La Bottega Enoteca, the Italian dining establishment in Joo Chiat Roadway, lately commemorated its second wedding anniversary and also safeguarded the 19th area on the respected 50 Leading Pizza Asia Pacific 2023 ranking by 50 Leading Pizza, making it the only restaurant in Singapore to make this acknowledgment.
As a history to La Bottega Enoteca, it was started by Antonio Miscellaneo that utilized to run the exclusive eating “Casa Nostra” in his residence in Tembeling Roadway. I had the lot of money to have actually attempted the exclusive eating experience back in 2019– and also I liked it. While Antonio does not directly prepare all the recipes at La Bottega Enoteca, he manages very closely and also can be frequently located in the dining establishment monitoring on the procedures. The dishes of the recipes additionally originate from him.
With the dining establishment noting its second year of procedures, it has actually turned out a number of brand-new things. Amongst the brand-new enhancements to the food selection, the Calamaretti Alla Griglia (S$ 25) is significant for its perfectly tender barbequed child calamari along with the addicting pea, mint, and also lemon enthusiasm.
La Bottega Enoteca uses 2 kinds of pizzas in its food selection. The Newpolitan ® is their half-cracked and also crunchy pizza which has actually been fermented for 72 hrs. The Doublecrunch ® on the various other hand, is a lot more on the crunchier side, having actually been fermented for 2 days. We attempted the Gran Biscotto e Cipolla (S$ 38 for fifty percent) which is from their Newpolitan ® classification of pizzas. This was rather an abundant pizza with charitable parts of prepared Grandmother Biscotto pork remaining on a bed of smooth cheese. La Bottega Enotica did not let down and also this was undoubtedly, among the far better pizzas I have actually had of late.
Among things which different great Italian dining establishments from common ones is the means they prepare their pasta. I enjoy to see that the appearance of the noodles right here are significantly al dente, maintaining a calculated undercooked high quality for that bouncy and also crunchy mouthfeel. The Fettucine Pesto e Mare (S$ 36) is just one of their more recent pasta developments. Below, house-made fettucine is sweetened with combined fish and shellfish and also fragranced with basil pesto and also Sicilian tomatoes. It interested see that the fish and shellfish, conserve for the mussels, were diced carefully in such a way that was not different to diced pork.
The Pluma Alla Griglia (S$ 58) is just one of Antonio’s staples. He offered a somewhat easier variation of it throughout my exclusive eating experience at Casa Nostra 4 years earlier (I have Instagram’s archives to give thanks to for this memory), Below, barbequed Spanish Pluma of Iberico pork positioned mores than a bed of crispy broccolini. We were informed that the pork itself was not experienced, counting on the scent of Sicilian capers and also red capsicum for taste.
Treat fans will certainly be pleased with the brand-new treats on the food selection, consisting of the Sfogliatella Riccia e Gelato al Parmigiano Reggiano (S$ 16), an abundant parmesan cheese gelato in a fragile Neapolitan “Sfogliatella Riccia” covering. I valued the half-cracked covering and also the comparison in between that and also the soft and also somewhat full-flavored taste account of the gelato.
The Seadas (S$ 14) is a cozy treat, a Sardinian special including a bread packed with cow’s cheese and also sprinkled with honey. It created an instead full-flavored pleasant end.
My eating experience at Casa Nostra all those years earlier was so remarkable that I remember it to today. I rejoice there’s currently a location where I can look for those dishes whenever I have food cravings for Italian food. 2 years on and also it’s great to see brand-new recipes being crafted at La Bottega Enoteca together with the pillars. If you are ever before in search of terrific pizza or pasta, you will not fail right here.
