Here's the concluding chapter in our Il Primo trilogy.

Click here & here for earlier entries on Il Primo (Sept. 1 & Sept. 3).

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.
