Dinner @ Cacio E Pepe

September 16, 2010 in Italian by thywhaleliciousfay


Dish #1: Carpaccio Di Pesce Spada


Dish #2: Pizza al Prosciutto (Parma Ham)


Dish #3: Ravioli with Truffle Sauce (Not on menu)


Dish #4: Rack of Lamb


Dish #5: Rum Lava Cake

And I am so glad my girlfriend and I were not put off by the slight inaccessibility of the place. The food was simply yummy! If I really had to choose, I would say my favourites were Ravioli with Truffle Sauce and Rack of Lamb! =)

I am thinking of making a trip back cause apparently, their signatures dishes are Spaghetti Alle Vongole and Risotto Pescatore which we din manage to try! Roar.

They were polite. When our three main courses were served, the lady advised us to start on our ravioli as it’s better to consume it warm!
Ambience:
The decor is very simple. White, grey walls with the shop front being a huge glass.

Dinner @ La Strada

July 7, 2010 in Italian by thywhaleliciousfay


My girlfriends and I went to La Strada for dinner. For appetiser, we shared the Proscuitto Di Parma Con Melone which I thought the melon was too sweet. In the sense of, the melon’s sweetness overpowered the saltiness of the parma ham. Hmm…

As for main courses, we had Linguine Alla Gamberi, Linguine Alla Vongole and Chittara Alla Carbonara. And the carbonara was good! My favourite truffle was used in the dish too. However, the sauce used for Linguine Alla Gamberi left a slightly bitter after taste which I did not like.

And finally, for desserts, we had Crostata Al Limone E Mascarpone and Torta Cioccolato Con Caramelo Salato which I liked both.

So yes. It was an enjoyable night!

Dinner @ Le Bon Marche [CLOSED]

July 4, 2010 in French by thywhaleliciousfay

Met my girlfriends for dinner at Le Bon Marche before one of them was to fly off for Penang. And I still find it amazing that she is spending seven days in Penang. (^^lll) Are there really so many things to do there? Keke.


Complimentary Starter


Main Course #1: Duck Confit (Non traditional)


Main Course #2: Steak (Beef)


Main Course #3: Pork Neck

And dinner was awesome! Seriously. It’s not just because I was in the wonderful company of my girlfriends. The restaurant’s service was top notch, while the food was simply finger-licking good! And oh… Throw in some juicy conversational topics for us females to debate on too. Haha.


And check this out! Seasalt Crusted Whole French Seabass for $100! Super expensive! But a table happened to order that, and when the fish was served, it looked so good! Which my girlfriends and I immediately figured it was not that expensive if the fish was to be shared among three. No prizes for guessing what we’ll be ordering when we return to Le Bon Marche! Haha. =p


Dessert #1: Cherries


This was served complimentary. And the staff was really cute. He introduced it as “French Strawberry Soup” before continuing to say “But better known as smoothie to Singaporeans.” And yes, the soup tasted like smoothie! Haha. And it was also this same staff who impressed us with his top notch service. Very attentive. Very professional. Very friendly.


Dessert #2: Poached Prunes


Dessert #3: Souffle

And the desserts did not fail to deliver. They were so good! My favourite would be the cherries.
