We have been quite busy, with the kids and also work, so we have not been to DISH for a bit. This week, we finally found some time to visit my favorite lunch spot in KL.
It's such a nice and peaceful place to spend a quiet lunch with Hubby. Plus they have some new items on their a la carte menu as well as set lunch, which Chef Steve made for us to try.
We started off with the seared and marinated tuna, pickled radish, and crispy quail eggs (RM42), served to us canapé-style. It's nice that we could pop the whole thing in our mouth and let the flavours works its magic. The tuna was fresh and just lightly seared. Along with the tuna, we also tried the cheese and mushroom croquette. Cheesy, gooey goodness! A nice way to start our meal.
Great combination of flavours!
The pea soup with truffle brioche (RM22) is a new addition to the a la carte menu. It is no secret that I love the brioche at DISH. Topped with lots of black truffle, it was heavenly! The pea soup was simple, light but very delicious.
Spiced jackfruit - sweet, with a nice crunchy texture.
Luscious foie gras and duck terrine
We then tried a starter off the current set lunch menu - the avocado tempura with crab mayonnaise and apple dressing. I've eaten a similar dish during their weekend tapas brunch. The avocado tempura was crispy on the outside (very light batter) and creamy on the inside. Hot tempura and cold crabmeat - it was a nice contrast. Loved it!
Thin slices of apple to complement the dish
Our mains was something Chef Steve put together for us - a combination of grilled rib eye steak plus braised Wagyu beef cheek. Since the last two visits, we have noticed that their steaks are getting better (nice charred exterior) since getting in a new grill. The braised Wagyu cheek was also lovely, very tender. This was served with horseradish mashed potatoes and fricassee of mushrooms. Hubby really loved this and declared it his favorite dish of the day.
Perfectly cooked steak!
For desserts, we tried two new items - the passion fruit creme brulee on hazelnut shortbread, served with a bitter chocolate ice cream off the set lunch menu and the pandan and coconut panna cotta with poached rambutan and lemon confit off their dessert menu. I enjoyed the latter more and Hubby liked the creme brulee more, so it was a win-win situation for us! The panna cotta definitely had the Asian touch, with the use of pandan, coconut and rambutans. It was a light dessert, just perfect after the 4-courses we have just had.
