Can’t be beat. Its been awhile.
Was sure glad to hear Sassorosso (2166-6428), the Italian restaurant and wine retailer, has recently started gettin people high every Sunday from 11am.
I was there on time with a friend, Lena. Guests can have unlimited wine (white & red) and Italian sparkling wine, prosecco. The wine changes every week tho.
Prosecco is my new favourite bubbly. Created from predominately prosecco grapes in the northern Veneto region of Italy in the foothills of the Alps, its light, easy to drink and fun. According to a recent article in The Telegraph, in the UK these “cheap & cheerful” sort of drinks (prosecco, cava) are edging out the more well-known champagnes.
Had several glasses and got buzzing before i even looked at the menu.
Food. Hmmm. That ‘thing’ that has to enter your body in between drinking.
Found out that Lena is also a day-drunk. Haha
The deal here is appetizers are laid out out front, but the main course is your choice from the extensive menu – u got pastas, risotto, gnochi, lasagna, 17 types of pizzas (baked when u order in a wood-fired oven outdoors), grilled shit (rack, t-bone, etc), fish (including jumbo prawns which i devoured, as well as salmon), with a choice of side order and sauce, and dessert served at your table. Phew.
Godammit makin me hungry.
Feasting for a king. Will definitely hit it again.
It was the kind of sunny, breezy Sunday that just screams “Drink, bitch!” That i did, and basically stuck to d bubbly all d way.
The joint has a real chilled, cool and inviting atmosphere, with loads of natural light, a nice layout and a stylish, unpretentious feel. It used to be a person’s private home ages ago. Dude back in da day must have been a hustla to have a bungalow smack downtown.
Chef Giovanni’s been in KL for ages, i met him way back. He’s also opened a new wine bar (+pork) at Changkat BB called Giovino last week, which i plan to raid.
I’ve normally had champagne brunches at hotels like Westin & Ritz, so doing it at a restaurant is a nice change, and more personal.
Call the restaurant for reservation at the number above. Sassorosso Italian Restaurant & Wine Retailer’s Sunday brunch costs $147.20 ($128++) with booze. If u got liver failure, it costs $112.70 ($98++).
