。伊利近街的穩世美味 @Mostaccioli Brothers。
At Mid-Autumn festival, organised a small lunch with a group of female colleagues to celebrate the festival. Since we didn’t want to have tradition Chinese food, I reserved a table at this hidden restaurant on Elgin Street. Through a small corridor to the basement, the restaurant only had limited of seat but was filled with all people working closeby.
There were 7 main courses for you to choose from and each lunch set came with soup/salad. We pre-ordered the signature roasted chicken and some of us selected the other signature Mostaccioli pasta as main. The server quickly brought us some fresh and crispy bread after taking our orders. The bread was so fresh that it tasted so good with the tomato sauce and simply with olive oil.
The main course that we all looked forward to, the roasted chicken! The golden crispy skin was so beautiful. You can see how juicy it is when you cut it. On the side, the potatoes absorbed the juice and oil of the chicken. The portion was quite big that you won’t be able to have the dessert.
Besides the chicken, we also ordered the Mostaccioli pasta in 2 ways, one pan-fried and one baked. The pan-fried version smelled delicious with the fresh tomato sauce and sausage. The baked one was covered by cheese. It somehow was far drier than the pan-fried one and the cheese was a bit heavy.
Last but not least, the grilled salmon risotto is a main course that I want to recommend beside the signature dishes. The salmon was cooked to perfect with crispy skin and soft meat. The fish oil enhanced the favour of the salmon. The sauce was just right and made the risotto have enough moisture.
