Zenzero Restaurant & Wine Bar 

If Italian is your dad’s favourite cuisine, head to Zenzero where a brunch sharing platter will be offered for RM260 on Sunday, 18 June. Start with fresh bread and a wholesome soup of warm Irish oysters followed by an option of mozzarella, salmon or mussels and scallops for starters. The real dilemma will be choosing your main dish with choices like pan-seared lemon sole, roast Black Angus rib eye or the typically Italian fritto misto (deep-fried, battered seafood).
