It's All About Italian @ Hugo's on 6, Best Western Premier Dua Sentral, KL

From now until 30 June 2013, Hugo’s On 6 at Best Western Premier Dua Sentral is running an Italian promotion whereby authentic Italian dishes are prepared using the finest ingredients and authentic Italian recipes. Choose from a range of pizzas, pastas, tapas or desserts from RM15++ to RM60++. This promotion is available for both lunch and dinner. 

We were invited here this week to sample some of the delectable Italian offerings. Hugo's on 6 is the hotel's signature restaurant and is located on the 6th Floor of the hotel by the infinity pool. The menu is a combination of Mediterranean & Asian cuisine. It boasts great views of KL cityscape, including views of KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers. Guests can choose to dine al fresco or in the restaurant.

The pizza counter is situated in the restaurant next to the bar, so diners can hop over and watch the chefs prepare the pizzas.  While our pizzas are being prepared, we sampled some of their starters and tapas.

The chef is preparing is our pizza... looking forward to it!

  And in it goes into the oven..


Hubby was craving for some hummus (RM15), so this definitely hit the spot. It was nice and smooth, topped with sweet Spanish paprika and chopped parsley and served with lovely grilled pita bread. We also had the Roma tomato with mozzarella cheese salad (RM24) which was light and refreshing. Out of all the appetizers, my favorite was the gambas pil pil tapas (RM25) - fresh and juicy tiger prawns cooked in extra virgin olive oil, garlic and dried chillies. I especially liked dipping the crusty bread in the spicy sauce - oh so good!

Now for some Italian dishes - the pizzas were first to arrive. I love a thin crust pizza with lots of cheese and toppings and they do it really well here. The Pizza Quattro Stagioni (RM35) was topped with homemade tomato sauce and four different toppings, which are button mushrooms, olives, artichokes and turkey ham as well as a whole load of mozzarella cheese. Mmmm yum! Hubby was particularly fond of the olive topping while I liked the turkey ham.

We also tried Pizza Hugo's (RM56), a signature creation here is made with creamy pesto sauce, grilled eggplant, gorgonzola and Parmesan cheese. The Pizza with Pepperoni (RM36) was topped with homemade fresh tomato sauce, beef pepperoni, oregano and mozzarella cheese. It's great to see the pizzas freshly made to order, it makes all the difference.


Lots of cheese! Yummeh.

The pasta selection here is not huge, but the restaurant manager recommended an off-menu special - spaghetti aglio olio with pan seared cod fish. A nicely prepared pasta dish, and I thought the cod was a really addition with its lovely flaky flesh.



A trio of desserts end our meal on a sweet note. I like the rustic presentation of the tiramisu (RM22), served with an almond praline. The orange and lemon tart (RM19) with rosewater cream was tart and appetizing, while the Creme Catalana (RM15), also known as creme brûlée was rich and creamy, though the brûlée part was missing.

  2. It's a good thing you put the prices, or I would have thought this place would be way out of our budget! Would they entertain us if we asked for the spaghetti with cod fish too? :D
