We have always thought Malaysian diners love their Italian cuisine & so do we, but is it best to go to a tiny hole-in-the-wall and enjoy inexpensive plates of pasta, or throw down hundreds of ringgits for a fixed-price menu from a celebrity chef instead? This round, we decided to go for an ala carte menu right here at Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft 🙂
Located on the first and second floor, Leonardo’s is well known for serving good fresh food with a grace, along with a spirit which Leonardo da Vinci’s intellectual curiosity employed, with a selection of delicious dishes, mostly swine (pork) related if you notice closely on the menu 🙂
Offering a contemporary Italian menu of fine porky dishes, crafted to work with the seasons, in a warm & stylish setting. Leonard’s ambiance is cosily romantic, down to earth with contented finishings of earthy brick walls and dining table with that white table cloths touch creating a posh, clean & exquisite setting.
And let our pork feast begin 🙂
Roasted Pork Belly – RM32
We started off with an order of roasted pork belly as the cravings for the crunchy bite dropped by. Crispy skin, with good amounts of fats and lean meat, best dipped into the chili & mustard served 🙂 But these were not the best we’ve had. Can skip if we were to revisit.
Grilled Pork Neck – RM26
This was lovelier. Almost resembles the bacon strips, the pork neck were fragrantly grilled with a bit of sweetness aftertaste. Perfect match with the spicy mango & cilantro salsa.
Spanish Iberico Black Pig Shoulder Loin Steak – RM75
Served medium done with truffle oil mashed potatoes & vegetables. The pink meat was really tender, soft and moist. Drenched in some sauce served alongside with the loin steak, it did more magic 🙂 Very tasty and addictive.
Fried Hokkien Noodles – RM27
It was quite an experience having Hokkien Mee in a classy restaurant like this but why not? It was good! Pricey but definitely worth a try. At least once! Haha.
Loaded with lotsa “wok hei”, this plate of “black beauty” is tasty and topped generously with pork lards (chu yau char)! Omg, so sinful yet so good! LOL.
Chocolate Volcano – RM28
served with a scoop of Haagen Dasz Vanilla ice cream. Like Opus, we love this dessert to bits, but Opus’s version is more molten. Also have the slightly crusty edges and soft centred, this dessert will ooze out melted chocolate when cut into half. However our chocolate at Leonardo’s was slightly hardened without the oozing effect. Yikes.
Nonetheless, our visit to Leonardo’s was meant to celebrate our BFF Citygal’s birthday! Actual day tomorrow! Happy Birthday dear!
