Best Risotto in PJ

Written by Updated ago

From our local point-of-view, pizza and pasta are among the two most favoured choices when comes to Italian dishes. After all, they are instantly recognisable and easy to find. But the Italian cuisine is not just about dough and noodle. Like Malaysia, they also specialise in a rice-based dish. That rice in question is known as risotto. Think of it like an Italian version of porridge. It was a versatile meal that can alternate from a different set of ingredients (typically mushrooms, seafood or meats like beef). While it’s easy to make at home, you can also sample them in some of the restaurants or cafés found within the PJ area.

    If you don’t mind heavy carb and loves c-h-e-e-s-e, this sinful risotto – “Al Gorgonzola e Pancetta di Manzo” – is a dish you can’t refuse. A drool-worthy combination of Arborio rice and strong-flavoured gorgonzola, this risotto packs a cheesy punch. Then there’s the juicy fat of pork bacon slices, which is enough to elevate your taste bud into gastronomic heaven.
    Tips

    It’s best to make a reservation if you plan to dine during the weekends.

    Things to expect

    The restaurant also offers special menu from time to time.

    Consistency is among the key to a good risotto, and that’s what Coconut House manages to accomplish here. Their mushroom risotto is a simple, but well-combined dish of creamy chicken broth and assorted mushrooms. Alternatively, there’s the seafood risotto – a lively potpourri of mixed seafood (clams, prawns and among others), mushroom, garlic, white wine, tomato and Parmesan cheese.

    D’Italiane uses the highly-favoured Arborio rice for their risotto varieties. To begin with, there’s “Al Fungi” which packed with enough mushroom goodness (button, porcini and oyster) and delectable Parmesan cheese. For duck lovers, do try their “Affumicatto Anatra” – a creamy risotto topped with smoky taste of crispy duck. Not to be left out is “Alla Pescatore”, a seafood treasure filled with juicy prawns, clams, calamari, mussel and white fish.

    Here, you don’t have to dig deep into your wallet to enjoy a plate of risotto. Topping the list is their beef bacon risotto. The rice is cooked to perfection – creamy and not overly mushy. Every bite of the risotto is accompanied well with the succulent taste of beef bacon strips and mushroom slices.

    Although this Italian restaurant is famed for their wood-fired pizzas, one shouldn’t give the Risotto Al Funghi a miss either. The risotto is perfectly al dente drizzled with a lovely scent of truffle oil. The mushroom chunks (button, porcini and shiitake), in the meantime, enhance the overall dish with a distinctively rich and earthy flavour.

    Do you like a little alcohol in your risotto? If that’s the case, Italiannies is your place to be. Don’t worry though, since you can request the waiter to exclude the alcohol. The risotto here is packed with an abundance of ingredients. Take seafood risotto, for example – you’ll get a satisfying mix of seafood varieties including prawns, scallops, squid and mussels. The seafood pairs well with the white wine, while the risotto itself is thankfully devoid of that baby food-like mushy taste.
    Tips

    They also offer “quick lunch” set on weekdays from 11am – 4pm.

    Two Scones One CupPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    This café may have been known for its delicious scones, but don’t singled out their risotto dish yet. Their mushroom risotto is surprisingly worth trying for, especially if you’re here for the main course. The risotto itself is fulfiling enough, and has plenty of savoury mushroom slices to entice your palate.
    Tips

    You have a choice to dine al-fresco style as well.

    Things to expect

    Cosy and quiet place.

    The ingredient for Chulo’s mushroom risotto is pretty straightforward: Arborio rice, mushroom, vegetable stock and grated Parmesan cheese. But upon tasting it, the result is sublime. The risotto is firm and creamy. Meanwhile, assorted mushroom slices which scattered all over the risotto fulfil this scrumptious Italian dish.
