Sundays at Sassorosso, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng

Sassorosso, a not-so-new, cute little Italian joint, is tucked in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, a bit unassuming on the outside but lovely once you enter. The good folks here (who also run Giovino's) have a Sunday lunch deal that we finally got around to trying.

We went for the semi-buffet deal (includes appetiser & soup buffet, ala carte mains and dessert). Had a hard night prior so sadly, the booze option was wasted on us (top-up RM50++ for free flow of prosecco and wines).

Here's what we missed. If you're thirsty and you know it, clap your hands!

Buffet spread of salad...

... tortilla, pasta, clams in wine broth...

...cold cuts, grilled vegetables and fresh greens. We were well stuffed by the time we worked through this. Missing in the pic was a steaming cauldron of fresh green pea soup.

Hui's Grilled Jumbo Tiger Prawns. Jumbo awright!

My Pan Fried Sea Bass with potato crust. Truffle butter sauce was a lil' weak but not a complaint really. This was well-executed.

Mei Shean's main, Pan-seared calf-liver, was a formidable deposit of vitality, oozing juice, blood on a bed of mash. Too rich for a single sitting and half of this had to go back to the kitchen.

The sweets, (clockwise from top: Millefuille, Pannacotta and Creme Brulee) went largely under-appreciated as we simply were sated beyond negotiation.

Enjoyed our afternoon at Sassorosso, and during this time, eyed plenty of families enjoying a slow, lazy ala carte lunch. The deal does come in huge portions, with great service at RM118++ per head (without the booze but with free flow of fresh juices; RM168++ with the booze, totally recommended!)

oooh, i wonder if they'd be willing to charge ONLY RM50++ for those of us who might wanna skip the food entirely (even though the spread looks great) and just spend the entire lunch consuming ONLY wine and prosecco! probably not, i guess, since we might actually be getting TOO good a bargain that way! :D

i would definitely opt for the RM50++ top up for the free flow bubbles:D for an afternoon.

Pea soup? Yet to find many places that serve a good hearty one. Some taste kinda green:P

minchow said...

Sean, exactly what I thought too! But I honestly think it's a win-win strategy for them. Once the bubbles get tucked away, focus gets a little fuzzy, you'll inevitably succumb to the spread anyway!

Missyblurkit, Hello! :-) Was pleasantly surprised to find pea soup as part of the buffet spread. It very light and absolutely set the stage for everything else!

Ah... this sounds like the perfect post-house-move Sunday spread... Hehe.
