PAPI

PAPI, a popular Italian restaurant operated by veteran local restaurateur Benjamin Lung, has reopened in Fashion Walk’s famous Food Street, to the delight of its many foodie followers. Occupying two airy floors, the restaurant is decorated in a sleek and contemporary style, with eye-catching geometric shapes and loud colours serving as backdrop to a spacious setting.

 

PAPI offers a wide range of home-style Italian dishes ideal for sharing, including a menu of 15 cicchetti (small dishes), Tuscany traditional style pizza, fresh hand-made zesty pastas, and a range of meat and seafood main courses prefect for sharing.

 

For our meal, we were treated to a wide selection of dishes, all of which are delicious and appetising. Our cicchetti dishes included the Sautéed Mediterranean Octopus with paprika ($108), Sautéed Baby Spinach Garlic Potatoes ($88), and the zesty Florentine Stewed Beef Tripe ($118). Our pizza selection was a rich and flavourful Pizza with Tuscan Lardo Fat, Asparagus, Honey & Black Pepper ($178) – unusual, but delightfully tasty. Our pasta selection was Pici Di Papi, Home-made Tuscan Pici with Tomato sauce & Garlic Chips ($138). And for the main, we had the mouthwatering Roasted Italian Style Sucking Pig, with Braised Cabbage & Apple with Fig Sauce ($358). A Dessert Platter, comprising a trio of Tiramisu, Mixed Berries, Panna Cotta Gelato ($178), rounded off our delightful meal.

 

PAPI is perfect for a gathering of friends or family sharing a relaxed appetising meal. Be sure to book early.
