Sapore MY

I had Sangria which has a little bit of alcohol in it which was just okay to warm up my appetite.

The imported cold cuts was one of my favorites. You can’t get wrong with this after your tapas and a little zip of Sangria. Definitely made me all warmed up for the actual main dish. One thing worth noting is that the cold cuts can be shared for two persons but depending on your appetite of course.

The Main Dishes

Seafood Paella - Sapore MY

First was the Seafood Paella. I love how it is not salty and spicy but just right to my taste buds. The meat in the rice made it more like the paella that i grow up with. Shrimp was cooked perfectly which is a good thing.

Pork Shoulder

The “Pork Shoulder” was something different. I have not tasted the way how it was cooked. The meat was tender and satisfyingly tastier than what I imagined it to be. Well done Chef Fabio for this wonderfully created dish.

They have wide variety of wines

Now let us talk about the restaurant for a moment. I think I need to mention this even though this is a food review. It’s because the ambiance is much important than the food. You would not be able to enjoy the food if the ambiance sucks so I decided to mention it. Let’s start with the photos.

The restaurant is found along a stretch of restaurants in Ampang and they can be easily identified by their bold name Sapore and the red color on their front. While inside has yellow on it. Another way to know its them is when you are greeted with lovely ladies which are very pleasant and accommodating, you know you’re at the right place.

The lights inside are not fully spread out which I thought was intended to bring a tone down to the lights making it more romantic and exclusive so you can focus on your conversation with family and loved ones and most of all, so you can focus on your food.

The Desert

The Tiramisu was just right to end the whole meal. By the time We are at the desert, I was already full and just to seal it, I had to taste the desert. It did not disappoint me and it was just right portion.

The Chef

It was an honor to photograph Chef Fabio and his kitchen staff. I didn’t manage to take photos of the staff that meet the customers because they were busy at that time. It was such a joy to see their kitchen and they allowed me to take their picture from where they work.

This will not be our only review for Sapore because they have wide variety of dishes that they offer ranging from Italian to Spanish and so on. We will definitely do more reviews of the rest which are not shown here very soon.

Once again thank you Chef Fabio and Sapore for such a great Aperitivo experience.
