Last week mrdirector80 & I went to Missoni hotel to try out their new menu since we heard that there was a celebrity chef visiting and created a new menu
For those of you who don’t know Cucina is an Italian restaurant with the original taste of Italy
Cucina Chef Claudio greeted us when we were seated at the table – such a nice person – i told him please get us sample size dishes so we can try the most we can … but before that let me talk about the restaurant it self.
The interior design of Cucina is very lovely and cozy, the staff is Italian so if you know how to speak Italian that would be great to show off in front of your friends.
Now let’s start with the food dude
mrdirector80 and i had the same drink its ginger with parmigiana but don’t hate me i didn’t get it’s name :/ i had two, yes its that good.
First on the table was the Calamari & Zucchine – of curse sample size as we ordered. I do recommend this as a starter. Let’s carry on.
Then we had “Insalata Tiepida di Gamberoni & Carpaccio di Cernia con Insalata di Finocchi e Melograno” yes the name is too long for a plat to small mrdirector80 liked it but personally i didn’t like it at all :p not recommended from my side.
As i was looking at my un-finished previous plat “Carpaccio di Manzo con Rucola e Parmigiano & Insalata di Pollo e Peperoni, Condimento al Balsamico” arrived at our table. It was good but not the kind i would come to Cucina to order it again. Don’t be disappointed it gets better.
We had a date with “Tonnarelli con Gamberi e Pomodorini” next, it was one of the best things that hit our table, simply its a must have.
The “Tagliatelle al Ragu di Manzo & Gnocchi Patate ai Quattro Formaggi” was after highly recommended. when i a had it and tasted it i didn’t know what was i eating but it was delishes.
By fare “Orata alle Olive Nere e Balsamico” was the best thing we had, if you like Italian sea food you must try this one
We are almost done bear with me as you see and drool on the above picture of “Filetto di Vitello con Purea di Patate e Salsa ai Funghi” yes Italian meat ball :p it was so nice that i eat it before taken the picture thanks to mrdirector80 told me “Hey take the picture first!
Finally the dessert “Tiramisu” i have one thing to say about it which i told the Chef, its not layered, i do it better sorry guys layered it better a layer of the cream then a layer of biscuits and the same thing again.
I do like Cucina i would go there again give it a try and let me know what you think dear foodies see ya
