Gourmet Wagyu Burger with Foie Gras - BEST in KL ;)
Last week, I took one of my best friends, Steph to DISH KL for lunch to celebrate her birthday. Chef Steve came out to see us when we arrived and since I had already tried their current set lunch menu (same menu as previous week at time of visit) he asked if it was okay if he served some of his new creations (mostly not yet on the menu) for me to sample. Oh, YES PLEASE!
Instead of the eggplant fritters, we were served the complimentary bread with some sweet potato croquettes with Parmesan and turkey ham.
This is on the current a la carte menu but it was my first time trying it. The pumpkin soup with Parmesan, mushrooms and truffle oil (RM22) was rich and creamy. The meaty shitake mushrooms and croutons gave the dish a little texture. A great tasting soup!
The next dish served to me was scallops! Yay my favorite :) This may be a new addition to the a la carte menu, pan seared scallops with grilled balsamic watermelon and shitake mushrooms. The watermelon goes very well with the scallops. And why does grilled fruits always taste nicer?
Everytime we visit, it's great to know that Chef Steve uses lots of local produce here at DISH. I think people should lose the preconception that local is inferior and instead look at it as sustainable food/cooking. I loved the red emperor fish ceviche served with pink guava (jambu air, a local fruit) and horseradish granita. The red emperor (part of the snapper family) is a local fish and was undeniably fresh.
Am not sure if it's a coincidence, but both scallops and foie gras in the same meal is VERY IDEAL for me ;P When the wagyu burger with foie gras was served, my jaw almost dropped when I saw the size of the foie gras. Maybe I should call it foie gras with wagyu burger on the side. Hehe. This has got to be the juiciest, most delicious burger I've ever eaten. The patty was moist and the luscious foie completed it. This may also be put on the a la carte menu, and I keep telling Chef Steve that he has got to! Everyone that I've shown the photo of the burger to has commented how gorgeous it looks! (Note: The wagyu burger has now been added to the a la carte menu - available for RM89)
Phwoarrrr check out the foieeeee!

For dessert, I picked the cold chocolate fondant with poached mango and pineapple and yogurt sorbet (RM21). Rich, smooth and fabulous.
My friend had items off the set lunch - she picked the roasted quail, steak and green guava crumble. You can read more about it here.
Roasted quail with potato salad, mustard mayonnaise
Chargrilled grass fed striploin, mushroom duxelle, spring onion and potato puree
Green guava crumble, caramel ice cream
Verdict: Did I like all the off-menu dishes that Chef Steve prepared for me? OH YES I did! I still can't get the wagyu burger with foie gras out of my head ;P
