If you’re one to arrive at Pavilion KL in an Uber to avoid the consistently terrible KL traffic, you won’t miss the entrance of Mercato. Nestled along Jalan Raja Chulan at Pavilion’s Fashion Avenue entrance, the café offers a mid-day break for shoppers with weary feet, while the oyster bar provides a pleasant ambience at night for the after-work goers. Both eateries share the same menu, littered with all-day dishes from breakfast sets, tapas, oysters, salads, pastas, to mains. Here are some of our picks.
Cooked to al dente perfection, the pesto prawn pasta is what we would pick if we fancied a quick afternoon bite. Paired with fresh de-shelled prawns for a fuss-free eating experience, the pasta boasted refreshing basil notes along with mild grated cheese.
