Dishes we got: Trofie with Crab, Asparagus and Mint salmoriglio ($25) and Grilled Swordfish ($30)

Review: I was really disappointed with my pasta, because the trofie was undercooked (you could still see the raw flour when you cut into the pasta), and the taste of garlic was really overwhelming in the dish. It overpowered the mint so you couldn’t tell that there was mint in the dish at all. The flavors were nice for the first few monthfuls, but it became too heavy after awhile.

My partner had the swordfish, it was generally quite well cooked. Despite swordfish being quite a dense fish, it still retained some moisture and wasn’t too dry.

Ordered their Lamb Chops with Guanciale ($32), Wagyu Beef Cheek ($28), Trofile with Crab & Nduja ($24) & Duck Legs Confit ($26) & Truffle Fries ($12).

For the Trofile with Crab & Nduja, it was a disappointment to me. It is my first time trying Trofile and I find that it is tough. The crab & nduja inside is not that great. The Lamb Chops was smaller than I expected. I expect it to be of a regular size which was also a disappointment. One saving of the Lamp Chops would be the vegetables which is the side. The Lamb Chops would be better if it was bigger and a sauce for it.

The star of the show would be Wagyu Beef Cheek, the meat is soft and tender. You don't even need a knife to cut the meat. Upon the meat enter a person's mouth, it just disintegrate and melt in your mouth.

The Duck Legs Confit & Truffle Fries is delicious as well. However, I would prefer the Duck Legs Confit to be Grill or baked which is the tradition and not fried.

I think this replaces the popular Tagliolini, Crab & Ndjua. Nevertheless, it's equally yummy! Trofie is a short, thin, twisted pasta , originated from Liguria, North Italy. This dish is a Tomato based crabmeat pasta. The Nduja gave the sauce more robust and the streamlined grainy texture of the Trofie held the sauce perfectly . Entertainer App gives you 1 for 1 on this awesome plate of goodness. Whatchu waiting for ?


Top: Pork chop milanese w tomatoes and ruffle mayo ($32).. meat taste bland and stiff.. definitely not worth the price..
Bottom: Tagliolini w crab and Nduja ($24) the crab meat and Pork fuse well with the pasta and sauce..will recommend this instead...


Surprisingly tasty 😋

Located right smack in the cbd area, it offers affordable lunch sets. We had the Tagliolini, Crab & Nduja pasta. Pasta was well coated with the rich sauce. It was simply tasty!

Top left: Crab and Nduja Tagliolini. Tastes alright but not wow. Also a pity that the crab meat was too finely shredded that I couldn't quite taste nor feel it on my tongue.

Top right: Beef Ravioli stuffed with finely minced wagyu, made even more delectable with shaved cheese toppings. Another plate of this for me please!

Bottom left: Eggplant Parmigiana, disappointingly bland and could do with much more cheese. At $16, this ties with the beef ravioli as the most expensive dish amongst the 4. Are eggplants so costly?!

Bottom right: Baccala Cakes with Sea Urchin Sabayon. Already quite flavorful on their own, these cod fish balls are even more delicious when dipped into the creamy uni sauce, yummy!
