Beef carpaccio

Previously from La Braceria, Chef La Mura Dominico has brought along his old menu to his new venture. Grilled meats still take up a sizable portion of the menu, along side offerings of pastas, pizzas, antipasti and dolce, and his delicious signatures offerings have stayed on the menu.

I realised that I am a creature of habit and comfort, and have unconsciously ordered almost the same dishes as what we had at La Braceria. The appetizers of baked scarmoza with a delicious mushroom sauce, tripe, beef carpaccio and sautéed clams in white wine were well put together and tasted close to what we had when we first tasted the chef’s cooking. Electing to go with the grill dishes of lamb chops and grilled homemade sausages, since after all they did build the kitchen to feature the char-grilling moves of the chef, they did not disappoint. With no thick or rich sauce to accompany the grilled meats, they were simple, straightforward and satisfying.

Baked scarmoza with delicious mushroom sauce

Only sampling one dish of baked orecchiette with eggplant and homemade sausages from the pasta section, it echoed the same feeling of homely hearty food that the grilled dishes evoked.

Although not as charming or cosy as La Braceria in terms of ambience, but bring good company or wine and chances are if you liked the food there, you will like it here.

It's like musical chairs for the local chefs isn't it? Still, it's good to hear about a great new place.
