For those of you unfamiliar with Franco, it is actually a French-Japanese Artisan Cafe focusing on fine casual dining.
So after a long time of not stepping into The Curve, we headed over there and immediately made a beeline to Franco!
Just a heads-up to y’all, we’re all meat-lovers here. So, please excuse our carnivorous cravings :3
Franco's new menu consists of Tenderloin Steak, Sirloin Steak and T-bone Steak.
Unfortunately, the T-bone steak was not available on that day, hence we couldn’t give you a review on it. However! What we can tell you is that the sides are basically the same, and there were a selection of sauces that you can opt for such as BBQ, black pepper, mushroom and etc for all steaks.
First up, we tried the Tenderloin Steak (RM55.90). When one doesn’t like their meat too raw, but still want it to be tender enough, then medium-cooked it is! It looked so mouth-watering and well-presented, especially with a perfect sunny side egg stacked on top. The dish was also served with a few slices of beef bacon, rocket salad and mushroom sauce to complement the steak.
Though the meat wasn’t as tender as we hoped, nonetheless, the complexity of flavours from the meat, the egg, and the salad tied everything together very nicely.
Next came our Sirloin Steak (RM48.90). The dish also came with mouth-watering sides - a quarter of grilled corn, a large baked potato with sour cream and an assorted salad that consisted of cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and sweet pea sprout. We’ve chose BBQ sauce to go along with this dish, just to try something different for a change.
The steak was served in a very special way, it was hung off a fancy contraption for diners to assess before heartily consuming it. We thought it was a nice touch and definitely something that you don’t get to see in other places! The steak was grilled to perfection where it was slightly crusted on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. (It was definitely easier to chew compared to the tenderloin).
And finally, we ordered Franco's very famous dessert, Molten Dark Chocolate (RM16.90).
The exquisite souffle lived up to its fame. It was light, bouncy, warm, chocolatey and most importantly, melted perfectly in our mouths.
It’s not part of the new menu, but it's almost a cardinal rule these days - a meal isn't complete without desserts!
Would we go back again? YES, DEFINITELY. Check out the link below for more details on Franco's NEW steak menu!
