Italia & Ribs Gastronomia @ Sri Hartamas

Italia is represented by seafood risotto, ricotta-stuffed ravioli, house-made gnocchi with bolognese sauce, tagliatelle with saffron sauce, and pizza Margherita, while ribs take the form of both beef and pork. 

The risotto, cooked with white wine, is satisfyingly creamy, while the ribs are pretty tasty too, served with a bourbon whiskey glaze in a portion to be shared for RM75.90. 

A place for a hearty meal with robust flavours, washed down with a Tuscan wine, the northeast Italian Spritz aperitif and Piedmont's Menabrea beer.

Italia & Ribs Gastronomia
A-0-5, Plaza Damas 3, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Taman Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur. Open Tues-Sun, 12pm-1030pm. Tel: 03-6211-4000

Ye Olde Smokehouse @ Fraser's Hill

With a history that dates back eight decades, Ye Olde Smokehouse has been Fraser's Hill's most atmospheric venue since 1937 for a colonial English-evoking meal of warming soups, roast chicken and sherry trifle, roughly a two-hour drive from KL.

Aida Daniya Tea House @ Fraser's Hill

Aida Daniya's setting might be its undeniable attraction, perched on a scenic slope of Fraser's Hill. But its food passes muster too, with hearty fare like fried chicken with chips and cream sauce for lunch, and the obligatory scones, cakes and pies for tea.

Atmosphere @ Chamonix, France

The charming French commune of Chamonix brims with winsome restaurants at the base of the Alps; Atmosphere is among the most, well, atmospheric, with a view of the river Arve for customers to relish while chowing down on cheesy specialities - steaming-hot Vacherin with charcuterie & potatoes, Beaufort cheese tartine with a salad, & lovely soft white cheese with honey.
