Taste the Southern Italian freshness from the sea at Alto 88 this summer, it is a certain that will amaze you!
Italian ingredients and dishes vary by its region. Southern Italy has its very long coastline which makes it an area with lots of seafood resources. A 5-course tasting menu is specially designed by Alto 88’s Executive Italian Chef, Matthew Thaeron, for guests to enjoy. Swordfish Carpaccio, Oyster Leave, Citrus and Olive Oil is something good to start with the menu. The freshness of the swordfish carpaccio together with the refreshing taste of citrus make a perfect match for the dish. The second dish will be Pan-seared Lobster served with Lightly Spicy Tomato Sauce which is one of the highlights of the menu. Lobsters are known as tasty treasures from the sea, cooking with spicy tomato sauce will give the dish a hint of salty and spicy flavour. Next course would be Sicilian Busiate Pasta, Pesto “Trapanese”, Squid and Bottarga. Homemade pasta is the all-time guests’ favourite at Alto 88 and Chef Matthew picked the most authentic recipe of busiate by cooking the pasta with Pesto Trapanesea with squid and Bottarga. Main course will be a choice between Grilled Mediterranean Red Prawn with Garlic and Seasonal Vegetable and Sicilian “Couscous” with Red Snapper and Shellfish, Mediterranean Vegetable. Last but not least, Sicilian Cannoli in Three Flavors with Yogurt Sorbet will give guests a sweet evening.
