For my birthday this year where we were celebrating it for the first time as husband and wife, is held at Hemisphere Restaurant and Bar. We took almost 45 mins to reach there because we could not find the Regalia Residence 2 condo which was actually behind Sunway Putra Mall but inaccessible from the mall but need to go along the highway.
There are many guests tonight celebrating their friends birthdays as well. If not for special occasions, people would not come here due to the hefty price per item. There was a marriage proposal too and 2 ladies who look like celebrities.
One has to make advance booking for an alfresco dining table that would be along the circular balcony that can afford the view of KL city. Many people come here to take photo of the night scene, lights and also Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.
When we arrived, we did not have a table and had to sit in the middle. Later only were we given the table near the glass that overlooks the outside area. There were 2 heart-shaped balloons at my chair that makes me the special one! It reminds me of 29 April during my wedding proposal at Pietro.
Foie Gras Cigar (RM 49.90)
This is not one of the popular orders but it sure is unique. Thank god Jonathan remembered this special item from the menu and we ordered it. They use a wafer look-alike to roll the foie gras into a cigar. It is served with some chocolate biscuit bits and also the solid and non-creamy part of the foie gras and also a small strawberry. The foie gras is simply exquisite.
New Zealand Roasted Lamb Rack (RM 99.90)
I kept staring at the menu due to the exorbitant prices and finally, since we are already here, we decided to order the lamb rack which is the average priced steak/lamb item here. The lamb is moist, tender and succulent. It is served with mashed potato and edaname peas on top and also a myriad of mushrooms like button mushroom, shimeji, shitake and abalone mushrooms. It is a fusion lamb as it is served with acar sliced cucumber and the overall combination was just superb!
River Prawn Aglio Olio (RM 79.90)
The Aglio Olio fettuccini is one of the most amazing I have ever tasted as contrary to popular belief that aglio olio is the simplest Italian pasta dish, it is cooked with a spices that evoke the senses. the river prawn is also huge enough and has just the right amount of creaminess to it and not overly creamy from cheese overload. There are also a lot of squid cooked together.
Pineapple Juice (RM 12)
I almost thought this is just pineapple juice from the can but turned out to be freshly squeezed juice which was good. I didn't order any cocktail as there wasn't any in particularly special serving style but just normal mojito, long island etc.
