Italian Fine Dine @ Il Lido, KL

6

Last night, I went to Il Lido for dinner with my mum. Sad that Christopher or Beng couldn’t come. Anyway, going to Il Lido is like going to some top secret agent building under cover as a restaurant. Hehe. It’s on the first floor, so you gotta take the lift. 2nd floor would be their outdoor bar. Customised chairs and comfy sofas with a bar that has almost everything. You could even watch the KL tower if you are deeply interested. :D Sad thing about this is that it’s open air. So when it rains.. Not many can go up there. Anyway, back to the main floor – 1st floor. It’s dark with only the tables lit. It’s cold, so you’d better remember to bring along a jacket. It has steps, so watch your step! (: If you don’t see any steps, the waiters would notify you. Don’t you worry. (: Speaking of waiters, they all are so well trained. They are alert, they are observant and attends to you as soon as possible. Ooh, best part of the interior of the restaurant is that they provide a special place to put your belongings/handbags so you don’t have to share your chair with them. :D

They have 2 private rooms. This is the bigger one. Don’t be fooled by the plastic chairs. It’s one of the most comfortable chairs on Earth. I am dead serious. They ain’t cheap!

P1190685

The lamp above the private room table. I could stare at it all day long. It’s really quite pretty.

P1190667

The waiters dress in brown and they are really friendly and attentive people! (:

P1190675

Focaccia Bread. A little too oily, and too oily to even dip into the olive oil and vinegar. And it takes ages to reach the vinegar.

P1190741

P1190686

Crab Salad with Avocado and Bisque Jelly (RM39)
From degustation menu.

P1190702

Pan Fried Goose Liver with Saba Wine Must and Sweet Potatoe Galette (RM59)
This is from the degustation menu. I *heart* foies gras.

P1190704

P1190711

Rigatoni with Lamb Ragout, Fava Beans and Pecorino Cheese (RM39)
Lots of cheese. Bite size lamb which is chewable unlike the lamb shanks. Love-a-ly. Love-a-ly.  *MWAH (I think I’m trying too hard to sound like an Italian.)

P1190718

Tagliolini with Lobster and Spicy ‘Calabria’ Salami (RM59)
They say that the spicy-ness comes only from the special salami they imported but the salami slices would not be visible for some odd reason. The lobster’s nice and so is the tagliolini. This is from the degustation menu so it looks a little smaller in size.

P1190722

P1190724

Gorgonzola Cheese and Radicchio Risotto with Hazlenut Sauce (RM39)
I’m not really a fan of risotto but this is OK. They have another champagne risotto with LOTS of truffle. That is quite good as well I heard.

P1190727

P1190744

Sardinian Roasted Suckling Pig with Plum Sauce (RM85)
Another from the degustation menu. It would be 3 slices if ala carte. You could hear so clearly how crispy it is when you cut it. YUM.

P1190759

Duck Leg Confit with Truffle Salad and Caramelized Shallots (RM75)
A little too dry for my liking. Like a lamb shank. Not something I’d want to order. ):

P1190789

Ricotta Cheese Cake with Orange and Pistacchio (RM29)
What? What’s that on top? GOLD? Yeah. They are real gold flakes. I didn’t really enjoy this though. Imagine a cheesecake which is almost like cream. x10 the dry-ness. And add in the orange and pistacchio pieces in it.

Degustation Menu (RM180)

Dinner @ Hot Chocolat, Section 13

0

Last night I went to have dinner with Uncle Jim and mum. Uncle Jim always calls me his little princess. He’s one of my mum’s old friend. He opens Hot Chocolat in Damansara Heights and Section 13. His food is incredible. It’s made with love and passion. He’s always around in the restaurant, makes his customers happy. He’s just so nice and generous. Full of energy.

P1050582

A variety of his pastries in a basket.

Watermelon Smoothie and Banana Smoothie (RM9.90 each)
The watermelon smoothie taste weird. But compared to a banana smoothie, I’d rather take the watermelon one. It’s an experience you see, a banana smoothie is so common. Banana smoothie ha the rich flavour where as a watermelon smoothie has the flavour of the vanilla and chocolate ice cream but with a refreshing watermelon taste.

P1050625

P1050644

Orange Freeze with 3 scoops of chocolate ice cream! Oh my! This is so good. It’s not in the menu though but this is so beautiful. Weird, but  delicious.

P1050587

Osso Buco Manzo (Off Menu)
Pasta with beef, carrots, potatoes, peppers, olives and black pepper sauce.
The beef pieces are so delicious!

P1050601

Grilled Eggplant, carrots, peppers and tomatoes (RM18)
Also with onions, herbs, spices, salt and pepper. That’s all and it taste so fabulous. A vegetarian’s choice! :D

P1050605

Pesce Milanese (RM24)
Pan fried crumbed Dorry fish fillet, topped with pineapple, tomato, spring onion with pasta and some salad.
The pasta is wonderful, the fish fillet is gorgeous and fresh and the salad makes you feel healthier.

P1050609

P1050608

Really good pasta.

P1050611

Big piece of fish fillet

P1050619

Spicy Abbaccio Ala Romana (RM24)
Lamb pieces, herbs, chilli, olio style
Very good dish.

P1050628

Tenderloin Beef (Rm28)
He changed it to chicken, so I couldn’t get the real taste. But this is really good. Just made perfect for Malaysian tastebuds

P1050629

P1050640

Chicken Chop with Salsa Sauce (RM22)
Deep fried chicken chop with salsa sauce, spaghetti olio spinach
Salsa sauce! Better than the ordinary black pepper, I can assure you!

P1050637

P1050651

Tiramisu (RM15.90)
Are tiramisus dry? I don’t know, I tasted ones that feel like dry sponge with cream in between.. This one, the bottom layer is so well soaked, I could really had a good taste of the flavour! I could do without the ice cream..

P1050655

Royale Chocolate Cake (RM11.90)
Can you see the water droplets on the cake? Well, it kinda means this is cold. It is! And it goes very well indeed with the vanilla ice cream.

P1050656

P1050660

Just look at that..

P1050662

Apple Pie (RM11.90)
Very sour! But quite yummy, especially when its hot.

Feel The warmth, the photography, @ The Frames, TTDI Plaza

0

So long since I had a proper food post. :D Mum and I went to Frames at TTDI Plaza for dinner. TTDI Plaza! It’s my first time there. (Really..) I’d bring friends here when possible. I promise! Its value for money! No kidding! Guess what? Frames has one of the biggest, largest, hugest (if there’s such word) burger in Malaysia. Almost as tall as your Nike bottle, as wide as a CD. No joke. It’s called a goliath. :D Try it. It’s RM39.90 but if you can finish it in 30 minutes, you get it free! :D

Interesting huh? There are so many photos.. Landscapes, macro shots, animals, nature..

P1040202
Tomatoes Bruchetta
I’d appreciate it if it’s smaller in size.. So I can just pop them into my mouth. The taste is lovely. Not too sour.. Just nice. The bread isn’t that bad. Like garlic bread without the garlic.

P1040204
Prawns Bruchetta
Seafood isn’t my thing. But this isn’t that bad. Quite good actually. Goes well with the bruchetta.

P1040205

P1040203
Mediterranean Mushrooms Bruchetta
I’m so in love with mushrooms! This one is lovely! Mushrooms with green, red and yellow capsiscums, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

P1040211

P1040217
Balsamic Salad (Personal: RM10.90, Regular: RM19.90)
With balsamic chicken and wild mushrooms
I ate mostly from the top. Today’s sauce is a little sweet but it’s really nice.

Carbonara (RM20.90)

Very creamy pasta. Cream sauce lovers would enjoy this pasta. (:

P1040237
Pan Grilled Salmon (RM29.90)
Salmon steak topped with creamy basil sauce
i like the salmon with the cream sauce.. If only the salmon weren’t so cooked. (I have this thing about cooked salmons.. I prefer them raw rather than cooked, don’t mind me..)

P1040238

P1040249
Rack of Lamb (RM39.90)
With creamy mint and rosemary sauce
I’d still prefer my lovely beef steak. But, mmhmm.. I could smell the strong scent of mint and rosemary a table away when I was taking photos of the salmon.
