Capricci @ Tg Pagar, Singapore

Approx 3 weeks ago, I'd went to Singapore to celebrate my birthday with my dearest Jin Keat and my beloved Eddy. Jin Keat had recommend us to celebrate in Capricci where quoted as the Best Italian Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore in Tg Pagar.

There's a distance to walk from the MRT station to Capricci but once you enter the restaurant you will be greet by the duo Massimo Aquaro and Chef Luca Carrino and they gives me a shocked. They actually waited for their guest to arrive(needs reservation) and both of them are very friendly and gives a good hospitality throughout the night.

Even it's a very small shoplot but it do gives a very typical Italian home ambient.
For starter we had ordered two dishes which is the Fresh Scallop Carpaccio with Citrus Dressing, Hot Leeks and Truffle Oil at SGD20, no doubt it is really fresh ;)
Another starter which is the 36 months Cured Parma Ham with Rock Melon Sorbet SGD20, loves the saltiness of ham with the refreshing melon sorbet, where both blends in well and melt into your mouth!
As for main course where both Jin Keat and Eddy had go for pasta as they said a good Itallian dish is always to go for their pasta and Jin Keat had the Linguine with Vongole in White Wine Sauce at SGD22
For Eddy, he had the normal Aglio Olio at SGD20, no doubt both pasta is good.
And for me I had the Oven Baked Suckling Pig Sardinia Style with Mirto Liqueur on a Hat of Portobello Mushroom at SGD35 (birthday girl ma, must order the special dish hahaha) love the crispy suckling pig skin and the juicy meat with the huge portobello mushroom!
As for dessert we had share a Tiramisu at SGD15, to me it's a bit too dry maybe it's not using a lot of cream but it's more like a cake.
Also finish up with a glass of Avanti Cappucino but it's too bitter to me even added with sugar, bet the coffee bean is different from Illy eheheheheee....

Thanks to Jin Keat for buying me and Eddy dinner at Capricci mwaaaah xoxo

Nathalie Gourmet Studio @ Solaris Dutamas

“Nathalie’s Gourmet Studio” is an original concept: the studio is divided in a professional kitchen for cooking classes and the restaurant with an outdoor terrace, for breakfasts, luncheons, and tea time. While at the entrance, you won't miss the Macaron's display, Nathalie's sweet and colorful delicacies. However, you can also book the restaurant in the evening for private gatherings, inaugurations or product launches.
There is this one afternoon, after my meeting with Lim, we decided to dine at Nathalie as I told him they serves the best macarons as I heard for many times from friends around me and not to missed out that they do serve lunch and they also change their menu every month.
Once you done ordering, they will serve you their house specialty bun and it was awesome and I just can't stop and even feels liek asking for more buns! I love bread a lot so to me i give 10/10 for the scrumptious taste of it! 

As for my main course and also the menu of the month, I'd ordered a Porcini Cannelonis,Parmesan Cheese Sauce at RM45. The name sounds weird right and you have no idea what it is? same reaction of mine when I look at the menu and order it. It's actually a pasta wrapped with mushroom and top with parmesan cheese sauce. It's just gimme a idea of how the Master Chef come out with a dish with their creativity.
Lee had order a Steamed White Fish with Fennel Ratatouille and Virgin Dressing at RM55
Last but not least Nathalie's Macarons and I'd ordered a Caramel flavour and only one piece because it's not cheap! One macarons for RM5! and the first bite is soft and it sticks to your teeth and melts into your mouth and guess wart?! was told this is the best selling flavour ;)

As a summary, my overall dining experience is that, the price of food is a little bit too high perhaps it's a fine dine?! or maybe it's a gourmet studio where all students are trained to be a Michelin Star Chef. 

For the overall taste, I found it weird and not my liking maybe it's another way of gastronomy in the market.

For the ambient, I like it a lot as it's like a lifestyle dining hall.
