Getting ready. My makeup and part of my outfit for the night! My go-to eye makeup look for a night out : )
Modo Mio has one of the best interiors I have ever seen for a restaurant. Absolutely stunning. Really elegant and classy.
Garlic bread for starters. So freakin' delicious! So much flavour and a great crunch to the bread. Love the sprinkle of parmesan.
My main- the pan fried barramundi fillet with eggplant sauce, garlic oil broccolini and crystal potato. The fish was cooked to absolute perfection! It was so soft and silky. Great amount of flavour in each of the components of the dish. Definitely recommend this one!
My boy's main- the black angus beef tenderloin, marsala wine sauce, winter vegetables and truffle flavoured crisps. The beef was cooked medium rare which was perfect. I tried the beef and it was so tender, still retaining its flavour and not dry at all. Nothing worse than over-cooked and dry meat! Wish they added more sauce though.
Cocktails- his peach bellini and my strawberry & mint concoction. I recommend the strawberry cocktail- I don't exactly remember the ingredients except for the strawberries, mint and vodka. Not too strong which is great and really refreshing! We both didn't like the peach bellini- just too overpowering and strong. I didn't really taste any peach flavours either.
We shared the chocolate fondant and vanilla icecream for dessert. Delicious but not as yummy as the chocolate fondant at Koko Black which was richer in chocolate flavour! The chocolate oozey gooey centre at Koko Black was also way more epic, Modo Mio's was a tad runnier which I didn't care for. I want it gooey goddammit!
For anyone interested, here is Modo Mio's site where you are able to view their menus and make online reservations which I highly recommend! Don't expect to turn up and get a table! Although on the pricier end of the scale, I will definitely return especially because of the high quality of food presented and the ambience.
That's all for now. Have a lovely week ahead!
