Enorme Restaurant is a home-grown eatery that serves up hearty Italian cuisine with a selection of western and European delicacies in Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur. Accessible within a 10-minute taxi ride from KL Sentral Station, this trendy spot stands out from most Italian restaurants in Kuala Lumpur as diners can enjoy reasonably-priced porcine dishes as well as some great imported wines.
Interior-wise, Enorme exudes a chic and contemporary theme with an open bar and kitchen area, black and white artwork, hanging filament lights, wooden communal tables, red and black seats, and floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of natural light.
Enorme’s extensive all-day menu consists of antipasti, pizzas, pastas and other Italian favourites such as lasagne, pork rack and duck confit. For starters, try the Portobello (RM23), which consists of deep-fried battered Portobello mushrooms, served with sautéed chicken strips, rocket salads, and sliced onions in au jus.
Also highly recommended are the wood-fired pizzas, with toppings ranging from classic Hawaiian and al funghi to fruitti de mare and tonna mornay. Our favourite, however, is the Carbonara pizza (RM13 for five-inch), which comes with streaky bacon, heavy cream, button mushrooms, Italian parsley, mozzarella, and runny egg yolk on top. Do note that portions served here are rather generous, so sharing is encouraged.
Lastly, Enorme restaurant’s signature deconstructed tiramisu is a definite must-have for dessert. Beautifully presented on a white platter, we love the distinctly strong presence of marsala wine which brings out the flavours of the mascarpone, cream, sponge finger crumbs, coffee jelly and coffee sauce.
For drinks, there’s a good range of cocktails, beers, as well as white and red wines by the glass available as well as coffee, fruit juices, and smoothies (RM15) with flavours such as avocado, Oreo, peanut butter banana, and watermelon.
Overall, Enorme’s modern decor, relaxed atmosphere and extensive food-and-beverage menu makes it a must-visit for delicious Italian fare that doesn’t make a huge dent in your wallet.
