My Birthday 2012 @ Bruno's Pizzeria & Grill

Monday, August 20, 2012 Anonymous 2 Comments

Hi everyone!

How quickly the week has flown by and I just realised that amidst all the rushing around for the next launch for Foster Bay  - " Girl Generation" ( launching tonight at 8pm) with photoshoots and backend prep, it's already the weekend and it's my BIRTHDAY!!!

Wow...another year older ( well feels like 10yrs anyway!!!) and this is usually a time when I start to get a lil down cos I start to worry too much about  whether I managed to fulfill my goals and aspirations in the year just passed and what I intend to do in the future.

Anyway my dear husband organised a nice quiet dinner just Dad, Mom and us at Bruno's Pizzeria & Grill at 338 Tanjong Katong Road. A nice cosy restaurant, but packed on a Sunday night with couples and families. Dad said " the food must be good then" since this was the first time we were trying it out eventhough we just live round the corner from them.

Service was good, though at times I had to translate a lil for my English husband who found it a lil difficult to understand the local accented servers. However the delight of the evening was certainly in the quality of food served. As mentioned, it's not the decor or location that sells for Bruno's but after our first try there, we can most confidently say that the food is certainly worth every dollar of it and the quantity is more than one can ask for. We had to ask to doggie bag our main course as well as starter cos it was just too much for either one of us to finish off our own main courses, let alone with the starters.

Baked 1/2 dozen Escargot

To start, as a treat I ordered from the specials list - 1/2 dozen Escargots which was done to perfection with garlic butter and pesto sauce, whilst the rest of my family had the Fruitti De Mare Fritto ( Deep Fried Prawn & Calamari platter).
Pollo Alla Romana - Pan fried Chicken Breast with melted Mozarella Cheese and Sage Sauce, with Parma Ham
Dad had the Chicken breast called " Pollo Alla Romana" of which the chicken breast was pan fried and served with a rich creamy sage sauce, and topped with parma ham. This dish was served with a side salad and mash potato.  Mom on the other hand decided to have the "Americana" pizza which was typically a Hawaiian pizza but obviously done with nice shaved ham and obviously thin crusted.
Ravioli Al Funghi Porcini Creama - Stuffed Pasta with Porcini mushroom in cream sauce with white truffle oil
 For me, I had my sights set on the Ravioli Al Funghi Porcini Creama, simply because I am  a lover of any dish made with truffle oil and therefore immediately gravitated to this choice and even asked for an extra dose of truffle oil ( albeit at an additional cost of S$ 2) but it was certainly worth it! Rich and creamy, the Ravioli's were large and well stuffed and the mushrooms added that extra oomph to the dish. It was a lil too heavy for me to eat it in one go, but somehow managed to at least stuff myself with 3/4 of that portion. Am sure had we not had any starters, it would be an appropriate portion for anyone to finish.

Linguine Gamberoni E Creama Di Aragosta - Linguine with King Prawn cooked in pink lobster sauce
My dear husband Frank, cleaned out his main course with much delight. He had the Linguine Gamberoni E Creama Di Aragosta which was linguine with King Prawns ( and my were they large!) cooked in pink lobster sauce. As hoteliers, we obviously had many opportunities in our life to taste good food and in his case, he was amazed for a small suburban restaurant like this to serve such good portions and tasty  dishes. Bruno's could have easily been setup in a hotel setting at a much higher rate with its food quality.

We later found out that they do offer reasonably priced 2 or 3 course lunch sets from tuesday to fridays from S$ 13.90+++ per person.

So enough on the food, most of you would be wondering " What did the Style Architect wear on this big day?" Well my friends let me tell you, it was no easy decision and I had to change at least 3 times before finally making the wise decision to wear my own FOSTER BAY outfit, simply because I get to make my wish on my birthday, so am hoping that by wearing Foster Bay, I would add that lil extra luck to the business too. I also wanted to showcase to some of you who had commented to me before that they felt Foster Bay's outfits were only for younger girls and catered to smaller size ladies ( S-M). But you can easily see, and I'm not afraid to admit - a standard US 8/ UK 12 and I think I have done a pretty good job showcasing this Foster Bay outfit, right?

So here are a few more pics of the big day for me and I hope you enjoyed this unsual post of mine merging both lifestyle and fashion. Enjoy!
