“A bakery, restaurant and a wine bar combo, Yeast Bistronomy is a quaint, French-themed eatery by restaurateur Christophe Chatron-Michaud and his Malaysian wife, Lissan Teh. Its dine-in menu focuses on French cuisine given Asian touches, like grilled bamboo king prawn with saffron risotto and seared Hokkaido scallop. Also good is mesclun lardons (egg salad) and their quiche Lorraine. At the bakery, madeleines and macaroons are great, but the astonishingly soft and flavoursome artisan French breads, ranging from its bestseller almond croissant to the rare smoked duck cheese puff has christened this our all-time favourite tea-time haunt in KL. ”
