Hiding at the back of main road, the Palazzo sit quietly, remain unnoticed until the day i am invited to participate in MakanVenture event. Served Western cuisine and a number of low to mid range wines, the restaurant is decorated fully focusing on bringing out the modern western gourmet atmosphere, armed with relaxing English musical, it is definitely a good place to relax while shaking the glass with red wine.

We are also informed by the restaurant owner prior to the start of the event that every rainy day, there will be 30% discount for all dishes, i guess it is crowd puller during rainy days as most restaurant might be empty during rainy day. The first dish to arrive, Pumpkin soup. I am quite impress with the rich and thickness of the soup. Probably one of the best tasted in Klang Valley, however the set back is that the temperature of the soup is not high enough and the absence of crunchy biscuit make the dishes incomplete or rather not satisfying enough. Spanish Patas, come in second. The cracker is quite crunchy but a little bit hard to bite. Overall tasting is quite good, with my tongue overwhelmed with sour taste. If the cracker can be made softer and remain its crunchiness then i believe this dish can be great as well. Probably one of the best meal starter, the restaurant has to offer. A full plate of vegetables with smoked salmon, poured with thousand island sauce, made the salad so refreshing. With every chew of the vegetable, it comes with cold fresh taste. The smoked salmon there is to add some spice to the dish, eating the vegetable with the salmon, it is just smokin good. Probably one of the dishes favorite by almost everyone, the roasted pork is said to be one of the signature dish that the Palazzo has to offer. Not overly oily and yet the pig skin is so crunchy that we all literally heard the voice of pig skin crunching inside our mouth. The meat flavor is great, not the usual mouth full of oil type roasted pork. Highly recommend by the restaurant manager, this dish had a special name "I Love Ribs" we need to wear glove to enjoy this dish, it is best to enjoy this with your hand holding the ribs and eat it. Never mind about the dish making your hand dirty, we are told to backdate to tradition. The ribs however aren't as best as i expected, probably because i tried the one in Bali before. It is not as sweet as it should be, ribs flavoring is not as strong as expected as well. However the experience of cutting the ribs by ourselves is quite good, at least now we know how to cut open ribs in a professional way. This grill fish comes in second half of the event, eating by itself you can taste the freshness of the fish meat. Fortunately the dish came with the mint sauce, dipping into it, it just added the spice to the whole dish, fresh fish meat plus with strong mint taste, taste just good and great. Seafood pasta is the "wow" dishes that everyone like to finish, lots of muscle there. However the sauce is not well prepared and does not bring the good taste of the muscle. The sauce is sweet but it is just too overwhelmed and i literally cannot taste the muscle, however some savior is the prawn, it will just blend well with the sweet sauce however i won't say this is a good dish though the ingredient is exceptionally generous. Comes almost at the last dish, the pork chop is good on the texture but not on its flavor. Mash potato however is good, very well done on both its flavor and not overly creamy.
Services rendered by the restaurant manager is great and friendly, definitely come again for wine gathering with friends.
