Last weekend, I had lunch at Covelli, a new Italian place at the basement of Orchard Central. The reviews on hungrygowhere were great and I always have an appetite for Italian food.
A narcissistic photo of myself. My hair roots are showing though. Going to get my hair done this Wednesday.
While the eatery may look small from the outside, it stretches lengthwise towards the end of the building, with seats on both sides of the corridor.
We were bombarded with an array of choices, only to be told by the staff that some were not available as the demand was so good the day before and their supplier did not have enough fresh seafood to offer.
Bread was served warm but without vinegar or olive oil. Quite a downer for me.
Next, was the seared tuna salad. It’s different from the usual tuna flakes and the sauce is slightly spicy. Quite an interesting taste.
The mushroom soup was a delight. Rich and foamy.
The presentation of the tenderloin was pleasing to the eyes. However, the meat was well-done when my dad requested for medium rare and the cut was a bit small.
I love my prosciutto argula pizza! The crust was thin, tomato sauce was aromatic and it was oh-so-good.
This was followed by dessert. Coffee cheesecake for me. A light espresso cheesecake mousse with crumble at the bottom and topped with flakes of dark chocolate.
My family ordered the hi-tea set. It was cheap, at only $13.90. But the items were nothing to brag about.
The set also came with two pots of tea. The pots were small but the staff was generous with the refills of hot water.
This is quite a good place for gatherings or meals with your family.
