I had a short lunch meeting with my friends at Publika a couple of days ago. Since we needed a quiet place to chat and relax while enjoying good food, Alessio came into mind and we decided to check out its recently revamped menu.
Twin Duck Spaghetti @ RM27
Alessio's all-time bestseller on the menu is no other than the signature variety of pasta served in special house made sauces. Personally, I don't usually like duck meat in my pasta because it adds greasiness to the overall dish, but Alessio has executed it very well by keeping the crispy bacon and roasted duck at the right amount of lean and fat layers.
Look at those thin, crisp bacon and beautifully moist duck slices, how can one resist that? On top of that, condiments such as sundried tomato, olives and fresh orange give an uplifting refreshing tang to the overall flavour of the dish.
Rosemary Chicken and Aubergine Spaghetti @ RM21.90
Another favourite of mine is the grilled rosemary chicken and aubergine spaghetti served in Alessio's special tomato cream sauce. The lean, meaty poultry is well-marinated and yields a tender and moist texture, but it is the creamy sauce that wows most of us with added touch of sweetness to the al dente pasta.
Charcoal Grilled Chicken @ RM22
If you are going low on carbs, then the crisp-edged grilled chicken is a great option. Exuding aromatic smoky sweetness, the chicken is good to go on its own. However, for stronger flavours, it can be enhanced by the creamy fresh mushrooms and truffle sauce.
At Alessio, you can choose to dine al fresco, or enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant in comfortable sofa seating or by the bar. Private dining area is also available here, for ultimate privacy.
Publika can be quite congested especially during weekends, but if you need a quiet, tranquil place to dine and relax, Alessio is highly recommended for its good food, impeccable service and great atmosphere. During my visit this time, I did not get to explore much of the menu, but I will definitely be back for more :)
