Another addition to the Seagrass Boutique Hospitality Group is Italian Street Kitchen, serving up authentic Italian, house-made woodfired pizza and lots of it.
Sardines were oily, pickled and fishy in a good way
Arancini $2.5 each roasted pumpkin, smoked provolone, parmesan, thyme and panko crumb
These arancini balls were piping hot and the panko crumb stood out particularly because of how crunchy they were
The caciotella was mild in taste but with the addition of honey and oregano and then oven-baked, it became a delicious warm, gooey, lightly sweet dip.
Gnocchi made from semolina has a lighter consistency than regular gnocchi made from potato. There’s plenty of creamy bechamel and Napoli tomato sauce to coat the gnocchi pieces.
Funghi $15 Mozzarella base, Gorgonzola, Swiss brown mushroom, Parmesan and parsley
The pizzas are hand made and made the Roman way, light and crispy. The funghi pizza is slick with melted cheese and the crust is appealingly thin and crispy.
Rocket salad $8 Rocket, tomato, Spanish onion, Kalamata olive, Parmesan and lemon oil dressing
Gelato $3 Flavours vary
Gelato is supplied from Italian company La Vezzi, tonight’s flavours were honeycomb, chocolate and pistachio. There were issues with the freezer so the chocolate was a little icy but the honeycomb and pistachio were perfectly creamy and smooth, strong in their respective flavours.
Cremafritta $9 Italian custard creme, fried and dusted with icing sugar. Served with chocolate fondue
Custard creme is crumbed and deep fried, they’re pleasingly crunchy and the custard is only slightly sweet inside. The menu says its served with chocolate fondue but it’s actually served with chocolate gelato.
Tasting everything a tiramisu should, it was creamy, chocolate-y and fragrant with coffee.
MsBrulee dined as guests of Italian Street Kitchen. Opinions however are my own.
