Ora Dining's Valentine's menu hits all the right notes for the food of love. 

For starters, dive deep into two mouthwatering molluscs - both the Hokkaido Scallop Toast or Fine de Claire Oyster will be served to patrons.

The Hokkaido Scallop Toast is fantastic foreplay for the palate: Plump, fresh scallops sprinkled with white sturgeon caviar promise a tantalising taste of the sea's treasures, cushioned with gorgeous green goddess dressing on toast.

The Fine de Claire Oyster delivers delicately nuanced brininess, its soft aphrodisiacal flesh blanketed in beautifully shimmering saffron tomato gelée and ponzu vin with a faintly floral zestiness.

Since launching in November, Ora has become a neighbourhood favourite for pastas. Fans will be satisfied to see an entire course devoted to pasta on this Valentine's menu - select from the irresistibly rich agnolotti, swathed in Parmigiano emulsion, showered with figs, smoked ricotta and a generous garnish of shaved black truffles, or the even more decadent Alla Chittara Lobster Pasta (supplement +RM50), an Italian classic reinterpreted with international flourishes, bathed in sultry shoyu uni cream, crowned with Canadian lobster and dill oil.

For the climactic course, choose from beef or fish, both equally enticing.

Ora tackles the Tournedos with its triumphant take on the Rossini (supplement +RM50) - full-bodied Australian tenderloin, layered with pan-seared foie gras for a moist, melt-in-the-mouth marvel, rounded out with black truffle jus and seared cabbage. 

Alternatively, the Seared Red Snapper is elaborately enchanting, swimming into our hearts with thick, juicy fillets of snapper, soaked in umami-saturated dashi beurre blanc caviar and studded with scintillating roe.

Dessert ends the menu on a dreamy, creamy note. 

Ora is justifiably confident that this Sticky Date Pudding is a smash hit - its heartwarming base, lusciously indulgent, is coupled with banana ice cream and smoked cream, sending us out into the night on a heavenly high.

The Valentine's menu includes a complimentary welcome drink for two persons. Patrons can add RM200+ for a bottle of red or white wine (Care Tinto Sobre Lias Garnache Syrah, Spain or La Champagne Sauvignon Blacn, France).
