Il Ponte, Millennium Seoul Hilton’s popular Italian trattoria, will host a special promotion featuring sublime white asparagus in a five-course dining feast. This promotion will take place during the month of September.
The menu commences with the star: white asparagus contrasted with textures of shrimp and micro leaves. This will be followed by a velvety white asparagus veloute with truffle-flavored parsley and garlic croutons. The next course will feature pan-fried sea scallops on white asparagus in lemon butter. The main entrée is U.S. beef tenderloin served with carrot puree, veal jus and butter-poached white asparagus. To finish off this delectable meal and ode to the white asparagus, a dessert of cream of mascarpone with grilled pineapple and fresh strawberries will be served. The menu is priced at KW105,000 per person.
Grown without exposure to sunlight, white asparagus has a delicate flavour that gourmands love. Highly sought after, white asparagus is often referred to as the “king of vegetables” in Europe.
Il Ponte is also continuing its lobster promotion until the end of September. Diners may choose a six-course dining extravaganza with lobster dishes for KW120,000 per person or a special “menu for two” price of KW210,000 per couple.
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.
