Few days ago during BigFish's birthday (can I reveal your age?) I brought her to re-visit this Italian fine dining restaurant again. It was our first visit since many years ago when we just met! Can't blame me for that as this is a fine dining restaurant in Kota Kinabalu who carries many good reviews under their name; just to name a few here: Ferdinand's ranked No.1 among all restaurants in KK (by Tripadvisor.com), listed as one of the Best Restaurant in Malaysia (by the "richman guidebook" - Tatler Malaysia. Only 5 restaurants in KK were shortlisted) and they are definitely one of the best Italian in KK! Ferdinand's is the only fine dining restaurant run by 5-star hotel group - The Sutera Harbour at their Magellan Sutera Resort.
Mr Mas was our wait staff of the evening, he went through with us the menu and we decided to stick to the Ferdinand's Set Menu which is a 5 course meal.
The pairing of scallop with bacon and foie gras was perfect for me! Can I have a second one please?!
|Cream di Fungi Profumata al Tartufo|
Mushroom Soup Perfumed with Black Truffle
BigFish & I were all satisfied at this point =)

|Lemon & Lime Sorbet|
This was a short break between the starters and the mains. Sour from lemon & lime not only increased our appetite too but "reset" our tongue too!
|Her choice of Main Course: Merluzzo in Crema di Asparagi con Cozze e Patatine Naturali (Pan-fried Cod Fillet with Mussels and Boiled Potatoes on Green Asparagus Cream)|
The asparagus cream fit nicely with the Cod Fish, very balanced flavor
