Antipasti (RM 68)

Traditional Bruschetta (RM 20)

A full 5-course Italian dinner always starts with a starters and Sigi's has Traditional Bruschetta, Marianted Mozzas, Calamari Fritti or Antipasti for Two to choose from. We managed to sample the Antipasti for Two (RM 68), and it was a beautiful platter of buffalo mozzarella, flavourful bresaola and chorizo-accompanied with grilled marinated eggplant alongside a traditional assortment of marinated baby asparagus, olives, and artichoke hearts, with chargrilled baguette slices.

The Antipasti was a well balanced creation. As eggplant is a quick flavour absorber, grilling it renders a nice smoky flavour with a well browned texture. Grab it along with some chorizo to enhance the meaty taste or baby asparagus for some crunchy sensation. Overall, the antipasti is something light to nibble before starting the meal.

If you prefer vegetarian option, then opt for Traditional Bruschetta (RM 20) that comes with warm and toasted baguette topped with freshly chopped tomatoes, basil and a bit of garlic.
