The best tasting dish of the night. Light and sweet tomato sauce coats the beautiful handmade pasta perfectly.

A simple and light salad to start the meal, and probably one of the better dishes of the night. Love the honey mustard dressing, but again, the portion was a bit small for the price.

They ran out of tagliatelle on my visit so we had it with spaghetti instead. The handmade pastas here are really good – nicely al dente. The wild boar tomato sauce though, under-seasoned and a bit dry. Also, the meat portion was very little. Just a little bit more salt and more tang from tomato would have made the dish better.

Set Lunch - RM$19
1 Soup, 1 Main, 1 Drink
Pizza Tandoori Treasure (M)
·
Pizza is made upon order, freshness guaranteed. Comes with tomatoes, mozzarella, chicken tandoori, sour cream, peppermint and lime. Very refreshing personal pan pizza. The size is just nice for 1, not oily, with a slight crispy crust. The chicken tandoori is tender but was only given a few piece. Sour cream gives the pizza a nice feel, pair with the lime and peppermint, it lighten the whole meal. The cream broccoli soup given was so so good. Super affordable, super worthwhile

There’s no lack of good food in Pavilion, but how about a set lunch that comes with a Soup of the Day and one coffee / tea / iced lemon tea for just RM19.00?

I had a nice lunch here because of the completeness of the meal. The fresh greens were tossed in olive oil before serving, and the fries were crisp. Although the chicken breast was a bit drier (but wasn’t that how chicken breast was supposed to be?), adding the mushroom sauce to the protein made it much tastier without overdoing with salt or MSG.

Soft launch was yesterday and the official launch is on 1st of July, so we're getting in early alright.
.
Bread: quite crunchy crust, very soft innards. The typical Gardenia-bred Malaysian will love this. Snarkiness aside, it's not too bad actually. Soft but it doesn't become gluey, thankfully. And it came with an alright-ish puttanesca sauce.
.
Wild boar tagliatelle: I hate parsley-garnish on plate rims. The boar needs more seasoning and could do with a longer braise. Bland, not much flavour, and all that effort is just wasted, really. The pasta itself is alright. Good for Sri Petaling, at least. The sauce, though, is slightly watery and again, a tad bland. It's made in-house but it does need a bit more richness. At RM35 too, you're looking at something a good deal pricier and worse than, say, Basil Pasta House.
.
Seafood linguine was much better. Nice, al dente, linguine. Squiggly squid offset by alright prawns. A good plate of pasta.
.
And speaking of plates, the plates are so old fashioned here. And the food came out in a very strange order. We were halfway through our mains before the starter finally arrived. Huge kitchen though.
.
Gamberi croccanti alla catalana: interesting filo pastry on the prawn (lovely texture) but unfortunately it completely overwhelms the prawn. Can't taste much of anything inside. And the diced vegetable base just doesn't work. Looks awfully 'cheap', the celery overpowers everything, and a softer base would be a better textural contrast.
.
The rest of the menu does look promising (porchetta salad, fusilli with chicken-pork ragu and white wine, 200g grass-fed Angus rib-eye for MYR 70, calzones), though artificially pricey for the area. And the ingredients and execution don't quite justify it so far. Early days though. We're keen to follow its progress, given our office is so nearby. And if it doesn't work out, there's always Sourakuya a couple doors away. Now if only Sourakuya would drop their prices back to what they used to be!

Although it cost more than a typical coffee shop, it’s portions are huge! Here, this huge pomfret comes layered with crispy fried bits and spicy belacan at the side.

This was no doubt a beautiful dish, however I felt like something was missing in this for me. The pasta – freshly-made by the kitchen – had a beautiful bite just look the detailed edges on each one of them! However I did find the flavours a bit overpowering for me. It was too spicy which was the only flavour profile I could take note of. But again, to me, it feels like it needed something more. Maybe a glass of wine to pair with the pasta?

I personally preferred this veggie pasta to the other for its fresh and clean flavours. The gnocchetti was a bit more firm than I’d like but it still makes for a nice bite. I would have liked maybe a bit of zing (lemon maybe???) for some extra layers of flavour, but I still enjoyed this!

Squares of polenta mixed with tallegio cheese make for a nice (but also heavy) appetiser. This comes with two condiments, semi-dried tomato pesto and aubergine spread, but I personally prefer the former for its tang and slight spice. While I’m typically a fan of aubergine, the herby flavours didn’t quite sit well with me.

Heard a few good review about this new place for paste. Their menu is kinda limited. I ordered the reginette cooked with braised chicken, pork pancetta with white wine x chicken broth as based. Erm, I find it okay, because I always prefer something taste strong. If you like spicy I think you can go for creste de Gallo lisce, but the level of the spiciness is bearable to me. My friend agreed. They do serve wine in glass, so we ordered white wine to pair with our pasta ;)
