WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Italian -

This stal­wart of pop­u­lar restau­rant strip of Jalan Bangkung con­tin­ues to of­fer up time-tested Ital­ian clas­sics in a cosy and in­ti­mate am­bi­ence.

Com­mence the meal with the gen­er­ous Opus spe­cial combo plat­ter, a smor­gas­bord of deep-fried baby squid, sautéed mush­rooms, smoked sal­mon rolls with rocket salad, as­para­gus beef rolls, fried chicken ten­ders and baked scal­lops in shar­ing por­tions. An­other firm favourite starter is the Cap­rese salad.

From its im­pres­sive pasta list, the spaghetti ala Opus is a good choice. It’s a hearty, gen­er­ous bowl of spaghetti coated in a light, clean tomato sauce and packed with fresh, suc­cu­lent seafood. The grilled New Zealand rack of lamb is a win­ning choice of main with its three sub­stan­tial cut­lets skil­fully seared on the out­side whilst main­tain­ing a juicy, pink in­te­rior. An­other out­stand­ing main is the crowd favourite roasted cod. It is roasted to per­fec­tion and flakes to the touch with a white wine and Kala­mata olive sauce adding zing to the dish.

An el­e­gant end to the meal comes in the form of the Opus spe­cial tiramisu, a splen­did and scrump­tious in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the clas­sic dessert.
