#02-138F Marina Square Shopping Centre
Today was the Justice class outing and as usual, the guys (Alvin, David, Jeremy, Harry, Kai Sheng, Yong Rui, Ricky, Zhang Rui, Yang Qian and Ho Ting) outnumbered the girls (only Glyn, Yoke Yee and I).
My Salmon with Red Wine-Olive Butter ($18.50++) is quite ordinary. It’s grilled and served with seasonal vegetables and roasted red skin potatoes. What I don’t like is that too much oil was used and the vegetables were not drained properly. See the small scoop of purplish stuff sitting on top of the salmon? At first, I thought it was yam but it turned out to be very salty butter.
The Rotisserie Cacciafore ($18.50++) is tender chicken in a spicy garlic red wine sauce, baked with cheese and served with spaghetti.
The Grilled Chicken Primavera ($16.50++) is tossed with wood-grilled sliced chicken, broccoli, peas, mushrooms and carrots in garlic and olive oil with a hint of chili flakes.
The Pork Chops ($18.50++) are grilled center cut chops and served with roasted potatoes and Italian vegetables like zucchini.
The Crayfish and Tenderloin Combo ($22.90++) is a new item on the menu. There’s sautéed crayfish in spicy neapolitan sauce, topped with mozzarella and grilled tenderloin seasoned with blackened spices.
The Chicken Scaliopini ($17.50++) is just a pasta dish with chicken medallions sautéed in a lemon butter sauce with bacons, tomatoes and mushrooms.
The Fettuccine Quattro Formaggio ($14++) is definitely something I wouldn’t order. The pasta is tossed with a rich and creamy alfredo sauce with 4 types of cheese.
The Crispy Soft Shell Crab “Arrabiata” ($19.50++) has the black pepper crab sitting on a bed of spaghetti, tossed garlic, olive oil, prosciutto ham, mushrooms and a spicy arrabiata sauce.
Due to our large number, we were seated outside alfresco style. I’m glad that the waiters didn’t forget about our existence and always top up our glasses promptly without us asking for it.
food at this place is decent enough but nothing to write home about. I think more authentic Italian food can be found elsewhere at the same prices.
