Made reservations for Saturday dinner, to celebrate a birthday. Was pleasantly surprised to discover that we would be seated in a private dining area. Nice.
Ordered ala-carte dishes. We had five pasta and two meat items. Complimentary bread (foccacia and walnut) was served meanwhile. For starters, we had duck breast salad and prosciutto with buffalo mozarella.
Sharing the mains was fun, and allowed everyone to have a taste of everything.
For pasta, we had Arrabiata (spicy tomato sauce penne with garlic) done al-dente and it was refreshing with some spice. The Sakura-Ebi spaghetti tasted akin to Chinese hae-bee (dried shrimp) dish.
The Tagliatelle with wagyu bolognese and black truffle was fragrant. The bolognese was subtle though. Didn't quite enjoy the ravioli with lobster, in bisque sauce. Found the ravioli skin a tad too hard, and bisque sauce a bit too salty.
The Carbonara was quite a hit as it was the only cream based pasta on our table that night. Pancetta tasted rather like fatty pork, and liked the doneness of the spaghetti.
The beef cheeks braised in red wine sauce with acacia honey was nicely tender and flavourful. The iberian pork loin was done medium well. Kind of fatty, but definitely tender. Yums.
Kudos to the maitre d' for taking care of us that night. The birthday memento was a nice touch as well.
