Favola means “Fable”…Le Meridien KL

The inspiring and tireless Travelling GOurmet TM tells you about a fabled ristorante in…

MALAYSIA’s capital, KL which stands for Kuala Lumpur…

FAVOLA in Italian means “fable” and here good food in authentic Italian style is no fable. Helmed by affable and talented Award winning Chef Domenico who is an Italian from Sardinia…good food in the Venetian style is de rigeur here. Sardegna is the second largest island of Italy. The largest is Sicilia…As The Travelling Gourmet TM, a celebrated Travel, Food and Wine Writer/Editor/International Wine Judge, I know many , many outstanding Chefs around the world…suffice it to say, I know a good Chef when I taste his food, capisch…

For those connoisseurs who appreciate Italian cuisine, there is much to enjoy and savour…and for those who do not understand or appreciate ‘al dente’ for example (of which there are many…), that can be arranged too…For as they say, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” nicht wahr…


Let the feast begin!
Sardinian Seafood or Frutti de mare with Pingiadedda and Fregula is like the Italian answer to the provencal bouillabaisse with complex and satisfying flavours! Orecchiette pasta with shavings of Aged Pecorino (sheep) formaggio (cheese) and Broccoli and garnished with fresh basilico (basil) leaves is to assassinate the only fattie in north korea kim jong un for. I never say ‘to die for’ like many asinine writers because when one is dead one cannot enjoy anything, like the King of Fruits, the Durian…but I digress. Anyway, my good amico Chef Domenico fondly known to his best friends as Il Duriano does this dish very well because he is from SARDINIA! 🙂

Back to the yummie food…Salmone (salmon) and Sea Bass Carpaccio with Pine Nuts and Hawaiian Salt no less is an antipasto to parachute behind enemy lines on a covert mission in Syria for. Simple yet exquisite…

So much food…so little time…Oh Madonna, tuck into Porcini Mushroom with Foie Gras lightly seared..yum yum!

DOLCI or desserts. Well, the good ol’ favorite is Tiramisu which means in English, “pick me up” and was invented by a certain lady of a house of ill repute…which I shall not mention here…Madam X created Tiramisu for her VIP clients. Incidentally, they are called “casin-o” not Casino…but that is another story…

In interessante ITALIA that I love so very much, many go for Zuppa Inglese and Macedonia but worldwide…Tiramisu is well loved. I like mine with lots of Marsala wine..I like the monogram in cicciolato powder of “F” for Favola or is it Favoloso! Buon appetito e salute! Ciao from Il Turista Buongustaio  aka Il Padrino Gastronimico 🙂


FAVOLA Ristorante

2 Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur Sentral,

Kuala Lumpur, 50470, Malaysia

Access from KLIA/Airport is so convenient with the rail link. The rail station is between Le Meridein and Hilton. The KL Hilton is not to be confused with the infamous ‘hanoi hilton’ where US POWs were tortured and killed and jailed in the Vietnam War…
