As night descends over Bukit Bintang, Rococo transforms from a daytime cafe into an intimate evening eatery that exudes a soothing sense of mystique & romance, swathed in sultry shadows. The restaurant recently introduced a five-course set dinner selection that draws heavily from European influences, priced at RM150 per person - contact 012-974-0192 for reservations.
The meal kicks off with a soup as an appetiser - choose either a pumpkin broth shored up with a tiger prawn or a mushroom soup, both reasonably creamy & freshly kitchen-made. Then comes the salad, with possibilities that include the savoury-juicy 'Chi Chi Chicken' with mixed leaves or (our personal preference) a textured quinoa salad with avocado, corn & berries.
From the list of starters, our best bet is the foie gras, lusciously flavoursome. Alternatively, the kitchen also does a competent beef carpaccio. The main course comprises mainly pastas in classic preparations like vongole, pesto, bolognese or carbonara.
Wrap up with sweet treats - both the carrot cake & the unique red velvet cheese brownie (dense & crumbly) are worth the calories. Wine is available at RM30 a glass or RM55 for two glasses. Hotel guests can enjoy a 10 percent discount off the food set. Thanks to the Rococo team for having us here.
