Satiating Italian Food Cravings at Amalfi..!!
Italian food is typically very common one when come to think of, because all we relate Italian food is to Pizzas and Pastas, but true authentic Italian Food is way beyond all this and also amazingly delicious.
Thankfully, I have an option to taste the goodness of Italian Food, just near to my home at Amalfi. Amalfi is an authentic Italian restaurant situated in the M Block Market of Greater Kailash-2.
To begin with I opted for Insalata Mista al Formaggio, Insalata typically means an Italian Salad. Mix Lettuce, Green Apples, Asparagus tossed in Agro Dolce Dressing with Crumbled Feta and Walnuts is what comprised of this amazingly colourful looking and delicious salad.
For Antipasti, which means first course of the Italian meal, we opted for Souffle Alla Gorgonzola, which was served with Porcini Mushroom Sauce. I can easily say that it was one of the best cheese souffle I have ever eaten and I can really go back for it anytime. It was so so delectable, that knowing the calories, I could not resist myself from indulging in it. We also had the Pollo Al Pesto, pan seared chicken tossed in pesto sauce and served with lettuce leaves. This too was good, but the taste of Souffle just lingered on.
For Primi Piatti, which includes Pizzas or Pastas for the first course, we opted for Pizza Basilico E Bocconcini, a thin crust pizza topped with homemade tomato sauce, bocconcini, jalapeños, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese and also the Affumicato Pizza Di Pollo, a thin crust pizza with mushrooms, smoked chicken and cheese. Both the pizzas were delectable, though I preferred the non-veg one.
Then we opted for Scottato in Padella Basa Con Marinara, Risotto Con Misto Funghi, Spiedini Di Pollo Alla Pancetta and Tiger Prawns in Lemon Parsley Sauce. The pan seared basa in marinara sauce served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables was amazing, subtle but very nice taste. The Risotto cooked in white wine and mushrooms was another splendid dish and I loved it. I did not enjoy the prawns much but the bacon wrapped chicken skewers with honey prune chilli sauce was the sure shot winner dish for that evening. It was flavoursome and delicious. And my plate looked so so tempting with all these amazing dishes, that for sometime, you just wanna look at the food and not even eat it. Wines to go with the palate were served alongside and it made the foodie experience even more enriching.
To bring our culinary journey to a sweet end, we indulged in Tiramisu, the traditional Italian dessert and also Fondente Al Cioccolato. Both of the desserts were outstanding, I loved every bite of them truly could keep on and on, especially the Tiramisu. Overall, I had a great experience, the only disappointment being slow service, which I am sure they can improvise upon.
