Avanti @ Sunway Resort Hotel

September 15, 2009

A longtime crowd-pleaser that fares well with families. The food here seems consistently good, offering both familiar favourites and adventurous options.

A wide open space with unique touches, including a nightly pianist as well as crayons for kids to doodle on the paper table sheets.

Lots of complimentary bread with a side of tuna and olive oil.

Lime-marinated swordfish carpaccio with fennel salad, pink peppercorn & extra virgin olive oil. Highly recommended; the fatty fish went well with the crunchy salad.

Maltagliati in lobster ragout with fresh tomato and pesto sauce. There's a reason why this is Avanti's signature dish. It's comfort food to warm the stomach and the soul.

Brown rye flour stracci with seared sea scallop, garlic, chilli & cherry tomatoes. We lapped this up. A hearty, unpretentious dish that tastes pretty healthy.
