Spanish delights and Italian fares don’t always come in one. But Sapore made them together, like 2 bff-s.

Sapore

The newest face on the Persiaran Ampang neighbourhood, this is an Italian Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant that serves Artisan food and fine wine; all about Jamon Iberico, Tapas and Wine! Chef Fabio Ruggiero, the man behind has cleverly blended both types of cuisine and so; you will manage to find Spanish and Italian dishes here in one place. While many may find that artisan food and fine wine always burn the pocket a huge hole, I can assure Sapore will not.

We started off the dinner with Chilean White Wine – Sauvignon Blanc

Sangria Red Wine (Rm 28)
Come to a Spanish place must have their sangria. Love their concoction of sangria that dosed with lots of fruits, sweet and tangy.

Basket of Focaccia (Rm 5 for additional portion)
Homemade focaccia was served once we were seated. The bread texture was firm and chewy, never floury and what stayed in the oral cavity was the aromatic scent of the bread with touches of herbs. Great to go with lots of dishes offered here such as pork lard, anchovies and ham. Top up Rm 5 for additional order. You will find it worth every cent spent.

Lardo Flavoured Tuscany Pork Lard (Rm 25)
What a new experience to me. Having fine cuts of piggy’s fat on the bread, to go with the white. So good! It was almost transparent, as thin as paper, seasoned with rock salt and black pepper, aged for 2 months and equipped with the texture that melted just right on the tongue.

Anchovies marinated in Olive Oil (Rm 22)

SAM_6634

Prosciutto di Parma Ham (Rm 30)
Another must have. Thin slices of lovely Italian dry-cured ham, married well with the focaccia. More bread please!

SAM_6646

Capocollo Dry-cured Pork Shoulder (Rm 25)
More cold cuts of meat. I have to say, Sapore serves a good and wide selection of cold cuts that suit your taste buds. Moreover, the meats are really fine.

Tapas is always a must when dining in the Spanish place. Potato Cake Apulia Style (Rm 14) & Eggplant Parmigiana Style (Rm 18).

Pork Ribs Barbeque Sauce (Rm 25)

SAM_6682

Queso Manchego with honey (Rm 22)
Cheese made in La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of manchega breed. Very additive especially eat it with honey dips. How I wish they were all mine. Haha.

SAM_6665

Rigatoni Rosticciana Tube Pasta & Stewed Iberico Pork Ribs, Tomatoes (Rm 38)
Made al dente and the stew Iberico Pork ribs was tender and burst with mega flavours.

SAM_6674

Spaghetti Carbonara (Rm 28)
Egg yolk, Guanciale Ham and Pecorino. Rich and creamy, a plate to share.

SAM_6678

Spaghetti Aglio Olio Crumbs & Anchovies Pecorino and Baby Tomatoes (Rm 26)
Slightly on the drier side, or perhaps we left it too long for photo taking. The aglio olio was not what I fancy most.

Next up, we couldn’t help to dig in this beauty.
Roasted suckling pig (Rm 368 for a whole pig; Rm 198 for half pig)
Crackling crispy on the outside and tender on the inside; a bit of the sauce and mustard level up the the flavour of this suckling pig. Remember to call up and reserve beforehand as it is an off menu item.

Panna Cotta (Rm 12)
With the doink doink wobbly texture; sweet but not overwhelming.

SAM_6702

Vanilla Crème Brulee (Rm 16)

SAM_6704

Tiramisu with Coffee & Kalua (Rm 20)
Richly flavoured with espresso and coffee liquor; love that bitter aftertaste that lingered round the oral cavity.
