Gattopardo @ Tras Street

Special thanks to Wesley and Andy for the invite!

Formerly located at Fort Canning Hotel, Gattopardo has reopened its doors at Tras Street, bringing more competition to the already food-studded street. Fans of Gattopardo will be relieved to know that signatures from the old menu have been retained. 


There were corners like these with paintings handpicked by Chef. 


This is a tasting session and portions featured match accordingly.



Crusty mini baguette, so easy to eat and then want more. The problem with miniatures is, they always delude me into thinking I can always have another and another and I get so full. 


The refills were a different type of bread - sour dough.  


Both came with lovely condiments of olive oil and salsa.



Trota di Mare ($32)
Tasmanian Petuna Ocean Trout Carpaccio, Leeks and Persimmon

A beautifully plated raw fish dish that had complementary sweet touches.


Polipo ($34)
Charred Octopus, Sicilian Olives, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Celery Root

I fell in love with the immensely tender octopus dish. 


Rigatoni “Mancini” con Aragosta e Coriandolo ($55)
Rigatoni “Mancini” with Spicy Live Blue Lobster and Coriander

Say hello to the dish worth returning for. Well executed and impeccably done, the al dente pasta and blue lobster were paired so beautifully. I’ve never encountered a naturally spicy lobster and this was it – luxuriously included in the dish. 

The others that I did not manage to try due to time constraints,


Tiramisu in a jar


Seafood soup

 

The restaurant was packed for lunch, reasonably priced at $37++ and looks set to takeover Tanjong Pagar with a Mediterranean wave.
