good, rich, carb-and-cream-heavy sardinian cooking

good, rich, carb-and-cream-heavy sardinian cooking at this dark bar-restaurant in china square. everything was creamy, cheesy, buttery or pasta-y; very good for comfort-eating and hip-building. and, a glass of dry white to cut through.   my favorite was our pasta of paccheri with iberico pork and truffle. it was carby, with soft cheese stuffed between the layers, and a beautiful truffle fragrance – SO fantastic. so was the wagyu carpaccio, fragranted with a creamy truffled aioli. I would repeat both dishes in a heartbeat.

the only things that I didn’t like about this place was the noise level (crazy noisy, and terrible for conversation) and service (we barely got attention and the dishes came slow).

CHECK YOUR BILL CLOSELY!!!

Went there afterwork with a group of friends, had some drinks and food.
Had good moments until the bill came.
We noticed we were overcharged. Just two of us had some homemade coffee liquor shots: they charged 32 of them, but in a sneaky way, under some different names.
Even the manager seems to be part of the fraud:
- First words were ok we can cancel some drinks but not more than 7. As if we was used to those requests.
We went over the bill with the whole staff but even if they knew some of the drinks were not ours they just didn't care.
I've never been treated that way.

Place might be just fine for lunch but they really do not deserve any dollar.

Should have called the police to sort the all story out but who wants so waste it's Friday night?

DO NOT GO!

Excellent Italian Tapas on 4Oct2014

ee my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/10/05/excellent-italian-tapas-sons-bacaro-on-4oct2014/

went to sons bacaro for 6pax family dinner on 4.10.2014. :-) it was an excellent choice! food was good. dishes were served in small plates, kind of like italian tapas.

:-)the restaurant was by beppe devito. somehow i didn’t really fancy il lido much even with 50% for 2pax palate discounts (never tried it under palate actually) & it was “far away” in sentosa. maybe ought to consider trying some time. the place was chic as advertised on its website, which also showed menu items & prices. not really buzzy on a saturday evening (same for other chic restaurants on nankin street), a pity but no complaints from us…haha! sons was less than 50% full, and interestingly the other 5 tables looked mostly family like us. :-) we had the wagyu tagliata. it was good, chargrilled flavourful, tender, medium rare. :-) baccala (salt cod) cake with uni sauce was the best dish of the night.  thin crispy crust was excellent, minced salt cod was excellent, and great uni sauce combination. i would put the light cream, flavourful truffle pesto tagliatelle (top photo) as my second favourite for the night.  no feel of pesto though – not sure how a strong pesto flavour goes with subtle truffle scent. the roasted cod was very good. my wife & i both made very good cod ourselves at home. this though had better grilled flavours. the grilled kurobuta pork neck was very good, like a good char siew or thecharcoal broiled pork collar at imperial treasure teochew. maybe i should try & reinvent this dish at home again. i liked the iberico pork truffle paccheri too. very agreeable but i prefer the truffle pesto if asked to choose. burrata was fine, nothing like the supreme version in valentino, after all that cost 3x more. surprising the same uni sauce did not come out good on this carbonara dish. i would not order this. looked like ah bor ling – mochi dumplings..cheese was very strong, not sure if blue cheese. anyway i like blue cheese, but its not the most popular dish. we had a S$55 bottle of wine, 2 beers & 1 mojito. dinner for 6pax came to S$260nett, about S$30nett pax excluding drinks, pretty ok.

service by the western servers were ok,  not too friendly, kind of unsmiling. one server kept filling water to the glasses, a good thing.
 :-) lunch is cheaper. S$10 pasta etc. the street is quite interesting with mad poets gastrobar, platypus gourmet etc. will go back again.

good concept bar with italian tapas

First of all the drink price is quite good! If you are beer fan maybe not many selection of beer but they got some italian beer, easy going wine, few cocktails. I enjoyed happy hour cocktail($8) with free flow cicchetti. They also have good selection food with various ingredient. All the potions are tapas potion, quite creative menus and delicious. But i found most foods are too salty(Ordered 5 dishes and had to ask to get some water many times...) so maybe Son's is good concept bar to catch up drink with some nibbles rather than have a proper dinner.

Finally a small-plates venture I can get on board with!

For the full review, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/08/italian-bacaro.html

The food was excellent. Just about every small plate we had was masterfully executed, and beautifully plated. We thoroughly savoured our time here. That said, I would have appreciated if they turned down the deep house music a decibel or two. Or ten. I could hardly make out what my friend was saying all through our meal, so we ended up shouting at one another, and my ears were still ringing long after I'd left.

I think, part of the reason &Sons is such a popular drinking hole is the dazzling array of complimentary hor d'oeuvres. Free-flow of ribbons of silky Parma ham and honshimeiji-capped cheesy bruschettas are a sure-fire way of keeping customers sated.  

We had:

1) Calamari ($13): squid grilled so perfectly it died happy. The soft rings were barely adorned, simply imbued with the smoky char of the grill.

2) Wagyu Beef Carpaccio ($19): meltingly tender and moist, and enlivened with a creamy truffle-accented aioli.  

3) Gorgonzola Polenta with Mushrooms ($9): robust and rich but layered.
 
4) Iberico Pork and Truffle Paccheri ($16): Balanced and nuanced, this was sumptuous. 

5) Baccala Cakes ($15): packed with moist salted cod mash and coated with squid ink breadcrumbs, delectably crunchy. A lusciously velvety sea urchin sabayon sided thi
