The menu at Blu Med was produced and consulted by Iron Chef Sasajima, a Maestro of a distinctive style of Italian cuisine with a Japanese twist.

The restaurant features a trendy cool and modern environment with touches of comfort on the lower floor and luxury on the upper floor.




The casual dining area can accommodate 160 patrons, indoor and outdoor, whilst the upper floor seats 60 intimately, with exclusive use of 2 private dining rooms.

I'd say that the food was really fresh especially the Hirame (fluke) in Carpaccio of Hirame with Wild Rice and Soft Aubergine. You can see that Masterchef Sasajima has cleverly used sashimi, Japanese style and combine it with Italian food. As the menu we've tasted is just the simplified version of what they will be offering as the kitchen is not fully equipped yet, I certainly look forward to taste their actual menu!
