Traditional fine dining really isn't my thing. I like the new wave of restaurants where:
a) I am not overserved - you can go overboard with service, I can't even stand a napkin being placed on me
b) I actually understand everything on the menu - and yes, pictures help
c) I can have a conversation and not feel like I am in a library
d) I can stay and have a drink
e) Have comfort food
Stella does the trick.
|Truffled Beef Belly|
|Butcher's Choice Pizza|
|Cookie Dough with Vanilla Ice cream|
I was very impressed with the Truffled Beef Belly, I could smell the truffle oil in all its delectable potency. The beef was tasty and thinly sliced, I even made a sandwich with it and the complimentary bread. The pizza is rich and normally I chuck away pizza crusts to my awaiting dogs at home this crust I actually enjoyed. Airy, not too thin and not too thick, the wood fire pizza certainly lends a certain something, something that made me really enjoy it.
The pricing wasn't too bad either, the beef was 580 and the pizza was 350 making this a great date meal at a budget. Stella's menu proclaims that their dishes are meant to be shared. This is one place I shall return to soon.
