#02-138F Marina Square Shopping Centre
6337 9156

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 Lasagna ($13.50++) is layered with ricotta cheese filling, meat sauce and mozzarella.

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.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
