A warm Italian restaurant that has an unique metropolitan setting has come out a new and revised menu in conjunction with its 10 year anniversary. 

Ricciotti Riverwalk presented a whole new concept, design and menu of its re-opening with a theme of " Benvenuti Casa ", meaning Welcome Home.

With its classy and chill out atmosphere is a good place for everyone to gather and entertain yourself as to celebrate life in this such warmth and comfy place.

 
I was Stunned !!! truly impressed by this awesome decorated painting by Italian Artitst. Honestly, it was frustrated forcing my eyes by not to keep staring on it. 

The background itself is to make the restaurant's dining concept to be more holistic and surrounded by the theme of Italian culture.

 
The Ricciotti Riverwalk itself even has a cozy and elegant style of private room. Convenient and good enough for small gathering and meeting.

 
More details to be founded in my blog http://cennds.blogspot.com.
I was there for the food tasting. Feel so grateful and excited !!! ~~~
------------------------------

Start with AntiPasti, meaning Starter


Cioppino Soup

Mixed seafood stew with garlic crostini. The fresh mussels and squid with no smelly smell are freshly come from Italy. Great to dip in the bread into the soup to have a good start kick of starter. This is the way they eat in their homeland.

The fresh seafood soup is really taste nice and serve well as a starter of your meal to comfort your hungry stomach .

 

Carpaccio Di Polpo

Sliced octopus with lemon and lennel dressing.
It is really doesn't looks like an octopus and neither tasted it as an octopus.

Yet tasted a bit weird when chewing in my mouth but with a combination of sliced orange makes me feel better.

 

Eggplant Parmigiana


Neither i am of favor of eggplant and rarely touch on eggplant.
But this baked eggplant with the mouth-watering tomato sauce in lasagne style and the melted cheese on the top layer utterly made me comfortable to touch on it.

Put the eggplant lasagne style on top of the focaccia bread and eat it together for excellent results.

 

Nizzarda Salad

Served with tasty sherry dressing that made the salad tastes good.
Alongside with Mesclun, fresh tuna loin which it really taste nice and warms up the salad, lovely special and cute quail eggs, green beans, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and anchovies.

 

Pollo Alla Milanese

Fried chicken AKA Breaded Chicken served with potatoes and tomato salad. The chicken breast not so tasted well compared to other dishes. But, it has a plus of it doesn't taste oily and i like the healthy tomato salad.

To have a more scrummy taste, you may squeeze the lemon on top of the chicken to have a citrus feeling.

 

Grilled Seabass

Fresh and yummy Seabass served with tomato concasse capers and baby spinach salad. The sauce serving in the tender flesh Seabass and the topping off small cut pieces tomato makes it so delightful.

The crispy croutons founded on the baby spinach salad doesn't make it lose to the Seabass. I couldn't resist to grab more and more croutons into my mouth

 

Risotto Ai Fruitti Di Mare

I am not a person who like to eat rice and most of the time i will refuse it. But the special of a bit sticky and cremy Arborio rice made me attempt to try And definitely no regret after i tried on it. Damn nice with the soaked fresh seafood.

 

Orecchiette Broccoli E Acciughe

Ear- shaped pasta with anchovies, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.
My first try of simple ear-shaped enjoyable pasta was tasted nice in my mouth and with the no-rawness cooked broccoli which it was cooked just right makes me like the healthy veggie ingredients pasta.

But, i think that it will be damn full quite fast while eating it too much.

 

9" Al Tartufo Pizza

OMG !! I was melted by this black truffles pizza of the Cheesy combination ingredients. The delectable black truffles pizza made together with quail eggs and mushroom is undoubted delight our buds. It serves the best dishes of the night.9" Porcini E Scamorza Pizza
Italian Food always not left out with the choice of Pizza.
And for Cheesy lover !! You gonna like this thin crust of appetizing pizza that served with Porcini mushrooms and flavorsome of cow's milk cheese

 

Panna Cotta

The silky and smooth vanilla cream pudding with a lovely complimentary seasonal fruit sauce makes it worth for the second try. The sauce is not sweet and just nice for the sweet-tooth. It comforts the pudding very well.Nutella Sweet Pizza

Located along the Riverwalk in Clarke Quay . The authentic restaurant gives a wonderful dinner with an excellent ambient that made me want to stay there longer to enjoy my night.

The delectable and appetizing wide range of food are truly attracts me for a 2nd visit.

It is absolutely no doubt that Ricciotti be the choice for everyone to hunters. its Italian dishes that has the setting of classic and cozy Italian themed restaurant.

CAFE REVIEW : Bucktile St Cafe OK Nov 22, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Desserts and Cakes | Ice Cream and Gelato

While google – ing a cafe that located nearby my place, i found a cafe situated not far away from my place. Tucked along the Faber hills Apartment - Faber Drive, though seems near from my place but I had a long way of walk to find out this hidden café.

 
The café name “Bucktile” is an anagram derived from Bucket List. Why said so ?
They have a Bucket of List for you to write on and paste it onto the Bucket List, as the owner hope that Bucktile St cafe can be one the places to visit. Btw, I have sticked my own smile

 
More details : http://cennds.blogspot.sg/2015/11/cafe-review-bucktile-st-cafe.html

If you are lucky enough and prefer to sit on sofa, you can aim the sofa seat at the corner. the sofa was quite cosy enough. It give you a feeling that you are lying down / sitting down at your own comfort sofa at home

 
PLEASE DO NOT BRING ME HOME ! Fine, we won't bring the table number home smile The calendar is adjustable so you can play around with the dice.

 
Earl Grey Lavender Cake.

Approaching the staff at the counter to recommend on what cake we should try. I was told to try " Early Grey Lavender " which is nicer as per her suggestion. I wasn't fancy enough with the Cake. The earl grey fragrance wasn't that strong and texture of the cake was not as smooth as per my expectation. Slightly dissapointed with the cake. It is more to instagram purpose.

 


Waffle drizzled with Maple Syrup


Original Waffle at the price of $4.40 is reasonable for the simple and plain waffle.

 
Chicken and Mushroom Pie with Fries

I would say the Pie is better than the cake. Crispy and puffy fries wtih a generous filling . The filling mushroom was nice with the fragrance sauce. I upgraded the fries to truffle fries

New Revamp Menu Harry's bar OK May 31, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Bars/Lounges

From time to time, we heard about Harry's. It has grown become a well established bar and dining place for beers, extensive selection of wines and stylish cocktails.

Recently Harry's has opened a New Outlet at Clarke Quay on 1st May 2015 and more awesome with the launch of new revamp Food Menu !.

Proudly to announce that now Harry's not only a place for drinking but also offering 50 over International selection of Food, prepared by their culinary teams.

Blog Review : http://cennds.blogspot.com/2015/05/food-review-new-revamp-menu-harrys-bar.html

Food Menu is divided into different section from finger foods to desserts.

Let's Start with Beer And Small Plates

Harry's Premium Lager ( HPL )

Since Harry's is known as a well established bar, we shouldn't left out with their Signature Beer of Draught. Cheers with HPL ! ($13) It is not as gassy as other beers and lesser bitter

 
Fish Cracklings

Crunchy Crunchy !! Crackling of eel fish at the price of $13 per serving, tossed with their own spices mix and served with aioli, savory garlic mayonnaise.
The best part is no fishy or unfavorable smell founded.

 
Crab and Potato Cakes

It is not a cakes of dessert but it is a blue swimmer crab and potato cakes with a light crunch, served with a delightful home blended tomato dip. Texture is soft enough and could be your choice of an easy and convenient fingers food at $19 for 6 pcs

 
Harry's Signature Wings

Harry's Small Plates Signature of crispy wings, dressed in a secret spice and served with a sauce that tasted like a sambal belacan but it was not exactly a sambal belacan.
In fact it is Harry' unique homemade chili jam which tends o be more spicy.
All time favorites at the price of $13 for 6 pcs, $19 for 10 pcs

 
Platters for Sharing

Japaleno Steak Sliders

A little sharing with friends and families ($13).
A Grilled steak that cut into a small slice of beef for a juicy slider burger with a charred bell peppers and jalaperio cheese sauce which you give you the heat of the burger instead of spicy

 
Big Plates and Signature Cocktail

Like the structured Menu and the way they serve the Menu Tasting.
At different type of food section, different drink is served to suit for the every taste.

Dirty Harry

Enjoy a refreshing glass of Signature Cocktails of vodka built with brown sugar and lychee liqueur for a flavored fruits and desire touch of lime wedges ($16). 
One of my favorite drinks at the night.

 
Chicken Masala

If you visit an Indian food, masala would be always founded in their menu.
It is a combination of spice blended in Indian Term.
Nonetheless, it is not a curry but a spiced gravy for the grilled smokey chicken that cook together with their own marinated sauce. ($23)
The toasted Charcoal bread is great to soak at the flavourful and unique pot of Chicken Masala.

 
Crabmeat Spaghettini

Tossed Spaghettini with fresh handpicked crab meat in tomato sauce, pine nuts and fresh chili cuts. Tough it is warned with a chili sign, but the spiciness is really not much. The spaghettini was not savory enough and too watery. ( $23 )

 
Come to End of Dessert

Toffee Apple Crisp Tart

Perfect treats for sweet craving with glass of Fruity Moscato ($13.50). A lovely crush pastry topped with thin sliced apple, spread with a mouth watering salted caramel and vanilla ice cream for extra satisfaction ($14)

 
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Harry's Signature Wings,Crab and potato cakes

Categories : Cantonese/Hong Kong | Teochew | Dim Sum | Seafood

Searching through google to look for Dim Sum places and we found there was a Dim Sum buffet at Swatou Seafood Restaurant . The Dim Sum is only available during High Tea Time. 
The place is located behind the HDB and we almost lost out track.

Review on my blog : http://cennds.blogspot.com

There are variety of dishes to eat and to pick but most of the food contains of PRAWN. It is advantage for prawn/shrimp lover but it will be a negative side for those have an allergic on prawn. Although i don't have allergic on it but since most of the food have prawn, we ate till quite afraid of their dishes especially if we saw a prawn.

However, the food quality is not bad and flavoursome

Prawn Dumpling

Prawn is fresh and wrapped with a soft skin dumpling

 

Bai Khu

Although it is a bit oily but it was delighted and well cooked with a great cooking sauce for pork.

 
Mushroom + Prawn Siew Mai

Great to have the mushroom on its home-made siew mai which i think that it is quite special because of the Siew Mai we eat at Dim Sum places, there is no mushroom added in the Siew Mai

 

Fried Bean Curd Skin Roll with Shrimp

Small pieces of shrimp wrapped in a crispy bean curd. Thanks that it was not oily and well supported texture

 

Egg Tart


Lovely the crispy tart and well soft textured.

 
Crispy Durian & Shrimp Roll

Waow ..It was my first time having dimsum contains of durian. Are you durian lover ? If yes, you should try it. Seldom there is a DimSum place, offer DimSum contains of Durian

 
Xiao Long Bao

What a awesome dish that couldn't be missed out during Dim Sum. Apparently, it was appetizing and well served

 
Mango Pudding and Tofu Pudding

A well spended dessert of DimSum because i have been a long time i never touch on tofu pudding.  The tofu was just nice and very soft while mango pudding is a bit plain
