2. Brolly for Lambogarlic Pizza
One of Brolly’s signature pizzas, constructed with a crisp spinach dough base, showcases toppings of minced lamb, lamb sausage & garlic sauce. It’s cheekily christened the Lambogarlic – what else?
Address: Ground Floor, Menara Felda
3.Dewakan for Lamb Breast Confit
Confit of lamb breast, perhaps not a part often showcased, fatty & fleshy, full-bodied in flavour, its layers evoking ‘siu yok,’ served with spring onions & marsala & onion puree. It’s one of the simplest-looking of Dewakan’s dining divinities, but it’s no less sumptuous.
Address: Lower Ground Floor, KDU University College
4. Two Sons Bistro for Lamb Meatball Pasta
Two Sons’ lingyine is simmered in robustly savoury tomato-&-olive-based sauce, topped with lamb meatballs that customers can cut open to reveal a centre of hard-boiled quail eggs, a unique take on Scotch eggs.
Address: A4-G2-8, Solaris Dutamas
5.Mercat for Lamb Skewers
Mercat’s lamb skewers are pleasurably tender & pungently tasty, with an amazing piquillo pepper dip that we’d joyously eat on its own.
Address: 51 Jalan Telawi 3, 59100 Bangsar
