Dinner @ Kilo

May 10, 2012 in European by thywhaleliciousfay

I first got to know about Kilo when my friend decided she need her dosage of coffee, and came to Loysel’s Toy. Thus, I had been meaning to check Kilo out. And no, Kilo does not stand for Kilometers or Kilograms for the matter of fact. It’s supposed to mean “I want to communicate with you”. =)

It’s a short distance to travel by taxi from Lavender MRT. And reservation is a must! I only managed to secure bar seats when I called the week ahead, but we were late, and managed to get a table seat after a group happened to leave when we arrived.


And from the menu, my girlfriends and I ordered:-

1) Fig + sweet onion pizza with mozzarella & balsamico, $25 (above) – This was definitely interesting for us since I dont remember ever having such a combination before. The base is very thin and crispy, while the drizzled sauce went well with the fig and sweet onion. Though I dont think this may suit everyone’s taste since not everyone likes fig.

2) Seared scallops in mushroom sauce + tomatoes & sauteed white wine mushrooms, $21 (above) – Not too bad. The dish did not look very appetizing upon served because the scallops were covered in the brown mushroom sauce. But the scallops were fresh! Not forgetting the mushrooms which were nicely done and juicy too.

3) Angel hair with cream of ebiko, $21 (above) – A must try! It’s amazing how they manage to toss the pasta such that every strand is covered with the cream sauce. Caviar (Correct me if I am wrong) is sprinkled on the top such that with every bite, there’s different texture. A must try! Prawns were very fresh.

4) Day-night 12-hour pork belly with purple mash, sour cream & crackling, $28 (above) – A must try! The meat is so, so tender! And with the fats (Oh yes), there’s that melt-in-the-mouth feel. Very nice! The accompanied sauce was on the sweet side which made the dish felt Chinese/Japanese influenced.

5) Squid ink rice with prawns & squid + egg yolk, $22 (above) – Again, another interesting and nice dish. The rice, not the soft but slightly hard type, is fragant on its own. Again, the prawns were super fresh!

I have to say it was an enjoyable dinner. It’s a pity their range of desserts is very limited. Being lava cake, lemon tart and ice cream. Din try any of those as nothing jumped out at us. Haha.

The place is not air-conditioned. Thus, depending on where you are sitting, you may not be able to enjoy the wind from the fans. We were seated at the table directly in front of the lift and it gets pretty warm there as we were kinda positioned in the corner. Other than that, love the service too! Very warm and friendly staff.
