A tavola non s’invecchia at PREGO!

MANY Italian ristoranti can be found in sunny Singapore but veberable Prego in Raffles City still draws lovers of Italian food and wines. Today on Christmas Day 2011, after a huge mega Xmas Eve dinner I am here to have a lighter dinner in the lively and refreshing ambience of Prego after its recent revamp. The hot Rosemarino bread like a bagel with ricotta and basil pesto in a cute jam jar was so yummy with my Arugula & Almond Flakes Salad as well as the velvety, chunky piping hot mushroom soup. The charming Manager. Stephane, who is French, is always helpful. Britta, the Wine Director, is never at a loss when it comes to recommending a nice wine or two to accompany your meal. Tonight, I decied on a lovely German Riesling, Doenhoff from Nahe 2010, fresh and lively with dulcet honey notes and floral aromas. Excellent with my Rotisserie Chicken!

Before that, I was served Wiggly Pappardelle pasta with tomato, fresh basil leaves, red and green capsicum plus lots of micro-planed Parmigiano cheese!

Tender, juicy, flavourful chicken with herbs is another delight…
