Blu Med @ Mid Valley
January 17, 2013
Showcasing a Mediterranean-inflected menu that orbits from cicchetti-like plates of bite-sized seafood to hearty platters of pasta for sharing, Blu Med could reinvigorate Mid Valley Megamall with a red-hot dining experience once it opens by months end.
Many thanks to Blu Med for this preview of its still-under-construction, two-level premises, split into a casual cafe on the boulevard & a more upscale space upstairs thatll offer the creations of celebrated chef Yasuhiro Sasajima, founder of Kyotos Il Ghiottone Italian eatery.
Blu Med will placate a wide swathe of customers: breakfast seekers hungry for Eggs Florentine at 8 a.m., lunch crowds hunting for cheerful Italian fare, as well as the after-work clientele wholl revel in pizzas, cocktails & bar snacks.
Everythings still a work in progress, but very soon, a floor-to-ceiling wall of candles might prove Blu Meds centerpiece, complete with bottle-composed chandeliers.
Despite a kitchen thats not fully ready, Blu Med managed to provide its preview guests with an evenings repast of buffalo mozzarella & plum tomatoes ...
... crunchy-grainy wild rice topped with soft aubergine & chewy-fleshy hirame carpaccio ...
... slick, slippery spaghetti with sea bass & grilled veggies in tomato sauce ...
... & espresso-accented panna cotta, all spurring our interest further in Blu Meds future.
Blu Med is spearheaded by seasoned F&B professionals whose passion makes us certain that this will turn into one of Mid Valleys best restaurants.
Blu Med expects to open around Jan. 28, subject to change.
