For all you Italian lovers out there, Coral at Ocean Pearl, Mangalore has just launched their Italian Food Festival. They have a wide variety of splendid Italian delicacies to devour. Following are the dishes you should try and not try:
Must Try Dishes:
1. Brodo Di Pollo:
A simple clear chicken soup with a twist of asparagus, very light and delicious.
2. Buruschetta Con Pollo Rosmarino:
Garlic bread stacked with taosted chicken and rosemary on lettuce. A very creamy and smooth starter.
3. Linguini Agli Olio E Pepporoncino:
Penne Pasta tossed with Garlic Chilli, extra virgin olive oil and exotic vegetables. If you like garlic then this will be one of the finest pasta you have had.
Pockets filled with Ricotta & Spinach, this is a must try dish, one of the best at this festival.
An all time classic dessert, this is a perfect end to the meal.
Must Not Try Dishes:
Deep fried balls of risotto with cheese, very bland and plain. The dip on the other hand was Orange Mayo, lovely!
This was a huge disappointment as the pizza base was soggy. Do make sure to check the base as soon as you order this, if you do.
3.Torta Della Nona:
This dessert looked fantastic. But was a huge disappointment taste wise as there was a harsh odour of egg doubled with lemon. The tiramisu is way better.
On the whole the Italian fest is a must try as long as you stick to the must try dishes. Do try out other stuff from the menu too. They seem to be great.
