Tired of eating in at home, hobbled out to have a comforting meal at PerBacco. The place is usually popular on Fridays packed with folks chilling out for the weekend. Thankfully on the day of our visit, the restaurant was not too crowded. I was conscious that herbal medicinal wrap on my ankle would affect other diners…
Started our meal with warm bread with great olive oil with vinaigrette dip and appetizer of Stewed mussels in white wine sauce. We were not only happy with the plump and juicy mussels, the white wine sauce had us slurping up every drop of it.
If you think the portion looks small at first glance, don’t fret. What I had was actually 1/4 portion of the full plate.
The pasta at PerBacco are available in 2 sizes: Full and Half portion. We ordered the half portion and the staff was kind enough to offer splitting the half portion up for each of us.
Although the two pasta looked to be coated in similar white cream sauce, they tasted real different. The Linguine with langoustine and zucchini in light gorgozola sauce had strong Parmesan cheese taste and more savoury than the Pennette with lobster meat and egg yolk cream “carbonara” style which tasted more milky.
I was particularly impressed by the texture of the pasta, it certainly didn’t taste like those “off-the-shelf” kind. Even if it was, it was of really good quality. The staff told us that some of the pasta they serve are homemade, but I was not sure if the ones I had was one of them.
