An Old Friend Rediscovered – Oso Ristorante

In Eating out, Outside Dubai, singapore, Uncategorized on April 11, 2012 at 22:35

Oso is an old friend who has been forgotten and rediscovered again and guess what 3 repeat visits in 2 weeks shows you just how much I have missed this place.

The chief and the restaurant manager who owns this Italian joint hail from good old Senso on club street and I’m glad to see that even the service staff have remained with the duo over the years.

My 1st experience with the type of magic that they weave was more than ten years ago when a high school classmate introduced me to them.

The bread basket was little disappointing tonight as the tomato bread was too salty but the yummy breadsticks made up for that.

The antipasto was balm to our hungry tummies, even dad who usually doesn’t enjoy cheese finished his goat cheese and took my share too via I was busy taking photos of the food. Special mention goes to the salmon tartar which went well with all of us 🙂

We were then presented with soup … A mystery soup that was served 2 ways. Hot in the bowl and cold in the half-shell. Surprise surprise its truffle potato soup. We all loved the cold soup more than the hot soup. See the chef even personified all our eggs … Don’t this cheeky egg remind you of me?

Next up was our pasta course. It was a simple seafood linguine in tomato sauce. The freshness of the shrimp, cod and scallops was clear and the tomato sauce brought up the umami of the seafood. The handmade linguine was cooked till al dente and soaked up the lovely tomato sauce. Another serving pls!

Time for the mains, we had duck and fish for our mains and it seems that the fish was better than the ducks today but I must say the duck was above average but the fish today was sublime!

Time for dessert … I present chocolate soup! I mean how cool is that? Think thick decadent chocolate that is paired with saffron ice-cream and topped with a lovely butterfly …

And the butterfly takes flights…

Oso is one of the best Italian restaurants in Singapore and they do work hard to deserve the title. I’m glad to see that they have improved over the years and I guess they will be seeing me lots in the years to come!
