For a limited period, One Farrer Hotel & Spa is collaborating with Da Paolo Group to bring an Italian Dining experience to its residents and patrons. The 6 course dining menu priced at $75++ will be available on every Friday from now until 29 December 2017.
For the inaugural collaboration between the hotel and Da Paolo Group, diners can look forward to a quintessential menu consisting of homemade pastas, meats and seafood.
Our dinner started with 4 different types of Antipasto. The chef's choice for the day comes with Fried Mushoom Ball, Tomato Bruschetta, Octopus Bruschetta and Calamari. A delightful selections to whet up the appetite.
Grilled Lobster Salad 4/5
Parma Ham & Fresh Melon 4/5
For the Starters, diners have the choice of Grilled Lobster Salad and Parma Ham & Fresh Melon. The grilled lobster salad comes with avocado, black olive soil and pommery mustard dressing. A light yet refreshing salad to kick start the dinner. The parma ham & fresh melon, a classic combination that works regardless of time.
Spaghetti al Granchio 4.2/5
Ravioli di Vitello con Pomodoro e Grana Padano 4.5/5
For Pasta, diners have the choices of Spaghetti, Ravioli and Tagliatelle. We tried both the spaghetti and ravioli. The Spaghetti al Granchio, tossed in a tomato and cream sauce works wonderfully with the al dente spaghetti, complemented by the fresh crabmeat. While the spaghetti was really good, I love the Ravioli di Vitello con Pomodoro e Grana Padano even more. The homemade ravioli filled with braised veal, has the right balance of pasta to stuffing ratio, paired excellently by the red wine jus. If you do not like spaghetti or ravioli, there is the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese, homemade egg pasta in beef ragout, simmered in red wine and tomatoes.
Pan Seared Barramundi 4/5
Baked Chicken Roulade 4.2/5
Moving to the Mains, diners have the choice of Pan Seared Barramundi or Baked Chicken Roulade. The Pan Seared Barramudi comes with pumpkin carpaccio, tuscan kale and arrabbiata salsa. My favourite part is the crispy skin of the pan seared barramundi. I also enjoyed the hint of spiciness from the arrabiata salsa which complemented the moist barramundi excellently. The Baked Chicken Roulade is packed with flavours and textures. The tender chicken meat is filled with sauteed mushroom and black truffle. It is laid on a bed of parmigiano and truffle risotto with forest berry red wine jus, confit cherry tomato and white asparagus slices.
Da Paolo's Signature Tiramisu 4.5/5
Cannoli Siciliani 4/5
For Dessert, one can go for the Da Paolo's Signature Tiramisu or Cannoli Siciliani. My dining friends were sharing with me how how good is Da Paolo's tiramisu and after savouring it, I could not agree more with them. The whole execution was nicely balanced and light. it is definitely one of the best I have eaten. Sweeten the experience with the Cannoli Siciliani. Crack the fried pastry dough and have it together with the ricotta cream and chocolate chips for a sweet finishing.
Cheese Platter with Dried Fruits Toast and Condiments 4/5
Last but not least, end the 6 course dinner menu with the Cheese Platter with Dried Fruits Toast and Condiments. This pop up restaurant venue is located on the Level 6 lifestyle Podium, with seating available in our air-conditioned poolside restaurant or sheltered alfresco dining at our Sunset Bar.
