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.
This dish won both our hearts and stomach. Roasted to juicy perfection, the 400g Australian grain-fed lamb is perfect for sharing. Although presented with the option of the classic mint sauce, we preferred to savour the lamb on its own. Slice a piece, soak up the juices by doing a quick mop on the board, and pop it in your mouth for a hearty burst of flavour. Accompanied with a side of potato puree combined with truffle, the lamb is the best value for money and quality.
