Fullhouse @ Sunway Pyramid

April 6, 2017

Stepping into Fullhouse is akin to walking into a wonderland for the young at heart, especially for customers who love dollhouses - this spacious restaurant is a distinctive sanctuary for families & friends to flock together in a soothing, serene setting conveniently housed an escalator ride above Sunway Pyramids skating rink. Know You Are Loved & Be Thankful, Fullhouses colourful mascots proclaim as they welcome you at the entrance.

Now is the ideal occasion to visit Fullhouse; the restaurant recently launched a revamped menu with many potential new favourites for the mall congregation. Start with Mr Krabby (RM22.90) - we like this mix of crab meat, scrambled eggs & spring onions, flavoursome & fresh, stuffed winningly in a crab shell, breaded & deep-fried for a lovely texture, served with lemon aioli for a little uplift; its a well-executed recipe that makes for a worthwhile introduction to the kitchen here.

Chicken is also an attraction - the Chicken Parmigiana (RM29.90) is a capable take on the Italian classic, with the tender thigh meat topped with turkey ham & bolognese sauce, baked with mozzarella cheese for layers of creamy, addictive pleasure. The signature chicken chop (RM22.90) will have fans too, featuring a char-grilled cut blanketed in house-made black pepper raisin sauce, complemented by mashed potatoes, corn on the cob & sauteed garden vegetables for a hearty lunch or dinner.

Pastas & pizzas ensure theres something for everyone - the baked cheese penne (RM22.90) is piping-hot comfort in a bowl, with plenty of turkey ham, mushrooms, mozzarella to dig into, while the Hawaiian pizza (RM23.90) is a fuss-free interpretation of this familiar staple, amply adorned with turkey ham, pineapples, onions & mozzarella on a tangy tomato base.

The menu spans both East & West, hitting the bulls eye (egg) with a pretty tasty fried rice (RM21.90) thats surrounded by crisp boxing chicken, prawns, fish cakes, fish crackers & pickled vegetables that should placate the Asian palate, plus a barn-storming beef burger with the works (RM25.90), heaped high for a sink-your-teeth-into-this tower of a temptation.

Wheres the beef? is a question thatll be rewarded with a sizzling response, as a grilled rib-eye (RM49.90) surfaces at the table, steaming on the hot plate, complete with potato wedges, buttered vegetables & a side salad, bolstered by a choice of black pepper raisin, garlic herb or mushroom sauce - a classic throwback to a stalwart of Malaysian steakhouse menus for decades, & now, the final piece of the puzzle for Fullhouse head chef Alvin Yaps current recommendations.

Desserts are designed for chocoholics - Death By Chocolate (RM19.90) showcases the visual flair of a molten lava cake perched atop & dripping down on ice cream & berries, while the Triple Chocolate (RM19.90) is precisely what its name indicates, with an all-chocolate ensemble of a chocolate brownie with chocolate ice cream & chocolate sauce on a too-hot-to-handle pan, reflecting the work of pastry chef Florencia Gladys.

Fullhouse offers a wide range of flagship beverages with plenty of vibrant, photo-happy allure - we merrily sipped on Tonys Sparkling Tea, the Tracy Garden Greens, Tiramisu, Traffic Light, Thomas Cocout Mint Shake & Tiffani Yuzu-&-Rose throughout a leisurely midday meal here. Many thanks to the friendly Fullhouse team for having us.
