Ciao @ Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur
December 30, 2009
Ciao has reopened in a new location, a two-minute drive from where it once was.
The current place has the same beautiful feel, with a few snazzy, up-to-date touches, including a prodigiously stocked bar.
The setting has always been the key reason to visit Ciao _ not the food, which is satisfactory but not outstanding.
Penne with mud crab, broccoli, green olives, diced tomatoes, dill and lobster bisque. A hearty portion, generously laden with fresh-tasting ingredients.
Ravioli filled with roasted pumpkin & served with sun-dried tomatoes, capers, smoked salmon & lemon zest. Pumpkin ravioli might be the ultimate comfort food in Italian cooking.
Potato gnocchi with gorgonzola & cream sauce. A bit too stodgy to recommend.
Cactus Jack (tequila, blue curacao, orange, pineapple, lemon juice) and Butterscotch Daiquiri (rum, butterscotch liqueur, lime juice).
Roasted Toasted Almond (vodka, kahlua, amaretto, cream) and Frozen Russian (bailey's, vodka, creme de cacao, vanilla ice cream).
