The new kid of Duxton Hill, replacing the now-defunct The Jackson Plan, is Latteria Mozzarella Bar. Interestingly, both The Jackson Plan and Latteria Mozzarella Bar are opened by the same owner of Il Lido Italian Dining at Sentosa Golf Club. Aptly named a mozzarella bar, it is no surprise that cheese is used in almost all of their dishes.

Warm bread was served after our orders were taken. The bread exuded a strange mild Prosperity Cake (發 糕) fragrance. But texture wise, it was rather crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside.

Baked Eggplant Parmigiana ($20) -The eggplant parmigiana arrived, looking slightly charred and piping hot. Taste wise, the layers of cheese, eggplant and tomato sauce wasn’t too salty, probably due to the kind and amount of cheese used. We would definitely prefer a stronger cheese flavour, but Latteria’s version was still pretty good. The best thing was that it wasn’t oily at all and the charred portions added the extra crunch and fragrance.

Latteria Mac and Cheese ($25) – Previously, we had tried risotto prepared in a cheese barrel. This time round, it was Mac and Cheese served in a pumpkin bowl! It was like a relative of the traditional Thai pineapple rice. The macaroni was served together with 4 kinds of mozzarella cheeses. The macaroni was cooked al dente, but once again, we felt that this dish could do with more cheese. As always, with cheesy dishes comes the high probability that one would get sick of the overwhelming saltiness and richness. In this case, this was balanced by the sweetness of the pumpkin. As the entire pumpkin was baked together with the Mac and Cheese, the pumpkin flesh on the sides of the wall was rather soft and mushy, and could be easily scraped off. Hence, for those who have a slightly lower tolerance for cheese, the pumpkin flesh was a good way to bring down the cheesiness. The portion served was humongous. In fact, one order of the Mac and Cheese could be shared amongst two or three people to reduce the carbohydrate overload from the pasta and pumpkin.
