Al-Fungi Aglio Olio Spaghetti

Al-Fungi Aglio Olio Spaghetti has a very pleasant smell of herbs with generous chunks of fungi all over. Coupled with tender and flavorful chicken breasts, it suits my appetite very well as it’s not as spicy as the usual Aglio Olio I’ve tried before.

Spicy Seafood Asiana Pasta

What do you get when Italian food meets Belanga’s local touch? It’s Spicy Seafood Asiana Pasta! Pasta wrapped in creamy tom yam paste and accompanied by prawns and mussels, it certainly made me salivate! The sour and spicy taste makes it a good appetizer too!

Grilled Lamb

Grilled lamb is served with Thai lemongrass sauce, meclum salad with homemade salad dressing and it comes with tapioca chips. Having eaten really tough lamb meat before, I had phobia towards it. Surprisingly, this lamb meat is nicely cooked and there’s no hint of toughness.

Pan-seared Norwegian Fresh Salmon Steak

Another masterpiece from Belanga is Pan-seared Norwegian Fresh Salmon Steak with pineapple sauce, mashed sweet potatoes and tossed garden green salad. They’ve replaced the usual mashed potatoes with mashed sweet potatoes in order to blend in some local taste and I can tell that it’s a great combination!

Avocado Shake

Avocado shake is a beverage that is blended with vanilla and fused with chocolate syrup. It has an addictive buttery taste that no word can describe.

Ice Teller
Price: RM 9.90

This Ice Teller is bursting flavours of jackfruit, avocado, coconut and buah kabung! The goodness of fruits!

As a conclusion, I’ll be back here for more pastas as I really love the fusion between Malay food and Italian pasta. Not everyone can do this successfully and I think they did a great job in this. Hope they’ll come out with more fusion dishes soon!
