Galbiati Gourmet Deli, The Rail Mall

Galbiati is one Italian gourmet deli which offers a fine selection of authentic Italian fare at afforable prices in a homely and unpretentious setting.
Besides catering to takeaway customers, the deli also serves a dine-in crowd in its small premise. Menu items include antipasti, pizza, soup, pasta, assorted bread, salad, biscotti, roasted meats, cheese, desserts, wine and selection of fine foods. Takeaway items like soups, sauces, lasagna are thoughtfully packed in microwavable containers, offering convenient choices for a wholesome home-cooked meal.

Upon entering the deli, I'm immediately attracted by aroma from the pizza and bread displayed at the open counter and antipasti in the display freezer. The display certainly whets one's appetite! I love variety in small packages, so this is definitely the eatery for me.

Assorted breads. Goes very well with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Do try the Focaccia bread flavoured with olive oil, herbs and different toppings such as cherry tomato, zucchini or olive.
One must try is the pizza. Cut into easy-to-eat slices, the pizzas here have thin and crispy crusts with delectable tomato base and mozzarella cheese. My favourite is the mushroom pizza topped with fresh and juicy mushroom. As I munched, the strong taste of mushroom filled the entire mouth and that makes me crave for even more.

Russian Potato Salad with diced potato, carrot and green peas mixed in mayonaise. Served cold, taste zesty and creamy.

Sliced Baked Potato in cream sauce. Served warm, comfort food for a cold day.

Chewy meatballs in tangy tomato sauce. Somehow, we still prefer Ikea's meatballs :p
There are just so many items that we are spoilt for choice. Heard that the Lamb Shank and Stuffed Portabello are hot favourites as well.
Not-to-be-missed are the Italian desserts, from classic Tiramisu to the exotic Lavender Cheesecake. I tried the Blueberry (or was it blackberry) Panna Cotta; the creamy gelatin melts in the mouth and is well complemented by the slightly sweet and sourish blueberry. Hmmm....

With such a wide variety of antipasti and desserts, this is one deli I will visit often.
