Sopra Cucina

Recently while researching for Italian restaurants in Singapore, one of the hot tables for the month was at pan pacific ( the one by orchard towers) called Sopra cucina which served Sicilian food. I mainly got excited cause the exterior of the building looks so beautiful ....

For the starter, we decided to have something off the bar menu instead which was the fried mozzarella with a tomato pepper salsa.. this was delicious! We wished it was a slight bit saltier but really it's hard to go wrong with fried mozzarella. 

now as I'm writing this, I'm realising we did have a lot more food than i want to admit! we asked the waitress for a recommendation and she recommended the: Culurgiones Ogliastrini, stuffed pasta pockets of potato, mint and pecorino tossed in butter and sage.

i would say this was my least favourite dish of the night - no it wasn't awful, it was indeed tasty, however i preferred other dishes over this. i would describe this as extremely soft mash with A LOT of mint and a strong hint of cheese.

next up was the gnocchis also known as the small shaped dumplings on their menu. we did not stick to the recommended pork and rosemary sauce and instead change it to a bolognese sauce. BOY - were we pleased! the boyfriend wished the "dumplings" were bigger however it was definitely a tasty dish! highly recommended.

We went nuts and decided to order something else -   tortellini soup - that was just amazing.

 We also had a bottle of wine recommended by the waiters. I was very pleased with the service, and the food was fantastic. Overall a great night in a gorgeous atmosphere - another place i would certainly go back to!
