Fahrenheit 600 @ Solaris & iCook @ Sri Hartamas

March 28, 2013

Pursuing pizzas & pastas: Returning to Fahrenheit 600 at Solaris Dutamas & checking out iCook Italian Gastronomias new pork-loving branch in Sri Hartamas.

Fahrenheit 600 is finally ready to serve pizzas; the compact selections fairly priced, charging about RM20 for a nine-inch, square-shaped pizza that two can share.

Encouraging elements: Hand-crafted dough, fresh mozzarella, house-made tomato sauce & a wood-fired brick oven for 600-degree-Fahrenheit baking.

The signature pizzas meat-free, topped with eggplant, feta, onions, garlic & tomato sauce. Satisfyingly flavorsome; Fahrenheit 600s pizzas are the thick-crust variety, offering a fluffy chew.

Other options include the Savoyard Square topped with turkey, potatoes, onions & cream sauce; customers can also create pizzas with their own choice of toppings.

A two-minute drive from Fahrenheit 600, iCook has opened its second outlet, branching out from PJ to Hartamas; unlike its 3 Two Square cafe, this Plaza Damas venue serves pork.

Chef Nicola Carradori, formerly of Delucca, remains the enthusiastic engine behind iCook.

Twice-cooked pancetta with braised cannelloni beans & buttered cabbage (RM15+), a meaty starter thats the ideal introduction to this iCook branch.

No-cream, egg-enhanced spaghetti carbonara with Parma ham, savory & non-cloying.

Pork sausage risotto with clams, chili chicken & bell peppers (RM32+), hearteningly hearty.

Tuscan-style beef tripe with grana cheese (RM12+). Squishy, not for the squeamish.

Liquor-lovin, spoon-lickin-good tiramisu to wrap up a meal that hits most of its marks.

Corkage charge is RM25. iCook opens for dinner this month; lunch service starts soon.
