Housemade Ricotta

$15.00 · 6 Reviews

Ricotta, chestnut honey, thyme ($14) - the ricotta was incredibly fresh and creamy and went perfectly with the crispy, slightly charred sourdough. Again, my only gripe is that it was a smaller portion than expected for the price - I was hoping for more bread and ricotta as it was gone in a few bites. From pictures from other reviews for Caffe Fernet on Burpple, the amount of ricotta and the number of slices of sourdough (originally 3!) has certainly decreased, and this left me feeling pretty disappointed.

Sweet riverside views aside, this joint along Collyer Quay also serves up Italian fare sure to impress. Start with the house favourite Housemade Ricotta ($15), drizzled with chestnut honey and served with crisp sourdough toast. On mains, don't leave without ordering the sublimely umami and peppery Mafaldine "Cacio e Pepe" ($25).

It’s the basics of bread and cheese but in a most poetic representation.
Served with crisp sourdough toast, the ricotta with chestnut honey and thyme does sound like a simple thing but it just tastes so darn good.
You ought not be surprised then if I say this is another item here that stays in my thoughts long after I have it.

Served with a unique tasting Chestnut honey, fresh Thyme and toasted Sourdough. One of my favourite go-to starters when I dine here.
PSA: Caffe Fernet now serving set lunches during lunch hours!
Last order stands at 230pm.

A MUST ORDER! I’ve been a fan of the marriage between ricotta and honey ever since I tried Cook & Brew’s whipped ricotta with truffle honey. Here it comes with a puddle of chestnut honey and a sprinkling of thyme. Armed with crusty sourdough slices, I could have easily polished this all off by myself!

Ricotta cheese with honey and toast. Great combination. This just opened cafe by the bay is a great place to relax after work. It serves tapas food with great variety of drinks to go with.
