It has been quite a while since I last step into Pavilion and I have read a few blog post that new restaurant opened on the 6th floor which looks pretty cool with its concept. Then few days ago, whereby, I came down to meet up my friend which had been quite long time since I last met her. Then I suggested this place Market Hall and she said not a bad place.

[UPdated Jan 2012: No longer in operations]

market hall (1)

I like their restaurant concept, which is similar to one of my favorite seafood restaurant when I was in Melbourne in Crown Casino.

market hall (2)

Right at the entrance they do sell other items more on Italian range and also some bottle drinks ..

market hall (3)

I like their concept with its simple contemporary rustic style, that place wooden tables and chairs, using chalkboard on the wall to draw what is the specials of the day.

market hall (5)

market hall (6)

A very huge open concept kitchen and you will be amaze to see how many chefs and assistant are in there.

market hall (7)

Their pasta are made fresh daily or would say, when we place order then only they will prepare it ..

market hall (8)

Not only that, you get to choose the seafood too . .

market hall (9)

in the chiller, the desert looks tempting too . .

market hall (10)

market hall (11)

In the menu, they do offer more on the Italian side, with Risotto, pasta, pizza and others. . .

market hall (12)

Then comes by this complementary bread stick with salsa sauce I guess and its nice, soft loaf that prepare fresh and warm then dip with the salsa sauce is just perfect. Eat it while its warm.

market hall (13)

Then in the menu found this dish to be very unique ‘Tagliatelle – Fresh Salmon tossed in Vodka, citrus zest, and mascarpone cream sauce @ RM 32.90. For the price of this and the amount of small chunks of salmon in there is very generous, which I can say that every bite will filled with salmon. I love the taste of it , which is a bit sourish of the olive, and the sauce just coat on the tagliatelle which is fresh made. I love it .. – Recommended~

market hall (14)

Now days, I am hook with anything that state with blue cheeze ..  although not many people can accept the taste but if it is done well, the taste is super nice. Then I try out Market Burger Spicy Mayo, caramelise Onion, Bleu Cheeze @ RM 22.90

When it was served, my friend she kept laughing cuz it looks like baby’s diapers been wrap up and ready to throw away . .I was like ‘Oi..that’s my food ler’ . . . .

market hall (15)

I love this burger how it was done compare to other restaurant by using fluffy buns, and this the made it more like focassia bread that been toast on both side till the top is crisp’s and the butter just soak into the bun welly. The beef patty is home made by judging its compact meat and was cook medium well to my liking. The juicy sauce combines well with the taste with the burger doesnt make it too dry and the bleu cheeze was stuff in the middle of the burger that very mild in taste and make the aroma stood up and combines well. I enjoy this burger very much . .- Recommended~

market hall (16)

Then only I realise that the side entrance I used to see alot people queing up on weekend is a bar behind the restaurant which is called the Bedroom, more on foreign style too which I rate a bit of opera decor on the ceiling with comfy leather sofa and huge dance space.. I will sure come and check it out one weekend. .

I am quite satisfied with the food quality that they served in Market Hall and the service is not bad too, or I guess it was just weekdays whereby only a few dining tables were occupied. Anyway, I will return to try out their desert as I was full on that night. If you are looking for nice ambiance to hang out with friends, its a Recommended place by me ..

To be honest, I did not know what is St.Patrick’s day until 2 years ago when I started to read blog, and all I know it Guinness is associated with this event which comes to a conclusion to me that St.Patrick’s Day = Guinness. Then only I get to know what the meaning is all about. It is a annual holiday that is widely celebrated on the 17th of March as to name after the Saint Patrick which is also known as Catholic holiday and had become a big celebration in Ireland after 1600s. Now with this annual event had become a global signature and widely celebrated around the globe.

Then back to my study life when I enjoy my very first encounter with Guinness was thought by a good friend of mine Mervyn and I still remember that time Mervyn and Mike keep telling me, lets go and enjoy BLACK JUICE. I was puzzle and thinking what the hell is Black Juice, not until we reach Crown Casino in Melbourne where there are happy hours going on, they order 3 pint for me. I was like Stim, how to finish some it taste awful. From there, they teach me how to enjoy this great drink till today, Guinness is still one of the drink top in my list. Seriously, a drink that toast to them for teaching me and also TO ARTHUR!

Most of the meal prepared that night are specially for this occasion and either, season with stout, mix with it or any you can think of.

Santini (8)

It might look plain on this chicken strips but the hidden taste is it had been season with stout for couple of hours and deep fried. Dipping it with the mayonise is finger licking good.
