La Cantina: The Hidden Beauty

This reminds me of Las Vegas...
the same blue sky-ed ceilings at The Venetian.

There was nothing, really, to nit-pick about Cantina's Roman-inclined interiors. Sophisticatedly crafted details only spoke of elegance, and a breathtaking view too resplendent to ignore.

Ambience loved.

The bi-charaterized bread was baffling to define. Toasted crusty edges embodied a herb-melded center so evidental of foccacia, yet unswervingly strong in baguette traits.

Conclusion: Baguette-like Foccacia.

We've got an ingenius twosome here.

Falling for the day's special Portobello Mushrooms with summertime eggplant ($22.90) was easy. I'll never turn away from juicy funghi species, especially when its sufficiently beefed up with seasoning. Two's not quite enough, hah.

Gosh i could live in adulation of their Linguine Al Granchio ($26.90)- crabmeat linguine in creamy tomato sauce. Every strand was so lushly coated in that scrumptious pink sauce, no amount of it would trigger abdication. Delicious! a pity it wasn't mine...



The swooning came to an abject halt when my Pescatora ($26.90) arrived. Paltry pieces of seafood in an atrociously diluted tomato sauce (plus a couple more flaws picked out) utterly failed to score. A pasta discrepancy issue is proven.

I was highly warned about their desserts.
No risks taken.

Splendid hideout in Changi Village.

if only i had picked the Al Granchio too...

  1. Sitting al fresco would have been a much better experience. A pity the weather didn't permit.
