I've been having extremely tiring dreams that leave me feeling very drained when I wake up =( Am hoping that I'll STOP dreaming and get sufficient sleep tonight so that I can break this restless cycle!
I am not sure if you can get free tap water at this restaurant because we were asked if we wanted still/ sparkling water and we didn't bother to ask if there's just normal iced tap water. As a result, we were given this huge bottle of Acqua Panna ($9) which we couldn't finish but I guess it's alright.
mediterranean salad ($19) was pretty decent. I think they were extremely generous with the olive oil and personally I think less oil would suit me better but I guess the oil base held the dish together well.
pesto linguine pasta ($25) was cheesier and creamier than I had expected. I had thought that I'd get the normal, plain pesto pasta with some greens but this was more than a treat! There were many small bobs of steamed potato covered with pesto sauce, lots of french beans and a fair amount of pine nuts! Frankly if I weren't so hungry, I wouldn't be able to finish this! This kept me full all the way till dinner, which is quite amazing because I get hungry quite quickly.
spaghetti carbonara ($25) which he said was pretty alright. I guess this is one of the strongest tasting carbonara I've tried to date because it is quite cheesy! Well maybe cheese fans would disagree with me because I don't particularly like my pastas to be too cheesy.
cappuccino ($5.50) for me and espresso ($5.50) for him. What we were impressed with was the sugar stick as well as the small shot of sparkling water to cleanse the palate! =D Definitely a nice touch! The presentation for the espresso is similar to the cappuccino's except that the cup of espresso is much smaller.
On the whole, we had a hearty and filling meal at La Forketta and we would gladly go back again! Perhaps next time I'll order their pizzas to try since I like their pizza base so much.
Alright have a great Sunday and an even better week ahead! (:
