Chrimbo dinner - Sardo

Since JD and I were heading back to our respective families over Chrimbo, we decided to head to one of our favourite restos in town for a bit of a treat! The resto was pretty busy with a number of Xmas parties taking place, giving the place a nice festive atmosphere. As always, the food was scrummy - we had booked a few days before and there was no problem with securing a table for 8pm (woohoo for somewhere not trying to squish 2/3 sittings a night!!). Service for the most part was OK.....competent at the very least (yep, am still grumbling about my Hix experience!). As usual, we rolled out of the place cradling our tummies filled with yummy food! :)
 Bread basket - very hard to resist!

Spaghetti bottarga (salted fish roe) - a Sardinian speciality, tasty but very rich! 

 I plumped for one of the daily specials of pan fried duck and braised duck leg with broccolli - delish!

 Pannacotta with berry coulis - pretty wobbly this time!

Sugar packets with JD's coffee - me Libra, he Cancer :)
