We were first served with clear broth which was not too salty and had mini tofus drifting happily with mini spring onions. A warm start to dinner.
My squid ink pasta (NO4) had a couple pieces of squid topped with lettuce that had what-I-believe cod roes on it. It was black, really black. It did not taste of the ocean whatsoever but had a certain kick to it, just makes you want to eat more. Unfortunately, pasta was semi-drenched in olive oil. With a little stir, it gave my pasta (and my mouth) a shiny shine.
Exchanged some pasta with a friend who had one with duck (No5). The pasta is 'da bomb. The moment you put it into your mouth, it just burst with awesome duck aroma flavours that fills your senses completely. Its that good. The duck pieces were slight tender and the duck skin was oh-so-oily-but-crisp-good. Highly recommended.
Another friend gave up her pasta (No6) and I had a go at it. Neapolitian sauce with zucchini, capsicium, pork(i think), onions and a sunny side wobbling egg. The sauce was packed with flavours which coated the veggies well. Coupled with tabesco-like sauce, it dish was just a delight.
Having had seats walled away from the main area, time flew. The service was good and we left at closing time with a happy heart and stomach.
