Here’s a chance to kick back and relax on a Sunday amidst a setting that aims to depict the Italian caffe culture.
M Marini Grand Caffè & Terrazza is serving up its new Gourmet Sunday Brunch in a classic European ambience that features hand-picked silk fabric chairs, antique accessories and a glossy marble bar.
Located near KLCC, the eatery’s elegant features include high ceilings, glass walls, indoor and outdoor spaces as well as a garden.
A glass of prosecco is given complimentary for each adult who orders the brunch which includes pastas, pizzas, cook-to-order mains with chicken, lamb and beef dishes and desserts.
While we were enjoying our prosecco and the slow yet catchy music in the background, juicy and tender Pan-seared Chicken Roulade made the moment even more enjoyable.
Stuffed with turkey ham, spinach, gorgonzola cheese, and served with mashed potatoes and caper sauce, the chicken dish was my favourite among the mains of the day.
The meat is juicy while the cheese and sauce complement the taste well.
For lamb buffs, the juicy Boneless Lamb Shank is a must-try as the sauteed vegetables and mashed potatoes goes well with the huge portion of meat.
One of the well-cooked dishes of the day was the Norwegian Salmon Fillet.
The roasted fillet is served with teriyaki sauce, mashed potatoes and fresh greens.
The teriyaki sauce was a real treat as its sweet and spicy flavour made the crispy layer of the fish more flavourful.
Beef zealots can opt for the remarkable Wagyu Beef Cheek served with truffled mashed potatoes and beef jus.
Diners can choose to savour the all-time favourite spaghetti carbonara with smoked duck breast, or, try the Pasta Mentaiko, a delicious spaghetti aglio olio with spicy cod fish roe and nori.
For something to share, there is pizza with seasonal vegetables as well as pizza with turkey ham, pineapple and onions.
There will be a selection of antipasto while those looking for salad options can customise their own at the salad bar.
Italian desserts such as the Classic Tiramisu, Mini Fruit Tarts, Panna Cotta, Crème Caramel and Chocolate Mousse are available to end the brunch on a sweet note.
The Gourmet Sunday Brunch is priced at RM98++ per person for adults and RM58++ per person for children aged seven to 11. Children aged six and below dine for free.
The brunch runs from 11.30am to 2.30pm every Sunday and there is also an add-on drinks option of wine and beer for an additional RM70++.
