Sunday Bubbly Brunch @ Prego

June 9, 2008 at 3:16 pm 2 comments

I have to admit, this was my first time at the Westin Hotel.  The only time I am ever in the heart of KL is to go to KLCC, Starhill, to dine, or if I have some paperwork done at the American Embassy.  Dh needed a new cummerbund so off we went to Pavillion Shopping mall. We thought we would grab lunch first and since the Westin was right across the street, dh asked if I’d like to try Prego.  We were supposed to go for the Pronto Lunch set, but that’s only available for weekdays.  I know, we have to read the fine print.  I didn’t mind staying for the brunch, so we stayed put.  Starwood Privileges only get 10% off for the pricey brunch, but the desserts looked very good.  This brunch comes with free-flow of beverages from champagne to wine, cocktails, smoothies, juices and soft drinks.  What’s different about this authentic Italian brunch at Prego is the antipasto welcome  and “Cooks at Play-the food just keeps coming around.” The rest of the food  , we served ourselves.  The buffet bar has quite a fine selection of dishes and great choices of appetizers from fresh oysters, air-dried beef to diff types of pastas and salads.

First, we were served with fresh bread, not too bad.  I didn’t like the dip too much(tasted like pureed tomato salsa to me).  I simply like fresh bread with good butter or just olive oil. Then we were welcomed with the plate of antipasto of tuna loaf and apple soup.  Quite tasty.  Dh and I both had the tomato basil confit.  Nice combination. “Cooks at play” came around with diff pizzas-mushroom, and squid ink. This is the type of pizza dh likes-very thin crust.  The cooks and servers also came around with a dish of mussels.  It was fresh but too salty for me.  Dh loved the simple pasta the cook served-al dente spaghetti with olive oil, garlic,chili, parsley and what tasted like bacon.  I stuffed myself with fresh green salads with  air-dried beef and carpaccio and fresh oysters.  The tiramisu was very good.  The chocolate souffle that just came out of  the oven was a disappointment.  Too much flour for my taste.  I like my souffle gooey.  Not my fave Sunday brunch.  I guess I was still full from my brkfst to enjoy this brunch.  The champagne was not bad.  The grappa limoncello took getting used to.  I didn’t have my digi camera, so didn’t have any photos.

    It is not bad if you like lime and liqueurs.
