U.S. Potato Culinary Festival Menu @ Brasserie Fritz, WOLO Bukit Bintang, KL

If you don't hang around the city centre often enough, you probably would've missed this modern bakery cum restaurant and bar called Brasserie Fritz, located on the intersection of the city's busiest streets in Bukit Bintang.

The reason we are here at this beautiful Parisian-themed space is to try out the exclusive menu in conjunction to the annual U.S. Potato Culinary Festival.

This year, U.S. Potato Board collaborates with 14 restaurants in Klang Valley to serve an exclusive limited-time menu featuring U.S. fresh and frozen potatoes. Do you know that U.S. potatoes yield only 110 calories per serving? Not only that, it is rich in potassium (more than banana!), Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. It is also free from fat, sodium and cholesterol.

The interior of Brasserie Fritz just mutes my senses as soon as I step into this elegant space.

Open as early as 8am, Brasserie Fritz kickstarts the day with an Australian-style hearty breakfast menu. Throughout the day, it welcomes patrons with a delicious menu that fuses traditional French cuisine with global influences, and a 6-seater seafood counter where you can indulge in the fresh air-flown Japanese ingredients prepared using European cooking techniques.

As the sun sets, the two cocktail bars in the restaurant come alive
as patrons get their boozes and chill by the bar till late.

That's the creation of the masterminds behind Troika Sky Dining who made their names in bringing us Kuala Lumpur's best restaurants and bars, such as Fuego, Strato, Cantaloupe, and Mr. Chew’s Chino Latino Bar.

Brasserie Fritz has never compromised on the quality of ingredients used to prepare all the dishes, condiments, fresh bakes and desserts from scratch. Particularly on the potatoes, it uses only the premium U.S. potatoes.

In conjunction to the culinary festival, Brasserie Fritz's innovative take on U.S. russet potatoes is shown in the two dishes: Patata Bravas and Duck Confit.

Patata Bravas - U.S. Crispy potatoes, Jerusalem artichoke puree, shaved parmesan, chives, ground coffee

As soon as our appetizer is served onto the table, we are overwhelmed by the delicious whiffs of the crisp deep-fried U.S. russet potatoes with hints of cheesy goodness. Each of the potato bites yield an extremely crisp texture on the outside, and creamy soft on the inside. 

While the generous topping of shaved parmesan cheese enhances the flavours, we are surprised to taste a hint of coffee flavour of the artichoke puree base. A truly intriguing appetizer to kickstart our sumptuous dinner. Definitely great for communal sharing and pairing with boozes. 

Duck Confit - Duck leg, U.S. mashed potato cake, mustard sauce

For the mains, we have the French famous duck confit. While we appreciate the tender and succulent meat of the duck, we are a tad overwhelmed by the saltiness. But it is married perfectly well with the U.S. russet potato mash that balances out the flavours. 

Look at the beautiful presentation of the potato mash --
it is, again, crisp on top and bottom, with creamy soft mash in the middle.
