Ever since the successful opening for the Passione Ristorante Italiano, the restaurant is one of my favorite place to dine. It brings you with their authentic Italian experiences to diners and this Christmas, Italian Chef Stefano Criber invites the patrons to come and discover themselves a feast reminiscent of the hearty Christmas dinners he grew up with.
The meals showcase the combination of flavours, colours elegance and brings you with the romantic feast of the night or even a joyful meal with your friends and loved one. And this time they come up with the Wine Pairing Four Course Feast (RM 180) where this is definitely a ultimate gastronomic experience for a four course Italian meal paired with the curated premium Santori Wine. Diners will get to savour a full plethora of sumptuous Italian holiday flavours, starting from delectable starters to hearty soup and pasta, before feasting on famous roasted Iberico pork and a blissful dessert.
Enjoy the awesomely delicious appetizers where the sliced marinated salmon in dill, peppered with sea salt and sugar and served with avocado and almonds. It is addictively good and well paired with the wines as well.
Asides from that, we also enjoy the Mini Crunchy Parmiggaino basket with Puy Lentils and Cotechino. The taste comes simply unique and every mouthful is just perfect!
Soup : Brodo Di Natale
We love how the soup is done. The traditional Abruzzo Christmas soup is prepared with chicken broth and handmade ricotta, served with spinach ravioli, diced vegetables omelette and pork meatballs. The soup is packed with flavours and it is deliciously done.
Pasta : Fagottino di Crespella
For the love of pasta, the pasta comes simply good and delicious. The dish is beautifully presented to us where the seafood crepes comes savoury together with the chunks of prawns and lobster bisque in it..
The Iberico Wonderland is amazingly prepared and cooked. We loved how the Roasted Iberico black suckling pig rolls is done. It is beautifully served and rolled with porcini mushrooms, served with baby carrots, spinach and potato. The meat comes moist and juicy. It is perfectly good and one of my favorite of the day as well.
We ended with the beautiful insta-friendly desserts. The deliciously done desserts comes to our favourite where the luscious red sponge cake layered with white chocolate cream and strawberry compote. Amazingly delicious and something worth to have here.
