Pocoloco @ Snow City

Pocoloco @ Snow City

As I mentioned in the blog on NinaKennett.net about our Snow City – for the 1st time in forever… we have not been to Snow City for about 6+ years now. Jude was not born, so this was his 1st time, and BeBe too. We were going for lunch 1st before enjoying the snow so had a quick look at the website and saw they had a restaurant now, well that’s new. A new restaurant here is Pocoloco @ Snow City.

I asked the guys how long they have been open. Three years was the answer. Wow, we really have not been here forever. I’ll let them intro themselves 1st and then give some food overviews with some snaps. Here comes Pocoloco @ Snow City.

Created by the guys from Siam Square Mookata, who I fid out to have like 5+ other restaurants across Red Dot. Pocoloco @ Snow City is the one-of-its-kind brewery that pairs Italian food with handcrafted beers. Instead of regular German pork knuckles and sausages, they pair it with pasta, risotto and other Italian dishes.

They state Pocoloco is the best solution for whoever like authentic Italian food in Singapore. They import most of their food directly from Italy in order to give the best in terms of quality and authenticity. They choose only the products of the best Italian brands.

We had a really nice lunch here. The food was really nice. It was also quite a surprise so made all the better. Our previous Snow City experiences have been McDonalds (Boo) at Science Centre or the tiny little Cafe Kiosk in Snow City itself. So to have Pocoloco @ Snow City was a major upgrade to our experience today. The staff were really great as well. Very engaging and extremely friendly.

That is one cool micro-brewery. Flexible dry-January kicks in. Hell, it’s Ollie’s IB Diploma celebrations this evening.

Happy families time. It’s literally like a ski-lodge experience. Quite a strange feeling as we have all our ski gear and boots on whilst in a restaurant in Singapore. It really did take me back to days of skiing with the boys and popping for some apres-ski in the local Gasthaus or lodge. Loved it!

But Ollie and I didn’t love this. A Verde Lager. Made green using some seaweed extract. Yeah, not so nice. It tasted like neat chemicals. But, what I do love is the drink coolers – nice touch!!!

Ollie goes for the mushroom soup. Clearly made from fresh mushrooms because of the texture, and accompanied by a little truffle oil methinks. Vert nice indeed, just a little more seasoning needed for me though.

A rather nice Carpaccio. Less rocket please, we ain’t going to the moon and I couldn’t see the meat under the bush. A stunner of a balsamic drizzle with this. The team here had really thinly sliced up a Sirloin. Super tender and tasty. Really did enjoy this dish.

Come on how could I not order this. Pan-seared Foie Gras in a Truffle Cream Sauce. Topped with a little Balsamic glaze again. Yeah, groovy. Unctuous or what?

Wifey and BeBe had to choose this one. If they had not I would have been really really surprised. This is Uni Risotto. Yes, Uni or fresh sea urchin imported from Hokkaido and turned into a risotto. Wifey said it was incredible. It disappeared, literally disappeared. Good job I got in early for a photo.

I chose this for Jude and he really enjoyed it. Cannelloni Ripieni de Angelo. This was a minced lamb stuffed green Cannelloni with oodles of melted gooey cheese baked in the oven. Yeah, this is comfort food. Just what you need after a busy morning on the ski-slopes. HaHa.

We also ordered two of these. Fegato d’Oca Risotto. Another risotto. Cooked really well and punching with flavour. This time it is a Foie Gras Risotto. Oh yeah, baby! Really nice.

Sometimes Strawbery Blonde is so annoying. Chicken Wings please… seems to become a standard order these days. With the above options, she went and chose bloody pizza. So I started off annoyed, but then this little puppy rocked up. Bolognese Pizza. Even the pizza based has tomato in it, so it is orangey-red in colour. Good looking pizza that was completely consumed. Nice.

And one final surprise. A Creme Brulee was on the dessert menu. As you know it is an unwritten rule that if this is on a menu I have to try it. Pocoloco @ Snow City, I tell you what boys this is one of the very very best we have ever had. This is up there with Chef Chris Salans’ version in Ubud, Bali. This rocked! So great to see all those Vanilla seeds in the bottom. QUALITY!!!

I love food surprises and Pocoloco @ Snow City surely gave them to us today. I was expecting to be cold and wet and snacking on my least favourite food from the ageing clown chain. But no, I was grazing on really good quality Italian food. The kids had a blast in Snow City. We had a wonderful lunch. What an incredible few hours we had over West. If you happen to want some good fun kid-time, look no further. Get your warm shit on and make sure you pop upstairs for a cracking Italian with the boys – ENJOY!!!
