Dinner @ Giovino, Changkat Bukit Bintang

8

Sunday, my last day of holiday until school starts. Spent the morning and afternoon with Victor. We watched the movie, Valentine’s Day as well! It was not too bad! Actually, it was quite good. Except that, Taylor Swift acted like as if she’s a real dumb teenage blonde.. That one just turned me off.. Instantly.

Anyway, we went to Giovino, Chankat Bukit Bintang for dinner. It’s a little pricey, but worth every cent! It’s a non-halal Italian restaurant. Nowadays, you can seldom find a good non-halal Italian restaurant. Giovino has a beautiful interior. Especially the upstairs. It looked like a bee-hive kind of thing.

By the way, they sell cold cuts too!

P1090653

Pussy Foot (RM12)
It’s sort of reminds me of Oreo. Don’t ask why, it just does. It’s slightly sour if you don’t stir it up together. So, girls! Don’t order this if you decide to throw the cream away.

P1090654

P1090666

Kreatopita (RM16)
Baked minced meat in filo pastry
Very sweet juicy minced meat in the loveliest pastry ever.

P1090664

P1090674

Spanacopita (RM12)
Baked sautéed spinach in filo pastry
Recommended for vegetarians!

P1090676

P1090673

P1090671

Greek Tiropita (RM16)
Baked goat cheese in filo pastry
OMG. This taste like heaven. The perfect choice for those who absolutely love cheese to bits! This is just so beautiful. The pastry is just as good! Maybe it will even change those who dislikes cheese.. And make them love them so much, they can’t stop eating cheese for the rest of their lives. :D (Am I scaring you?)

P1090668

P1090684

Pan-fried Scallops (RM28)
On a bed of Portobello mushrooms and garden greens served with red pepper sauce
I love the portobello mushroom. The scallop is quite okay, but not the greatest.

P1090691

Greek Ntolmades (RM16)
Rolled Vine Leaf with Rice
How do you pronounce this? This is lovely too! Just by smelling it, your mouth would start to water. And this is just an appetizer!

P1090697

A selection of cold cuts. Really worth it! They are so gorgeous!!

P1090705

Spaghetti Carbonara (RM26)
with crispy bacon, fresh parmesan and egg
Just nice. It wasn’t too cheesy nor too creamy. It’s a lovely carbonara.

P1090706

P1090717

Buccatini Amatriciana (RM28)
Thick Pasta with bacon, onions in spicy herb tomato sauce
Compared to the Carbonara, this one isn’t so great. It’s tomato based, but creamy.

P1090716

P1090722

Pan-fried Cod Fillet (RM62)
Wrapped in bacon served with sautéed mushrooms and truffle butter sauce
Without the bacon though.. When I took this picture, my mouth literally watered. The smell of the lovely mushrooms.. The closer I got, I could smell the sweetness of the fish. I couldn’t wait to eat it! YUM!

P1090724

P1090732

Pork Steak (RM48)

Imagine a sirloin steak, but it’s pork, and not too raw. :D

P1090739

Greek Bifteki (RM52)
Beef patties sealed with emmenthal and bacon
This.. is another piece of heaven. The minced beef patties were juicy! Despite the fact it was minced..

P1090740

It’s meant to be slightly burnt, so don’t get worried!

P1090755

Wild Boar (RM48)
Cooked in red wine with mashed potatoes
Victor says it’s almost like lamb.

P1090769

P1090774

P1090785

Cheesy Vanilla Créme Brule (RM16)
You must try this! I can’t describe how heavenly this taste, every mouthful leaves you wanting more. Plus! It’s not too sweet, and good for those who are on a ‘diet’..

P1090790

Warm double chocolate flan with vanilla ice cream (RM22)
This is another dessert you MUST TRY. Serious, try it. You won’t regret paying RM22!

Salmon. It looked raw.. But when you taste it, it is actually cooked. How wonderful chefs are these days.

P1040030
The bread taste so much better than other restaurants. Oh my goodness.. First time I actually couldn’t stop eating them! And its quite thin, it won’t make you feel full!

P1040031

P1040041
Sea Urchin with Consomme Jelly and carrot mousse
This dish has a taste that not many would like.. If I had more than 2 spoons I might feel sick. Honest.

P1040043
Tagliolini Pasta with Hokkaido Scallop and Yukari
The pasta taste like a smoother version of wanton mee. The scallop.. Oh my, what a great taste. Really! The biggest, tastiest piece of scallop!

P1040047

P1040054
Lightly smoked muscovy duck with foie gras and Kabu
Foie gras! Have you ever tasted it? It’s fabulous! The duck is just as great. It’s not the ordinary cooked duck. This one is lightly smoked… Half raw. Something like that. (:

P1040106
Feuillantine of Mascarpone with Ice Cream and Espresso Tuile
The black jelly isn’t the cincau you eat. It is coffee jelly! (Damn good. Like the Kopi sweet in jelly form)
