Started off with Rossini cocktail, prosecco with homemade strawberry puree. Ladies with definitely love this pinky pinky bubbly!

Amuse Bouche
Ostrica
Oyster, sherry vinegar jelly, wasabi chips, avruga caviar
(Sanfeletto conegliano valdobbiadene prosecco superior docg)
Very fresh oyster that was plump and juicy. One slurp down and you will taste the essence of the sea, sweet and lightly dosed with the saltiness of the wasabi chips and caviar. This was pairing great with the prosecco.

Appetiser
Charred citrus glazed octopus, risone, capsicum, sundried tomato aioli, chilli, pistachio pesto
(Vigneti zabu grillo terre siciliane igt)
The charred citrus glazed octopus was smoky and bursting with mega flavours. And yep, with some light jaw activity, when amylase is running all over the oral cavity, the flavours churn in ever more! And those greenish bits are not risotto; they are actually risone, a type of grain-liked pasta that is commonly found in Sicily. The texture itself was silky smooth, adsorbed the nutty pistachio pesto!

Entrée
Capellini con aracosta
Angel hair pasta, lobster, seaweed, carrot
(Cecchi orvieto classico toscana doc)
Cold pasta that was done in an al dente way, coated with carrot sauce and topped with lobster and fused with a Japanese scene with a touch of seaweed.

Main Course
Zuppa di pesce gattopardo
Signature gattopardo seafood stew
(Vigneti zabu grillo terre siciliane igt)
Hearty seafood soup that is loaded with shrimp, calamari, mussels and fish, need the help of bread to polish clean the soup! Too good.

Or
Manzo Australiano
Australian Wagyu, Morel Mushrooms, horseradish sauce
(Mazzei zisola sicilia doc)
This wagyu was amazing and I just couldn’t stop wow-ing over it. The wagyu was smooth and tender, with that amazing marbling that melted just right on the palate; succulent and richly flavour. Just oh-so-amazing I was madly in love.

Zisola Sicilia 2013 to go with the beef

Dessert
Cassata
Sicilian ricotta cheese cake
Very light version of the cheese cake, touched with dried fruits, berries, crumble and nuts. A stir of rich chocolate ice cream gave an extra richness to the whole combination.
