Mother's Day Treat @ DISH, Dua Annexe KL

For my first Mother's Day treat this year, Hubby took me to DISH for their set lunch. This was a day before we went on our Singapore trip. A girl loves to be pampered, even when she's already a mother.. agree? ;)

We love visiting DISH on a Friday as it is relatively quiet and it feels like we get the whole restaurant to ourselves. 

Complimentary bread

Eggplant fritters - my fav, give me this over bread anytime!

Just before we tucked into our starters, I got a special lesson on "how to make gnocchi" from Chef Steve Allen. He showed me how it is made since I'm a noob  clueless when it comes to making any sort of pasta (well, except the tortellini ;)) Special thanks to Chef Steve for showing me, now I can try to attempt it at home too... and when I'm successful, I will post the recipe on the blog.

Back to our starters, Hubby had the baked gnocchi with brie and tomato salad. The gnocchi had a nice texture. I had the Braised mushrooms and asparagus with fried egg on brioche - it has all of my favorite ingredients and has been executed very well. We also got to try the white onion soup, with sambal cod fritters - the soup was creamy and the sambal was a very nice addition to the fritters, slightly sweet with a tinge of spiciness.

For mains, I chose the chargrilled grass fed rib eye served with sweetcorn and anchovies, sweet potato croquettes and chilli sauce charon.  The rib eye was slightly thicker than the striploin that we had here the previous week and was also a much more flavorful cut. I like!

Medium rare!

Sweet potato croquette - nice

Hubby would usually order the steak too, but he decided to try something different. He had the roasted chicken with oregano, confit chicken with parmesan crumble and vegetables. Though the chicken was moist, I think he was still secretly eyeing my steak ;P (I did share!)

You shoot me, I shoot you..

Desserts here are always delightful. I enjoyed my pain perdu with mangosteen puree and granita and mascarpone-lemon ice cream - sweet and tangy. (Pain perdu is French toast, and literally translates to "lost bread" in French).  But Hubby's green guava tart tatin with lime ice cream stole the limelight, it was absolutely delicious - wonderfully crumbly pastry.

I enjoyed my Mother's Day treat at DISH, thanks Hubby. Will be going back to DISH soon for the fourth time :)

  1. Yes, I agree with you! Girls love to be pampered. =) Btw, thats a big piece of steak!

    1. One thing I find about DISH is that portions are very generous. It's a huge contrast with Sage, I go to Sage and I feel hungry by 3pm but if I have the set lunch at DISH, I can stay full til 10pm!

  2. Not fair! Ur steak's thicker than mine :(

    U r correct...the roasted chicken is plated totally different from ours :X

    Happy belated Mother's Day! =)

    1. Haha, I guess the chef likes me better! Just kidding la...

      It's quite a nice hefty portion for set lunch. And thanks for the Mother's Day wishes. :) Got more blogposts to come about my MD's treats :P

    2. Ooo...looking forward to them :)

      So whose photos are better or is it a draw? :P

    3. Haha draw la! (next time need to find a judge la..)

  3. Sighhh we've only been there once, and you're making us long for another trip there! You really enjoy the eggplant fritters over the bread? It's a tough choice, but I shall agree to disagree with you on that. =D

    1. Usually I only eat a lot of bread at places like Sage, when I know the food portions are small and I need bread to fill me up. At DISH, the portions are very generous, hence I never find the need to eat too much bread (I always just have a slice) and the eggplant fritters seem like a better snack than bread.

    2. And btw we may be going back again for the next menu change :P

  4. Whoa, the steak looks big! Baby Sumo, I wanted to ask you for a very long time... how do you keep your body in shape while you eat so much? T.T

    1. I like my steaks big, juicy and tender... :)

      To answer your question, chasing after my kids! :P Hehehehehe.

  5. i wanna have that egg asparagus mushroom thingy so bad now!

  6. That pain perdu with mangosteen puree and granita looks good, I love mangosteen, would like to try that next time!

    1. The pain perdu was yummy, sweet and crisp and the mangosteen was slightly tart, so sweet and sour :)

  7. Mangosteen pure! I'd visit for that alone. :-)

  8. ooo, the fried egg looks perfect. i had a fried egg at another cafe this week, and it was flat and not runny enough there :D i wonder why dish is quiet on fridays. i thought that's the day when lots of folks schedule long, indulgent lunches, heh :D oops, and no, i still haven't had the mangosteen dessert here yet! argh! i keep having my meals away from the city center this week :D

    1. Eggs may seem like the simplest thing to cook/make, but to make the perfect egg, it's not that easy.

      We can't figure out why they're so quiet on Fridays as well, we also guessed that they would be busy seeing lots of people have long lunch hours.

  9. finally, somebody used mangosteen!!!

    1. I hope they put something "mangosteen" on the a la carte desserts soon, then u can try it when you come back!

  10. There were so much of food on the table, this must be one of the best restaurants in KL?

    1. Yes, one of the best. We always order 3-courses each, plus some complimentary items from the chef.. equals a lot of good food :)

  11. Craig and you are creatures of habit but I don't blame you guys. You really know how to pick restaurants with good food. When are you taking me to the Dish?

    1. Please come with us when you're back in KL :)

  12. Gosh..its seriously good and I have yet to pop over when its so near my office. Such a shame:-(

  13. hehe.. you are the same with me, I also a steak girl!! I have to try this place soon.. the food here looked awesome from your several posts... =)

  24. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
    numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another
    platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Look into my blog: Michael Kors

  25. At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform
    out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
