I love my Sundays. For some its a day for them to sleep in and wake up to a long leisurely brunch / lunch. For me, its being able to take a long run of 3 hours or more then indulge in a long brunch and play catch up with loved ones and close friends. Some Sundays back, its Branzo at Prego with the hubster.
Branzo is from the word ‘Pranzo’ which is a traditional Italian lunch with some added breakfast elements. At Prego @ The Westin Kuala Lumpur, its Branzo every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm. Old and young can dine in comfort of an ala carte buffet where food is served to you at your table. Say good bye to stale food and long buffet lines. Branzo begins from RM128++ with a few packages for you to choose from.
• Package 1 @ MYR128++ per person includes free flow soft drinks, juices and smoothies.
• Package 2 @ MYR186++ per person includes free flow of draught beer (plus package 1)
• Package 3 @ MYR226++ per person includes free flow imported red and white wines with a range of spirits (plus package 1 & 2).
• Package 4 @ MYR286++ per person includes free flow Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne and selected digestifs (plus package 1, 2 & 3).
• Package 4 is called High Roller Party @ RM888++. Purchase a magnum of Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne and up to 4 people eats for free.
On that fine sunny Sunday, the hubster and I opted to have each other for company for our brunch. I supposed the couple time together was much needed since I am travelling quite a bit these days. Yeah...one can say that I am missing the time spent sleeping and working together with the hubster...so a table for 2 to Branzo was a good time gastronomically and emotionally.
When one Branzo, all one needs is to remain glued at our chosen table and waiters will be serving us the courses. Its a 6 course meal and if there is anything that you love, you can certainly ask for more.
Starting the meal with a refreshing cocktail is a good idea. It gets your stomach juices ready for the feast to come!
Prego is famed for their breads and addictive tomato salsa. Go easy on them unless you have plenty of room in you stomach. In my case, I am glad I ran 30km that Sunday morning...I was famished!
Friendly services is what I love bout Prego.
Celebrating Sunday with a Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne
Antipasto is a pretty platter with gratin of scallop, fried calamari, eggplant parmigiana, caprese Caesar salad and prawns.
Because the scallops were so good, I reordered them when we finished our mains and before desserts came along!
Not sure about you but my Sundays must include eggs. Fried egg, eggs Benedict and scrambled eggs...I loved them all!
Pasta & Zuppa kicks off with a very comforting bowl of chicken ravioli in chicken broth that is a family tradition in Chef Samuele Alvisi's family. Do chat him when he walks around and he will have lovely stories of his family to share.
Charming Chef Samuele Alvisi will make his rounds...so chat him more about Italy!
Beef lasagna was one of the husbter's fave for the day.
Casarecce with lamb ragout and spicy clam vongole satisfied my pasta cravings perfectly.
Risotto lovers must save stomach space for Prego's amazing risotto. Totally smitten with the mushroom and truffle risotto. Each spoon was rich, creamy and gratifying!
Different freshly made pizzas make their way around the dining room. The child in the hubster relishes every pizza that arrives at our table. LOL.
Arrosti e contorni - slow roasted lamb leg, fresh water prawns, baked seasonal fish, Australian Angus sirloin, spring chicken and potato. A hearty platter and my faves were the prawns and Angus sirloin.
Chances are most will be quite stuffed and before desserts come along, more cocktails will come in well to clear the tummy.
Desserts are always pretty...and definitely tasty too! Its not an option of choosing which dessert but its definitely a must to have them all! Walnut cheese brownie, raspberry and yogurt cheese cake, fluffy Italian cream horn, strawberry mascarpone tart and tiramisu. Loved them all. Hmmm if time permitted, I would just camp there and just have desserts all afternoon!
A spectacular serving of fine Italian cheese, breads and jams. I was a happy mouse with the very lovely Talleggio, Pecorino Romano, Parmiggiano reggiano, Fontina and Gorgonzola.
A beautiful Sunday indeed spent with the hubster for a fun and tasty Branzo. And making it more fun, we had a try at a game. Every Sunday, Branzo diners can try spotting a certain 'nominated' dish. Spot it and you may well be the lucky winner who gets picked to eat Branzo for FREE!
Memorising what the dish will look like
I spotted it and I submit it via Whatsapp. Of course you can WeChat or Line your picture!
Fingers crossed...but I wasn't the winner. Hehehe
For a fun and memorable Sunday, head on to Prego to Branzo this very Sunday!!!
