Tucked away amidst the many boutiques in Ipoh Garden South is a cafe that specialises in pasta, tea and desserts called Pt Grande. ‘Pt’ stands for ‘Pasta & Taste Sensation’. On the day the Ipoh Echo foodies went, their set lunch was sandwich, pasta or grilled chicken, with soup of the day which happened to be broccoli. Prices ranging from RM21.80 to RM25.80.
Try their pasta, Al Pesto, Seafood with White Wine and Squid Ink, to name but a few. The Al Pesto came with a sprinkling of pine nuts and the Squid Ink was not only al dente but also very flavourful. All for RM19.90 to RM25.90.
The menu is sectioned into: Risottos, Pan Grills, Appetizers and Desserts. Also try the Mushroom Risotto, which was nice and creamy, Grilled Salmon and Grilled Chicken, both came with a pattie of broccoli and sweet potato. For dessert, there is creme brulee and a variety of cakes like the Red Velvet Cheesecake, the double chocolate and others.
Pt Grande is at 37 Lorong Taman Ipoh 2, Taman Ipoh Selatan, 31400 Ipoh, and opens from 11.30am to 2.30pm, and 6pm to 8.30pm, and closes on Tuesdays. Tel.: 05 545 4688.
