We were excited to be one of the first few to check out the town's latest boutique hotel and invited to dine at their F&B outlet - Brasserie 25, a casual French dining restaurant serving fine French cuisine without the frills.

Brasserie 25 exudes a rustic charm. With its red brick arcades, mid-century copper sputnik chandeliers and dark wood floors, this French-style restaurant located on level 1 provide a dramatic yet relaxed vibe.

The cuisine is laid back but bursting with flavour. Perfect for lunches and informal dinners, the dishes are inspired by fresh, locally produced ingredients.

Keep an eye on the open kitchen if you want to catch a glimpse of the chef, hard at work as he puts the finishing touches on his plates.

The perfect blend of traditional and modern, Brasserie 25 draws inspiration from STRIPES’ sister hotel, MUSE ST Tropez and even offers le goûter, afternoon tea with a French twist.

The restaurant serves a wide range of cocktails, red and white wines, coffee, tea and fresh juices for its patrons to choose while dining. I don't drink, so naturally, my choice of drink before a meal is of course to first have a nutritious freshly squeezed orange and carrot juice on an empty stomach.

We kick start our French dining with dishes from their Entrees Froides menu. For the first entree, we choose the Salade Nicoise ~ Consisting of mesclun salad, tuna flakes, anchovies, black olives, hard-boiled egg served together with the green bean and bell pepper for the crunchy bite to get us into the mood for some delicious French fare.

Then, my hubby being a fan of escargots ordered the Baked Burgundy Escargots, which was served with garlic herb butter. These delicacies commonly associated with French cuisine, the Burgundy snails are an iconic dish of Burgundy and French gastronomy. 

Bouillabaisse RM 50

Traditional Provencal Fish Soup
RM 50

Moving on, the Bouillabaisse, a classic French seafood soup. Once a cheap meal for hungry French fishermen, now it’s considered a feast fit for a king. Loved the flavours - very robust and immensely likeable as we scoop up the last spoon of the thick fish broth. 

Camembert Roti Au Four RM 40

Baked Camembert, Black Truffle, French Toast Chips

RM 40


The plate of creamy and rich whole baked Camembert drizzled with fragrant truffle oil and French baguette toasts was an excellent choice. The fine truffle oil imparts the flavour and aroma of truffles to the dish. One whiff and the seductive smell sends me to heaven. 😋😋😋

Up next for the mains tasting was the perfectly chargrilled grain-fed Angus Rib-Eye steak. Each portion served comes with french fries and sauteed mushrooms. Juicy and tender, it went wonderfully well with the addictive brandy cream sauce, truly a perfect combination of texture and flavour.

This is my first time tasting Braised Beef Cheek In Red Wine and I do not know what to expect. These beef cheeks are braised for long hours resulting in meltingly tender, with a rich, deep flavour. The sauce is equally delicious makes for a comfort food quality with perfect melt-in-your-mouth sensation. 

Joue De Boeuf Braisee Braised Beef Cheek In Red Wine, Carrot, Mushroom, Pearl Onion, Mashed Potato RM 120
Served together with the mashed potato and lots of mushrooms, the serving portion is quite sizable which is good for sharing if you are a small eater. The mash fills me up easily and I shared the beef cheeks with my the other half.

The meal ends with two sweets. The first is the Grand Marnier Souffle With Vanilla Ice Cream with a waiting time 20 minutes or more, depending on the dining crowd. I find the souffle too sweet for my liking and the texture is just acceptable, nothing special.     

 Crepes Suzettes RM 30

Then there is the  Crepes Suzettes, it's fare far much better than the souffle. The crepes are just of the right thickness, soft and nice and the orange sauce was thick and rich in flavour.
