Their sourdough deserves a special mention as it is of excellent quality, perfectly crunchy crust with prominent fermented flavor and a fine inner structure.

Beginning the meal with a very simple yet sophisticated starter of a cured trout with lemony dust on top that is filled with umami flavor stimulating all the senses.

This is the most anticipated iconic dish of the restaurant. This is an all time classic done in an extraordinary manner, seriously the richest and one of the best carbonara I’ve tasted. The tagliolini is just perfectly al dente, and oh my, the creamy sauce is extremely decadent and with such rich depth of flavor. The crispy ham is a touch of genius that lifted all the flavors and balances the richness with that hint of saltiness.

Just when I thought nothing can top the carbonara, here comes the even richer even more indulgent risotto perfectly executed. Stunned with the black garlic sauce that brings a subtle sweet flavor in its savory profile. The Sicilian red prawns is so fresh and sweet that is simply gorgeous.

Just when we reached the peak moment of the meal, it started to go downhill. This blue lobster main cost an extra of $398, exactly the same price of the entire lunch course. And honestly not worthy at all. Yes there’s Alba white truffle shaved on top that is premium, but the smoked potato cream is very bland, I can hardly taste the smoky flavor, in fact the entire dish is somehow tasteless, only relying on the natural sweetness of blue lobster. Understand that the chef probably doesn’t want too much flavors to overpower the lobster but could use better complements to highlight the lobster.

Another lackluster main course with a rather dry pork ribs in a dark bbq glaze that is way too intense and heavy on salt and vinegar.

The dessert unfortunately was a Halloween mess 🙈 A tiny little disc of ‘bleeding’ chocolate pudding that looks sloppy and to be honest not very appetizing. It just has a very mellow chocolate flavor with a springy grainy texture that wasn’t very pleasant mouthfeel. Expected better effort from a fine western restaurant. What was a decent lunch experience was degraded by this uninspiring dessert.

I would highly recommend to try their pasta dishes that were remarkable but they may need a rethink on the main and desserts.
