With crazy weekdays, we decided to splurge and pampler ourselves on a nicer dinner last Monday. Off we went to New York New York, located at Kovan Heartland Mall. Tucked away from the busy shopping crowd, we had some quiet dinner time whilst satisfying my crave for Western food. Been regularly dousing myself with too much hawker food. Bleah.

Mushroom Cappucino Soup to kickstart the meal! Nice flavour and aroma. Bits of mushrooms detected. Light and easy to drink, not too creamy. Great for those wanting to order a spread of foods.

I devoured the Roast Chicken with Spaghetti in Tomato Sauce. Great tummy filling meal! 😀

Hub had Fried Fish with Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti. He's a creamy pasta convert. LOL!

Since its opening @ 313 for more than half a year, I’ve been eyeing this Italian cafe for the longest time ever. Its cosy-looking setup is what attracts me, and to dine in the midst of the crazy shopping crowd should make quite an experience too! 😉 Finally had the chance to try it out and boy, I was lost for words. *Pls excuse the pix due to the lighting at the restaurant 🙂

Creamy Mushroom Soup: 3/5

 If you love Marche’s Wild Mushroom Soup (which i do!), then you’ll find Tratorria’s take a little lacking in punch and wholesome mushroom bits. As a starter, it’s good, without filling you up too quickly.

Grilled steak with mushroom & garlic: 4.5/5

OOOH… we adored this. Was kinda like our saving grace from the mains. Heart the mushroom with garlic too. Fragrant bits! The sauce that accompanied was sour, sweet and black. Does any1 know what’s it called? 

Creamy Mushroom Carbonara: 3/5

The Man ate this and exclaimed “It’s too zalty!” I had a mouthful of it and declared it WAY better than mine 😦

Crayfish Pasta: 1/5 (MAJORLY FAILED!!)

I have to say, this is like 1 of the worst I’ve ever eaten (excluding homecooked) and it was an impossible disappointment. At $18.90, that makes it the most exp one on the menu but the noodles were overcooked and looked miserably like Maggi noodles. It was TOOOO salty and the crayfish were miserably tiny. Swensen’s famous Crayfish Pasta has crayfish that look like it. This just looked like a giant tiger prawn. *sigh* 

Lesson learnt: Never judge a restaurant by its appearance and ambience. Sad 😦
