Food Review: Fuhgeddaboudit at Botticino,Trident BKC
caoporm-超频在线视频We went to Botticino at Trident, BKC yesterday for lunch. They have this Fuhgeddaboudit festival going in which is all about light ‘on the go’ Italian power lunch from 16th to 19th May.
About the fest: Fuhgeddaboudit! Italian gangsters, or ‘wiseguys’, love to eat. With one eye on the pasta and another on the clock, they’re always on the lookout for a great meal. So you might just bump into one at Botticino, where we’re serving some unforgettable Italian power lunches. Whether you’re a Godfather, or one of the Goodfellas, or just another wiseguy, you won’t be able to “fuhgeddaboutdit”!
Manager at Botticino, Alisha Rampal and the Chief Chef, Sushil Multani explained us a bit about the fuhgeddaboudit festival and what it involves. How it is supposed to be light and quick and inspired from the Italian mafias.
These are the items included in the Italian fest.
Coming to the food, we were served fresh bread with a dip, at the start. It was quite fresh and some of them were really nice.
I went with the Chandon Brut Rose and hubby went with his favourite Sula Satori.
For the appetisers, we were served Compressed watermelon and goat cheese salad with citrus fruits, roasted pine nuts and lemon vinaigrette. Chef told us how the watermelon is compressed with kaffir lime leaves and the blend with citrus fruits, feta and roasted pine nuts was delish.
And the Tomato and Bocconcinicaoporm-超频在线视频 with fresh mozzarella and cherry tomatoes.
For main course, we were served Eggplant Parmigiana and Spinach Ricotta Crepescaoporm-超频在线视频 with roasted tomato sauce. The crepes were nice. I did like the blend of flavours in the Parmigiana but I am not a fan of eggplant, so couldn’t have much.
Since the food was taking time, we were served orange sorbet in between which was quite refreshing.
And lastly, the Penne Arabiatta pasta with garlic, chilli flakes and tomatoes. Ok, so I like my pasta with an extra dash of olive oil and lots of parmesan. While this was supposed to be light and had no cheese, I missed my Parmesan. I wish I could have added the Parmesan additionally on top.
For the desserts, we had Panacotta with seasonal fruits and raspberry coulis topped with cinnamon honey and hubby went with Mango Cassata.
The panacotta was light and absolutely yummy with the fruits and a tinge of cinnamon honey in between every bite.
caoporm-超频在线视频I was not very pleased with the waiting time though. For every dish, we had to wait for 20-25 minutes,and I thought according to the theme of the fest, it was supposed to be quick and ‘on the go’. Though I appreciate the chef cooked stuff fresh for us, but we were getting late, I hope that is not the case always.
Nonetheless, the food was nice and I had a great time. If you love Italian food, make sure you go for the fuhgeddaboudit festival at Trident, BKC. Tom is the last day!
