Dataran Cascades is pretty new, in fact, it’s so new that we almost missed it. It’s not fully tenanted yet and there are just a few eateries within the vast building. One of them is of course Brazzo, located on Level LG, fronting the colourful water fountain. Guests in Brazzo get a visual feast every night when the lights and water come alive at the fountain.
The al fresco dining space between the two air-conditioned segments of Brazzo
Brazzo is not just an eatery – it’s a gastropub, steakhouse and wine bar all rolled into one seamless space. Besides an enclosed air-conditioned section, guests can choose to chill-out at the al fresco dining space and bar right beside the restaurant. Dark wood accents lent an air of sophistication to the interior of the restaurant despite its casual set-up.
Brazzo’s menu listed selections of premium cuts of beef, lamb, chicken and seafood. Italian staples like risotto and pizzas are also included. Kicking off our dinner was a platter of gorgeous plump Hokkaido scallops served with tangy tomato salsa. Sweet and bouncy in texture, those scallops were something to indulge in especially when you are in a celebratory mood.
XL Hokkaido Scallops with Balsamic Tomato Salsa (RM42.80)
To match the indulgent mood, we decided on a Chilled Lobster Tail Salad (RM59.80) as nothing beats the wholesome sweetness of fresh seafood with crisp vegetables. The lobster chunks were incredibly good and we almost ordered a 2nd bowl.
We decided to have one more seafood item before moving on to the meats. The Oven-baked Atlantic King Codfish (RM78.80) turned out to be only average. Understandably the Atlantic codfish was frozen stock, hence taste and texture-wise, it could have been better.
The meat dishes were very well executed. After all, Brazzo prides itself as a steakhouse. The premium NZ lamb rack was meaty and tender. The light spices and herbs rubbed into the meat before grilling toned the gamey taste a bit and all was good.
Char-grilled AACO 1824 Grain-fed Fillet Mignon (RM66.80)
Porky fans would go crazy with the Iberico Pork Cheek which was seared and sliced thinly, exposing the perfect layers of lean & fatty meat. The marbling was very even and each bite of the meat was exquisite. There are several more porky items on the menu like BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Spicy Rub Grilled Pork Ribs and German Pork Platter, just to name some. We definitely need to rope in more dining partners to go back and try these!
When you are pressed for time at lunch, worry not as Brazzo has some very decent Lunch Sets from RM12.90 nett. So, if you are in the vicinity, pop by for some of these.
We were way too full to have any dessert that evening and that’s reason to go back another day.
