There’s always something delicious going on at Prego, the Italian restaurant of The Westin Kuala Lumpur. This is partly due to the fact that its large open kitchen is right there at the centre and everything the chefs do can be observed by the diners. Another reason is because Chef Marco De Cecco is so passionate about his cooking and the passion rubs off onto the crew. Chef Marco is always bustling around the kitchen with efforts geared towards bringing back Italy to Bukit Bintang curating new dishes representing his origins, most of which stem from his personal childhood memories and travels across Italy.
We have tried some of Chef Marco’s new dishes not too long ago – details of those are highlighted here.
Prego now serves an Afternoon Tea from Monday to Saturday starting at 2.00pm. It’s perfect for that tête á tête that you’ve been wanting to do with your best friend or just for a little respite after a hectic shopping spree in Bukit Bintang. Priced at RM98nett for 2 pax, it’s a delightful ensemble of sweet and savoury goodies. Sandwiches, pastries and cakes are arranged prettily on a circular vertical tray, to be nibbled and savoured with pots of your preferred tea. I think this is the best way to spend any afternoon!
Freshly baked breads are always available at Prego – best eaten with just a dip of Extra Virgin Olive Oil mixed with some Vinaigrette!
This is what we had on our beautiful tray… exquisite delicate bites, Italian-style…
