Decor at Sopra Cucina

Had lunch at the newly opened Sopra Cucina at Claymore Road recently. The restaurant and bar served Sardinian cuisine which honestly, I didn't have a clue about. That's where Googling does a wonderful on the spot job. Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea that lies off the east coast of Italy and one of its food specialty includes roasted suckling pig cooked over a log fire, infused with myrtle leaves. Suckling pig is popular in Chinese and Spanish cuisine (done differently of course) but didn't realised that the Italians or more the Sardinians had their version too.

I settled for a set lunch of bean soup with the main course of cod and capers. Was told that the bean soup was clear but it wasn't so when it came. Not that it mattered as I was more interested in my friend's salad. Fortunately, the cod with capers was really tasty. The capers didn't overpower the taste of the cod which was good. Didn't take any pictures till we had desserts where we had to make our way to the trolley, a beautiful vintage piece with a showcase glass. For a vintage loving person like me, I had to whip up my camera.
