Il Primo @ Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur
September 15, 2010
Here's the concluding chapter in our Il Primo trilogy.
Amuse bouche of potatoes topped with tomatoes, alongside squid stuffed with sushi rice. Creative stuff; almost filling enough to be starters in their own right.
Yakinomo combo, featuring skewers of beef tongue, shishamo, chicken, beef teriyaki, chicken liver & quail eggs. Smoky and savory, but pricey at 88 ringgit.
Yellowfin tuna tartar with cold dashi soup. A saltier substitute for sashimi.
Baked Nova Scotia lobster, with olive oil drip. Sensationally succulent.
Australian aged air-dried bone in rib. A whopper that might satisfy four starving carnivores.
Duck fat-roasted potatoes. Evil carbs combine forces with sinful fat.
Verona chocolate fondant. Desserts here look pretty but taste rather average.
Vanilla bavarois with passion fruit.
Complimentary macarons & chocolates.
Bramble (gin, blackberry syrup, lemon squeeze) & Mango Berry Margarita (tequila, gran marnier, mango, lime syrup, strawberry puree).
Konrad Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc & Cesari Nibai Soave DOC '06.
Harvey Bristol Cream Sherry & Taylor's Special Tawny Port Wine.
