Bar Reggio, Crown Street, Darlinghurst

After a long but satisfying day at work, I decided to treat myself to some Italian grub.

Kind of an institution at Darlinghurst, Bar Reggio serves up a delectable fare paying strict attention to detail and quality control over all these years.

Putting the entire meal together

Interesting how an Italian restaurant has it's own home-made Sambal Chili that just might give me the "Pacific Rim" of fire tomorrow morning.

Looks can be deceiving. This is not the gritty sand-like cheese of a questionable origin you find in supermarkets. It is actually real Parmesan (Parmigiano Reggiano) 

Slow Braised Osso Bucco. This dish needs no introduction. With a melt in your mouth consistency and bone marrow to suck off the bone, this could arguably be the ideal dish for a cold winter.

Bar Reggio's famous BBQ octopus salad. Char-grilled till smoky and tender, this should satisfy most seafood lovers out there.

I opted to go for grilled vegetables to accompany the meal. However, people who are not low carbing can choose to have mash, chips or even pasta as a side.
