Urbano e Fresco @ Publika, K.L.

We got another new kid on the block. He is Italian and you can call him Urbano e Fresco. You might get charmed by his Italian accent with all the pizza, salad, panini and pasta. 
The decor was clean and stylish. 
This is such a creative idea
Chili Chili 
The meal started off with some bread served with extra virgin oil and balsamic vinegar. Both condiments were glossy and rich.
Imported balsamic vinegar and extra virgin oil from Italy. 
Cabo San Lucas Salad (RM17.90) - Romaine lettuce tossed with prawn, avocado, cheery tomatoes, roasted onions, tomato salsa and dressed with balsamic vinegar. The prawns were huge and fresh, adding a nice crunch to the salad. 
Bruschetta (RM9.90) - Toasted baguette bread with extra virgin olive oil, fresh tomatoes, onions and basil leaves. The diced tomatoes were extremely juicy and sweet, surrounded by quality ingredients.
Acapulco Pizza (RM26.90) - Hand tossed pizza topped with chicken pepperoni, fresh chillies, jalapeños, marinated chicken breast, red onion and mixed capsicum. The edges of the crust were nice and crunchy, with a little bit of charring. 

Verdict: SOMEWHAT SMITTEN

    1. Yes, prices are very reasonable too. Btw, try to go there during lunch time, its more of a lunch place than dinner.

  13. I seldom heat to Publika but seems like this place is becoming a food haven. Among all I will certainly add the chillies on to the pizza and yes, I too enjoy bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I had my share of Italian food during my trip there but sad to say, I am not into Italian food and all the way for Asian food.

  15. I was thinking of having a light dinner of soup to combat today's crazy hot weather. I read this post and am now heading over for dinner. The light soupy dinner is flushed down the drain!

  17. It would be good if they sprinkle some feta cheese on the bruschetta to give some edge. Nevertheless, the dishes look good!
