Il Lido Kuala Lumpur
June 4, 2010
Ricotta with sea urchin sauce & poppy seeds. An amuse bouche that we'd happily eat as a main course; rich but not overpoweringly so.
Crab meat with avocado & bisque jelly. Baby food, comfort food.
Tagliolini with lobster & spicy Calabrese salami. The best of seafood and pork combine forces, packing an intense wallop of flavor on one plate.
Foie gras with saba wine must reduction & sweet potato galette. Adding a citrus element might help slice through the sheer fattiness of this. But lovers of goose liver will still revel in cholesterol-fueled intoxication.
Linguine with blue fin tuna, cured tuna roe & lemon zest. Brimming with meaty fish chunks; recommended for everyone who's tired of all the spaghetti aglio olio served elsewhere.
Pumpkin tortelli with amaretti crumbs. Many outlets offer pumpkin ravioli, but none does it this well. Breathtakingly soft pumpkin mousse stuffed to bursting within thin tortelli skin, mingling marvelously with the scent of sage and aged balsamic vinegar.
Tiramisu. Seemed like a non-alcoholic version, strangely.
Prosecco. Feeling bubbly. Oh, yeah.
Jalan Mayang, Off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, Kuala Lumpur.
