Hubby’s and my birthday is just a few days apart. Auntie YC offered to take us out for a lovely birthday dinner. She wanted to take us to Le Midi Restaurant at Bangsar Shopping Centre. Since it’s a long festive holiday, we decided to have an early birthday treat on Monday, the 2nd day of Hari Raya.
The waiter told us that their dinner set menu was not available on that day. Probably due to short of staff working on that Raya holiday.
Since Jared is having holiday in Penang with his grand mother, we brought Jaden along for the dinner.
To start with, we had Lemidi chef variation of appetizers and Mediterranean Seafood salad. Hubby likes the seafood salad made with extra virgin olive oil, seasonal vegetables, cherry tomatoes, garlic and lemon.
Auntie YC had this scallops broth. She didn’t quite like it as the broth was a little blend.
Mushroom soup … Jaden’s favourite.
If we are eating out, Hubby is very likely to order beef, since we do not cook beef at home. Hubby gave a thumb ups for this Wagyu Sirloin that he had it with red wine.
Auntie YC ordered this pan seared Lemon Sole and had it with White Wine.
Jaden chose to have lamb for main course and I ordered this lamb rack to share with him. I like the taste of the lamb with the red wine.
After dinner, Auntie YC recommended that we should try their desserts, especially this is for our birthday celebration.
We requested the restaurant to recommend their desserts. The restaurant owner, Ms Melissa Groot suggested that she will ask the kitchen to prepare a dessert platter for us to experience the few varieties of desserts that the restaurant offer.
From Top, left: Lemon Ricotta Tart, Panna Cotta with passion fruit coulis, Profiteroles with warm chocolate sauce and toasted almond and Almond Parfait.
All of the desserts were yummy. We particularly like the Panna Cotta and Lemon Ricotta Tart. In fact, the Almond Parfait was very nice too and so was the Profiteroles. So, all of the desserts were good. I would love to return to the restaurant just for the desserts.
This is also my first photo with my new hair cut (cut it two days ago).
Haha … the clean plate. Who is on diet?
Thank you Auntie YC for remembering our birthday and also thank you for the lovely dinner.
Jaden said he would tell his brother what he had for his dinner. We tested him “What did you have for dinner?” and he said “I had bread with butter. Then, I had mushroom soup with squid and prawns (from the seafood salad). For main course, I had lamb. Then, we had desserts”.
