Throw­back Pasta

HK Magazine - - DINING -

A new chef de cui­sine is rais­ing the stakes at home-style Ital­ian restau­rant Sa­ba­tini (3/F, The Royal Gar­den, 69 Mody Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui East, 2733-2000), revamping the menu with cre­ative dishes rooted in var­i­ous re­gions of Italy. Chef Gleb Sne­gin pre­vi­ously sharp­ened his knives at La Fer­mata in Casaten­ovo and Trus­sardi Alla Scala in Mi­lan, be­fore mov­ing to Asia to head up the menu at Ter­razza Ital­ian Restau­rant in Galaxy Ma­cau, which won its first star in the lat­est Miche­lin guide. The new menu at Sa­ba­tini fea­tures six or so chef’s rec­om­men­da­tions, in­clud­ing anelli pasta with lob­ster and spicy sausage ($508, right) and parmi­giana risotto with black trum­pet mush­rooms and bal­samic vine­gar ($428) ex­hibit­ing chef Sne­gin’s deft­ness with el­e­vat­ing clas­sic Ital­ian com­fort carbs. Try sev­eral plates to share, and don’t miss out on the amaretti and ca­cao pud­ding with chan­tilly and hazel­nut ice cream ($128) for a sweet end­ing to the meal.
