View Rooftop Bar revised

June 18, 2011

The View: Round Two. Earlier entry: June 10.

Returning for playfully inventive cocktails. This time, Gula Melaka-infused booze: Caipiroska (absolut blue, lime wedges, gula melaka) & Champagne Tropicale (mango, Luxardo maraschino liquor, Mumm's champagne, gula melaka).

Hopped downstairs to Tanzini to fill our tummies, since The View's kitchen wasn't operating during our most recent visit (plus, only finger food was on the bar menu),

We prayed for pasta perfection, but the food fell short of stellar. Nothing fundamentally wrong with this angel hair pasta with lobster medallions & bisque (though it lacked the black truffles promised on the menu), but there was little oomph in the flavor. Kinda like the service, which is efficient but not warm.

Handmade squid ink pasta with Pernod-flamed crab meat. Tanzini isn't stingy with its seafood, which comes in bountiful portions (commensurate with the hefty prices).

Chili tagliatelle with tiger prawn & ikura. Tasted all right, though again, a truffle component was missing _ this was meant to be scented with white truffle oil, but we couldn't detect any.

Orvietto Classico Doc 2008 (Italy).
Earlier entries on Tanzini: August 10 & August 13.

To wrap up, more parting shots of the View's various features and sights.
