had 2pax birthday lunch with my RI bro CCG @ basilico regent hotel on 10.3.2021.^^
3 course lunch plus gourmet coffee (I had piccolo latte haha!) at S$65pax and 50% off using amex love dining.
a great lunch and wonderful time together…
there was quite basic bread rolls…tasty dough with balsamic, EVO and olive “hummus” served in a dish..we asked for the usual butter..lol! 🙂
choice limited for appetiser- antipasti, burrata and soup.
we both took antipasti platter…basilico famous for excellent antipasti & semi buffet..now covid so no buffet but basically we were served the antipasti buffet spread..
& platter already had burrata..so only choice really..and this one here really good quality..meats, smoked salmon, grilled vegetables, scallop…
main courses inc pizza, a mussels basil pesto pasta, and the risotto I had before was excellent.
but the best really is the tagliatelle di manzo which just means sliced beef steak…a sirloin…I had medium rare…perfecto! I can eat this every time la…:-)
CCG had salmon. he already had steak this week family dinner, so quota up…salmon was competent, good standard but I guess nothing special. he tried a slice of my beef and liked that better…good excuse to come back…
dessert also limited…just think semi buffet…so the choices were all as would have been on the buffet..
cheese was excellent very good standard as expected and a generous serving….
dessert platter was competent, what can be expected from a good buffet…
and coffee was included and I had a piccolo latte – gourmet coffee right? lol! 🙂
best thing – we got 2 parking redemption…and each car was S$10.90!!!
