Marini's on 57 @KLCC
|In Singapore, you will see high class restaurants open their restaurant with Marina Bay Sands view. In KL, it will be the Petronas Twin Tower instead. However, to allow you to dine with the tower so up close and personal to you, it got to be Marini's on 57. Outstanding view which will just leave a memory of a lifetime to you.|
|This is the view you are getting which is the view of Jalan Sultan Ismail. While for the bar, you will the Jalan Ampang view.|
|Insalata Stagionale(Garden Salad) @RM88.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - I thought to be a normal salad but they just like to be creative about it. It is a salad made of 20 types of vegetables in it, 12 dressings, 4 perfumes and 5 "fresh air". As you can see there are 5 glasses which starts from the left are Tomato & Basil Sorbet, Apple Foam, Lemon Foam, Oyster Leave and a glass of sparkling water. You need to take all of these in order starting from the left to clean your taste bud before starting with the salad.
|This is a printed ingredients of this complicated salad. There is a 4 perfumes which is not in the picture because they will spray for you upon serving. There are lemon, orange, basil and lavender and you just can only choose one.|
|These are the perfumes and you are not restricted to one for this. So you can test one by one of your salad.|
|Capesante in Salsa Ai Ricci Di Mare @RM158.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - 2 pan seared Hokkaido sea scallops with sea urchin cream as dressing and 4 sea asparagus. Yes, I am purposely counting it out since that is going to cost me more than RM160.00. However, undeniably that it is very delicious, sweet and fresh scallop. That two pieces are just not enough to pleasure you.
|They do provide oyster leave and salmon roe to clean your taste bud before taking the sea scallop. If you wished to ask me whether does it works, well I will honestly say that I taste the same.|
Overall: 2/5 - 150gm of aged Wagyu beef in tagliata style with spinach, summer truffle and parsnip. I know tagliata style is an Italian way of serving the meat but cutting it to small size like this. It is meant to be salty. If you are not a person who can take saltiness like me, do not order this. Almost RM85.00 for every small piece that is on the plate. Extremely expensive and really regret ordering it.
|Agnello Impanato @RM188.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - Breaded lamb cutlets Milanese style, potatoes and roasted onion, roasted beetroot, and green Spanish Piquillo pepper, Very creative way to breaded the lamb with fried cheese. It looks like a drumstick but it is a lamb rack instead. The first bite on it you feel like an attack of cheese fragrance all over your mouth and follow by the saltiness of the cheese. It is really a pleasuring moment.
|The lamb is soft and tender which has very minimal gamey taste on it. To those who dislike gamey taste, this is a must order dish for you.\|
|Another complimentary dessert which they called it Candle which does looks like one. It is a caramelized. Quite delicious.|
|Marini's Tiramisu @RM38.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - Just a fancy tiramisu and not my favourite traditional Italian type of Tiramisu with lots of rum in it. Too creamy and too much coffee.
|Gelato Vaniglia @RM28.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - Homemade vanilla gelato served with warm chocolate lava cake. Hot and cold combination is always delightful experience to your taste bud. Never going wrong if you are choosing a dessert which is using this theme.
Food Serving Speed: Moderate
Will I Revisit?: No but recommended at least once.
