Crispy salads, delicately prepared entrees of lamb, lobster and duck, along with seafood-loaded appetizers make up this menu’s small and selective menu. For light antipasti, their mille foglie, filled with mixed mushrooms, goat cheese, spinach and raspberry coulis is refreshing. For the main course, Modo’s house specialty is their roasted duck breast on braised endive, simmering in a natural reduction and orange segments. Lamb chops are simmered in thyme reduction for extra flavour, while pheasant breast stuffed with mushrooms and truffle goat cheese with a pink peppercorn reduction is simply marvelous. Pan roasted tilapia suddenly becomes sensationally-ritzy when caviar is drizzled on top.
Step inside this stylish restaurant and you’ll immediately notice a pair of tall bronze statues that were exclusively sculptured in Indonesia for Modo. Draped in rich colours and accented with eclectic imported furnishing, this stylish restaurant has captured the ambiance of a far away exotic destination.
Sticky Sweet Gelato
Sticky sweet gelato gets an unexpected twist with fresh fruit and nuts mixed on top. Delicious vanilla gelato is loaded with cognac poached pears and honey, while traditional chocolate gets a boast with white chocolate shavings and cognac. Not to be missed are their tiramisu flavour loaded with biscotti bits and their orange gelato with burned brandy orange rind. Save some room with your partner and try Modo’s version of crème brulée, which is a classic vanilla bean crème brulée served with fresh berries.
