Prego @ The Westin in KL

July 19, 2010

It's unusual for sleepyheads like us to be out and about on a Sunday morning, but these three hours spent at Prego's champagne brunch flew by pretty painlessly.

Brunching here requires minimal effort, since waiters with trays of pasta, pizza, fish & meat stroll around to serve customers at their tables.

Alas, their eat-all-you-can offerings aren't as creative as their regular a la carte menu; the pastas comprise run-of-the-mill recipes, including spaghetti aglio olio & penne arrabiata, while the pizzas seem limp and soggy.

There are still several hits to be savored, such as the piping-hot potato soup...

... but the misses include unappetizingly cold poached eggs.

Don't dismiss the meat; the lamb cutlets, beef ribs & beef cheeks are succulent and flavorsome (but they make few appearances compared to the baked dory).

There's also a buffet counter spread with the usual oysters & shellfish.

The antipasti selection is worth browsing. Liked the pumpkin & baked onion.

Brave the heat to venture outside for grilled meat & seafood at the courtyard.

Pile a plate with lamb, roast beef & squid, then share the bounty at your table.

Desserts include Italian pastries, cakes and fruits. No complaints there.

A small selection of gelati constitutes the perfect end to the meal.

A free flow of Veuve Clicquot led us to temporary insanity & memory loss.

Peach Bellini.

Shooters of vodka with lime cordial.
