Rite Bites, Boutique Bangkung Food Crawl Pt. 2

Next on the agenda was Opus Bistro for an Italian rendezvous after the Spanish indulgence earlier. I like the ambiance of Opus and prepared myself for some Italian romance ;o).

We were served a mini swirl of carbonara pasta with beef bacon. I liked the small serving, a very welcomed sight at that moment. The pasta tasted good but I found the beef bacon a tad chewy.

Next is what Opus says is their customer all time favourite - Roasted Cod Fish with Lemon Capers sauce. I just took a small bite and found the taste slightly similar to the pasta I had earlier as both were cream sauce. The rest of the fish loving floggers seemed to enjoy this dish.

Of course, we had white wine to go with our food. We were given an intro to our drinks by the Sommelier; I believe the lovely white wine that went so well with our food was Podium. As for the smaller three glasses with the yellow colour liquor, that's the traditional aperitif, Lemoncella. I took a sip and my eyes nearly popped out as it was too strong for me. LOL!

We then adjourned to the Wine Cellar a few doors down for a short tour. This is truly a place for wine lovers where there (FYI, the restaurants around this area stock wines from here) is even a new upper floor for wine lovers to congregate and chill out. They have more than 500 varieties of wines to choose from!

Our last stop for the evening was at The Attic, a non smoking bar/gallery/lounge which exudes style, class and sophistication.

We were served some cocktails and I managed to try this particular one which tasted like Tiramisu (in liquid form!) I can probably drink a few of these babies!

Nigel also unveiled three new creations of Just Heavenly (well, at least they were new to me!). From Top to Bottom (clockwise): Mango Upside Down with caramelized mango chunks, Chilled Lemon Cheesecake and Raspberry Madeira. My favourite is the Mango Upside Down cake. Really yummy!
