Le Périgord

Special thanks to Le Périgord for extending this food review invitation.

Le Périgord is a French restaurant along Burmah Road (Jalan Burma). The eatery is named after a former province of France, which is renowned for its truffles, wines and foie gras.
Although Le Périgord presents a semi-fine dining atmosphere, the restaurant also suitable for family dining. Red brick walls that surround the dining hall gives the place a rather rustic appearance.
Le Périgord primarily serves classic French cuisine. Each dish is meticulously crafted with an element of human touch. This is why the kitchen refuses to dabble in modern cooking techniques in the likes of sous-vide.
Kurobuta Steak (RM58.00) is perhaps the most impressive dish during this visit. The pork chop uses Black Berkshire pig, a special breed of swine prized for its tender flesh. The combination of lean and fatty flesh makes the pork succulent indeed. This exquisite dish is served with mango sauce, caramelized apples, mashed potatoes and assorted vegetables.
The next dish is Le Périgord Signature Lamb Rack (RM88.00). The frenched lamb ribs are flavored with red wine sauce and lamb jus. Served alongside is a mouthwatering piece of portobello mushroom. Also included are mashed potatoes infused with truffle oil.
Duck Confit (RM78.00), also known as "confit de canard", is considered one of the finest dishes in French cuisine. Dry-aged duck thigh is poached in its own fat for several hours until the flesh becomes meltingly tender. The delicacy is then flavored with a special concoction of orange sauce. Vegetables and oven roasted potatoes are provided on the side.
Pasta lovers with an affinity for spiciness may consider having the Seafood Aglio-Olio (RM35.00). Sautéed in olive oil, al dente spaghetti is seasoned with garlic and chili flakes. This simple yet satisfying pasta dish comes with green-lipped mussels, shrimps and clams.
Chicken & Mushroom Linguine (RM35.00) is another recommended choice. Unlike the previous dish, the pasta is served with a creamy sauce made from fresh cream. Contributing to savoriness are bite-size chicken breast and portobello mushrooms.
Besides serving walk-in customers, Le Périgord can also cater for private events such as birthday parties. Covering the area of two shops, the place can easily accommodate more than 100 people at a time. From time to time, Le Périgord also conducts cooking classes to share culinary secrets with the public.
