Reviews

From the Burpple community

We prefer to uncover hidden gems, revisit our favourites or support a F&B outlet in our wishlist after the hype has died down, which we can also avoid queuing in long lines. One such place that we have shortlisted for quite some time is Cicheti and the perfect opportunity arises for a New Year Day’s dinner at their Kandahar Street restaurant.

As there were only both of us, we got one of their wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, a pasta and dessert to share. Pictured is the Salsiccia ($15) with a tomato sauce base and topped with mozzarella cheese, fennel pork sausage, red onion, scallion and chilli. The perfect balance of tangy, sweet, savoury and spice for this pizza makes it an excellent choice, added with the visually appealing “leopard spots” of the pizza blisters. For the pasta, we got the Whole Wheat Stracci ($28) which has made numerous rounds on Instagram for the homemade pappardelle cooked with prawns, n’duja pork, red wine, garlic and scallion. We ended the meal with the Crack Pie ($12.50), paying homage to Christina Tosi’s creation for the Momofuku Milk Bar.

Eggplant and pizza are surprisingly matching! The crust is abit salty for me through.

I remember watching the Christina Tosi episode on Chefs Table. She shared the story of how she created the eponymous Crack Pie out of desperation, with almost nothing left in her kitchen. However, this dessert I had was neither awe-inspiring nor remarkably delicious. A visit to Milk Bar is imperative.

I remember being impressed because the squid ink flavour really came through. More often than not, squid ink is a connotation of colour rather than taste. In this dish, I could really taste the slight squidy taste in the pasta, which went very well with the crab meat. The tomatoes were probably added for colour, but I wished they had used chillies or something.

The litmus test of a good calamari (or tempura for that matter) is whether the batters slides off the squid. In this case, the two had bonded very harmoniously. The burnt lime was not a gimmick. It added an even greater depth to the acid which every deep fried dish needs.

$26 & $28 respectively before gst

Okay TLDR just get it you won't regret it (especially the lamb papardelle)

also sorry for the crappy photo

The gnocchi was cooked w forest mushrooms & truffle ricotta. No surprise that it's a pretty lemak dish so I'd recommend it for sharing. But yea the soft sinking texture of the gnocchi pasta and how it soaks up the earthy mushroom sauce is immaculate⚡️

Ok but the true star of the night is the lamb papardelle. It's lamb sugo sauce, which is supposedly more fluid/less chunky than your usual ragu. You've got your tang from the tomato, the smooth depth of GOOD QUALITY EVOO, and of course the chunks of minced lamb that wasn't too gamey. It's got a very "homey" comforting quality to it, which i like. Honestly, this might be my personal fav pasta dish in SG. pls lmk if u disagree, i'm open to discourse

5/5 for papardelle
4/5 for gnocchi just cos i'm not a gnocchi person
