KL'S NEW FINE DINING EXPERIENCE
Opened about a month ago, Savini Ristorante Italiano brings a breath of fresh air to KL's fine dining food scene.
Located on the second floor at the Intermark, Jalan Tun Razak, it features a modern and classy interior to fete gourmands who relish the finer things in life.
Patrons who dine here are advised to expect the unexpected from Chef Azizan.
He has been at the forefront of Malaysia's fine dining movement and his creativity with taste and colour will impress.
He is a painter who dares to play with food.
My personal favourite were his Hokkaido Scallops with Watermelon.
Every bite brings more pleasure than one has ever experienced before.
The use of simple seasoning and balance between sweet and sourish was just perfect.
Wagyu beef lovers will be glad to know that Chef Azizan only selects the marble 8 grade.
Robin, the photographer, and I were left speechless with each pleasurable bite of the Wagyu steak that was served with a perfectly made spaghetti tossed in olive oil and garlic.
Chef Azizan is famed for using lots of colour in his creations and this was evident especially in the salads and desserts.
The tiramisu and creme brulee are must-trys.
There are more than 100 labels of fine wines to choose from to pair with the food.
If Italian food does not suit your fancy that day, just ask for Hazizul the manager to see if they are able to customize something not available on the menu.
My complete food review will be published in the May issue of Golf Digest Malaysia.
