Five dishes to try at the revamped Tanzini at GTower

Tanzini at GTower has been revamped into a casual dining restaurant specialising in modern European cuisine, heavily influenced by classic Italian dishes while featuring hints of Asian flavours. The roomy restaurant holds two private rooms with views of the city skyline on top of the main dining hall and a cosy lounge by the bar. Here are some of the dishes to try:

Tanzini prides itself on its housemade pasta, and there are seven varieties to choose from: spaghetti, tagliatelle, fettuccine, squid ink spaghetti, gnocchi, penne and fusilli. The pastas are made with eggs and low gluten flour, and as such they are slightly less firm than usual. The vegetarian Boscaiola is a creamy pasta dish punctuated with portobello, white and brown shimeji mushrooms as well as leeks.

Wrapped in a thin translucent rice sheet, these rolls are very appetising thanks to the tart yuzu dressing. The rolls are filled with willow leaf fish, squid roe, grilled egg and salted egg.

A sweet and savoury salted egg cream cheese filling is encased in a dark chocolate ‘cigar’. The creaminess is balanced out with the bright acidity from the wild berries served on the side.
