Porcélene @ Empire Damansara

With the recent hype on colorful umbrellas hanging high above the sky on social media platform, come another attraction here at Empire Damansara with the official launch of Porcélene.

Porcélene is not just typically another new restaurant but instead it is an integration of Asian-European fusion that is fun and flavorful that suits not just the local but also the taste bud of the foreigners as well. Equipped with a cozy dining atmosphere, Porcélene is ready to set the bar high by marrying uniquely tasty food with a glass of wine pairing as well as a jazzy performance from Crinkle Cut and other local band on alternate day. The 3 level high (with a rooftop experience coming soon) matches the overall Empire Damansara theme with each level design to give comfort at its best, and performances will be held at the Bowler Room on the 2nd floor where Malaysia's First Acid Jazz Bar is located as well.

With so much to highlight on the ambiance, let's not forget the main hero here, the food. Porcélene is not your ordinary dining space, it serves not just entertainment but romantic yet classy & tasty fusion that doesn't hurt your wallet on any occasion.  With just RM16++ you can get a beyond decent set meal for your lunch and trust me, they are generous with the ingredient.

Pizza Number Ten (RM36)
Pizza Number Ten consist of Shredded Duck Breast and Crispy Skin, Cucumber, Spring Onion with Hoisin Sauce Base. Despite not a huge fan of duck meat, I was surprise that I actually had several slice of this and not only it has this cheesy bite to it it also has some sweetness in it whereby the skin was nicely done over authentic wood-fire oven that infused it into part of its flavor profile.

Pantai Timur (RM36)
Pantai Timur as its name suggest is made with Mixed Seafood with extra Spicy Sambal Belacan. Love how it all blend so well with not overly spicy taste to it. Definitely a must for all the seafood lover out there.

Hahm Yoke Than Sotong (RM18/serving)
Deep Fried Squid Saute with Salted Egg and Curry Leaves is what made Hahm Yoke Than Sotong so enjoyable by every diners. The aromatic of this dish can reach up to miles and those who had salted egg before would definitely drool for this, especially when it is embeded into one of Asian's preferred dish - squid.

Cajun Cutlets (RM38/serving)
Chargrilled Lamb Culets Topped with Homemade Cajue Spices. No doubt one of the best and flavorful lamb I had in ages.

Signature Aglio Olio Di Nero (RM19/serving)
Squid Ink Spaghetti with Mushrooms, Sun Dried Tomato, Garlic and option to add Chili Flakes or Dry Chili to Spice It Up! Never really try squid ink spaghetti simply because of its dark color but brave myself to try a scoop and damn, not only it is good, the ingredient given was generous and that every bite there's the present of mushrooms.

Sauteed Roasted Potato 
Never knew potato could taste this good. With mild sweetness from the fresh onion, these roasted potato give that extra flavor to any of your dish without overpowering them but instead complimenting and completing the awesome journey down your tummy.

NYC Short Ribs (RM46/serving)
Succulent and Tender Beef Ribs Glazed with Homemade BBQ Sauce serves with Cross Trax Fried and Mix Salad.

Roman Salmon Roast (RM38/serving)
Serves with Roaster Potato, Shitake Mushroom, Edemame Beans and Champagne Cream Sauce, the salmon is as fresh as you could get, tender and moist, this is perfection at its best.

Paella De El Submarino Amarillo (RM58/serving)
Spanish Rice with Green Mussel, Shrimp, Squid, White Clams and Pan Seal Fish Fillet. By reading its description does make one drool all around the menu, but I am not a fan of Spanish Rice which is slightly sticky and watery but rest assured that this is definitely a "one stop" dish where you get to enjoy tons of seafood in great amount in a single spoon.

Mini Tart
Signature Tiramisu
What's better way to put and end to an awesome dinner other than sweet dessert? The mini tart however was slightly over the dry side toward the bottom of the tart but credit have to be given to the not too sweet cream sitting above. Signature Tiramisu is a must have dessert, its bitter yet mildly sweet smooth texture is definitely something that would enlighten up the feeling of first love.
