Atmastel adds on to the line of F&B places that are located at South Beach Avenue. Located beside Fynn’s, the restaurant had a decent lunch time crowd so I was glad we were there earlier. The culinary team is helmed by by Andrea Tarini, an Italian chef with a 3-Michelin-star background so I anticipated to see what Atmastel has to offer
Spaghetti A.O.P with Prawns $18.90
Spaghetti Aglio Olio Peperoncino with Prawns, Chilli Flakes, Olive Oil & Garlic
I felt like the spaghetti was rather normal. It didn’t last any impression on us. The pasta could be more fragrant with more spice. Even the prawns were.. meh
Barramundi with Peperonata $24.90
Panfried Barramundi with Capsicum Stew
This dish has a good flavour but I find the portion too small. When the dish was served, I was like hmm is this even filling as a main? I would rather they serve a hearty stew in a bowl topped with a piece of panfried barramundi without being sliced. The presentation would have looked more generous than what we see here
The fish came with a portion of bread which I was confused. Was it meant to dip into the stew and eat it together? But honestly, there isn’t much sauce to dip into!
Passionfruit Creme Brûlée $12.90
Custard Cream, Chocolate Soil, Passionfruit Granite with Almond Tuile
The creme brûlée probably last the most impression on us. Infused with a sweet and sour passionfruit taste, you can taste the variation of sweetness in the custard, topped with a crisp almond tuile
I thought the food here was just okay. I think I would rather go for traditional Italian flavours. This place felt like it’s neither here nor there or perhaps much need to be improved here in order to find that balance.
