had delightful 2pax dinner with wife at il lido on 12.4.2015.^^
had not been to il lido like 5yrs maybe? recently daughter was here & shared photos on family whatsapp, so we decided to come try ourselves after so long.
we came just before sundown & sat outdoor. not so humid this evening & really pleasant terrace ambience & wonderful dinner.^^
we were served 2 amuse bouche.
first was a mushroom cappuccino/foam. there were mushroom bits at the bottom & some balsamic cream & some barley etc on top. taste was intense, fabulous. texture combination excellent too.
wife said what the server liked to hear, that this was better than jaan’s.
for me though, nothing beats jaan’s cepes mushroom tea amuse bouche. but since jaan’s was taken out of feed at raffles, and i am never going to pay full price for the degustation dinner at jaan, this would be the next best thing, i guess! & its close too!^^
second amuse bouche – crispy cheese risotto…quite ok i guess, but no impressions vs the mushroom foam.
quite good bread basket.
we ordered a grilled octopus to share.
it’s pretty good really. octopus was tender (like sous vide). there were some sausages.
for the mains, we basically go with the restaurant favourites & there server’s recommendations, and ordered the scampi & sea urchin taglioni & the black cod, asparagus & sea urchin. both were featured in the degustation set menu.
the scampi & uni tagliolini was tasty, not intense but subtle & pleasing. tagliolini though was too soft NOT al dente.
it had expensive ingredients like uni but overall taste & experience wise, i would not consider it better than most pastas i do myself.
black cod was great!
will try the other signature dish, the bone marrow crusted angus beef tenderloin next time.
we had a passionfruit sorbet & a coconut gelato to share. sorbet was tangy & excellent, gelato no coconut flavours nothing like the delicious coconut ice cream on 雪中情怀mango pomelo dessert we had at tunglok.
dinner cost S$100nett include 1 glass of white.
it’s really quite excellent ambience & food for a couples dinner.
