Lunching at Prego, Westin KL

Wanna have a good and decent Italian lunch yet do not have the luxury of time? Go to Prego at Westin Kuala Lumpur for their executive set lunches. They have some good set lunch choices that are hearty and yet not too heavy for lunch.

For around 60 ringgit, you get to choose a combination of starter and main, or main with dessert. Since there are 2 of us, we chose a different combi each.
Prego Lunch
One of the highlights of dining at Prego is their simply divine bread basket. Served with some spicy tomato dip, one becomes full from the bread before the actual meal before you know it. Make sure that the bread reaches you warm.

Prego Lunch
We chose the Air-dried Beef served with Melon, Fig jam and Toast. Wonderful choice for the classic combination was just lovely.

Prego Lunch
As for mains, we had Mushroom Saffron Risotto. One look at the dish and you can guess that it was indeed tantalizing.

Prego Lunch
Another main that we chose was the Stuffed Pumpkin Ravioli. Sweet creamy pumpkin puree encased in slightly chewy skin. I lurrrrrve this a lot. Downside? Only 3 pieces were served. I think I can easily consume at least half a dozen of these by myself. (Now you see what I mean when I said their set lunch is rather light?)

Prego Lunch
For dessert, we wanted something light so we had Pannettone with Homemade Vanilla Ice-cream. No frills here but pair it with a cup of freshly-brewed coffee,

it is enough to satiate the sweet tooth and provides a sweet ending to a lovely meal.

Service was fast and prompt. You can easily finish lunch under an hour's time from the time you sat down at the table.

Hi rokh,
To be truthful, I have no idea cause I had the rest of the day off... ;)

Hi Joe,
If you have the Starwood card, it's 50% off RM60 for 2 persons dining (in other words, buy 1 free 1).

Hi Lianne,
It's a steal if you have the Starwood card. ;)

Hi aiwei,
THanks. It's actually an old one. I am reusing it but have a little bit of problem with it now...

Hi teckiee,
Don't remember much about the pannetone by now (aka doubt it's outstanding). Then again, pannetone tastes like to me. Dry, almost bread like.

Hi meiyen,
Yes, buy 1 free 1 if using the Starwood card. "Tai" right? :)
