District10 @ UESquare – From mama, with love

Upon nightfall, [email protected], a mere five-minute walk from Fort Canning MRT, transforms into a cozy and romantic bar. Its homemade cuisine from a beautiful Italian town, Bergamo, northeast of Milan is waiting to cure your hunger pangs.

Presenting Pezzera’s Family Favourites “From Mama, with love”…Specially curated by Chef Luca Pezzera and his mama, Bruna.

Chef Luca Pezzera demonstrated his handmade dough with zest, which laid the foundation of a fresh, sincere and wholesome dish.

Ravioli Alla Fornarina Con Tartufo Nero

Ravioli Alla Fornarina Con Tartufo Nero – District10 @ UESquare

Ravioli Alla Fornarina Con Tartufo Nero ($28)
handcrafted ravioli with ricotta, black Angus beef
and egg yolk.

Don’t be fooled by its appearance, because all the goodness is right within the massive ravioli. We pried open the mystery, the well seasoned minced black Angus beef drenched in runny egg york became the center of attention. The dish was enhanced to perfect with ricotta and truffle, a taste so unique I wouldn’t forget.

Villaggio di Bergamo Pizza

Villaggio di Bergamo Pizza ($26) Wagyu
Meatballs, Mozzarella, Basil and extra virgin olive
oil.

Tender wagyu meatballs seated on the crispy-crust pizza looking pretty like cherries on Blackforest cake! A great appetizer or snacks to go with your cocktails!

($18) in spicy tomato sauce

Mama Bruna sure knows how to spice things up to the usual Bolognese pasta. Think about it, the thick and flavourful sauce with generous amount of minced chicken bursting out of the Penne on your first munch, leaving a hint of spicy aftertaste in your mouth. If you hate watery tomato pasta like I do, this will be your true love.

il Piatto della Nonna Fatta

il Piatto della Nonna Fatta ($28) Homemade Angel
Hair pasta in light parmesan cheese sauce with
black truffle.

The Angel Hair Pasta is so smooth and fine yet luscious. The cheese sauce topped with black truffle shavings is highly recommended to those who cant resist rich and flavourful pasta.

Mare d Monti

Mare d Monti – District10 @ UESquare 

Mare d Monti ($28) – Mixed Seafood Linguine with basil oregano in tomato sauce

The fresh seafood hiding brazenly among the tangy linguine is summoning you. 

Tiramisu

Tiramisu – District10 @ UESquare

Ending on a sweet note with a generous cup of tiramisu that has the right blend of coffee, chocolate, and liqueur. 

This is a great place to chill after a hectic workday with some booze and real quality Italian food.

When comes to feasting on different local Chinese cuisines, nowhere else could be more apt than Deja Brew, a cozy café strategically located at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre. The punny name of the café gave me a hint that I was about to travel to the past through my taste buds. But I was wrong. The menu, well thought out by the owner and his team, is a fusion of traditions and modernity.

Forget about the overpublicized Hainanese Chicken Rice, make way for Hakka Salt Baked Chicken Rice! The tender chicken thigh and the slightly salted rice were well presented in a brick bowl. Although the rice was slightly drier than the usual, the juiciness of the chicken thigh made up for the dish. A healthy and satisfying dish.
