Italian Food


After bring my niece to Desa Park City and was heading to Kepong to tapau for my favorite coffee, my bro suddenly requested to have Italian Lunch with spaghetti for my niece. Googling around and found this place, Me Famiglia Italian Restaurant at Kepong.

La Famiglia (1)

Hidden right behind Aeon Big Kepong, under an Apartment sits this little restaurant which is like family run place. A bit rustic and nostalgia with the smell of furniture and classic table settings.

La Famiglia (2)

Find that their pricing of Lunch and Dinner set is pretty cheap.

La Famiglia (7)

Trying out Garlic Toast topped with homemade garlic butter are the classic ones. A simple starter. @ RM 4

La Famiglia (9)

Soup of the day was Mushroom Soup @ RM 5.50. For the price in this place, I find the portion is decent.

La Famiglia (8)

Linguine D’Mare @ RM 26.90 – cooked with mixed seafood and special garlic sauce.

La Famiglia (14)

Bolognese Di Manzo @ RM 12.50. Cooked with Chef special sauce.

La Famiglia (10)

For my parents, I order Grilled Lamb Shank @ RM 39.50 for them to share. Love the creamy sauce, and a little salty at the end to my liking but the meat is pretty spot on. Soft and juicy that just comes off from the bone easily.

La Famiglia (11)

Their pizza comes out to be pretty good. Hawaiian Pizza at RM 17.90 is indeed a good bargain. With homemade dough and made fresh, this is recommended!

La Famiglia (12)

La Famiglia (13)

You must end with their Classic Tiramisu @ RM 9.90. You can taste the fresh espresso at the base, creamy mascarpone in the middle and the texture is just nice. For this price I could not complain much. I think this is one of the cheapest I come across.

La Famiglia (15)

For this Italian food in Kepong, I certainly cant say much about them as in price point and portion they are very decently price. I would certainly recommend their Pizza and Tiramisu not to be miss in your orders.

This is Delicious Yee Sang as the chef is comes out this special edition. This is a combination of Nyonya and Chinese Style. The sauce is the catch and best of all it is serve mostly with fresh ingredients.

Instead of Salmon, the chef replace it with Soft Shell Crab. I must say this is one of the better Yee Sang that I have had for this festive season. Even though I only tried 4 locations.

I think Cincin Restaurant & Wine Bar is a good addition for Cheras Folks. I am not too sure is there any wine bar around but to cater for such a huge population is indeed a great addtion to the areay where folks in Cheras do not have to drive so far to hang out.

CinCin (1)

It is a two-storey restaurant located opposite Cheras Leisure Mall with ample of parking during night. Since MRT is operationg, good for those who needs to rely on the train, you can get off at MRT Taman Mutiara station and take a cab there as the restaurant is less than 1km away.

CinCin (2)

Well, all of us are like curious goat where why does the place is name cin cin and only found out that in Italian, Cincin literally translates to “Cheers”. Therefore, this place is a restaurant and wine bar also the space is big enough to cater for .private parties. The separation of space in the venue means ground floor – mainly for beer and casual dining and 1st floor – wine dining with a dress code – smart casual or can be your private event space.

CinCin (3)

Types of beers that is available besides wine.

CinCin (4)

CinCin (6)

They have a few hang out spots in this place and here is definately one of a cozy place.

CinCin (7)

Indeed Malaysian is spoilt of choices when it comes to food. Many of foodie mention Sapore is a hidden gem in Ampang. Alright what is Sapore? Sapore, means “flavour” in Italian also tag with an interesting slogan “Serving you Artisan Food and Fine Wine”. A restaurant that serve serving authentic Italian and Spanish-Mediterranean cuisine lead by Chef Fabio Ruggiero, who originates from Bari in Italy. It is hidden right behind the busy street of Jalan Ampang fly over bridge.

Sapore (8)

Every diners are serve with free entry of fresh and artisanally-made Focaccia. Any order is @ RM 5. Fragrant, soft and airy. Perfect to dip with their olive vinegar.

Sapore (9)

To those of you who have wine on your table or hand – Antipasti Tagliere for Sharing @ RM 88 is one of a platter are encourage to order as it is serve with mixture of Chorinzo Pork Sausage, Salchichon Spanish Sausage, Parma Ham, Capocollo Salami, Porchetta Pork Roast, Rillettes, and pickled vegetables. Fresh cut, love the variety of different texture and taste and if could have a white wine and red wine to go along is perfect!

Sapore (10)

This is rather interesting, as they serve this 1.1 kg Dry-Aged T-Bone Grain-Feed with Sea Salt Fiorentina Style, @ RM 238 – Served with Potato and Rucola Salad.

Sapore (11)

Sapore (12)

Spanish Sangria served with assorted fruits and red wine that go thru some fermentation process. If you love the slight pungent taste of classic sangria, you can order a glass to try it out. I like the taste of slight bitterness and dry end of it where the alcohol taste is minimal.

Sapore (13)

There are no 3 little pigs walking around. If yes there might left two as one on the table.

Sapore (14)

The Roasted suckling pig porchetta (Half : RM 198 / Full: RM 368) was one of the chef signatures and a must to try. Pig is roast to perfection where the skin is shiny and crispy. Bath with fragrant oil and thyme and a glass of their house white is not too bad too.

Sapore (15)

Comes with 4 sauces pairing. Personal favourite is the apple vinegar sauce and bbq.

Sapore (16)

Sapore (17)

Some of you might find this boring, as I find it a bit classic. Pici Pasta – served to together with porcini mushrooms and pork bolognese sauce, simple pasta but love the thickness of the pasta noodle that gives you the chewy texture.

Sapore (18)

This dish, a red wine would be perfect. Either Shiraz or a dry red. Cook to perfection for medium rare, where it is still red. The marination is perfect where a taste of mixture herbs is well balance and saltiness of seasalt is not overpowering. It is great sharing portion.

Sapore (19)

Panna Cotta @ RM 12 , along with Cake of the Day and Vanilla Creme Brulee will be my personal choice if were to order a dessert.

There are certain item which is only available in certain days, therefore best to call up to make booking on these special items. Roasted Octopus, Suckling Pig, 1.1 kg Dry-Aged T-Bone, Sevruga Caviar, and Pork Iberico Seafood Paella (Paella only available every Sun)
