Silver Spoon @ Bandar Menjalara
April 14, 2010
We rarely venture into the Kepong neighbourhood, but this Italian restaurant provided a worthwhile reason to stray from our usual haunts.
Silver Spoon Trattoria is still in its soft-launch phase, so we braced ourselves for some kinks with the kitchen. Surprisingly though, everything seemed reasonably polished, from the setting to the service to the servings.
Chicken liver pate. A thick, smooth spread, nicely flavoured with brandy and thyme.
Fish soup. Marvelously aromatic and fresh-tasting, though it would be even better if it contained slices of fish instead of only croutons.
Wild mushroom risotto with shaved parmesan. We can never resist ordering risotto, but this mushroom-filled platter was our least favourite item that night, since we're not really fans of mushrooms.
Homemade gnocchi with beef bacon, chili & sage in burnt butter sauce. Light, fairly fluffy and not stodgy at all. But this might be more memorable with a different sauce, since it was rather bland despite the bacon.
