Last Saturday, we all made an effort to clear all appointments and met up for our ‘makan’ session. This place’s chosen because of a recommendation by NinjaHK. This place is think is also one regular reader of this blog, ‘ice’ had an ‘interesting’ discussion before. 😉
A very simple looking shop named after the owner/chef.
The deep fried calamari was the first to come out. $14. It’s coated and deep fried with a batter that’s a little different, more crispy. It goes well with the tartare sauce and lemon.
It did reminded me of the spanish calamari I had last month in Spain. It’s a tad of extra saltiness that makes it nice I suppose 😉
The Italian Antipasto. $30.
We ordered this to try the Parma Ham Melon 😉 It comes with olives, caprese salad & grilled vegetables.
It’s delicious I tell you.
For the pizza, we asked the waiter for their recommendation. We were told this Rustica Pizza $18 is a popular choice. It’s made of tomato, cheese, Italian pork sausages and button mushroom.
This piece is going into my mouth.
Asked about their pasta, their recommendation for pasta is Spaghetti al Cartoccio. $22
It’s spaghetti with saute squids, scallops, prawns, clams and mussels in light tomato sauce, garlic and white wine. It’s bagged by the way. I like this.
This is the tiramisu that Chef Mario gave as complimentary because of an ‘incident’.
Read about it at Camemberu’s blog.
Might come back to try other things. We only ate 4 things out of the menu. 😉
