Rach: I usually don’t feel like blogging about mainstream chain cafes. But I had good lighting that day! Partially because the cafe looks like a green house (well, technically glass house) which allowed a vast amount of sunlight to shine in. So some pictures to whip up that appetite of yours! It was practically like a ghost town in Raffles Place on a Saturday, hence the cafe was rather serene. It would be a nice place to chill which some friends or alone (just bring some magazines, drink some tea, have some cakes), so… very… peaceful~~~
On to the ordering! There was a 1 for 1 promotion. Unfortunately there was only three of us. We could have gotten another dish for free but we weren’t feeling like cows that day. Why waste food just because it’s free right?
ED: Molto delizioso! That directly translate as “very delicious” in Italian! Say it out loudly with ridiculously exaggerated hand gestures as though worshiping the Gods and you’ll pass off as a true Italiano. But of course if you ever do that in a local Italian restaurant you’ll prolly receive bulging eyed stares from aunties.
Usually, I would judge an Italian restaurant based on their Pizzas and their Alio Olio. Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino (Spaghetti with Garlic, Olive Oil & Chili Peppers) is a traditional Italian pasta dish that can be made cheaply without seasonal or expensive ingredients. However, i had some caviar left in the fridge and decided to pimp up my Aglio Olio using caviar instead of parmesan cheese (;
