Media Tasting at SONS Restaurant
SONS Restaurant is nested at China Square Central. This is our first visit and we had some difficulties locating SONS restaurant. It is not located at China Square Central but at the shophouses nearby. Expect classic modern Italian food and also spot Italian Charcuterie cured in-house such as meats, salami and cheese in a curing room right besides the dining area. SONS Restaurant has introduced the new menu curated by Michelin Star chef, Beppe De Vito and some of the Signature dishes.
The Signature homemade salami platter comes with four types of salami (Smoked Kurobuta Pork Lonza, Capocollo, Guanciale and Pancetta) made from pork and flavoured with herbs giving a nice aromatic. Honestly, I’m not a fan of salami as my impression of salami is heavy on saltiness. However, this super thin salami changed my mind! They’re not overly salty, meeting my light tastebud requirements.
Homemade Salami Platter at S$22.
Slice open moist and fluffy squid ink breadcrumbs to reveal premium salted cod and mashed potato. Never thought of this combination goes pretty well. The soft mashed was relatively light but soft and creamy sea urchin sabayon filled in all the savoury flavours.
Baccalá Cakes with Sea Urchin Sabayon at S$18.
I’m impressed with this new dish! Triple meat sausage all made in house with pork, beef and lamb, seasoned with only herbs and pepper. This dish created a flavour profile that hits our taste buds in all the right ways and moist inside! It tasted as good as it is or dip into tangy mustard cream sauce for the extra kick.
3-Meat Sausage, Broccoletti & Mustard Sauce at S$29.
Hands up if you can’t resist to those lovely slices black truffles! If you can’t get enough of the sliced truffles, there are more truffle paste spread on house-made rustic bread alongside with melted smoked cheese, sauteed shimeji mushrooms and finished off with earthy micro herbs. The combination of smoked cheese and sauteed mushroom might be a little salty to some.
Mushroom & Truffle Bruschetta with Smoked Scamorza at S$15.
Lovely colours of zebra lines painted on ravioli is made from housemade beetroot. Each pieces of ravioli is generously filled with kale and spiced Nduja and tossed in creamy butter sauce. Nice chewing of the ravioli with a spicy underground taste.
Kale & Nduja Ravioli with Capers & Garlic Butter at S$22.
This housemade squid-ink tagliolini sits smack on the ocean (no views, though) with wild cuttlefish strips and housemade squid ink pasta tossed in briny seafood sauce.
Squid-ink Tagliolini, Wild Cuttlefish & Orange Salmoriglio at S$24.
Creamy cheesecake in contrast with a lighter twist on fruity tropical mango and calamansi bite. Sink your teeth into the decadent tiramisu with chocolate chips. Each creamy and moist bite gave an indulgent pampering that you can give yourself especially after a long day.
Mango & Calamansi Cheesecake at S$12.
Dolce Tiramisu with Chocolate Chips at S$12.
