Grossi Florentino. (:
Just thinking about the food we had last night, makes me hungry and makes me smile. From the first course of bread and extra virgin olive oil, to the ever famous Tiramisu for dessert. Everything was just perfect. and the icing on the cake? Meeting Guy Grossi himself! I never knew he worked there and would appear in the restaurant, going around to every table and asking if we enjoyed our meal. His humility, touched me. And baby said, my smile was wider than when I saw Gordan Ramsay during the Good Food and Wine Show! haha
There are a few people I have to thank for tonight :
My baby of course. Thank you for the wonderful meal (: Definitely the best meal I’ve ever had! hehe
Peggy and Paul for the recommendation! hehe
okie. enough of the logistics. time for the food! hehe. Now, don’t blink. Cause you would really want to sink your teeth into everything that we had last night. hehe
once we were seated, we were greeted with warmth, bread and the best quality of extra virgin olive oil and some olives!
and super duper long bread sticks that were super yummy!
i think we enjoyed the bread and bread sticks too much, finished them all! (:
time for our starters :
Tortellini di aragosta
Peggy told me that the Lobster Tortellini was a MUST. and so I did! (: And boy was I glad I listened to her. hehe it was SO GOOD! The burnt butter sauce complimented it so well.
I could definitely have more! (:
Ceviche di capesante
Baby had the scallop ceviche and I knew the reason why he ordered it. It’s cause he knew I love raw scallops. (: That’s how lucky I am. He would order something just cause he knew it’s something I like, and there’s more than 1 thing I wanted to try on the menu hehe. Thanks sweetie! (:
slices of scallops with a tinge of spice with an awesome vinaigrette. Pure yumminess. (:
by this time, we were so looking forward to our mains.
Anatra al vinsanto
yes. I know. it looks amazing. (: Simply put : Duck confit with roast duck breast and a mushroom tart.
breaking them down to the three separate components –
duck confit – with the meat falling off the bone. superb. really superb.
Roast duck breast – Perfectly cooked with crispy skin that was just full of flavour.
Mushroom tart. Just about the best tart I’ve had. The crust had a cheesy taste and just melts in your mouth.
Costata di manz
Baby’s aged rib steak that was so well cooked that it didn’t even need a sauce to company it.
it’s so good, it’s worth another look! (:
a perfect side to go with our mains : Fried potatoes with rosemary and garlic
Crispy on the outside. Tender on the inside.
see the smile on our faces? hehe (:
I love how they had their own glasses, plates and even their own wine! (:
for dessert : the best tiramisu !
I loved how they serve this dessert. It came our in a huge bowl, and was served table-side.
looking at all these pictures, it’s quite obvious why we were both really happy right?
Grossi Florentino – AMAZING !
