Midi 57 is a relatively new restaurant at the Bangkung Row that is set to satiate the residents of Bangsar and all others who love pizza, pasta and porky Italian dishes. Aptly named after its address, Midi 57 is also the sister restaurant of the more stylish and upscale Le Midi at BSC. The simple two-paged menu features an interesting mix of predominantly Italian and French cuisine with a small Tex-Mex section that is wallet-friendly, suitable for a casual meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
As soon as we were seated, some complimentary bruschetta was served. Then followed by a basket of homemade sesame bread and Focaccia after we placed our order.
We started off with the Piglet Salad @ RM27, a colorful assembly of Romaine lettuce, rocket and cherry tomatoes on thin slices of Roasted Herb Piglet with a dressing of mashed sun-dried tomatoes olive oil. The tangy sun-dried tomatoes provided most of the flavor while the fresh greens give a crisp bite on the palate, a delectable combo that turns out to be equally appetizing. This is a nice change from the usual vinaigrette-dressed salads that usually have a strong and acidic taste.
Midi 57 makes all their pasta in house using five different imported flours and the dough created is used as a base for the pizza and ravioli as well. The Squid Ink Tagliolini with Salmon and Zucchini @ Rm37 proved to be our favorite dish of the day quickly, winning us over with its fine, delicate yet springy texture akin to the Chinese Mee Pok. Some might find the cream sauce to be too thick but I feel the consistency is just nice to hold the pasta together.
