D’cuisine enters into PJ Plaza 33 Office Towers with a stylish, thoughtfully designed interior, aiming to serve diners with a vast variety of Peranakan, Asian, Chinese and Western Fusion delicacies. D’Cuisine is presented by dgrouprestaurants, the establishment who also manages D’Italiane Kitchen at Jaya 33, and D’Viennoiserie Cafe next to D’Cuisine.
D’Cuisine is located beside Barn Thai, just directly below the escalator at ground floor. Other restaurants you can come across at this building includes Kampachi Japanese Restaurant, Noble Mansion, Barn Thai Restaurant & Bar, while further down at Jaya 33, Vintry, Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room are worth checking out.
Though titled as a restaurant which serves different types of cuisines, D’Cuisine menu, nevertheless, is easy to understand. Diners can expect familiar local favourites such as Fish Noodles, Fish Curry with Calrose Rice, Garoupa Fish Curry, Fresh River Prawn Braised Noodles (Sang Har Min) and Tom Yum Kung; as well as fusion platters which put together a wealth of ingredients across several regions to result in wonderful flavours , easily raise your interest to try them out. Mongolian Smoked Duck, Norwegian Salmon Curry Noodles, Prawns in Butter Cream Reduction, Tea Smoked Chicken Platter, Baked White Cod with XO Sauce, and Mustard & Herbs Crusted Baked Chicken.- their name speak for themselves.
Mongolian Smoked Duck RM18
Begin with D’cuisine Mongolian Smoked Duck, having generous pieces of smoked duck lined up over a bed of julienne cucumber, dressed with signature creamy Mongolian sauce. Tangy sweet throughout, with savoury smokiness from smoked duck further balanced out by fresh juiciness from vegetables. Great appetite opener.
Caramelized Orange Calamari RM18
Caramelized Orange Calamari is placed in D’cuisine appetizer section, but we found it more than suitable as a main course for sharing. Crispy, flavourful, caramelized with orange rind, this deep fried item is good to munch on its own, better by dousing the sticky sweet sauce deeply crossed with aroma from tangerine into a bowl of rice.
Norwegian Salmon Curry Noodles RM22
We are so used to fish curry, curry noodles, or pan-seared Norwegian Salmon, but no so often to combination of all – D’Cuisine special Norwegian Salmon Curry Noodles. Curry is Nyonya style, appears in alluring red hot colour, heavily loaded with coconut milk, spicy but tangled with faint hint of sweetness. Goes superb in Hong Kong yee mee noodles, as every strand gracefully soaked up with goodness of the curry gravy. Toppings such as beancurd, eggplant, lady fingers are genersous, and not to forget, huge chunks of Premium salmon fillet. Highly recommended.
Diners who wish to go meatless in D’cuisine can have a choice of vegetarian braised noodles. Deep fried, crispy thick noodles are immersed in gravy filled with mushrooms and vegetables. Hearty in portion, can shared between two if you were small eater.
D’Cuisine Peranakan Platter RM25
Can’t go wrong with one of the signature platters in D’cuisine, also a peranakan favourite. Enjoy marinated deep fried herb & spices infused chicken, asam prawns, vegetable and coconut rice all in one plate. Chicken is decently wrapped with juiciness, but a longer time of marination may result in more flavourful, delicious chicken.
Taiwan Three Cup Chicken Set RM26.80
For diners who prefer a more plentiful selections for their meal, D’cuisine set is ideal. Each set comes with a bowl of rice, soup, 3 small side dishes of the day and your choice of main course. Big portion with bits of everything, reasonable in price.
Yam and Seafood Hot Pot Set RM32.80
If you loved yam and pepper soup, do not hesitate, D’Cuisine Yam and Seafood Hot Pot is the must order. The soup itself is peppery hot, tummy warming, and what surprises us is the small cubes of yam hidden within the soup. Boiled till mellow soft, melt in the mouth, soo good!! The yam takes the crown, but seafood are not shadowed too, no doubt in freshness.
Creme Brulee Cappuccino RM9.00
In case you need your caffeine fix, do request coffee menu from the staff. Apart from general espresso based coffe like latte, cappuccno, macchiato, long black and such, we spotted a special pick on D’cuisine coffee list- Creme Brulee Cappuccino. Tastewise, it delivers a complex mix of milk coffee plus custardy soft texture, caramelized sweetness of creame brulee at the top layer. Fun try.
Black Sesame Pudding with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream RM19.00
Chocolate Molten Lava, Matcha Molten Lava and now, another new addition into our “Molten Lava List”- Black Sesame MOlten Lava. The dessert is akin to the former two physically, but no similarity in taste. Thick, rich sesame flavour flooding the tastebud, like eating Chinese Black Sesame Soup (Ji Ma Hu 芝麻糊). Good but recommeded for sharing.
The dessert is prepared fresh, so the kitchen needs 25 minutes of preparing time. Hence it is suggested to order earlier, so when your main course is done, your pudding is ready too.
Baked Banana Filo with Butter Caramel & Vanilla Ice Creamarfait RM16.00
Dessert list in D’Cuisine is certainly amazing, innovative with adventurous mix. No trace of usual cheesecake, chocolate cake or tiramisu, but artisan creation that you can hardly guess the taste till the dessert reach your table. Baked Banan Filo with Butter Caramel & Vanilla Ice Cream, Waterlily Mango Sticky Rice, Salted Egg Pudding with Homemade Van la Ice Cream or Fresh Avocado Espresso Caldo, pick yours.
Comments: Our visit to D’cuisine is truly satisfying. Food are great, service is polite and friendly. Do not get intimidated by its outlook which is grandeur, as food prices in D’cuisine is generally acceptable. Just, the classy ambience is one of their principles to provide diners with comfortable, relaxed dining environment. Walk in, don’t step back! Do not leave without trying their dessert.
