Dish @ Dua Annexe KL

Nice warm ambience

It was my first time at Dish. Delicious had opened upstairs for quite sometime before Dish opens downstairs. There is a differentiation in food despite both the outlets being under the same management. Dish serves the upmarket/fine-dining cuisine whereas Delicious is more to a casual dining place.

I was here for 1 simple reason : The roasted bone marrow. After I have read about the bone marrow dish at Masak-Masak, I had to come here and so I called to make a reservation and pre-ordered my bone marrow just in case they ran out of it.

Roasted Juicy Bone Marrow (RM38)

I have not had bone marrow before, the ones roasted from the bones of a cow! This roasted beef-marrow bones, is served with toasted baguette and a capers parsley salsa and shallot salad. The way you eat bone marrow is that you scoop up the marrow from the bone and you smear it all over the toast. Then you sprinkle some salt on top of it for flavour. If not, eating it by itself is good enough!

After all, Anthony Bourdain called it "Butter of the Gods" and I couldn't agree less. The marrow itself is basically condensed beefiness in jelly-like form. I think the closest association to its taste and texture would have to be escargots in garlic butter and the fats from the char siew. However, the marrow has a more robust taste to it. I would really recommend you try this if you ever get a chance.

Beringer Zinfandel Rose 2008 (RM129)

This is a drink for the summers or under the sun. On the nose, it reveals some floral notes intermingled with citrus and strawberries. It has a very sweet and floral note coupled with a nice salmon pink hue. However, the bubblies are so fine and little, it's not tingling. It's a nice aperitif and should be served at around 8 – 10 °C.

Braised Oxtail (RM28 tasting portion)

This is a rustic braised Oxtail with redwine served with Rustichella d'abruzzo orecchiette and fresh oregano. Orecchiette, meaning little ears, is the most typical pasta of Puglia. One of a special line of hand-made pastas produced by Rustichella d'Abruzzo, it represents the true meaning of the artisan tradition. However, I find the oregano taste missing from this dish.

US Prime Striploin (RM38/100g)

I've always like to try different steaks at different dining places so that I know which place serves the best steaks in town. This place serves a variety of cuts. They have Australian Black Angus, US Prime Tenderloin, Wagyu marble 5 and 7 and prices range from RM28 to RM100 per 100g. The one that I had is around 260g and it's around RM100. It can be prepared to your preference and I just like a butter truffle steak served medium.

I must say that the steak I had was commendable. It was acceptable but not up to the standards as I believe that we can't really get good steaks here in KL due to the quality of the raw ingredients. In Singapore, getting a good steak wasn't so difficult. I certainly hope the quality of the meat that we import can be better in the future.

Portobello Mushroom (RM15)

Another must have is the Portobello mushroom. Of all mushrooms, this is a very interesting one because the taste and texture itself resembles the palate of meat which is plump and firm. It's quite big and it's juicy. Best served sauteed with olive oil and butter.

This is the good-looking staff that served us that night.

He has been very friendly and has enlightened me about the set-up of this place. We teased him a bit telling him to underwrite me if I couldn't finish my steak. I think he got scared a bit because he showed me the piece of steak to confirm before giving it to the chef to cook it!

Petit Fours

To end the night, we were served a chocolate ganache truffle and a marshmallow which is complimentary. The truffle was soft but not sweet since it's made using dark chocolate and the marshmallow has a citrus taste to it.

The whole dining experience is enjoyable and I would definitely comeback to try the other dishes and the must have roasted bone marrow.

Wonder if I dare to try. You seem to like the bone marrow so much. Waiter Bangla? Seems they employ a lot of them in KL - speak English with a peculiar accent...and not very knowledgeable about the food. Just serve...and not very efficient.

Shiang @ H2S said...

wow marrow looks yummy! can't wait to try :)

Sean said...

i lurve bone marrow too, though it's supposed to be terrible in terms of cholesterol content!

Sure you won’t be infected with mad cow disease?

eiling lim said...

STP: Yeah the bone marrow is very nice. The waiter is a local and is not a Bangla because usually the fine dining restaurants need English speaking workers and knows about the food.

Shiang: Try it!

Sean: Yeah I realised it too! Too late!

Anon: I'm already mad before eating this.

Looks like nowadays Malaysian are much more daring to try different type of foods, there was shop serving bone marrow around Pudu area but 5 years ago not much people acquire such taste yet.

CUMI & CIKI said...

eiling lim said...

TY: Yeah the palate of Malaysians have improved since many of us travel nowadays, we tend to know more about the exotic foods!
