ANTE @ Publika ReviewThursday, December 22, 2016
ANTE is located at street level at Solaris Dutamas, which is to left of the parking entrance from the main road. The interior ambiance looks like part of some mafia movies scene with old fashioned tiling, soft hanging lights, and burgundy studded sofa lounges.

Let's begin with the Miso Pork Belly. The belly is slow cooked for 12 hours under low fire to maintain the soft texture and moist of the meat with the miso glaze for flavour which is an ideal union as the natural taste of the meat is evident and not overwhelmed by the miso. Topped with sprinkle of herb crust (baked bread crumbs mixed with butter, a bit of miso with thyme herbs)
|Miso Pork Belly - RM 19.00|
|House Smoked Bacon - RM 19.00|
On the wooden platter which would be the Tasting Platter, an array of delightful cold platter spread that tickles your fancy and curiosity. The platter consists of Jamon Iberico Ham, Spanish cured ham, Duck Breast cubes along with extra virgin olive oil infused rockmelon and ricotta. Sourdough bread with Lescure French Butter is served with it to balance the taste which the amalgam taste could be tad overwhelming.
|Tasting Platter - RM 46.00|
|Crispy Trotter Salad - RM 29.00|
|Garden Duck Salad - RM 27.00|
The signature pork steak category has a total of 4 cuts, each with its own signature sauce and accompaniments. It is said to be the pride and joy of ANTE as featuring different cuts of the meat, grilled to ensure flavour and texture. Each dish is also paired with different sauces and meticulously select components to complement the dish. All cuts are handpicked and manicured before cooking, ensuring quality in every slice. After cooking, all steaks are temperature checked for doneness before serving.
Pork Striploin Daine is tender loin meat with a strip of fat that is cooked Diane style on a bed of green pea mash and roasted russet potatoes drenched with a mushroom brandy sauce. This is particular easy going for those on lean.
|Pork Striploin Diane - RM 42.00|
|Pork Striploin Black Pepper Sauce - RM 38.00|
Pork Shoulder is well marbled cut of dark meat on the bone. This particular cut is rather tender and showcases that pork has dark meat that when grilled adequately, makes a terrific steak. Served with herbed rosemary garlic sauce, mashed potatoes, frisee & oak lettuce. I honestly enjoy this cut as the meat texture is moist and flavourful without any sauce which appeals to me tremendously.
|Pork Shoulder - RM 52.00|
|Pork Ribeye - RM 52.00|
Char Siu Curry Cream is arguably a unique pasta dish that we have ever tried. It's in house made char siu on top of a bed of linguine tossed with curry, eggplant ragout and shimeiji mushrooms. The result - tad spice and a pathway of spectrum in taste.
|Char-siu Curry Cream - RM 33.00|
|Carbonara - RM 30.00|
Valrhona Chocolate Delice - A layered dessert using feuilltine as a crisp base, the top layer is entirely made up of Varlhona dark chocolate. Adorned with cocoa soil, almond flakes and earl grey tea infused cream and fresh strawberries. A chocolate lover's ideal dessert for something light and comfortable after a hearty meal. A signature dessert available only at ANTE
|Valrhona Chocolate Delice - RM 21.00|
|Creme Brulee - RM 21.00|
|Apple Crumble - RM 18.00|
The meal is exquisite especially those steak cuts that really leave an impression by its individual presentation and taste. A must try for swine lovers out there and bring friends or partner as those cuts could be tight on those tummy. Thank ANTE for having us on the day and we hope they will continue create new items for the menu which we might drop by again very soon !!
