We decided to pamper ourselves and headed to Forlino.The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of One Fullerton with a beautiful view of the Marina bay front and overseas the view of Esplanade as well. Totally in love with the comtemporary italian dining interior design here. We were like walking from reality to Alice in Wonderland?Sound magicals but we were passing a maze of blue walls upon arriving the entrance of the restaurant. The staff greeted us at the reception/ waiting lounge and direct us to the dinning place.
After browsing the menu, we had our order placed. We were then served with the complimentary starter before dinner.
Forlino’s signature freshly baked Foccacia Bread. The beauty of the bread is the top layer of the bread. It is crispy and slightly caramelized and soft fluffy at the bottom of the bread. It is just nice to eat plain and even with the raspadura cheese. Thumbs up!Raspadura cheese. Awesome I would say. I totally in love with it. I had them with the bread.
It’s the herb crusted kurobuta pork loin with arrabbiata spicy tomato sauce. The tomato sauce was not spicy at all. It taste sweet and goes well with the pork loin. The kurobuta pork loin was nicely done.Crispy on the outer layer and soft and moist meat texture once you chew it into your mouth. Not to mention that the art food presentation makes our appertize grows.
Pan Fried Halibut fillet with mussel,taggjana olive & spelt risotto,saffron jerusalem artichoke cream. It is a good choice. The chef is indeed displayed a splendid cooking skill as the skin of the fish was nicely pan fried but able to retain the juicy,smooth and soft texture of the inner of the fish. My friend describe that she feels like floating in the sea when she had it in her mouth. Sound exaggerating but truly enough that’s the feeling at that moment. Risotto was nicely done as well. The portion was quite generous and it is a very filling main course.
This is very sinful and filling. The butter-infused caramel will make anyone saliva dropping non-stop. The service staff will ‘pop’ the dessert for you. But i choose to do it myself because i want to enjoy the flowing moment. it’s a perfect combination with the salty ice-cream!
