my RI friends decided to visit national museum & have lunch, so 3 of us met for lunch at concetto @ the cathay on 23.9.2015.^^
another 2 friends joined lunch afterwards, so 5pax.
concetto set lunch menu S$22.90
last time i had the set lunch here was on 10.2.2015.
prices have gone up from S$20.90 to S$22.90, inflation i guess, but for me it’s still a good deal.
i missed the YMCA (that being nearest to concetto & national museum & cheaper parking rates) carpark entrance, so parked at park mall & walked over to the cathay. concetto looks out onto the road, and is bright & airy.
we all ordered the concetto pasta – an interesting chilled capellini dish.
it was not quite the famous chilled capellinin at da luca or gordon grill or of course gunther.
still it was pretty flavourful & unique. & ala carte price is just S$4.90! :-)
i like the previous version – chilled capellini with crab & prawn tartare (tiny morsels) tossed in lobster oil & topped with lobster foam & ikura (salmon roe) – a lot better though.
think they should just revert to the previous version, full-stop!
i pushed away most of the mayonnaise. this drier version was heavier, less refine but still tasty. i had the kurobuta pork cheeks.
it had this impressive squid-ink calligraphy, haha! ^^
the kurobuta was super, melt-in-the-mouth.
& the gnocchi & sauce were very good. this the best dish for me.
we ordered different main courses to share & try.
salmon was done beautifully.
plating & presentation were top class!
with cous cous & pickled shallots, and the tasty & crab bisque pretty foam.
the chicken was good too & nice presentation too.
taste was pretty good, just chicken nothing special out of the ordinary though.
for me, kurobuta was no 1, salmon next & last chicken.
my good friend on the other hand liked the salmon best.
i only tried the pistachio panna cotta here nefore.
this time we ordered the tiramisu. again it was so pretty!
it was kind of deconstructed.
as a dessert, i think it was rather good, and i would order it next time.
as a tiramisu, i think my own tiramisu is much better, both in flavours especially coffee & liquor, & also texture.
the pistachio panna cotta was as good as last time.for a change, i will try the tiramisu next time though.
for me the only complaint was the poor service. the young guy was unhelpful, tidak apa & very poor in his service attitude. towards the end though his attitude improved from poor to ok. think he just needed some service training. the lady server was ok.
the 3-course set lunch was S$22.90, to me great value-for-money! there is a supplement of S$3 for the salmon.
