Perbacco, the Italian restaurant located at 20 Craig Road is preparing to battle out all the eatery place at Craig Road. ‘PerBacco‘ refers to Bacchus, the Roman god of wine.
The restaurant has two sections, the bar and the dining room. The long spacious bar overlooks the charming street and the tables next to the opened windows offer an al fresco feel. The brick-lined walls and dark wood furnishings provide the perfect ambience to chill.
Behind the bar is a sprawling yet cozy dining room appointed with dark wood chairs, stone floors and artfully stacked wine crates that imbue a warm, quirky feel. Perfect place to bring your date for an romantic dinner. The menu is all in Italian with English sub in it.
Appetizer – Crocchette al Granchio – Crab Meat Crocchette with Spicy Tuna Sauce
Well fried Crocchette, it was crispy one the outside and extreme soft on the inside. The spicy tuna sauce was the perfect match for the crab meat crocchette. It brings the crocchette taste to the next level.
I am highly recommending this pasta to everyone. The egg yolk cream sauce was the BOMB!! It was the soul of this dish. It was really creamy but not overwhelming. The lobster that goes along with the al-dente pasta was Boston lobster, no wonder it tasted so good.
This was my first time trying Potato Gnocchi. The Potato Gnocchi texture is similar to our local food “Muah Chee”. Well braised Oxtail that goes really well to the dish but i find that the truffle essence was overwhelmed.
Dentice al Forno con Sugo di Pomodorini e Burrata – Oven Baked Red Snapper Fillet, Cherry Tomato Sauce and Fresh Burrata
Rarely see the burrata cheese goes perfectly well with the cheery tomato sauce and the red snapper fillet. The red snapper fillet was perfectly oven baked, which lead to the sweet and slippery meat, and its savoury crispy skin.
The most flavorful dish among all! – The braised veal cheek was well marinated in red wine. The meat was very tender and robust. The cannellini beans were added in to give the dish a slightly nutty flavor.
It’s always good to end off your meal with a good dessert. The cheese lover will definitely love it. The cheesecake was light and sweet. The biscuit base to give the cheesecake a little bit of crunchiness. The sweet peach compote gives a juicy bite in every spoonful of cheesecake.
A signature of Chef Marco’s – This dessert gave me the feel that i am having Ferrero Rocher with plain pudding.
