Senso Ristorante & Bar Moët & Chandon Courtyard Brunch

Senso Moet & Chandon The Courtyard Brunch  (15)

You may be familiar with Senso’s Italian Prosecco Brunch on Sundays which I blogged about some months back. In addition to this, Senso has now introduced a Moët & Chandon Brunch, to be held every quarterly. These are the special themes (later months tentative) : 

  • October 2018 – Imperial Brut (by bottle)
  • December 2018 – Ice Imperial —> 2nd December, it’s this weekend!
  • March 2019 – Imperial Brut (Magnum)
  • June 2019 – Ice Imperial 
  • September 2019 – Moet Rose
  • December 2019 – Moet Grand Vintage

The Moët & Chandon Brunch will feature a Pop-up Champagne Bar in the Courtyard, with free flow of Champagne, red & white wines and beers. If it’s too much work to visit the Champagne bar, do not fret because the waiters come by often to refill your glasses anyway. Senso’s Italian buffet of salads, antipasti, hot mains, pastas, desserts and other Italian classics will be available. And if you are in a party mood, you will like the House Music by Senso’s resident DJ Donat’. Check out this video taken during October’s Courtyard Brunch, it looks like the party atmosphere is going strong! You don’t have to sit in the courtyard though. We sat in air-conditioned comfort indoors. Smile

The next Moët & Chandon Brunch will be held on 2nd December from 11.30am to 3pm and there are but a few seats left. $108++ per person for free-flow alcohol or $68++ for no alcohol. Scroll down for some photos and a video taken at the 1st ever Moët & Chandon Brunch back in October.

Izy Dining and Bar–The most eye-catching Japanese roll you will find!

At first glance, Izy Dining and Bar might strike you more as a drinking joint than a restaurant that serves proper Japanese food. But do not be thwarted by the long bar counter that takes up practically the entire front section of the restaurant, there’s good food to be had if you venture forth. Food that will not only please the taste-buds but also the eyes. And if you venture further in literally, you will reach the table seating area, which in my opinion is more comfortable for consuming lunch and dinner.

On the menu are the usual suspects for any Japanese restaurant such as sashimi, sushi, rolls and cooked dishes. However it’s the little touches here and there, and the creative use of ingredients that really set Izy Dining apart from the usual Japanese restaurants you find in malls. Everything just looks so delicious!

The piece de la resistance for Izy Dining and Bar has go to be this.

Izy Dining & Bar - Japanese Nokke Roll (Uni, Ikura, Crab, Negitoro, Veg) $45 (2)Japanese Nokke Roll (Uni, Ikura, Crab, Negitoro, Veg) $45

If this doesn’t catch your eye, I don’t know what will. Basically all the Japanese dream ingredients presented on one dish. It will disappear into the stomach all too quickly, so my only advice is to savour it slowly! It’s a must order if you love all these ingredients!

Izy Dining & Bar - Mango Salsa Roll (Tempura shrimp, raw salmon & avocado topped with mango salsa sauce) $18

Spizza Club Street

Belated birthday treat from one of my good friends. At his request, mainly because he had a 1 for 1 voucher from one of the banks, we went to Spizza. It seems that the diners next to us also had a 1 for 1 voucher issued by another bank. I’ve always liked pizzas from Spizza. Their pizzas are the thin and floppy type (“wood-fired thin crusted Napoli pizzas”), oozing with delicious goodness from the toppings. None of the crispy pizza base types for me thank you. It’s so dumb that the Spizza outlet at HarbourFront closed and Pizza Hut took over instead. Can you believe the irony? Anyway Spizza is still available at Club Street, Bukit Timah and Jalan Kayu. I like the Club Street branch since it’s been there the longest, it was the 1st outlet, and it’s located near the Ann Siang Hill/Club Street area which is very nice for a stroll after dinner.  Did you know that Spizza has an island-wide delivery? I just discovered that fact like 5 seconds ago. Might call for some when I’m feeling the craving!

All the pizzas cost $17 for medium size and $21 for large. For ladies, a medium would be more than enough. Between the 2 of us, we ordered 2 medium pizzas plus a calamari.

Spizza - Fried Calamari and Onions

Crispy Calamari with Pizzaiola Sauce $11 – This was pretty good. They came out hot, which is a must, and the batter was crispy and fresh. There were also bits of crispy onions as well, which lent extra sweetness to the calamari. Delicious!

Spizza - Pizza with runny egg and truffles

Quinta: Tomato, Mozzarella, Egg, Black Truffle Sauce $17This was so so so so SO delicious. If you are lost as to which pizza to choose, I would highly recommend the Quinta. The black truffle sauce really adds an unmistakable dimension to pizza. I’ve never seen so much truffle before too. And the egg. Ohhh…dip each pizza slice into the runny egg yolk. It is heavenly beyond compare!!!

My friend had never tried truffle before, at least not consciously. He was immediately hooked on this, despite the initial pungent smell.

Spizza - Buffalo Mozzerella and Basil

Margherita: Tomato, Buffalo Milk Mozzarella, Fresh Basil $17 – After the explosion of flavours from the 1st pizza, this one kind of brought us back down to earth. I am a huge fan of buffalo milk mozzarella. I love caprese, so I wanted to see if pizza with mozzarella slices would be nice too. I was kind of imagining that the cheese would still be thick chunks laid out on the pizza, but it was baked as well. So this pizza felt pretty plain, no thanks to us having eaten Quinta first. It’s not a bad pizza, but if you want more ingredients, or you want the taste of the buffalo milk mozzarella to be stronger, don’t order this pizza.

Standard Chartered is also offering 15% discount for card holders, 20% if you have the Standard Chartered Visa Infinite Dining Privilege. Students also get 15% discount! And if you dine at Spizza often, you can get their loyalty card too.

Cugini Trattoria Pizzeria

YJ who shares a similar love for exploring new things recommended that we should dine at Cugini after he had read some positive reviews on the place.  We did so several weeks ago and were not disappointed.

Cugini is a very homely looking Italian restaurant located in Club Street. Unlike some other restaurants there, it doesn’t look pretentious at all. This could be a reason why the food they serve is so good. Their energies are focussed on bring out the best in their dishes, rather than being channelled into other frivolous areas.

Cugini - (4)

Complementary bread – Seems like a must for Italian restaurants. The orange coloured sauce looked a bit dubious but turned out fine.

Cugini - Veal Ravioli

Veal ravioli with green cabbage and Barolo wine reduction $24.90 – Meat wrapped in pasta, how hard can that be to make? Surprisingly, even the best of restaurants I’ve been to can fail in this aspect. A lot of meat ravioli I’ve had tasted harsh, dry and cardboardy. I’m glad to say, I’ve finally found the place to have moist and tender veal ravioli. I snitched a piece from YJ’s plate and it was so good. There was a distinctly unique flavour to it, perhaps they added some special spice. The creamy sauce paired excellently with the ravioli and I kinda slightly regretted that I didn’t order this myself, given that I’d considered it.

Cugini - Squid Ink Fettucine Cugini - Squid Ink Fettucine (2)

Squid ink fettuccine with seafood, fresh pea and mullet roe $24 – I have to say, this is the best squid ink pasta I have eaten to date, hands down. The seafoody flavours was intense and the pasta was just bursting with life. I was practically eating non-stop, trying to slurp up all the delicious sauce. Even without those prawns there, if you gave me this dish with only pasta and the sauce, I would be supremely happy.

Cugini - Seating Area

We were both very very satisfied with the food. The food was great and it is without a doubt that I will return again. The prices seem reasonable but the portions are not huge. You could load up on the free bread, or order an appetiser/dessert. The one thing I didn’t like were the hard wooden blue chairs, not so good for my achy breaky back.

Shots Cafe

I have been eating so much lately, my shirt doesn’t even fit me anymore. Last week was the 1st time I wore that shirt and it was fine. Today, I felt as if I was being compressed within a tight capsule. If I continue on this trajectory, I may just pop a button.

But how can I help it when I’m been assaulted by good food? Yesterday I sinned again, at Shots Cafe no less. This Cafe I presume is against sinning since they had Joseph Prince’s book prominently displayed on their counter. Joseph Prince, if you didn’t know, is the famous pastor from New Creation Church. Yet people must sin here everyday when the cafe has so many decadent pastries and baked goods on display!

Shots Cafe - Chocolate Fudge Brownie (2)

This damn decadent and chocolatey chocolate fudge brownie here was the culprit, the catalyst! If you want chocolaty, this is 10 times better than Awfully Chocolate, you can be sure of that. It was as moist can be and the fudge was oozing all over the place. I ate 3 quarters of it and left 1 quarter for my friend, but only because I felt I had to be sociable. And, this only costs $5.50 instead of $7+ for the Awfully Chocolate cake.
