It used to be known as the “Sunday Bubbly Brunch” … a very popular affair at Prego in The Westin Kuala Lumpur. Recently, it has been rebranded as “Bubbalicious”, in line with the concept featured in over 5 different Westins throughtout Asia Pacific. I was privileged to attend the launching of Bubbalicious recently.
Bubbalicious gives a whole new meaning to bubbly brunches as diners will be induced into the mood by Bubbalicious’ own signature bubble girls who will meet you in the lobby! After this unique welcome, you will be served a surprising bubble-inspired welcome drink before stepping into the smart interiors of Prego.
I like how the good people in The Westin has thoughtfully set aside space for the young ones. There’s a special all-new Bubbalicious Kids’ Club area set up to ensure the little ones are kept entertained while their parents enjoy a leisurely meal. Located at the lower lobby and set with a different theme every Sunday and manned by trained nannies, the just-for-kids buffet selection will keep the young ones satiated and occupied.
At the Prego Sunday Bubbalicious Brunch, you will get to dine on not only traditional Italian dishes and old Prego classics, you now can also sample their modern takes on Italian cuisine, inspired by bubbles and good times, spanning a huge spread of popular Italian-style breakfast and lunch items.
Prego’s figs are famous, whether served fresh or cooked. So be sure not to miss these!
Start off by taking your pick from a myriad of refreshing salads, delectable cold cuts, cold seafood, freshly shucked oysters, baskets of freshly baked breads and some heart-warming soups. The antipasto selection is delightfully varied. Even when I was still trying to sample the portions of these on my plate, the chefs came round offering trays of pizza, pasta and grilled meats.
The chefs and serving crews go round tirelessly offering endless types of barbequed meats, sausages, roasts, from penne to angelhair and all kinds of woodfire-baked pizzas.
The restaurant has kept its beverage choices interesting to match the sumptuous food. Apart from the usual fruit juices and soft drinks, diners get to sample their range of mocktail concoctions and Bubbly Bellinis. For the more serious drinkers, there is a delicious range of white and red wines, imported beers and the divine Mumm Champagne. This luscious champagne alone makes the brunch so worthwhile.
No meal is ever complete without desserts. In Prego, you can go nuts with the delectable trays of sweets on display. There’s their famous Dessert Bubbles Spoon Wall for yoghurt and raspberry bubbles, creme brulee and cointreau bubbles, jelly bubbles, popping chocolate bubbles and other delightfully-flavoured bubbles.
Over at the Boozy Bubbles and Shots Bar, smiling crew are busy combining desserts and classic cocktails to create classic cocktail dessert shots such as Breakfast Martini, Sidecar, Brandy Alexander and Mango Daiquiri, amongst others. I got quite heady trying each one out!
