Piso16 – my new favourite in town

Perched atop the 16th floor, Piso16 offers an enviable view of the city, lush, dark tropic interiors, a huge, huge bar and an amazeballs vibe overall. Next door neighbors to Royal China, they share the expansive spaces and view and yes, the stellar quality of food and cocktails.

Drinks

We started our amazing luncheon with Aurum. They are also doing in-house barrel aging by mixing different spirits to give you the perfect cocktail. Also, one of the best, potent sangrias.

The gastronomic journey started with 3 extraordinary things:

Baked Brie, Sous Vide chicken medallions and a small portion of Smoked Pumpkin soup.

Normally I don’t go for something like a soup for the simple predicament of places getting them horribly wrong, however, Piso16 just had that vibe of kick-ass, really kick-ass preparations and we were not wrong, it was perfect with a smoky flavor along with pepper and herbs cutting in perfectly.┬áBaked Brie, served with poached plum, roasted beets, a drizzle of balsamic and topped with fried garlic. One of the most enticing and satiating entree dishes in the town.┬áSous Vide chicken medallions – minced, juicy chicken, lots of herbs, on a soft brioche and served with fresh salsa.

Mains

Kale and Sun-dried Tomato Roulade, another superfood, Kale whose properties are being talked about and Piso16 has the best one to make you fall in love with it: Kale and spinach sponge rolled with sun-dried tomatoes and a yellow pepper sauce, by far the healthiest and most amazing roulade. Another best, Spaghetti Carbonara. Wherever I have had it before it has been more like alfredo with bacon added to it, instead of an egg white sauce but this preparation by Chef Agnibh was absolutely mind-boggling. The perfect egg white and cream balance, loads of bacon and cooked to perfection, topped with parmesan and crispy. Lamb Corsica – pulled, braised lamb cooked with red wine and rosemary served with mashed potatoes and baby carrots and a peppery jus. Meatiest pulled lamb cut with creamy mashed potatoes. Stuffed chicken breast – packed with cheese and served with herbed jacket potatoes, herbs, and jus. Again, so much cheese, and yet juiciest chicken perfectly complimented by the potatoes.

Desserts

We wound up our meal with a Blueberry Cheesecake and Lemon Tart. A light mascarpone and whipped cream, a dark chocolate crusty base served with blueberry compote. The dark chocolate crust added a completely new dimension to the dish. I have never been a fan of lemon tarts but this perfectly baked buttery tart shell and the subtle flavors clubbed with meringues made us polish it off in an instant.

After a long time on exiting a restaurant I knew that I was going to be back here really soon. There wasn’t any dish less profound than the other and you absolutely have to try all their creations.
