We headed over to Uccello afterwards for dinner with hungry stomachs to try the newly introduced "First In Best Dressed" menu by head chef, David Lovett, which draws upon his favourite rustic Italian dishes. Who can say no to Italian food? :D
|Cured meats, soft cheese, sourdough|
|Raw red prawns, parsley, lemon, olive oil|
|Kingfish crudo, marjoram, pink pepper, lemon|
|Buffalo mozzarella, peach, San Daniele prosciutto|
|Char grilled sardines, lemon, chilli, parsley|
|'Risotto Milanese’ saffron and bone marrow risotto|
|Rigatoni, pork sausage, broccoli, ricotta|
|Pappardelle, wild rabbit, pancetta, rosemary, parmesan|
|‘Stinco di maiale’ roast pork shin, fennel, bay, potato|
"I hope you're hungry!" he says.
My eyes popped out at how large the serving was. It was the entire pork shin! At this stage I was beyond full. But power on for the food! What I absolutely adored was the fennel. It was so soft and was just holding its form together. Just the way I like my fennel cooked! I'm glad the pork was left on the bone - the flavour is always better that way!
Roast blue eye, fennel, orange, olive, strega
|Trippa alla Romana, beef tripe, guanciale, tomato, mint, oregano, pecorino|
|Spring lamb shoulder, caponata, pine nuts, mint|
I don't think we could have fitted in dessert no matter how hard we tried. Despite it being a Friday night and located next to the Pool Club, it was surprisingly not too loud. But that may have possibly been because it was raining that night :P For only $55, the meal was very good value especially with the large serving sizes. Uccello provided both quality and quantity tonight and left us rolling out the door in a food coma-esque state!
