love this deep-fried Brie which is really decadent but so delicious! The onion relish is a perfect accompaniment for it, imparting sweet onion flavours to balance out the creaminess of the cheese (so that it doesn’t get cloyingly rich). I do recommend that you share this main though. In fact, all the mains are great for sharing so go ahead and order different ones!
French Rustic Omelet
sautéed mushrooms, confit shallots, cheese
A lovely fluffy omelet that’s stuffed full of mushroom, shallots and cheese! Doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you cut into it you’ll be amazed by the filling! Like the fried Brie (above) I do recommend that you share this one as well!
Handmade Chicken Sausage
sautéed potatoes, onion relish (+RM7)
Oh this was perfect for a meat eater like myself! Juicy chicken sausages with potatoes and salad on the side. Very filling! I recommend adding on the onion relish (for an additional RM7.00) as it will lend its sweet onion flavours to complement this dish! Alternatively, you could also enjoy it with the French mustard that serves along with the main.
vanilla & cinnamon flavoured brioche, maple syrup, Chantilly cream
This is a really Insta-friendly main which is more like a dessert to me. The brioche was flavoured with vanilla and cinnamon making this a very luxurious French toast indeed! The addition of real Chantilly cream in place of ice cream or butter was a welcome surprise! Joanne liked this one!
For those who just can’t live without desserts, you can opt to have them with your brunch.
Chocolate Mousse – 70% dark chocolate (bottom) – rich and luxurious! Great if you like dark chocolate!
Tiramisu Verrine – homemade coffee genoise (top) – a deconstructed tiramisu that’s pretty rich from the cream but well-balanced with the coffee sponge!
Homemade Ice Cream Selection – two scoops (not in photo) – for those who like ice cream! The homemade sorbet is a very refreshing option!
Truth be told, I really liked this new French brunch at Cocott’ and will be returning again soon! It’s pretty good value for money, and the quality of the food is great! The environment too is casual but not noisy, and most importantly – conducive for quality time with your friends and family.
