Mediterranean food in Kuala Lumpur

At the mention of Mediterranean, what comes to mind for you? Perhaps a luxury holiday by the Riviera, a Mediterranean cruise, rich bikini-clad beauties by the beach, trying your hand in a Monte Carlo casino? How about yummy Mediterranean food?

If you are hankering for Mediterranean food, no need to go so far. I was browsing the Kuali section of The Star at lunch when this article on Athena MEDITERRANEAN RESTAURANT & BAR caught my eye. This restaurant that serves three main cuisines of Mediterranean food — Spanish, Italian and Turkish - is located right in our city at The Pavilion. The Mixed Bruschetta Platter in the picture above is just a starter. This platter, big enough for two to three persons, features toasted bread with toppings like prawns, tuna fish, tomato salsa, creamy mushrooms and roasted capsicum.

Lot C3.05, 3rd Floor,
Pavilion, Jalan Bukit Bintang,
Kuala Lumpur
Tel: 03-2141 5131
Business hours: Mon to Thu 11.00am to 12.30am;
Fri 11am to 1.30am,Saturday 10.30am to 1.30am,

Kuala Lumpur is truly a food paradise. If you are on holiday here, you will be spoilt for food choice. Eat and be merry but if you are watching your diet, all that endless mall-trawling and visiting our numerous tourist attractions in and around the city would be the perfect diet pill that works fast for you. By the way, Malaysia is having her annual Mega Sale Carnival right now and will be on until August 31. Discounts can be as much as 70%. Welcome to KL!
