Pasta Night @ Mister Bianco @ Monday, August 07, 2017
Thursday 13th July
Dinner at Mister Bianco in Kew, around the bend from the Hawthorn house.
Just next to MCD. Damn I want some fries, but resisted.
White cloth tables, modern takes on chandeliers that throws a soft warm atmospheric glow over the cozy space (upstairs that is). We were seated upstairs, the perfect intimate function room for up to 16 they say.
With a beautiful gold foil damask wallpaper, it reminds me of a bathroom we covered in faux gold leaf for an event. Seated by the window it wasn't cold but just right, with a lamp behind me the lighting was just perfect.
Braised beef cheeks, creamed spaztle, pickled radicchio, beetroot chips $38
Fernando had the beef cheeks, which he said were good. That's all he said...
Califlower fritters, romesco, pear and mustard relish $19
We started, well, I had two entrees while he had a main.
I had the cauliflower fritters, it was all about the sauce and things on the side.
Sicilian style salmon gravlax*, kipfler potato, caper + buttermilk $22
*gravlax = raw salmon, cured in salt, sugar, and dill
Followed by a salmon sashimi, fresh and spiced well though a bit salty for me.
sweet ricotta + cinnamon cannoli with pistachios + dark chocolate $6
(bigger than before menu update)
A practically savory cannoli. Ordinary.
Sicilian style donuts ‘sfinci’ with salted caramel sauce + chocolate sorbet $16
He had the orange marmalade donuts, served 3 at least!
The serving was huge in comparison to everything else.
Pluca bosio barolo poached corella pears, pistachoi gelato + pistachio biscotti $17
The poached pear was quite good with a light pistachio ice cream though I preferred the one at the Bay.
Pistachio Ice Cream $5
It was good but nothing amazing really.
Service was very friendly with our water glasses constantly refilled.
