Ultimo @ Solaris Mont Kiara

The latest entry at Solaris is an elegant outlet with enthusiastic service and a solid menu, but the food might not be memorable enough to bring us back.

Complimentary pumpkin soup. A source of warm, comforting nourishment.

Salmon confit in lemon-infused olive oil, fennel, rocket and vanilla beans. Not bad. The salmon was moist and fresh, complemented nicely by the tangy salad.

Pork terrine with watercress and parmesan. Well-prepared, but more of an acquired taste. It didn't exactly look too appetising either.

Raviolo of scallop and prawn in its own bisque with basil oil. The bisque was flavourful, but the combo of ingredients was merely pleasant, nothing more.
(Note: Check your receipt! This was supposed to be a starter, but they billed us for a main course, nearly double the listed price on the menu)

Roast pork belly with stuffed trotter and potato puree. Kinda overpriced. The pork was meaty but the serving was still a bit too small for a main course.

Day in the Shade (bacardi rum, pineapple juice, cranberry juice) and Evening in Paris (smirnoff vodka, pineapple, orange juice, lemon juice).

Leconfield Synergy Chardonnay (Australia).

Ultimo,
