It is never easy to pick a restaurant when you are spoiled for choice.
I ask the obvious question, what do you like to have?
But this time its Kyle’s turn to answer. Because he is the Birthday boy! He doesn’t mind the food but all he cares about is the view. Pragnya recollects a suggestion from her friend and googles images of La Camera. All three of us are pretty pleased with the menu and location. We go ahead and make a reservation.
1. SPAGHETTI ALLA PUTTANESCA (3.5/5)
Garlic, chilli, semi-dried tomatoes, olives and basil. Pretty bland!
2. VERDURE (4/5)
Sautéed greens in garlic and olive oil. Retained colour and crunchiness. Just enough garlic and salt. It gave me a healthy feel 😀
3. SPACCATELLE CON GUANCIALE DI MANZO (4/5)
Pasta stirred in tender beef cheek, root veggies and mushroom ragu. Couldn’t spot mushroom and veggies but there was a balance of taste and flavours.
4. ENTRECOTE 300 gr with Salad (3.5/5)
Eye fillet because scotch fillet got sold out!
5. RISOTTO AI FRUTTI DI MARE (4/5)
Risotto of scallop, calamari, fresh mussels, squid, fresh herbs, onion and garlic cooked in a saffron seafood broth and topped with grilled Australian prawns.
Strong ocean taste!
6. POLLETTO RUSPANTE (4/5)
Free range half chicken from Hazeldene’s, Bendigo VIC cooked sou vide with light herbs and spices to enhance the natural flavours, simply served in its own juice and braised lentils.
Beautiful tender meat!
7. BRASATO DI AGNELLO (4.5/5)
Slow cooked lamb with root vegetables, tomato and white wine with a hint of sage, topped with toasted breadcrumb then served with braised kale and olive oil.
Perfectly cooked tender and juicy lamb. Well balanced gravy. The crunch of kale and bread crumbs elevates this dish to the next level. A must try!
8. Pavlova (4/5)
Pretty plating. Light crisp crust and a soft inside meringue placed on a cream base. Decorated with fruits and edible flowers. A complete treat to the eye!
9. Tarte Au Citron (4/5)
Vanilla tart shell piped with zesty lemon curd, smooth meringue & a praline choux pastry.
10. Heaven For Two – Chocolate Ecstasy (3/5)
Warm triple chocolate brownie, served with vanilla and noughat ice-cream, fresh cream, summer berries, butterscotch snap and Dulce de Leche.
Really huge portion to make you sugar high. The tube like crisp and sweet thingy you can spot here left a grainy after taste. The brownies had a brick like texture, too hard to bite!
It was a beautiful night with so much fun and laughter. Wishing many more of such happiness and joy in all the many years to come, Happy Birthday Kyle!
