D Empire Art of Cuisine Pavilion KL – With a catchy all-white front facade near centre area of Pavilion 6th floor (*opposite Tonkatsu) you can hardly miss out this restaurant when passing by, or perhaps in the next second, already having desire to try it out. For the latter, you should.
Specializes in European cuisine, D Empire aims to satisfy diners with delicacies from the continent at affordable price,, in an elegant dining ambience. Food here is prepared by Chef Dallan Tan, an experienced chef who has honed his skills in Europe for many years before returning to homeland.
D Empire menu covers a good selections of starters, salads, pizzas, soups, lasagna, pasta, meat, poultry, seafood, risottos and desserts. Among all, Mushroom Risotto, Stuffed Escargots Bourguignon, Australian Braised Lamb Shank, Hazulnut Truffle Brownie and Beef Steak are some of the must-have.
Stuffed Escargot Bourguignon RM26.90
For starter, Stuffed Ecargots Bourguignon is our favourite. 6 French snails in one serving, each beautifully spiced up with chopped garlic, English parsley and melted butter that add in mellow sweetness.
Caesar Salad RM18.90
Caesar salad is kept simple with romaine lettuce as leafy green, tossed with D Empire housemade caesar dressing. Further topped with croutons, parmesan cheese and your choice of beef bacon or smoked chicken ham. Nothing fancy but deserved applause on the effort of making caesar sauce instead of using store bought bottled sauce.
Smoked Salmon Pizza
Smoked Salmon Pizza in D Empire falls on thin crust version, crispy throughout, not much doughy bites. Spread with tomato sauce and cheese before going for oven bake, then topped with rocket leaves and smoked salmon slices. Summergirl always enjoy the combination of rocket leaves and smoked hence she literally can have the whole pizza to herself. Order if you were same as her.
Australian Braised Lamb Shank RM52.90
Australian lamb shank arrives in a hearty portion. A little gamey to us but doesn’t matter as the nicely braised meat has taken over the attention – fork tender, dressed in flavoursome reduction of lamb sauce. Complete with a side of mashed potato and seasonal vegetables.
Seafood Risotto RM39.90
Our favourite in D Empire Restaurant. Risotto is getting more common in Kuala Lumpur but not all done it right, sometimes over rich, sticky and way too difficult to finish. D Empire version is surprisingly delicious! Creamy gravy but not cloying, thickly coated to rice that is still hard at the centre of grain. Tossed with mussels, squid, prawns and clams.
French Style Seabass Fillet RM46.90
Pan-fry seabass with appetizing spicy coulis sauce, a side of vegetables and seasonal superfood salad. Highly recommended if you are planning to have fish dish during your visit to D Empire. Besides, D Empire is prides for their steaks – Australian Ribeye, Australian Black Angu, Wagyu Beef Ribs and Blackmore Wagyu Sirloin.
Hazelnut Truffle RM17.90
Dessert, the sweetest time for our dinner. Opted for Hazelnut Truffle, a chocolate brownie like sweet treat, strongly infused with taste of truffle. Crowned with your choice of strawberry, vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
For beverage, D Empire serves a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, ranging from mocktail, fruit punch, coffee, Gryphon fine tea, soda, ice blended, fruit juices to margarita, long island tea, classic mojito, beer, wine.
