Changkat Bukit Bintang's coolest new venue tackles Italian cooking with a twist, spotlighting small plates for snacking & sharing - start with the street-food-style fritters filled with a creamy blend of zucchini & feta cheese (RM14), then ponder the sticky pork ribs boosted by a flavourful marinade of Italian double-malt beer (RM26) & the deep-fried burger, a fun creation comprising a tender house-made beef patty wrapped in a hollow ball of dough (RM28; served with absolutely addictive fries).
Even the pastas come in petite portions, like the ravioli with sliced duck breast in mushroom sauce (RM24). Tim's head chef Marco & general manager Simone both hail from Rome, so a trip to this restaurant wouldn't be complete without trying the Italian capital's speciality of carbonara, a rich treat with pancetta, egg, cheese & black pepper (RM18); the potato gnocchi with gorgonzola, walnuts & sage are worthwhile too, with the fresh-tasting dumplings prepared in Tim's kitchen (RM18). Even the drinks represent Italy pretty well - the Tim Tonic is constructed with Poli Marconi 46 Italian gin & Recoaro tonic water (RM26). Italian craft beers are available, produced by two brothers in Tuscany; wrap up your meal with Bologna's Amaro Montenegro - if you can't make it to Italy, make Italy come to you at Tim.
