Buttero – Tras Street [Permanently Closed]

If you are looking for some after-work comfort food or to catch up with friends for dinner, then Tras Street is just the place. The casual Italian eatery, Buttero located on this street serves some great Italian food. The menu has interesting dishes which aroused my curiosity – I just had to try them! The restaurant has an open-kitchen concept where you can see the chefs in action. I particularly liked the mug in which water was served as it literally gave a starry feel.

The Orders
When we chatted with the chef and informed him of our liking for good cheese, he promptly informed us that fresh ‘Burrata Cheese’ was in the offing. We were impressed with the quality of the cheese – it was extremely soft and buttery. It was served with a roasted cherry tomatoes salad.

I was interested in trying the eggplant dish called ‘Parmigiana’ which was served in a griddle pan. The grilled eggplant was the star of the dish but I must mention the tomato sauce as the base was delicious. It contained Parmesan in the right amount and was well-seasoned. If you are a fan of eggplant, go for this.

In a Italian menu, gnocchi generally interests me because even though it consists of simple ingredients, it is not easy to get it right. The ‘Gnocchi Gratinati’ was served in a sizzling creamy sauce and was a flavour bomb of cheese, mushroom and truffle. It was rich and very indulgent.

As every dish was tasting great, we also ordered the ‘Spinach Ravioli’. The dough was very good and the ricotta cheese added a perfect taste to the delicious tomato sauce base.

You just cannot finish this delicious meal without desserts. Since we were quite full, we decided to go with our favourite ‘Tiramisu’. It was the perfect end to the meal – rich and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness that pulled you in for the next bite.

The best part of our meal was that we could forget about pizzas for a change and enjoy vegetarian Italian cuisine in other forms. For its quality offering in terms of ingredients and taste, Buttero is highly recommended.
