Dine in the shadow of the Colosseum (sort of): a'Roma Dinings brings the cooking of Sicilian-born chef Sergio E Viscuso to Taman Paramount, an unexpected entry on a street recognised for Chinese prawn mee, chee cheong fun & fish head noodles.
Chef Sergio makes his own fresh pastas, bolstered with hearty, robust sauces; specialities include Bucatini Amatriciana (RM43), a thick pasta prepared with an adherence to authentic traditions, with pancetta-like cured pork cheek in deep-dimensioned tomato sauce. The kitchen obliges customisation: We asked for a'Roma's signature curly pappardelle to be topped with Parma ham (RM51), producing a playfully textured combo. Speaking of textures, ask for your pasta to be cooked al dente if you favour it that way; Chef Sergio appears to cater to local patrons whom he believes prefer a slightly softer bite.
A'Roma's kitchen-produced, well-seasoned pork sausages (RM43) are very rustic, offering a chew that's simultaneously coarse & succulent, with a mouthfeel of real meat interspersed with gristle & fat. Bread here is also house-baked, while dips are concocted by Chef Sergio & his team, illustrating their attention to detail & quality. And finally, there's wine in Paramount: Glasses of Italian Torresella Merlot & Frescobaldi Remole Toscana Rosso start at RM20 during happy hours, RM25 thereafter.
