This new kid on the block of KL chic dining place has been around for about a year in KL, and has been a great success with their second branch opening in Damansara Uptown on the 3rd September.
This chic casual dining restaurant chain , made their name in the Indonesian market since its opening in 2002 and Malaysia is their first foreign market outside Indonesia, with their flagship restaurant located in Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. In Indonesia itself, Izzi has 14 restaurants, and is still counting.
The Damansara Uptown branch occupies 2 lots . One half with an open kitchen concept, great for looking at what they are cooking up ( also in order for them to maintain their highest level of hygine ) and free smeels, but it can be a little tad warm here. For a cooler environment, its better to sit next door wheres its cooler.
The decorations in this chic restaurant very much emphasize on colours and contemporary design ,which makes its a really nice hanging out place for all kinds of dining or partying . With free wifi and reading materials, makes it a really nice place to relax, grab a drink and enjoy the fine array of dishes available from steaks, to pizzas ,pasta and Asian favourites.
Being lunch and wanna something light...and being a pasta lover, my eyes focussed on the pasta selection. It has a good selection of the ever green classic selection of bolognese, carbonara ,macaroni and lasagna's. Really hope that they could come out with something new and interesting here. Perhaps some fusion tasting pasta's such as pasta with Tomyam sauce or pasta with miso flavoured sauce ????
Top : My usual Spaghetti Bolognese Below : Prawn Linguine with garlic and red chilli
Gloria's prawn linguine with garlic and red chilli (RM17.80) came tossed with dried chilli flakes, olive oil and some garlic. But she found it a bit in the bland side, more salt perhaps ?? My Spaghetti Bolognese however , is good enough to earn a respectable 7/10 on my taste scale. But could be better if the serving was larger !!!!!!!!
Good news for family dining here, that the child gets to eat free with every main course the adult ordered. Inconunction with their opening of Damansara branch they are now offering up to 75% discount off meals ( excluding alcohol,pastries ) for dine in from 12 - 18 September 2007 for HSBC Visa/Master card holders.
