Fuzio Bar & Ristorante, Jalan Berangan

Saturday, February 14, 2015

WL & I craved for a fantastic dinner for Valentine's Day but no wanting burn a hole in the pocket. All thanks to Groupon, he bought a voucher to dine at Fuzio Bar & Ristorante at Jalan Berangan, KL. It wasn't all that pretty driving to KL especially on a rainy Friday evening because we didn't want to get caught with a busy crowd on the actual day.

The restaurant was peaceful when we arrive even though there were a few tables occupied. Me likey! As soon as we took our seats, the waitress served us focaccia & started taking our orders. A romantic dinner ain't complete without a glass of wine. So, we ordered white wine because it is less strong for a lousy drinker like me. We were really hungry & quickly asked for our soup to be served quickly.

The soup was rich in flavour & came with good amount of seafood. This delicious soup kickstarted our appetite for the night.

Our first main is linguine seafood cooked in white wine sauce. Indeed using white wine in cooking really helps to elevate the flavour, brings balance & the right amount of acidity to any dish. Particularly in this pasta dish, the white wine blocked away the "fishy" odour or taste that we would expect from sea produce. No doubt the seafood was fresh but the hint of alcohol brought about an enjoyable eating experience.

WL was raving about the chicken skewer he had at the restaurant previously & ordered for me to try. I was pleasantly surprised how juicy & tender the chicken was even after being cooked on a hot grill. It's officially my favourite dish of this restaurant.

The next main is a funghi pizza - a combination of tomato sauce, mozzarella, button mushroom & oregano. I always have a thing for Italian pizza & this dish was spot on. Crust was thin & crispy, button mushroom was succulent. A simple pizza, yet delectable.

It wasn't WL's first time dining at Fuzio & so he insisted that I should try the more expensive dish. I let him decide our last dish. Surely he has impeccable taste, for he asked for baked cod fish. One bite & all I could blurt out was the word, WOW. This masterpiece was a concoction of flavours created with teriyaki sauce, chickpea & young papaya salad. Even more surprising was the mashed chickpea being more addictive than the fish itself. Simply brilliant!

I would definitely visit Fuzio again in the future. For a normal dine-in, it is an expensive affair. For special occasions, I would highly recommend this restaurant for it's worth every dollar spent on pampering your tummy. Rating 4.7 out of 5. Just beware of jockeys who help park your cars. They stole coins from WL's car.
