Eating Out @ Home

Both me and sis heard so much of the place called "Gastronomia" at Great World City that we both made a special trip there on Friday to buy our dinner for Saturday!

There was so much to choose from that we almost went berserk :p

Our appetizers were lobster soup and caesar salad with fresh bacon bits!! Sis insisted that we used fresh bacon bits, so we fried the bacon on the spot and tossed it together with some shredded chicken into the caesar salad!

Its very interesting that the soup came in packets and all you had to do was to just pour it out and make it warm and its ready to drink!

We could also pick and choose pasta to suit the various pasta sauces and since the pasta were in servings per person we could have a variety!

our main courses from left to right: Spinach tagliolini and aglio olio, fungi alfredo with maccheroni and bolognese with egg tagliolini

And what could be better than after meal desserts? We couldn't resist the tiramisu as well as the nutella chocolate cake!

Our verdict? (total panal of 3 judges) we were a little disappointed with the aglio olio as the sauce was a little too oily for our liking. The bolognese was slightly salty but we all loved the alfredo!
The lobster soup is a must try and the tiramisu and nutella chocolate cake is definitely to die for.
We enjoyed the entire experience and Gastronomia is indeed a great place to buy food to prepare for the night when you are feeling lazy :)

food tasted like it was freshly cooked and did not have the "kept in fridge before" taste... best of all, your hubby lost his voice after the dessert... goes to show the food was so good, he did'nt mind the consequences! heeheee
