Em’s menu is predominantly Mediterranean influenced, with a reference dish from countries surrounding the Mediterranean sea. Served with couscous and garnished with coriander, chef slow-cooked the Moroccan Lamb Tajine (RM26) till tenderly soft. I like how the almonds and sweetness of prunes give this lamb shoulder a contrast in texture as well as flavors that are sure to leave your senses craving for more!

A small surprise from South East Asia, I found these Indochina Beef Ragout (RM25) and Big Pho Ga (RM18) simply captivating with Em’s own style of taste.

Lighter in texture compared to others, this classic Silky Carbonara (RM19) was served together with egg, crispy turkey ham and cheese. Silky but not scrambled, it was just nice for my own liking.
