Antipasti buffet for RM18++ @ Spasso Milano, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur

Yes, you read right.. RM18++ only for the antipasti buffet at Spasso Milano. When I first read about this, I couldn't believe my eyes too because it just sounded too good to be true. Having visited the restaurant this week and trying out the antipasti buffet for myself, I can just say it is one hell of a great deal.

Spasso Milano is located on the second floor of Nihonkan club, sharing the building with Pappa Rich. There is ample (free) parking spaces out at the front, which is a plus point for me.



One of the best things about this restaurant is the service. The servers were very friendly and pleasant throughout our lunch, and seem very knowledgable about the dishes and menu in general. And very kids friendly too!

The antipasti buffet is laid out near the front of the restaurant. The selection is not very extensive (approx. 15 types), however almost everything we tried that afternoon was tasty. Throughout lunch, the plates were refilled on a regular basis.

My favorite antipasti has to be the Clams with Aromatic Tomato Dressing; the clams were succulent and absolutely delicious. I filled my plate with some of these everytime I did a round at the buffet table. Other than the clams, I enjoyed the Eggs Stuffed with Smoked Salmon Cream, Vegetable Frittata, Baby Octopus in a hearty spicy tomato sauce and Grilled Zuchinni.


Clams with Aromatic Tomato Dressing - my favorite


Baked Pumpkin - Baby D's favorite


Garden Salad

Potato Croquettes


Roasted Beef with Rocket and Balsamic Dressing



Eggs Stuffed with Smoked Salmon Cream - yum!


Grilled Zucchini - simple but delicious


Fried chicken / vegetable sticks



Vegetable Frittata - pretty good


Roasted peppers


Pizza Aromatica and Garlic Foccacia - would be better if it was still warm



Here are just some of the food we tried off the buffet.





Other than the antipasti, you can also sample the soups on offer. There were 2 types available; beans soup and tomato and basil soup. Personally I prefer the beans soup as the texture was smooth and was more creamy and rich.

And for another RM3++, you can add-on a main course. Pick from 3 selections which change weekly. Hubby went for the Chicken Piccata with Lemon and Capers Sauce, and I went for the Pan Fried Dory Fillet in a hearty tomato sauce Sicilian style. Both dishes were well prepared and were served with some pasta ribbons and vegetable ratatouille. We particularly liked the ratatouille which was tangy and appetizing.

The choices for dessert was pretty limited. You can either have fresh fruits or cakes from the buffet. I found the cakes to be most disappointing as most of the cakes had a very dry texture and did not have any distinctive taste to them, though there were three types available that afternoon. Thankfully, there was also panna cotta and this was simply delicious! Served in shot glasses, I must have helped myself to 5 of them. Definitely a must try!

Lemon cake, carrot cake and orange cake - all look pretty samey

Sinful panna cotta :) Must try!
