Italian Kitchen

January 15, 2014

Pasta Platter
(left to right)

Linguine Gamberi: Tiger prawns, capers, olives, roasted tomato aglio e ollo - 2

Lamb Pappardelle w lamb sausage, potatoes, cabbage, peperoncino, olive oil - 2

Truffled Spaghetti & Signature Meatballs w truffle cream, herbed ricotta - 2+

Penne Pomodoro - 2

J's comment > the truffled spaghetti earned the 2+, I find that the meatballs are usually hit and miss (miss for sure this meal). They were good on Sep 17, 2013 at the IK2Go window. The other pastas were either slightly overdone (linguine), sticky (papardelle) or undercooked (penne)

Burrata & Radicchio w spiced walnuts, honey, rosemary - 2

J's comment > not bad, but radicchio's bitterness definitely came through

Zeppole di Cioccolato: Italian style donuts, chocolate ganache, creme anglaise - 2

J's comment > not bad, but dough a bit thick for the chocolate filling inside (yes, yes, I know it's a donut, but you don't hear me complaining about Cartem's Earl Grey); you definitely need to drown the donut w the creme anglaise.
