Singapore - Dinner at Mario Batali's Osteria Mozza

klyeoh | Jul 6, 2011 06:04 AM

Osteria Mozza is the more upmarket part of Mario Batali's restaurant duplex at Marina Bay Sands (the other one was the casual Pizzeria Mozza next door).

Osteria Mozza meant business - service was top-notch (our super-efficient waiter was Swedish, don't ask me how we ended up with a Swede serving Italian food in an American casino in Singapore).

What we had that evening:

Amuse geule - goat's cheese on crisps. Delightful ;-)

Starters
=======
- Crispy pig's trotter croquette with frisee, apple & mustard. A tad oily for our taste.
- Cotechino pork sausage with Umbrian lentils - nice!
- Bufala mozzarella with pesto, salsa romesco, tapenade & caperberry relish - wonderful!

Entrees
=======
- Pollo Scarpariello with Luciano sausage & olive oil-fried bread - outrageously delicioso :-D
- Brasato al Barolo - braised short-ribs with horseradish gremolata. Absolutely divine.
- Sagne with guanciale, tomato & spicy pickled peppers. This dish was surprisingly spicy, perhaps a nod to local Singaporean tastes.

Desserts
========
- Cannoli di Gelati - gelato-filled cannoli's, which came in 3 flavors: caramel, pistachio & espresso. A bit of a disappointment here as we didn't expect frozen ice-cream filling in our cannolis - we preferred the traditional creme-filled ones;
- Torta della Nonna - a traditional cheesecake with chestnut honey & pinenuts. This was a tad drier than we'd liked.

Very satisfying meal, albeit a rather meat- and cream-rich one!
