Sydney - Buon Ricordo

Have you heard of Armando?

He's a famous italian chef in Australia that appeared on a cooking show. One of my favourite home-cooked pasta was taught by him through his show! see here where i made his pasta

When i heard that his original restaurant is in Sydney and that restaurant pops up everywhere on the internet as one of the 'must-try' places in Sydney, i immediately made a reservation!

We walked quite a bit to the restaurant and it was situated in a very nice suburb

It was a weekday lunch hence it was quite empty. There were a few regulars there chatting with the owner, and then telling me how good the food was, it raised our expectations even higher!
It was a classic italian restaurant, simple yet elegant. The waiter was very attentive and the service was fantastic! 

I order the famous fettucine - $34.50
Fettucine with cream and parmesan, topped with a fried truffle egg 
This was tossed at the table by the waiter, so i could only get a picture of it post-tossed!

The cream was thick, fresh and heavenly. The taste of truffle with the creamy pasta was just a combination to die for! My friend and I were totally blown away by this dish

My friend's order - Tagliatelle - $29.50
Egg pasta with puree leeks, guanciale, fried sage leaves and parmesan

This pasta was as good as the creamy one and I think it should be given the same spotlight and credit as the fettucine! This pasta was lighter, and suitable for people who doesnt like thick creamy pasta. I loved this pasta, very delicious!

One more picture of the fettucine again!

Give this restaurant a try when you are in Sydney!
