Jack's Terrazza Ristorante
Thanks to this tasting or I would have not known about the Vegetarian menu.
I was surprised that they now offer a Vegetairan menu.
Anyway great for me because on some days I like to veg out!
Non-alcoholic with grenadine, orange, lemon and lime.
The sweetness was just right.
To start off with, there was a non vegetarian platter to satisfy our hunger!
The calamari rings were the best because the coating was tasty with a hint of spicyness.
The pizza was really nice, it was topped with colourfully diced peppers which gave it a nice taste as well as presentation.
The peppers and tangy tomato puree were a great pairing on the thin and crispy pizza base.
Asparagus and mushroom risotto:
The risotto was a bit too creamy for my liking.
This was my favourite, it was full of strong flavours such as sundried tomatoes, olives, basil oil with the crunch of pinenuts.
A really healthy pasta but a bit too oily.
The aubergines were one of my favourites dishes in the vegetarian menu because you can actually taste the real texture and taste of aubergines.
The way aubergines are done in Chinese cuisine are a waste, they end up mushy or just soaked up in oil!
The tomato sauce was nice and strong which complemented the aubergine well but after a few slices I started scraping away the sauce because it felt a bit too heavy.
For vegetarians, I would definitely recommend the linguine and the baked aubergines.
