An Afternoon Tea à la Française at Chez Leoniel, Alliance Française Kuala Lumpur

Hi-tea gets better when you are with your group of friends and I chose to spend my day with Meena of course. We rarely met though we both were working in the heart of KL and now it is too late to get back those moments as she has already graduated.

Since I wanted to spend a good time with her before she leaves, I chose to have Hi tea where it has varieties and we can really spend a long time savouring each and every pastry.

The choices in Chez Lionel was good and I like how they are based on pastries and not cakes. Also, I was dying to try out French Pastries so Chez Lionel it is.

The customer service was good as I was rather picky and demanding a little since I brought Meena there so I made sure everything is perfect so the day will not be ruined.

The interior was pretty decent and I really liked the wall at the back which looks like it was decorated specifically for Instagram.

Chez Leoniel at the Alliance Française Kuala Lumpur elevates your senses to an Afternoon Tea à la Française. “Talk about pastries” to have degustation and know how French Pastries should really feel on your palate.

The hi-tea set changes weekly, and it will feature any of the following Croissant, Pain Au Chocolat, Fruit Panier, Croissant Sandwich, Tart Aux Fraises, Tart Au Citron, Tart Au Chocolat, Assorted flavoured Macaroons, Fruit Cakes, Sandwiches, Madeline, Financiers and much more.

The set comes with 12 pieces pastries handpicked by the Chef according to product availability and a pot of Tea/coffee for only RM75.

Besides serving afternoon teas and pastries, guest can also try other French dishes such as Croque Monsieur - A croque monsieur is traditionally made with boiled ham between slices of brioche-like pain de mie topped with grated cheese and slightly salted and peppered, which is baked in an oven or fried in a frying pan. The dish can also be made with normal butter bread, with a soft crust. A simple, cheap version uses square toast. Instead of the buttered bread, the bread may optionally be browned by grilling before being dipped in beaten egg. Traditionally, Emmental or Gruyère is used, or sometimes Comté cheese as well. Some brasseries also add Béchamel sauce.

Gratin dauphinoise -Gratin dauphinoise is a traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraîche, from the historic Dauphiné region in southeast France. There are many variants of the name of the dish, including Pommes de Terre dauphinoise, potatoes à la dauphinoise and gratin de Pommes à la dauphinoise.
