It really is a good plan when you get to end your grocery shopping with chardonnay. Ladies and gents, bring your carts and hearts to Sorrentina by Foodhall, the Linking Road superstore's in-house Italian restaurant that has recently launched Salute, Italian happy hours that involve a galaxy of small plates and special deals on alcohol. Count us in!
From 4 pm to 8 pm every Monday to Friday; and from 4 pm to 7 pm on Saturdays, you get 20% off on a glass or bottle of wine, beer or a cocktail; and any four small plates at Rs 1,000.
Speaking of small plates, the Piccoli Piatti here turn aperitivo into art, at once transporting you to an evening in Milan. Pick from Parmesan Rocks & Crispy Parmesan Rind; Marinated Olives with fennel seeds, rosemary and garlic; Zucchini Guacamole served with tomato pane; Stracciatella cheese served with cranberry and hazelnut gremolata and bread; Maple Peanuts and Crispy Pancetta; Roasted Artichoke with truffle honey and Parmesan panko crumbs; and Taralli, Italian ‘pretzel’ stick with Sorrentina spice mix and olive pestato.
Heartier options are available on order; see Panelle, chickpea fritters with tomato pestato; Pizza Fritta, served with carrettiera (red sauce) dip; Savoury Cannoli of pulled chicken, alfredo sauce and shallots; and Parma Ham with seasonal melon and aged balsamic. We'd also urge you to turn your attention towards their hand-stretched Neapolitan Pizza.
Sign us up for a piece of the pie!
