Back For More Deliciousness!
For swine reasons, we just can’t stay away from Epicuro! I have even brought my whole family there for parties and breakies. I just love the comfort food there. Yugin and team always know how to serve great pastas, pork chops and desserts. That said, we also gathered up some foodies and had a lovely meet up there one evening. We were also pleased to see that Epicuro had some new dishes added as specials on certain occasions and this definitely warrants a post!
Though not a new dish, Spaghetti Carbonara is pretty much pure sinful comfort food in my books, especially when Epicuro serves their version with slow poached egg. Superbly rich and luscious in every slurp, the carbonara might be a sin to eat but hardcore foodies like me feels it’s definitely good for the -soul as once-in-a-while indulgence.
I have yet to visit Epicuro without ordering their Epicuro Pork Chops. It is still the best pork chops I have ever had and is always worthy of an order. The pork chops are gloriously tender due to the brining process and is well seared to pinkness through. Smothered in creamy rich mushroom sauce, the flavours are unctuously delish. I have recommended the dish to my family and friends and they too had succumbed to the addiction of Epicuro Pork Chops just like me…
Australian Grain Fed Rib Eye is a new special that evening and we all felt that this should be on the regular menu. The gorgeous piece of seared rib eye is delightfully tender and so juicy. I like the minimal seasoning on the steak, allowing the flavours of the meat to really stand out. The beef comes with a side salad and mashed potatoes.
Another foodie ordered the special Spinach Encrusted Sea Bass and it came with a good portion of sea bass crusted with a spinach topping. It looked utterly gorgeous in colors as the fish was paired with a vibrant spiced mango salad.
You simply have to try the latest addition of Waffles with Ice Cream at Epicuro. The waffles are simply-to-die-for. They are very well made with a near perfect crust and soft cakey inside. Toasts to golden brown, the waffles are nicely sweet and buttery. The ice cream was the perfect side kick for the waffles. A must-order!
Tiramisu is also another signature of Epicuro and some of us are simply not willing to share when it comes to this alcohol-laced Italian dessert. Maybe you also won’t … wink!
Our finale of the sweet ending was another dessert of Vanilla Crème Brulee with Mixed Berries. Sufficiently good and creamy, the crème brulee is rich and silky smooth beneath the crunchy sugar crust. The berries added a lovely sour note to the sweet cream.
If you have never been to Epicuro, you should, especially if you love pork chops or porky dishes, you’ll love this place!
