OMG ODP!

25 Apr

ODP oh ODP oh how I love you so. ODP (Open Door Policy) is a little urbanised/ deconstructed/ grungy looking restaurant by the Spa Esprit Group in hipster central(a.k.a Tiong Bahru) in Singapore – a spin off concept of Tippling Club (at more affordable prices) by the same chef Ryan Clift. They’ve been around for a while (2 years? i think) and it’s our go-to place for date nights whenever we have no idea what new place to try or what we want to eat – ODP is the place because we know we’ll have a good time 🙂 On our latest Date Night No.-Dunno-What (it’s nice that we’ve lost count – either we’ve been on so many or they have been so far apart you lose track haha!) we had from ODP’s latest menu:

Risotto with Cuttlefish Ink and Sauteéd Cuttlefish with Garlic and Chili Pepper at L'Osteria Le Vigne (Milan)

Seafood Risotto at L'Osteria di Giovanni (Florence)

Zucchini Risotto at Peck (Milan)

I love the comforting feeling risotto gives – it’s my rice fix for when I’m away. With 6 packets of risotto now in my larder, I think I’d better pluck up some courage and get down to risotto making soon!
