In case you were wondering, LeMidi is on the 3rd floor of Bangsar Shopping Centre and boasts beautiful vistas of the Twin Towers, if you need a room with a view.
To start, we had the Eggplant nest with truffle egg yolk and parmesan cheese. The eggplant was so delicious, it tasted like bacon, someone commented. A rather good substitute, I'd say!!! The strong flavour of the parmesan, coupled with the rich runny yolk, consumed together with the egg plant was a mesmerizing treat to the senses, both in flavour and texture.
Vanilla panacotta and strawberry coulis. I wish I had taken a video of the perfect wobble. Not overly sweet, lovely and creamy without being gelatinous.
Chocolate tender heart with Amarena cherry parfait. Basically a molten lava cake, with that flowy chocolate oozing out as you dissect it but I totally forgot to take a picture of the ooze, because I was just too busy eating.
Orange cheesecake and chocolate drawing. A safe dessert, for the traditionalist who want something more familiar. Nevertheless, you can tell that the quality is excellent.
It is exciting times ahead for Le Midi, with the new more affordable fine dining (previously it was a bit on the high side, but then again, seafood was flown in fresh from the mediterranean, so you really get what you pay for).
