gastronomia

I never heard of this cafe until my friend told me. My friend ordered the tiramisu cup for $7.50 and I ordered chocolate caramel cake for $8.80 . At the first look, all these cakes does not seem appetizing as they are all packed in a plastic box ... Look like those packed cake. However, the taste is amazing especially tiramisu. The texture of the tiramisu is just nice and creamy. We both agreed this is one of the best tiramisu cake we ever had. As chocolate fan, I also like chocolate caramel cake. There is quite a lot caramel cake out there but most of them are too sweet. This is just nice and I love it too. The topping on top remind me of rabbit .... If u have rabbits, u would know wat i mean. Overall, it is quite a nice place to hang out with ur friends to have a nice dessert. There are also other outlets around Singapore.

Unbearably salty bean salad & sauteed mushroom

I've always been a huge fan of Da Paolo, including Gastronomia when it was first opened. However, my experience on 27 Feb 2012, has caused me to review my opinion of Gastronomia.

This day, I ordered a portion of bean salad & sauteed mushrooms for take away. I've always favoured these items which have been consistently proven to be good. However, when I tried these items on this day, they were unbearably salty that I spat out the food immediately. It tasted like the chef had poured in a whole barrel of salt & served up the food for sale without tasting his/her food. I also hope that the salt that I taste is indeed salt & not MSG, as that will cause me a whole host of different problems.

This is a mistake which one would not expect a well-established Italian food eatery to make. If the chef had issues tasting the food or was unsure, his/her colleague's help should have been sought for tasting. This experience causes me to recommend Gastronomia cautiously to friends & going forward I will ask to taste all cooked items/salads should I choose to buy from them again.

Da Paolo saves the day

Whenever we are too lazy to cook, Da Paolo always saves the day. The lasagna (beef and vegetarian) never fails. Lasagna has never been my thang, but after having tried the lasagna from Da Paolo, I am a convert. I think they make it better than most Italian restaurants/cafes. It is not too cheesy and the proportion of meat / fillings to the pasta sheets are just right.  

It comes in a plastic tub that is good for 2 servings. As we do not have a microwave at home, we normally put it in the ovenette for 20 mins to warm it. Another option is to steam it over a pot of boiling water for 10 mins.

If you have a sweet tooth, the Tiramisu is as good as the one served in the restaurant. (Yes and it comes in a plastic tub, good for two servings.)

I only wish they open more outlets.

Banoffee tart

Big on price and, fortunately, taste

Having never stepped into an actual Da Paolo restaurant myself (and having no concrete plans to do so in the future), I can't be certain of how close the gourmet shop's food is to the "real thing", but it's still very good from what I've tried.

Spinach & ricotta-stuffed cannelloni ($8.50) - I'm adverse to nuking my food in a microwave oven, and so as I heated it up on the pan, it filled the whole kitchen with the lovely aroma (or pong, if you don't like cheese) of ricotta. There are 3 pieces, each about the size of 2 D batteries put together. They're not stingy with the minced spinach and the ricotta is as rich as the aroma suggests.

Cous cous with sweet potato and wild rocket ($3.50/100g) - A very interesting blend of flavours and textures is present: the 2 different kinds of sweetness from the soft sweet potatoes and the raisins, the nutty taste of the cous cous grains and the bitterness of the rocket. Quite refreshing although it continues to absorb water from your mouth after ingestion!

Banoffee tart ($8) - It's damn expensive but it's also a massive serving best had in 2 sittings or shared with a significant other. The toffee is very smooth and very sweet, the bananas are soft without being mushy (although the sweetness of the toffee often masks its flavour), and under that cream and chocolate, it's such a sinful delight. The tart pastry is unremarkable, a little dry and, no, doesn't make it less 'jerlak'.

Chocolate chip scone ($3.50) - A single piece can make for a very filling breakfast, and can also be had over 2 days. As expected, it's dry, a bit buttery and crumbly (get your own clotted cream if you want to). The chocolate is definitely Valrhona. 'Nuff said.

The staff were helpful as well and didn't appear the least bit grumpy. Yes, the items are still pricey, but some of them can be managed into more than 1 sitting. I'll be back for banoffee and scone fixes.
