Market Hall – Pavillion

My new room is finally done! I love the final outcome very much, especially at night when we turn on the lights. Super romantic and nice. Last week was one of the busiest week of my life. Me leaving the job in ING and joining Allianz on Friday, shifting furniture around for the installation of the new planks on the floor and installing the furniture in the room. When Pooh showed me the outcome of the room last night, it was all worth it. Other people may think that the room is too small, arrangement of the furniture is very weird or the furniture itself is very weird, but I love the room very much. Both me and Pooh plan the room on our own, scout for ideas from Ikea, went furniture shopping on our own and assembling all of them ourselves. In short, the room is our little precious that both of us build with our own hands. I can’t wait for our wedding day to arrive where the room will be decorated with red and white Smile Plus, all my stuff will be there, which will officially complete OUR room Smile


Not so long ago, us girls gathered at Market Hall in Pavillion to celebrate TW’s birthday. I ran out of place/suggestion for food recently and did not participate in food brain storming with them. It is good cause WL and TW gave a few really good recommendations that I will them out really soon. I have been to Pavillion numerous time but never heard of Market Hall. I don’t even know the exact location of the place when I arrived that day. I searched through the food directory and Market Hall is located on the 6th floor, near Din Tai Fung.



At first, from the name and the arrangement of table, I thought the place has the same concept with Marche; you order food from the counter, wait for the food and bring it to your own table. I was wrong. It’s the normal order-from-the-menu-type of restaurant. Love the long table for bigger groups. But my favourite table will be…




the one that we had that day. There were 6 of us meeting up for lunch that day and this table caught my attention. A square table with one side on the side of the wall. On the remaining 3 sides, there is a long and heavy bench that could accommodate up to 3 person. I prefer this table over the long table as it is perfect for talking to each other where everyone can see and listen to others perfectly. If we take the long table, those seated at the corner will have a hard time listening to the on going conversation.





I love the simple menu. They have set meals at RM39.90++ and pasta with soup buffet at RM29.90++. We ordered 2 set meals and 2 pasta to be shared among us.



This is the light appetizer that is highly recommended by bloggers, according to TW and WL. It is actually grilled thinly cut dough dipped with tomato paste. Even though a little bit touch, but I it.



This is the drink that I ordered, which I forgot the name. It is made of grapefruit, spring water and I forgot the last ingredient. It is written on the menu that this drink will give me beautiful skin. Haha. On the first few sip, it tasted really sour and awful. But after a few more sips, the drink was actually not so bad after all. Oh well, anything for beautiful skin right? Hehe.




Our appetizers consist of Market Hall Caesar Salad and Crunchy Spring Roll. It has been a while since I only consume Caesar Salad for dinner during my diet period (which reminds me that I have gained back the kilos that I have lost Sad smile). Some of us found a terrible smell coming from the salad but I assured them that it’s just the cheese/dressing. Nothing is wrong with the salad. The crunchy spring roll consist of cream and according to the girls, they are quite good. I did not try the crunchy spring roll as I don’t like to eat the popiah skin. Hehe.




For main course, we ordered Margherita Pizza and Chicken Roulade. The pizza is thin crust pizza, which I love. I prefer thin crust pizza over normal crust as thin crust pizza are not as filling as normal crust which leave plenty of space in my stomach for other food. The pizza was not bad but nothing to shout about. Chicken roulade is actually green peas and chilli stuffed into chicken breast. There is nothing on that plate that I don’t like, especially the mushroom. I am getting more and more in love with sauteed mushroom ever since I first try them at The Pink Sage for brunch with TW. Ahhh…. that was the most filling meal that I ever had and my first introduction to sauteed mushroom. Yummy Smile




We also ordered 2 types of pasta which I totally forgot their name but the first one taste way better than the second one. This is also my first time trying wider pasta instead of the normal one. The second pasta with orange coloured sauce was too salty for us.




For dessert, we choose Crema Catalana and Ginger Panna Cotta. Among the two, the Crema Catalana tastes better. It is hard to resist the egg custard with the yummy caramelized sugar on top. For dessert, the Ginger Panna Cotta may come as a little bit too spicy.

Something happened during our meal which caught the attention of the owners of the restaurant. They were kind enough to give us discount on our bill as to compensate the “incident”. For me, as long as it is not in our food, then I am cool with it. But still, I am thankful for the discount given. Hahaha.

Last but not least,


Merry Christmas and Peace Out ppl!!! Found this on the wall next to our table. So cute!!!
