First of all, I am not a big fan of Pavilion mall in central Kuala Lumpur. It’s out of way from my normal routes hence coming over here only happens once in a blue moon. If you are fashionista or into high fashion then probably you would love coming over here. Anyway this time I was in town for work and came over here to have dinner with friends; two lovely leng loi…*smirk*
So after doing some window shopping we decided to have our dinner at The Press Room. Since it was a weekday, the place was not very crowded and we were seated almost immediately. I like the environment of this place (they claims it’s a modern take of European bistro) as it cosy with a touch of class. They serve French-European cuisine. It is located on Connection annexe on Level 3.
After browsing the menu, we placed our order for The Press Room Salad (Grilled artichokes, asparagus & poached eggs) RM18, Turkey Burger (Turkey patty with fresh salad, Provolone cheese, baby sweet corn, wasabi and sesame seed mayonnaise) RM29 and Penne with Roquefort Cheese (Penne pasta tossed with chicken cubes, broccoli & Roquefort cheese in creamy sauce) RM 28.
The Press Room Salad was good. The egg was poached well and still warm at the point of it being served. The salad dressing was light hence salad didn’t feel too heavy. It would have been nice they would have added some croutons or some crispy bacon to add a little crunch in it.
I was quite skeptical about the Turkey Burger as I was afraid how the turkey patty would turn out. As we all know, turkey meat is can be quite dry and turkey taste a bit bland compared to chicken. The turkey patty was quite thick however it was seasoned and flavoured well. It was not dry at all. What do you know, the burger turned out to be quite good. And I realized not many places serves turkey burger!
If you cheese lover, then you will love this dish; Penne with Roquefort Cheese. This dish was cooked with the main ingredients of cheese and cream so it was pretty cheesy for me. Don’t get me wrong, I do love cheese but not a big fan. The pasta was cooked well a.k.a al dente. Although it was cheesy it didn’t feel very heavy. And luckily we shared this dish so each of us had a portion of it. The sauce was well flavored and cooked well. For those who are curious of what is Roquefort cheese is, here you go.
‘Roquefort is a sheep milk blue cheese from the south of France and together with Bleu d’Auvergne, Stilton and Gorgonzola is one of the world’s best known blue cheeses. Though similar cheeses are produced elsewhere, European law dictates that only those cheeses aged in the natural Combalou caves of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon may bear the name Roquefort, as it is a recognized geographical indication, or has a protected designation of origin.
The cheese is white, tangy, crumbly and slightly moist, with distinctive veins of green mold. It has characteristic odor and flavor with a notable taste of butyric acid; the green veins provide a sharp tang. The overall flavor sensation begins slightly mild, then waxes sweet, then smoky, and fades to a salty finish. It has no rind; the exterior is edible and slightly salty’.
Overall, I am happy coming over here. The service is good and staffs are attentive. The food looks good and taste good! I would say the price is decent for the such establishment in Pavilion.
Visited on 24/Apr/2014. How would I rate them? The atmosphere 4/5, Service 5/5, F&B 5/5.
