Da Paolo Gastronomia Mooncake

Da Paolo Gastronomia’s miniature mooncakes make a beautiful chilled treat for the Mid­ Autumn Festival; traditionally celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Da Paolo Gastronomia’s modern take on this customary Chinese sweet delicacy has a thin and white outer skin and a light salted egg custard filling. The delicate skin is hand made with rice flour and finished with an auspicious “Shou”, the longevity symbol . Da Paolo’s signature filling is hand cooked with fresh eggs, fresh milk and sugar. The salted egg yolks are folded into the filling to mirror the imperial yellow hue of a full moon on the Mid Autumn Festival night. Complement this experience with a cup of fragrant Green Jasmine Tea (available at Gastronomia). These 8 delightful mini mooncakes are packed in a vibrant, speckled orange box finished with a gold stamp.

[SINGAPORE]: Da Paolo BistroBar, PizzaBar & Gastronomia

In celebration of Singapore’s 51st National Day, Da Paolo BistroBar, a contemporary dining destination located amid the cluster of colonial bungalows in Rochester Park, has taken an innovative touch to complement its Signature Pastas. Chef Kip Fatt has taken a novel contemporary spin on the familiar classic Singapore Curry Laksa. Bar Manager Farhhad pairs with an exotic twist on the popular Iced.

@ Da Paolo BistroBar 
Singapore Laksa Pasta

Homemade Tagliolini, Slipper Lobster, Fresh Cockles, Laksa Leaves ; The mere mention of fragrant Singapore Laksa starts to excite one’s tastebuds. Da Paolo BistroBar’s rendition of Singapore Laksa Pasta ($29) packs a lot of flavour. Handmade egg tagliolini binds perfectly in a freshly reduced Laksa sauce akin to a flaming Sicilian sunset. This rich and aromatic sauce begins with pan seared slipper lobster in olive oil till golden brown and a generous portion of well cooked fresh cockles in the savoury and scrumptious Laksa broth. Although full bodied, the sauce is light and aromatic. Garnished with freshly chopped laksa leaves to add that kick.

The secret is the perfect balance of lemongrass, chilli, laksa leaves and savoury fresh seafood of slipper lobster and cockles. There is a gluten­free* pasta option for an additional $3.*Gluten­free pasta is prepared in the same kitchen as regular pasta. Traces of gluten may be present.

Iced Chendol Rum

Spiced Rum, Malibu Rum, Coconut Milk, ‘Gula Melaka’, Nata de Coco Iced Chendol, sold by roadside vendors in the past, has become a quintessential dessert in Singapore. Not overly sweet, Da Paolo BistroBar’s Iced Chendol Rum ($16) is served in a traditional Boston glass mug. Shaved ice is flavoured with Spiced Rum and Malibu Rum.

The subtle woody tones complement the delicious taste of coconut milk and a tinge of smokiness from the palm sugar. Sweet and savoury, the golden­brown palm sugar mixes well with the ice and infuses a sweetness to the cocktail. Nata De Coco ups the ante and adds the crunch to the tropical finale.

@ Da Paolo PizzaBar
Singapore Chilli Crab Pizza

Sardinian Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Soft Shell Crab, Crab Meat, Homemade Chili Sauce, Egg, Coriander & Crispy ‘Mantou’ Chilli crab is among Singapore’s greatest culinary heritage; the king of all crab dishes. This supremely satisfying staple involves dipping fried or steamed mantou buns, to soak up the comforting sauce – a delightful blend of stir­fried tomatoes and sambal chilli paste, thickened with ribbons of beaten eggs.

Da Paolo PizzaBar’s Singapore Chilli Crab Pizza ($32) embodies this seafood delight with freshly made Sardinian Tomato Sauce and home made sweet chilli sauce. This delicious pizza is an unpretentious interpretation, topped with a sunny­-side-­up egg to augment the flavour and texture reminiscent of the sweet yet savoury, slightly spicy and supremely satisfying Chilli Crab dish. The delightful crispy and crunchy Mantou strips perfectly complement the generous portions of crabmeat and soft shell crab. There are Gluten­free pizza options available for an additional $5.*

*Gluten­free pizza is prepared in the same oven as regular pizza. Traces of gluten may be present.

Chicken Curry Croissant

Generations of Singaporeans have grown up with fond memories of mum’s delicious curry chicken prepared for family celebrations. Each family recipe has as many as 30 different herbs and spices which are blended, fried and simmered together for a gravy with a distinct flavour, colour and texture. Da Paolo Gastronomia’s Chicken Curry Croissant ($7.20) is an artisanal curry croissant made daily by hand. The flaky pastry has chunky chicken, potatoes and onion filling that is sauteed to perfection in a fragrant homemade Asian curry rempah. The aromatic spices and tender pieces of chicken make this Chicken Curry Croissant a definite crowd pleaser.

Heating instructions:

The croissant is best eaten warm. Place the croissant on a baking tray with a sheet of aluminium foil over the croissant to prevent burning the top. Put in a toaster (on high setting) for about 15 minutes, or in an oven at around 200C for 7 minutes.

Gula Melaka Crodo With Coconut Shavings

Da Paolo Gastronomia’s Crodo is a croissant and donut hybrid. Pastry lovers who enjoy Gastronomia’s signature cream­filled Crodos will be ecstatic about the new Gula Melaka Crodo ($5.10). Each Crodo is consistently hand shaped and deep fried. The smooth pastry cream within is distinctly flavoured with smoky palm sugar, accented with coconut. It is then finished with a delicate sprinkling of coconut shavings on top of a light glaze.
