We recently visited Brasserie Léon in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, which was formerly known as Cocott. Now we’ve visited Cocott previously and it has been one of the mainstay premium dining establishments in TTDI. However, with changing times and trends, businesses must be agile enough to adapt to thrive and that’s exactly what Cocott did, changing from a more premium bistro restaurant concept to a more accessible brasserie style cafe. As someone who loves French food (and cars), I headed over to Brasserie Léon to try their new concept, together with a partner in crime who has not really tried French dining before.
Retaining Cocott’s elegant setting, Brasserie Léon is a more casual cafe that celebrates the Classic French Steak & Fries served with a secret signature sauce, which is considered a favourite and almost considered national dish in France. Other French’s favourites such as Roasted Chicken, Melted Raclette Cheese, together with a handful of appetisers and desserts complete the menu.
Parking is a breeze as there’s ample and cheap parking in the Greens Terrace complex which houses Brasserie Léon. You could also park in the legal parking bays by the roadside but for safety reasons, I fully recommend parking in the basement carpark which has guards patrolling. Then take the lift (or even better still – WALK!) up two (2) storeys to the restaurant.
My favourites of the night would have to be the deep fried Brie, the escargots and the steak. Well executed and delicious and doesn’t burn a huge hole in your pocket! I’m hoping Brasserie Léon will bring back it’s weekend French brunch again soon because it’s something that’s really missing in the city. Brasserie Léon is certainly not a fine dining restaurant, but has its own charms and is suitable for a casual date night, or even family gatherings!
