Zesty Risotto at Simply Italian

Checkered floors and a romantic dim lighting ambience along with a cozy set up and featuring classic white interiors makes for the perfect indulgent Italian meal. Tuck into authentic italian dishes that exude warmth and passion as Chef Mauro Alea takes pride in his dishes that evolve from his grandmother’s recipes.

An italian meal is incomplete without the soft creaminess of burrata but bear in mind this is no simple burrata dish. The millefoglie di burrata e carasau combines warm carasau bread that hails from Sardinia, burrata cream with a dressing of delicious tomato confit.

The risotto agli agrumi e gamberi rossi, a plate of risotto bursting with the freshness and citrus feel of orange and lemon with italian red prawns to complete this dish. I love how the refreshing taste of the lemon and the sweetness of the orange combine with the creaminess of the risotto and the prawns makes for a promising dish.

The costine di angus australiano brasate is a beauty to behold as 36 hours braised australian angus short ribs draped with the velvetiness of jus, celeriac and delicious truffle polenta chips, the key ingredient being truffle which makes this dish all the more delicious.The meat is so tender, it falls right off the bone and succulent in all aspects.

The crunch and munch of Cannoli Di Ricotta had me smile as i broke delicately the deep fried and home made cinnamon and cocoa cannoli tubes to have sweet ricotta cheese ooze out dressed with the nutty glamour of pistachio and the sweetness of orange compote.I love how this dish balances all the flavors out with a bit of nuttiness and a spiced and sweet flavor.

If you know me well you know my first choice of drink would be a cappuccino, so to my utter surprise, i found a semifreddo al cappuccino on the dessert menu, it had my interests piqued as hot milk foam dressed the cup with the crispy sweetness of italian meringues and speckled with hazel nut crumble. I love how this dessert has a slice of hot and cold and had a mousse like texture.
