The kind folks from La Braceria Pizza and Grill invited Skai aka c(hubby), BFF and I to try out La Braceria’s Italian favourites. These latest additions were crafted by their newly appointed Chef Giovanni Minarelli.
With more than a decade’s experience as Head Chef at various restaurants in Italy, Chef Giovanni brings with him a wealth of culinary experience and creativity. Tucked away in the quaint shop houses in the food enclave of Bukit Timah, the restaurant is the perfect dining spot for both families and friends. With its down-to-earth décor and modern charm, the restaurant has been endorsed by the Embassy of Italy for its authenticity.
We started with some freshly baked bread.
After that, we were served the Foie Gras al Limoncello which is Foie Gras served with Parma Ham and Melon alongside a shot of Limoncello. I really enjoyed the starters. You can’t go wrong with Parma Ham! The Foie Gras was perfectly cooked and I was left craving for more! The Limoncello was a nice touch! Some found it a bit strong but I thought it was perfect!
The Antipasto di Mare (Seafood Salad with Three Types of Fish and Seafood) was a bit of a miss for me. It wasn’t that it was bad, but it wasn’t that awesome. I felt that the items I tried were pretty ordinary and could be found at anywhere else.
The Panzerotti di Pasta Fresca alla Burrata con Pomodorini Cherry e Basilico (Ravioli with Fresh Burrata served with Cherry Tomatoes and Basil) may not be the prettiest dish ever (it was tough taking a pic of it!) but it was definitely a very comforting dish. After trying my hand at making Ravioli previously before, I definitely appreciate the effort behind this simple dish.
The Capelli di Angelo con Salsa di Peproncino (Angel Hair Pasta with Hot Chilli Peppers) could get a bit jelak. Would highly recommend sharing this with your dining companion!
The Costata di Wagyu (Grilled Tomahawk Wagyu Bone-in Steak) reminded Skai and I of the Florentine Steak we had in Italy. It was huge, it packs a bunch and is not for wussies. The Tomahawk comes with a healthy serving of vegetables. Some parts of the steak could get a bit too fatty for most of us to handle though. Overall, I would still order the steak again!
This was how huge it was! Pic taken by the awesome BFF.
