。L’altro – 充滿海洋氣息的夏天。
L’altro is located in L Place, one of the building that gathers lots of restaurants in Central. The new summer menu has unveiled the characteristics of summer flavour. So happy to be here with my colleague to try the new menu. The bread basket has attracted us quite a lot before we began the meal.
Octopus, scallops and tuna have been used separately in the appetisers. Grilled Octopus with Grapefruit and Buffalo Stracciatella and Cheese Salad is well presented with refreshing grapefruit and light salad. While Mediterranean Red Tuna in Fresh Cherry Tomato Sauce with Basil Sorbet and Parmesan Cheese Cookie has kick-started with the outstanding basil sorbet, the sweetness of the tuna tartare has been even enhanced. Besides, “One Side” Roasted Scallops, with Watermelon Sauce and Salad, Almonds and Cucumber Sorbet is my favourite among all the appetisers. The sweetness of watermelon sauce matched perfectly with the scallops and felt the summer flavour.
主食有著Miramonti L’altro秘製意大利飯和北意大利傳統蜆肉配手製意粉，意大利飯相對於意粉味道較淡，但那蘑菇和芝士的清香卻是無法比擬。而之後相對「重口味」了一點的北意大利傳統蜆肉配手製意粉，食下去就是有一種濃郁的海水味，意粉煮得al dente，而蜆肉帶著海水味更讓人覺得新鮮。
Miramonti L’altro Risotto with Mushrooms and Sweet Cheese has followed the appetisers, with a light cheese and mushroom fragrance. The texture was just perfect and made a great contrast with the following hand-made Spaghetti with Italian Clams in Sea Water Emulsion.
For the mains, Sea Bass, Mussels and Clams in Fresh Basil Sauce with New Potatoes has surprised me a bit. The sauce is well presented in foam. Its lightness has drawn all the attention to the sea bass. Mixed Fish, Lobster and Crustaceans Soup with Brioche has left me good impression among all the items on new menu. Soup is freshly poured in front of you and it tasted so good with the crispy toast.
After all the seafood items with strong flavour, some lightly sweet desserts would be perfect to complete the meal. Gelato Miramonti with Warm Strawberries was a simple dessert with balanced sourness and sweetness, as much as the other dessert Black Tea Crème Brulee with Gratinated Peaches and Sorbet.
