Osteria Mozza at Marina Bay Sands was one place bB has wanted to eat at for a while, after interesting reports from various friends. So when Eric suggested dinner there, she was happy to oblige!
Complimentary amuse bouche from the chef. I have no idea what it was, but it was quite divine. It was creamy, cheesy, savoury and crunchy…
We got a little greedy ordering starters. I heard so much about the grilled octopus that I had to try it. The texture was beautiful. It’s true they may be a little heavy handed on the sea salt but it didn’t ruin the dish, in my opinion.
From the legendary mozzarella bar, we had to order two dishes. One was not gonna be enough!
We had the Burrata with beets, horseradish and mizuna, which rocked our socks off completely. The flavours and textures came together perfectly.
And the Mozzarella Tasting included bufala mozzarella, burrata and burricotta.
The smoked mozzarella was a little too smoky… We didn’t like it so much but the other two were lovely. It was served with bread chunks which bB did not touch because she wanted more tummy space. :P
For the main, bB had the Grilled Wagyu Beef Tagliata with rucola and Parmigiano Reggiano. The wagyu melted in my mouth. Save for the end pieces which were a tad chewy, the rest were perfectly done. Eric proclaimed it was the best beef he has ever had.
His main was the Guinea Hen with liver pancetta sauce. This was the perfect choice for him, being a big fan of liver! The liver sauce and the hen were awesome together…
For the sides, we chose fried potatoes with rosemary and roasted cauliflower with red onion and mint yoghurt.
The potatoes were done perfectly. Thin layer of crisp exterior, soft and fluffy inside.
The cauliflower, bB had to admit, was excellent too. Very different from the usual flavours and definitely worked very well.
As we were sipping our wine, the nice waiter kindly reminded us that there was a dessert menu… :D
And so, we had the Blackberry Jam Crostata, with blackberry compote and vanilla gelato. Despite being stuffed to the brim, we could almost… just almost finish this! It was that good.
The service at Osteria Mozza was excellent and very sincere. The tables were really close together though. It was hard not to eavesdrop on people. LOL! The bathrooms were crazily cold, almost like freezer rooms. The oldskool hot and cold taps were a nice touch though.
Yes, it’s Mr Bb. We are still good friends.
Thank you for such a wicked awesome dinner! :)
