Dining at the Bangkung Row has been fuss free for both of us. Offering various cuisines from Spanish to Italian that have impressed us completely so far. Filling up the No.57 lot would be Midi 57, a friendly and relaxed restaurant serving authentic traditional wood oven pizza and homemade pastas. Comparing to its sister outlet Le Midi, which is more upscale that serves a fine dining establishment at Bangsar Shopping Centre , Midi 57 has a more casual setting that would be a great hang out place for families and friends to chill out & dine indoor or even opt for alfresco dining.
A kitchen team that is led by Chef Andrea Alimenti, a three-time recipient of the prestigious Michelin star with 35 years of experience, they vow to delight the palates of every customers with his culinary expertise and creativity. And not forgetting, Midi 57 has a good selection of pork dishes too!
Once seated, we were served with a good selections of colourful cocktails that paired well with the finger food that they served.
Carpese Salad with Parma Ham – RM48
Fresh cured meat paired with greens, organic tomato, buffalo mozzarella & drizzled with balsamic reduction plus pesto sauce. Refreshing dish.
At Midi 57, be sure to order some light bites to go with your drinks. These crispy tapas that they serve paired really well with cocktails and of course beer 🙂
Mussels and Prawns in Beer Batter – RM18
Ham Croquette in Walnut Crust (RM18)
Chicken Fingers in Red Wine and Rosemary Batter – RM18 (Left)
Deep Fried Polenta Potato (Right)
Crispy Foccacia – RM15
Love the fragrant bite of this flat oven-baked Italian bread that was infused richly with garlic, rosemary & olive oil.
Porchetta Pizza – RM29
Another dish that we love from Midi 57 was this pizza! Topped with cheese and the savoury moist boneless pork roast of Italian culinary tradition
FYI, take away pizzas are available here and soon they will have delivery service as well.
Spaghetti Carbonara and Lasagna
Creamy carbonara & a luscious serving of lasagna loaded with tomato, mozzarella, basil, parmesan.
Midi 57 Bar Burger – RM 28
Slow cook mince pork that made up the thick meat patty, stacked prettily with tomato, lettuce, red onion &
Swiss cheese, homemade toasted bun, served with French fries.
Pot Plate: Lamb Leg with Szechuan Pepper and Onions braised in Guinness – RM28
These pot plates are slow cooked in their wood-fired oven for hours. Penetrated with rich flavours and the meat is very juicy indeed.
Never forget Midi 57’s dessert!
