Love the pastas!

Although I'm not a fan of Italian food, I sometimes find myself craving for pastas. When that happens, Garibaldi is where I go. They have a good selection of pastas and cooked really well. This place is definitely my favourite for pastas. Highly recommended!

Restaurant week lunch

Restaurant week rolled on by again but unfortunately we were pretty packed and only managed to squeeze in a lunch at Garibaldi on a Saturday afternoon.

While my last visit to Garibaldi was over 7 years ago, the interior looked like it hadn't changed much; sombre and minimalistic with the wine racks featuring prominently in the background. A window table was offered and gladly accepted. Tables are fairly large albeit placed a little too close to each other and the place is a hot bed for noise when operating at full capacity so we had to raise our voices to carry out a conversation.

Complimentary Bread - Served warm, the foccacia was crusty with a soft and airy center. We had seconds.

Seasonal Seafood Salad With Cold Angel's Hair, Smoked Caviar & Chilled Spicy Tomato Soup - A mildly spicy, tart and chilled broth coupled with fresh seafood (shrimp, octopus, fish etc) and a little less than al dente angel hair pasta. Topped with a small spoonful of rather inferior caviar (can't complain for the price though!). Still a pretty decent eat though and I particularly liked how the coldness of the pasta and soup gave it a mildly refreshing spin from the norm. 

Fettuccine With Hokkaido Scallop, Truffled Cream Sauce & Chives - The fettuccine was al dente whilst the truffle cream sauce gave it a nice creamy taste that didn't threaten to overwhelm the senses. The scallop slices, though relatively generous, were a little bland and on the soft side, which highlighted the lack of contrast in both texture and taste of this dish. Still a decent eat nonetheless. 

Valrhona Chocolate & Extra Virgin Olive Oil Mousse With Crispy Caramelized Hazelnut & Macadamia Nuts Sauce - I quite enjoyed this sweet ending to our meal. Smooth valrhona chocolate mousse sitting atop a thin slice of limp sponge and topped with a crisp caramelised hazelnut crumble that threatened to stick to my teeth at every possible instance. Couldn't quite make out the olive oil though. 

As with alot of the more "upclass" restaurants, Garibaldi charges an additional fee for their restaurant week meals (for lunch it's $15++/pax more), which works out to be almost $95 for 2 pax. Not too expensive but food quality, though above average, seems to have gone down a few notches since my last visit (maybe comparatively the competition has improved/intensified since then). Service this time round was friendlier though and that is definitely a good thing!

For the full reivew, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/11/garibaldi-italian-restaurant-bar.html The swanky restaurant may seem, at first brush, intimidatingly posh and severely stiff, but the warm, inviting service immediately puts one at ease. 

And, for a fine-dining spot, the food is portioned rustically. Exemplary cooking aside, such is the generous portioning that the pricing becomes so very value-for-money.

We had:

1) Free-Range Poached Eggs ($26) layered upon a pool of truffle potato cream and sauteed porcini mushrooms, and crowned with White Truffle shavings ($60 at $10 per gm). This was seasonal food at its orgasmic best, masterfully exquisite and beautifully executed.

2) Prosciutto di Parma con Gnocco Fritto ($26): crisp battered and fried morsels of chewy romagna dough encircled by pink ribbons of the finest Italian Parma ham.

3) Ravioli al Funghi Porcini ($30): bite-sized pockets of veal slathered in a velvety porcini mushroom cream - Hearty and comforting but so very refined. 
 
4) Acquerello Risotto Mare ($36): perfectly al dente, brimming with a rich lobster consomme, and dotted liberally with squid rings, fish, and fat bouncy prawns, all perfectly cooked as well.
