Monday night and it’s packed. Got to be good right?
Operates the same as Chin Chin in that it takes no bookings. This is probably because it is from the masterminds of Chin Chin itself!
We started with a beautiful bottle of chianti while we waited half an hour for a table at the bustling bar.
Stage night started perfectly with a beautiful cured meat platter with the softest buffalo mozzarella cheese and warm baked focaccia.
We let Fred choose the pizza since he’s Italian and should, in theory, know better than us! He chose the Melanzane pizza which is topped with fior de latte, San marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, thinly sliced eggplant and a little chilli. Bellissimo!
I chose the beef carpaccio salad to piece the meal together. It was beautiful.
To finish we ordered the salted caramel pizza. It took forever to come out, I actually had to remind the server and I do think they had forgot. I wasn’t impressed when we finally got it. I don’t think it rang true to salted caramel. It was just like a gluey caramel topping.
Other than the dessert the meal itself was lovely. I’ll be back as I can’t wait to try the duck ragu – it smells freaking amazing. I had food envy over my neighbour.
