Sala Bistro ♥ ♥

When I crave portabella, 3 restaurants come to mind.

1. Purple Feet for the rich and decadent foie gras-infused version,

2. Cru for the sweet and tangy version, and

3. Sala Bistro for the tart and creamy goat cheese version with sprinkling of truffle oil.

Sometimes I order one serving as appetizer, sometimes 3 servings as main course

I never liked my seafood stewed because more often than not, they turn out overcooked. But the waiter convinces me to try this by announcing it is the restaurant specialty.
Well, what can I say. I am right again. I drink some of the soup, but leave the overcooked seafood almost untouched.

The fish is cooked to a beautiful and delicious crisp yet remains soft and moist inside.
The sweet red peppers are a lovely complement.

Oh no! What happened to the restaurant specialty? Tough, rubbery and full of gristle,
this is steak gone wrong. I feel evil about saying this, but you can get the same quality steak at House of Minis for half the price.

I tell you, with a bad cold and nose stuffed with all kinds of things I’d rather not tell you about, I can still smell and taste the truffle. Earthy, creamy goodness.
Give my nose a week to heal, and I’ll be back for this.


And the portabella. Oh, the portabella!
