Upon reaching my destination, Blu Med Restaurant, I was surprise at how elegant and luxurious it looks and a good location to boot.
The place has a mesmerizing lovely interior and feels really cozy to snuggle up to where there's an outdoor dining area as well.
It was mentioned that it seats approximately 160 patrons on the inside and outside of this restaurant while the upper floor seats about 60 people where there are also 2 private dining rooms upstairs.
Started off with a welcoming cocktail drink named Strawberry Caipiroska (RM26):
To start off our meal, we were served Steamed Vegetables:
Next served was a Tapas dish that's just RM5, Eggplant Siciliana:
Soft Shell Crab & Broccoli Tempura:
Quarto Formaggi Pizza:
To me, a little bit of honey on the pizza adding a bit of sweetness to it is just right where the star of the pizza which to me is the cheese is complemented. But if you love eating honey, then douse away with it's sweetness.
The dish that I looked forward to the most was up next and that is the Squid Ink Spaghetti:
La Cocina in a Paella dish after being introduced by my friend. Skeptical and a little hesitant at first to try, I immediately took a liking to squid ink after my first taste of it. And that's why I look forward to try another squid ink dish again and am happy that this was the opportunity. The dish contains squids, clams, mussels and cherry tomatoes and topped with fine strands of chili to add some spice to it, a nice touch. As for the squid ink spaghetti, well the squid ink as expected did enhance the taste of the spaghetti.
Executive Combo Set:
Aside from the Strawberry Caipiroska served earlier, we were also given a taste of their Caipirinha cocktail:
This seems to have a stronger alcohol taste than the earlier cocktail I tasted probably due to the fact that this is used with Rum while the earlier was with Vodka which generally, Vodka do had a lighter taste than Rum.
We finally ended the dinner with a dessert called Caramel Apple Honey Toast with Ice Cream:
Some of the items that were reviewed here will be available in their new menu starting on March 17, 2014 (which is coming Monday) while the rest are already available at Blu Med.
