Glam Shelter

This was a lovely place for Italian food because the setting was gorgeous.
We sat at the far end where it was like an alfresco glass house.

Here was what we had.
Akasha - absolut citron, lemongrass liquor, elderflower syrup, orange juice, mango peach tea caviar

At first it looked like ordinary tea but it was actually an alcoholic peach tea.
There were pearls at the bottom which float when the beverage was poured into the cup.
Although I don't drink much alcohol but this was fun to drink.
Asparagus, Tartufo Nero Mesclun salad, asparagus, celery and cherry tomato, tossed in black truffle dressing

This was a tasty salad with a strong truffle dressing as well as truffle slices which you could see.
Poached boston lobster, fruit salad of mango, papaya melon, blueberries, strawberry and lobster sabayon

This was a refreshing salad with fresh lobster on top of delicious mango fruit salad.
Strozzapreti vongole e carciofi
Handmade strozzapreti, sustainable new zealand diamond clams and artichokes

Strozzapreti which is sliced pasta and twisted is my favourite because it is chewy and holds the sauce well.
Risotto “Acquerello” ai gamerbi e capesante “Acquerllo “rice, hokkaido scallop, rose prawn, spinach, lemon scent and pantelleria capers Baccala

The risotto was filling and creamy with generous pieces of seafood in it.
Salted spanish line caught “gadus morhua” white cod with asparagus, mussel and clam broth powder

This was my favourite because I love chunky flakey cod, the texture was firm and springy with a delicious salted taste because it was soaked in brine.
Stuffed veal chop with mushroom, spinach and parmesan, wrapped in pork net, truffle mashed potato

The veal was tender stuffed with creamy spinach in the middle.
Mojito semifreddo, peppermint jelly with jasmine tea sauce

The dessert was great, the mojito was refreshing balanced by the jasmine tea sauce and cooling peppermint jelly.
