Also with Michelle too who has been wanting to try this place for almost as long as I wanna try to. Robertson Quay DOES NOT bring back good memories and I kept tripping over Carol even she got scared too!
Last day after Paeds and Pysch tests already, so damn tired I zoomed home to sleep, only to roll out for dinner later...
Anyway, we were all really amused how the waiters (sounded rather Phillipino to me) could rattle off names of these dishes it was amazing!! Super well trained and versed... and everything that rolled out of the kitchen all looked and smelt so good we were all dying to start!!Calamari Fritti Da Mario Style $16
I liked that this pizza was so light and crisp. First time eating crab meat on a pizza and it was quite nice, cos its the main star in the pizza with no other strong flavours to compete with it.Spaghetti Al Cartoccio : Saute Squids, Scallops, Prawns, Clams and Mussels in Light Tomato Suace, Garlic and white wine baked in foil
M was a little disappointed the dish came unfoiled (unlike the other tables when the foil was only unfolded when the dish was placed in front of the diners.....for dramatic effect?) but I think its quite gimmicky, given how it tasted quite ordinary to me. Its a tad too lightly infused and watery for me.
Again this was really really rich, and doused in extremely salty squid ink. Squid ink is much too salty for my taste.
This was really full of fluff and cream and not enough of the liquer we were all craving for.
Cos Carol left her wallet behind (and I didnt know Carol and Ian was gonna walk all the way to Clarke Quay!!!) I gave them a lift to town so Mich and I settled for a second round of desserts at KPO (1 Killiney Road, Killiney Post Office), instead of having desserts at Robertson Quay. Laurent's was packed (apparently Dedrick and Fish were there!) and there was an ice cream booth outside Laurents which we wanted to check out to. In between the time we split and Carol realised she lost her wallet we were trying to find Bella Pizza.
But my craze for their icecreams has started! Was whining about how ex it was ($5 a pop) and having second thoughts to go to Udders but we persisited!
I had Chivas ice and Baileys - Mich had Honey and Camomile, and Donatella.
The others were all really creamy - we concurred that the Honey and Camomile comes second, whilst Baileys for me, doesnt beat Haagan Daz's.
