Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, Binjai Park

Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, Binjai Park

So, another one of those location (3 Binjai Park, tel : +65 6468 4886) that's been on radar and didn't happen until now. I take it that anyone who knows where Binjai Park is and doesn't live in that vicinity understands how one needs to make their way specially there for anything because it's a location that's not in the way for more than 99% of the people here. I digress......

Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, ricostruzione di un fungo

We started with a couple of anitpasti. This one was amusingly named ricostruzione di un fungo which translates into 'reconstruction of a fungus'. I'm seeing it as how the stems of the mushrooms have been replaced by scallops. This was delicious. Expensive but very tasty with little but salt and the natural flavours of the mushrooms and scallops.

Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, cold cuts

Capri Trattoria has cold cuts that are allegedly made in house. Maybe except for the mortadella.  This is mention worthy because not many Italian restaurants here cure their meats.

Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, citrus risotto prawn tartare

There was a citrus risotto with quenelles of prawn tartare which we couldn't pass on. The citrus flavour was refreshing while the rice was light that we inhaled it off the plate easily. Not to mention that those prawn tartare were really good. The meat was barely cooked and filled with flavours and sweetness of the crustacean. Pretty impressive. For now, a runner up to my favourite fruit risotto.   

Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, fettuccine

These guys do a pretty competent fettuccine alla nocerina. The egg noodles had great texture, sauce was creamy and rich and the flavours on the whole came through nicely. It just needed a bit more salt. It seemed that the restaurant had just recently recalibrate the salt for some of the dishes from feedback.
