6. Attempt the “Lady and the Tramp’s Spaghetti Meatball Challenge” at Gastro Sentral @ Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur, till 31 March 2019

From the recent Mary Poppins Returns to the upcoming The Lion King live adaptation, there seems to be a trend of revisiting Disney classics. Jumping on that bandwagon is Le Meridien KL with a challenge inspired by that iconic moment in Lady and the Tramp.

If you and your partner are fans of pasta and fast eaters too, you might be up for the “Lady and the Tramp’s Spaghetti Meatball Challenge”. Featuring 1.5kg of Spaghetti Aglio Olio, 30 pieces of meatballs, homemade fresh tomato and basil sauce and a dozen garlic bread, any couple who can finish it all within 30 minutes will essentially win that meal for free. Fail and they’ll have to pay RM158 nett per portion. Of course, you can also dine leisurely and order it at RM180 nett for the sharing portion.
