Dinner @ Spasso Milano

The last time I visited Spasso Milano, was to try their buffet lunch. My cousin, an avid lover of food, was down - and I had suggested we try Spasso Milano for dinner. And so we headed over to the restaurant, located on the first floor of the Nihonkan Club, on Jalan Ampang.

The service was fantastic, and the waiters were prompt, and always there to attend to our need. As we sat in our plush chairs, we were served complimentary pieces of Bread with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. The bread was fantastic on it's own and did not even need the balsamic and oil! I just wish they gave us more of it though, instead of only a plate of it.

The Ragu' di Pollo with Squid Ink Pasta, was good. The pasta was cooked perfectly al-dente. In hindsight, however, I wish I had ordered something different and more exiting as the sauce was too one-dimensional for me, and had no other edge to it.

Other things on the table included a Cannelloni al Frutti di Mare Gratinati. The cannelloni pasta was filled with an abundance of sliced seafood like prawns and crab, and baked to perfection in a tangy, yet smooth lobster cream sauce. The baked cheese at the top added to the decadence.

My cousin had herself an Aragosta e Gamberoni con Olio al Pomodoro. The tomato oil added a depth of flavor to the king prawn and lobster, though the meats of the two pieces of seafood were unfortunately tough. The seafood was accompanied by some polenta and grilled vegetables.

Finally, we were served a Calzone Pizza. The pizza was very good as well - with the pizza having come piping hot from the oven. The ingredients used - such as artichokes, ham and mushrooms - seemed fresh, though I seriously wish they had given us more of it.

In conclusion, Spasso Milano was gave us a pleasant experience as a whole, and despite a few let-downs when it came to the food, we were nonetheless satisfied. Parking is an abundance at Nihonkan, so don't hesitate on coming down for a bite to eat, though do stay away from the boring items on their menu...and don't bother ordering their lobster.
