My first visit to the D2 Place area was at Greater China Club. Now they have expanded to Phase 2 with a lot more eateries so we decided to check it out for a quick lunch on our day off. Some of these include our familiar ice cream shop Holly Brown, The Salted Pig and a very stylish Italian restaurant – Si Simply Italian.
This new restaurant has a very beautiful exterior, feels contemporary and is so packed during the lunch hour. Offering a lunch set menu which costs a great deal with an appetizer, a main course and homemade dessert to finish; a list of classic Italian food are also available during dinner time.
We start by having a some sourdough with the classic combination of balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil. Followed by our appetizers, the baked potato cake made with finely diced Italian luncheon meat, crispy cheese topping, very soft and delicate. The crabmeat salad has a great amount of fresh crab meat, tossed in mayonnaise, simple and delicious.
At first I’m a bit reluctant to order a pasta dish because I always prefer protein over carbs, but surprisingly, the penne with truffle sauce is perfectly excelled with a creamy tomato mushroom sauce and the penne pasta is excellently al dente.
There is no words to describe how much we love our medium-rare prime rib. Sourced from the US, it is simply juicy, tender and marvelous!
For desserts, a flourless chocolate brownie is so fudgy, pretty and sophisticatedly presented, whereas the tiramisu has its light and airy mascarpone cream topped on espresso-soaked ladyfingers, which is a tad hard though.
All in all, we really enjoy our lunch here; amazing food, friendly services, great price, and its genuine Italian flavor!
