The set menu is a four-course event consisting of: Seared Sea Scallops and Ripe Tomato Salsa served with Parmesan Crisp and Rocket Salad; Prawn and Sea Bass Risotto flavoured with Saffron, Olive and Pistachio-crusted Beef Tenderloin served with Baby Carrots and Sundried Tomato Mash; and ending with Chocolate and Pistachio Mille Feuille served with Berries Compote and Strawberry Ice Cream. This special set menu is priced at KW89,000 per person.
Lim Jang-Hwan, the head chef of Il Ponte, says “Personally, I would choose Risotto as one of the most complicated Italian dishes to make. It does require a fair amount of attention to make the rice to hold up well for the creamy texture by adding in the broth a scoop at a time. Also, the texture of vegetables and seafood needs to be well-harmonized with the rice”.
Il Ponte features the finest Italian cuisine from tempting pasta and authentic pizza to mouthwatering regional dishes. Il Ponte also has an extensive choice of exquisite Italian and international wines.
