Lunch with DARRELL ANG @ RUBATO Modern Italian Trattoria

Where do glamourous orchestral conductors like DARRELL ANG go when they want to get a good meal, to wind down with a well-deserved gourmet meal and a glass of wine among friends? RUBATO Modern Italian Trattoria, on 3 Clover Way (nestled among shop houses in between a residential district and flatted factories off Jalan Pemimpin) is the place to be. As the Italian musical term rubato implies, it is an art to take some time off strict and busy work schedules to indulge in the finer things of life. So the name of the restaurant fits; Rubato time is time to let your hair down, relax and enjoy.

The main menu board with Rubato's specialities are clear for all to see.

Here is Rubato's owner and chief chef Marcus Edwin Wu, with a choice appetizer - the Burratina (hand-stretched buffalo Mozarella cheese) with Parma ham platter. Very exotic.

Few things beat a glass of white wine.

Another speciality of the house - freshly vongole in broth. According to Marcus, the juicy clams were still alive and kicking ten minutes ago.

Chef Edwin with another prized entree - Veal ravioli with truffle porcini, full of creamy richness. This has to be eaten to be believed.

A lovely dessert.

A good restaurant always has a good piano on the side. This Yamaha grand is in tune too!
Here Darrell and Pianomaniac try their hands on S Kommt ein Vogel gegflogen Variations by Siegfried Ochs (in the style of the great masters).

A final coffee before we depart.
