Xmas deco around the island seems to light up earlier this year. Maybe it was an effort to boost xmas shoppings in this economic crisis period.
Modesto’s had been added into our to-dine list mths ago and finally got to try it today.
crema di funghi soup (S$11.50)
the soup was rather thick … mushroom taste was strong too.
very generous serving of breads and they weren’t just plain bread but with some spice in them.
sourish dipping sauce to go along with this was served too.
insalata alla cesare salad (S$13.50)
“served with pork bacon bits, croutons and topped with parmesan cheese flakes” explained it all …
a rather common dish but the price wasn’t too common.
calamari fritti (S$17.50)
every calamari was well fried and very chewy … far better than Aerin’s.
pizza capricciosa (S$18.50)
tomato, cheese, cooked pork ham, mushrooms and artichokes.
the base tasted like naan which was very cripsy as it wasn’t too thick and floury.
We had wanted to order regular size but the friendly waiter strongly advised us to take the mini size one instead. according to the waiter, the regular size was usually meant for those bigger appetite westerners. And luckily we switched, cos the regular size that we saw from another table could feed a table of 6-7 local guys @_@
linguine alla modesto (single portion S$28)
this was a “wah! wah!” dish!
“fresh prawns, squid, clams, mussels, whole crab, anchovies, capers, black kalamata olives,
dried chilli, garlic, white wine and fresh tomato sauce, cooked in traditional italian cartoccio style”.
it was a real filling dish even though shared, but highly recommended : )
We were among the few when we arrived, but by the time we stepped out of the restuarant, it was almost fully packed.
Bought these cute little memopads from isetan. Each rilakkuma memopad (S$1.95) came with 2 different designs while each individual sheet from chip ‘n’ dale’s (S$3.95) was of different designs. Nice huh! … btw they were all mine ^____* … back to pri sch days me =P
