Valrhona Warm Chocolate Cake
Penne with tomato sauce
24 Month Parma Ham
I've always wanted to try this restaurant... even when it was opened for so many years at IFC... Finally this year my friend took me to the new Harlan for my birthday!
We ordered our dishes to share, for appetizer, we ordered the "24 month parma ham", and for our main course, we ordered the "Penne in tomato sauce" and "Spanish Pork Variation".
The Parma ham was extremely satisfying not so salty and the portion was very generous.
The penne was cooked with sweet onions, chili, basil, garlic, tomato cream, russian vodka and parmesan cheese. To be honest, its not surprisingly but the taste was just right and penne was al dente.
The waiter was very nice and helped us split the portion into 2.
The Pork Variation was better than expected, but was not really my favorite as the variation were 'confit cheek, pork terrine, and grilled shoulder'. The confit cheek was delicious, rich in texture with perfect seasaoning; the grilled shoulder was acceptable but not too special; and the pork terrine was my least favorite as there were chunks of fat in it (its a personal preference I must admit... I'm kinda health conscious...
The meal was so far so good and the waiter recommended a very nice white wine to go with our meal. Forgot to mention the bread basket was also good, with 3 types of bread all warmed...
Finally came the dessert, we ordered what the waiter also recommended, the "Valrhona" Warm Chocolate Cake, Passion Mousse and Rum Raisin Ice Cream. This was a really good wrap up of the dinner. Its really been a while since I found a restaurant with a nice warm and soft warm chocolate cake... the texture and sweetness was well balanced, and honestly, half of this cake is was not enough. I'll definitely go back for this! I wonder if I can just walk in for desserts?
