Best Risotto in KL

Written by Updated ago

With only a handful of ingredients (Arborio or Carnaroli rice are commonly used here, along with broth of your choice, vegetables/seafood, fresh herbs and cheese), whipping up a risotto is supposed to be an easy dish to make at home. But beneath its deceiving simplicity, risotto requires a lot of patience and proper skill to make this right. The rice needs to be stirred constantly, or you’ll risk sticking at the bottom of the pot and burn. Like pasta, the key to a good risotto is al dente. Not too mushy or starchy. If homemade risotto sounds like a chore, you can always savour them at the Italian restaurant. Here’s where you can find them around KL.

    If you’re looking to savour risotto, Quivo offers a limited but satisfying choice here. First up, there’s the Roasted Chicken & Wild Mushroom Risotto. Infused with fresh herbs and delectable Parmesan cheese, every mouthful of this creamy risotto is a delight. The chicken is roasted to perfection and blessed with tender meat. As for Saffron Seafood Risotto, the buttery prawns are both fresh and succulent. The Arborio rice, in the meantime, matches well with the juicy saffron tomato sauce and the mascarpone cream.

    At Tujo, seafood risotto is the only risotto dish offered in the menu. Even so, it does not disappoint. The Arborio rice is perfectly al dente, with the right bite and texture in its grains. The tanginess of the tomato broth complements well with the savoury risotto. The mixed seafood (cuttlefish, prawns and scallops) are both fresh and juicy, while basil pesto helps enhance the overall flavour.

    Look out for their set lunch promotion.
