As far as bologneses go, this one is serviceable. To develop a truly flavourful sauce, plenty of aromatics such as celery, carrot, onion, garlic and bay leaf need to be cooked down before tomato sauce is added. And the meatballs while large, could be more tender and juicy. But then again I don’t come to a craft beer bar for pasta, I come for all the sinful deep-fried bar bites that go so well with beer.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @beerbasketkatong for the hospitality!

Taste: 3/5
