If you’re as crazy about pizzas and bubbly cocktails as we are then you will love this promotion (now till 15 May 2016), that’s currently in full swing at AQUA, Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
Priced at just RM55 nett, choose from a selection of 6 effervescent cocktails. The Aperol Spritz, the Lychee Royale, Springtime Sparkler, Ontario Maple Drop, Sweet Summer Sling or the Old Fashioned Fizz. Pair these with freshly baked, artisanal pizzas, flamed in a copper wood-fired pizza oven, and even peak hour traffic in downtown KL doesn’t seem so bad, since there’s a sanctuary now for you to get happy over a variety of pizza selections paired with refreshing Prosecco cocktails!
Our favorite pizzas to indulge in include, the Pizza di Carne – topped with beef bolognaise sauce, beef chorizo, pulled BBQ chicken, pickled chili and green peppers, Pizza Malaya – topped with tiger prawns, sambal belacan, bell peppers, ginger, pineapple and coconut milk, Pizza Primavera – topped with grilled zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, sundried tomato, arugula and basil pesto, Pizza di Chocolate for the sweet tooth – topped with Nutella, chocolate chips, marshmallows, pecan nuts, caramelized banana and vanilla ice cream, just to name a few.
This was my favourite for the evening – the Pizza Arabico, which gets its inspiration from the Turkish Lahmacun – Minced lamb, smoky eggplant, pomegranate, pine seeds, mint and garlic dip. Super delicious!
