Quick Bite: Biella's Osso Buco and Filetto Di CerniaSunday, May 10, 2015
Biella's always been one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Doha. They have branches at malls which are really very convenient for us, especially if we have errands to run and some grocery shopping to do.
One of the main reasons I love Biella is their mushroom soup. I'm not really a fan of mushrooms, I think it's its texture, but for some reason I love Biella's. I only got to try it by chance, when we first ate here and Raymond ordered it and made me try. If it was totally up to me, we wouldn't have ordered it at all. But I'm so glad we did back then.
In another attempt to make full use of our Entertainer App, we have decided to have dinner at Biella for the nth time. And these are what we devoured on...

We first tried the Osso Buco in The One Restaurant (read about it here). The Osso Buco from Biella was very different from that of The One's. The texture of the sauce was a creamier sauce and it had more flavour, as if a lot of other ingredients were braised with it. If I were to choose between the two, I'd say the one of Biella's has won my heart.

As usual, I was looking on getting a salmon for myself, but changed my mind the last minute because Raymond was teasing me again on always having salmon (can you even blame me? I love salmon). So when my order came I was a bit grumpy, but that changed when I took my first bite. The crust of the hammour was a perfect crisp and went really well with whatever those leaves are atop it. The only thing that I didn't like is the tomato-based sauce for the potatoes, I'm not really a fan of tomato paste. I think I would've loved the whole dish even more it were only seasoned potatoes.
