VUN | Milan

One of my Milan highlights was my dinner for one at VUN. This Michelin starred restaurant is part of the luxurious Park Hyatt Milan hotel. I picked this restaurant because I had read positive reviews and felt like I deserved a treat. 

I chose the tasting dinner which started off with the amuse-bouches above. The two round pieces contained liquid inside and I was advised to have them in one go. The tastes were very different and I was most impressed by the ball at the bottom as it had an effervescent effect. 

Another amuse-bouche followed and then the seven course "Neapolitan Itinerary" dinner started.

Caprese... sweet salted

Fried paranza

I struggle with prawns that are served with their head still on. The waiter suggested that I hold the prawn while he would pull it off but I just couldn't look at it. He kindly agreed to have it removed behind the scenes. I felt really embarrassed but thankful!

The menu foresaw a dish with pork but I got a vegetarian option instead: homemade pappardelle with mushrooms. Such a delight!

Another meat dish containing ragout was replaced by a dumpling containing runny cheese. Possibly my favourite from the hot selection. 

Next up was the amberjack with batavian endive.

The sweet part kicked off with lemon sensation (above). Just watch the spectacular introduction (see video below).

Above is the actual Lemon sensation.

My favourite dessert was the Neapolitan Diplomatica. The waiter showed me that the crusty layer had to be broken with the spoon and then stirred with the creamy content (which included ice cream and sponge cake) underneath.

It was one of the best dessert I've ever had.

To finale were three mini creations, which included cannoli and tiramisu. 

The overall dinner experience was one of the best I've ever had. The attentive service, the modern minimalist setting and the food were just perfect.

Hopefully I will get to meet the chef, Andrea Aprea, next time I'm dining at VUN.

Last but not least, a photo of the elegant foyer of the Park Hyatt.
