Tatto @ Hampshire Place

Returning to the relocated Tatto at Hampshire Place. Previous entry: Sept. 26, 2012.

Can't ever resist burrata cheese, served here Caprese salad-style.

But our favorite at Tatto has to be the spicy seafood soup, a majorly flavorful recipe bristling with scallops, fish, mussels and other inhabitants of the ocean.

Roasted duck risotto. Tasty, but would be better if the rice were less mushy.

Four cheese gnocchi, sinfully satisfying. We wiped the whole plate clean before we knew it.

Tatto's pizza provides pure pleasure, with a base that's as crisp as we'd want it to be, well topped with spinach, olives, beef salami, mushrooms and ricotta.

Desserts are passable but imperfect. More liquor in the tiramisu would make it lovelier.

A fair version of the ubiquitous hot chocolate cake, centered with bittersweet creaminess.

    1. The Yum list: it can be a risk to order gnocchi in kl, since so many places botch it, but tatto's one is quite pleasing :D

    1. Missyblurkit: I usually prefer gnocchi with a meaty sauce instead of a cheesy one, but this one at tatto worked out ok in the end, heheh. And ya, hopefully the kitchen will master the art of the perfect risotto this year! :D

  10. Mmmm burrata cheese seems to be all the craze lately. I do love a plate of perfectly cooked, pillowy soft gnocchi. Yum!

    1. Kelly: ya, burrata cheese first surfaced at kl's restaurants only in mid-2011, but since then, it has steadily become very popular :D and yep, the type of gnocchi you just described is exactly the way i like it too! not easy to find though. many outlets serve their gnocchi stodgy, doughy or sometimes even powdery, unfortunately =)
