Gastronomia Da Paolo

Picnic meal

I’ve never been a fan of nature and sitting on grass was something I was forced to do in school, so a garden picnic is the last thing I would want. But Jeen spoke about how nice a picnic at Botanic Garden is, how the trees are large and shady and how clean the place is. So I caved and tried a garden picnic.

Shady trees


Bye bye jeans!

Yes, the garden was very clean and the trees were large and shady. But it was too hot for comfort. Silly me wore jeans because I didn’t want to get bitten by bugs so imagine the heat! I took my pants off eventually. No need to buy me a cocktail even…lol!

Chicken lasagna

Caprese Salad

Bland filling

rif and I bought lunch from Gastronomia Da Paolo across the road – chicken lasagna (SGD9), shepherd’s pie (SGD8) and caprese salad (SGD9). The salad was quite decent but I didn’t like the lasagna. It tasted rather bland and the pasta sheets were a tad thick. rif’s pie was better, but still quite ordinary in my books.

Shepherd's Pie

Maybe if I sat on a proper table, I would enjoy the food better. No more garden picnics for me please!
