M Marini Caffé

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Contemporary -

WHY GO

This café is a de­light­ful sur­prise. Din­ers will not re­ally be ex­pect­ing any­thing like the league of Marini’s, 57 floors up from here; they will be im­pressed though.

TATLER TIPS

Although the menu is much smaller, the con­tents are mas­ter­fully cooked, pre­sented and served. It’s a mir­a­cle that such a small kitchen can pro­duce such qual­ity re­sults. The wine list will ap­peal to cham­pagne ad­dicts.

• The only sig­na­ture dish listed is “cold pasta”. It doesn’t sound inspiring, but the sim­ple pair­ing of aglio olio with a lit­tle pecorino is quite ir­re­sistible.

• Meat lovers will find some dishes, such as the slow-cooked ribs, more in­vig­o­rat­ing than a pedes­trian roast chicken.

• The real treat here are the desserts. It would be hard to find a bet­ter panna cotta.
