Kuala Lumpur is a food lover’s paradise and local favourites can mean different things to different people. Finding a place to dine for an evening that you would like to please your other half or friends is somehow debatable among many self-claimed food experts.
Nerovivo also known as “BlackLive” created to give you that “in home” residential feel from the redecorated private bungalow before being converted and expended into a restaurant business and offers a relaxing and inviting yet unpretentious casual dining feel. We were 10 minutes earlier as scheduled and after the brief greeting and we were sat next to the bar while two cocktails were offered to start our evening.
Under the helm of chef Melo, the cold selection on our table encompassed a <Tuna Carpaccio> which was sliced incredibly thin and palatable followed by a plate of <Cold Cuts> which says Italian, depending on which part of Italy you wish to be in.
When the <Duck Ravioli> arrived, however, we felt truly like we were tasting Chef Melo’s hands at work. It was Foie-Gras Truffle Ravioli with grilled Duck Breast slices with a dash of strawberry sauce that set the taste-buds into over-drive. The ravioli was very feathery in touch and texture with the rich foie-gras encased inside, it was a great combination that offset with the delicious duck meat.
The <Lamb Rack> was quite flavourful but a little too much fat and lacking in the surprise factor. The accompanying potato was rather a stand out instead and cooked to perfection.
The home-made <Egg Taglerini alla Vongole> with scallops and zucchini simply cooked in garlic and white wine with an olive oil base is another classic all time favorite for most Italian comfort food despite the clams and scallops used was rather too tiny in size to our perspective.
