Almaty, Kazakhstan - Fab Italian Dinner at Del Papa

klyeoh | Nov 30, 201406:59 AM     1

Del Papa is one of Almaty's most popular Italian spot, and with good reason - great location downtown, cosy decor, efficient service, and very good cooking.

What we had this evening:

- Homestyle bruschetta mix, a selection of 4 types of bruschetta: tomato & red onion, chicken & arugula, Parma ham & tracchino, and marinated bell pepper.

- Salmon carpaccio with pesto and rose pepper. Delish.

- Beetroot salad with feta cheese and pine nuts: smallish helping of beetroot which was perhaps diced too finely. Insufficient amount of feta cheese, and the local pine nuts here were smallish and not toasted enough.

- Salmon fillet in creamy lemon sauce: the fillet was slightly over-cooked - should have been slightly pink at the centre, but the creamy sauce was rich and tasty.

- Lamb shank in vegetable sauce: a favourite among lamb-loving local Central diners. The melt-in-your-mouth lamb shank was smothered with an intense tomato-bell pepper-onion sauce, with a hint of oregano.

- Beef osso buco: done perfectly generous portion of slow-stewed beef, and fatty-rich marrow. I ordered roasted vegetables as a side.

Don't miss the mulled wine (red wine, orange, apple, spices and mint) which is available all year round here, not just around Christmas season. There is also a non-alcoholic version available.
