FAVOLA AT LE MERIDIEN KUALA LUMPUR
In KL’s cutthroat dining scene, blindingly brilliant innovation and gastronomic feasts are all very good, but to reach the top, it takes some consistent work and dedicated confidence in what you do. And Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur assuredly does that well. From award-winning Prime, the steakhouse dedicated to all good meats done well, to a stable of high-performing restaurants like Latest Recipe and Gastro Sentral, the team at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur has definitely done their homework, and the result shows.
That said, it takes something else to catapult Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur into the higher echelons of KL’s food scene. Unpretentious and inviting Favola is the crowning restaurant on Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur’s dining roster. Meaning ‘fable’ in Italian, the interiors of Favola are simple and classy, with a wall of beautiful Venetian masks doing all the storytelling.
Favola specialises in Venetian fare, which is a refreshing change from the usual wood-fired pizzas and pastas. A Venetian menu focuses the spotlight on dishes like risotto and seafood. Try signatures like Risotto Nero, a squid ink risotto dish with sautéed lobster, broccolini, lemon rind and cherry tomatoes as well as Conchiglioni Marinara al Cartoccio, a seafood pasta dish baked in gorgeous parcels of tangy tomato sauce, fresh herbs and parmesan cheese. Other highlights include antipasti, Angus ribeye florentina, and beef consommé risotto. Finish the meal with the Cassata made with rich homemade vanilla, strawberry and pistachio ice cream. Enjoy a range of dishes every Saturday when the Semi Buffet Lunch is available at RM 98++ per person. 2 Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur Sentral, Kuala Lumpur (03 2263 7434/ dining. lemeridienkualalumpur.com).
