had lunch with god-sis today at senso on 8.9.2016. ^^

i forgot to bring my phone so photos courtesy of god-sis. 🙂

senso is like a tradition. it’s a place i used to go like 20yrs ago for business lunches when i was working in town.

nothing much have changed since it seems.

anyway in more recent times after senso joined amex palate (now lovedining), i had dinner here once with wife >3yrs ago on 13.7.2013. ^^

god-sis snapped a photo of the nice plant on the table.

bread basket

the bread basket was quite good, the focaccia bread, ciabatta & baguette all good. 🙂

seafood alio olio

seafood linguine in spicy white wine sauce

we ordered a pasta each & a main course to share.

mei mei doesn’t like raw food so we skipped beef carpaccio etc.

mei mei’s lobster taglierini (squid ink) was excellent, quite good pieces lobster & great tomato & basil sauce (top photo).

however as a dish it pales in comparison with labrezza’s lobster tagliolini.

my seafood linguine in spicy white wine sauce was completely mediocre. zero spiciness, zero kick, prawns the crystal prawn texture like chinese food. fish not a great item to add to this kind of pasta, squid & scallops will do better.

my own seafood alio olio is far tastier, and that was before i managed to replicate my helper’s version which is even better.

cod

Gently-roasted Cod Fillet, Chanterelle Mushrooms and Chianti Reduction

cod was ok competent, the puree, sauce & especially mushroom was great.

cod? maybe the fish itself not so great. this the slightly fishy cod, not the very tasty cod i had in some restaurants.

my own Nobu miso cod a lot better la…

lunch for 2 pax was S$60nett after 50% amex lovedining discounts.

of the 3, only dish i would take if i come here again is the lobster taglierini. but i think the appetizers & some other main course like veal rack should be ok.

not great c/w with what i had at labrezza recently but quite ok really at a nice place like this with good service.

if S$120, forget it!
