Date Night: A Valentine’s treat at Misto, Seda Abreeza

For many hopeless romantics the notion of where to dine and wine your special someone on Valentine’s Day doesn’t really matter as long as you both are solid and vowed to be together forever. 

But the truth is, while that’s the general idea at the back of our minds we always long to spend the day at some swanky and gorgeous place where not only that food is great but there’s also this added element of romance, passion and surprise not just to perk up our special day but also to create special memories.

Well, if you’re still in the limbo of deciding and finding where to bring your special someone this Valentine’s, I just got a perfect place for you to make that special moment happen.

Misto, Seda Abreeza’s award winning all-day restaurant has a special treat for you and your loved one this Valentine’s.  I was one lucky earthling I got a preview of what awaits you when you spend this special day at Misto. 

On Valentine’s Day, guests will be treated to a movie-themed ‘Date Night’ kind of night. Tables will be decked with romantic set-up - red roses, red gerberas, candles and subdued lightings to bring out that romantic ambiance at the resto.

A 3-course wine-pairing plated dinner will be served. Beginning with the most exquisite salad I’ve ever tasted this year so far, the Crab Stick, Avocado, Pickled Ginger, Baby Herbs and Greens w/ Honey Calamansi Dijon Vinaigrette.

This impressive stack is as good as it looks. Its complex flavour made it truly a stand-out. The pickled ginger gives it a little zing. All other green bits and pieces give it texture and appetizing feel. The avocado cubes compliment it to bring to the palate creamy, tangy goodness you can’t help but moan. Thought it’s just like your partner. S/he may be complicated and all but all together - a well-put, appealing and a wo/man you can’t get enough of.

And for your wine, you will be served the bright, fresh and cheerful Chilean Apaltagua Gran Verano Sauvignon Blanc.

Misto Executive Sous Chef Giovanna “Bang” Flores-Sibala informed us that all the dishes prepared for Valentine’s are Asian inspired. So for the soup, you will have Shrimp in Spiced Coconut Milk. 

I know what you have in mind, I also thought its deep in spice, but mind you, it’s perfect to keep your night alive.

The main course will be Teriyaki Glazed Salmon w/ Malabar Black Pepper, Bok Choy and Shiitake Mushrooms. You can’t go wrong with Salmon specially when it's done with all these delectable add-ons. I know the best way through anyone’s heart is through their stomach, I am certain this is one perfect dish to seal over a promise, a promise not just to celebrate your love for each other, but a pact to come back and enjoy other offerings at Misto in the future.

And for your wine, you’ll have the fruity and fresh Chilean Morande Pionero Sonador Pinot Noir to toast to the occasion.

Misto’s signature and impressive as always dish, Roasted Angus Beef Short Plate w/ Rosemary Gravy will also grace your romantic night. Take your time not only to cherish your company but also to savour this perfected goodness especially roasted just for this occasion. You’ll also have Mashed Potato, Saffron Rice Pilaf and Aglio e Olio Penne w/ Parmesan Cheese to go with the carved meat.

Enjoy a glass of rich and fruity Morande Pionero Sonador Merlot to go with this dish.
