Follia @ Clover Way
Follia sits in the midst of a private housing estate and it's a pretty popular spot for the residents living in the area and diners who sought authentic Italian cuisine. Albeit a little inaccessible, Follia has a couple of pretty outstanding dishes that might just be worth the trip. The Osso Buco alla Milanese was my favourite dish of the night. The saffron rice paired up pretty damn well with the wonderfully executed veal that has been braised for four hours.
We were first treated to a pasta-making demonstration by Chef Francis before dinner
We had some white wine and homemade bread to start the meal. The bread was thin, crisp and delightfully fragrant
Patate Pancetta e Taieggio
This was a crowd pleaser. Potato with onion, bacon, ham and taleggio cheese already sounds like a winning combination. What more when it's fried and baked to a nice shade of golden brown? You just can't go wrong with this
Squid Ink Tagliatelle
Handmade daily, this squid ink pasta might just be right up your alley. I thought the tagliatelle was slightly overcooked as it was a little softer that I would have liked. Apart from that, the dish is a pretty intense one that's packed full of flavours with a generous portion of seafood
Pollo alla Diavola
Known as the "chicken from hell", this piece of poultry marinated with chilli pepper is nothing short of a tongue-numbing experience. I've always thought that most Caucasians don't do well with spices and chilli so I was all like "how spicy can this be?" Little did I know that one bite was all it took to wipe me out. You've been warned. Order this at your own risk!
The Kirsch rum-infused panna cotta was firm and sturdy, and creamier and milkier than most others that I've tried but I enjoyed the light sweetness and the texture very much.
Possibly the most drugged tiramisu that I've ever encountered. This was heavily laced with multiple types of liquor, resulting in a potential buzz should you have a weaker alcohol tolerance than most. Not my kinda dessert, as it was pretty bitter.
