Wenwei and I were done with expensive hotel food so we ventured out and landed in Carluccio's, one of the most recommended restaurants in the Mall's 1200 establishments.
Spaghetti alle vongole in bianco - neopolitan spaghetti with whole fresh clams, garlic, herbs and chilli at DHS 58
Penne piccanti - penne with beef sauce made with chillies and rosemary at DHS 54
But what really made us sit there in the first place, the discovery of the brilliant cafe was just a happy accident, was because we wanted front row streets to the fountain show. It was a beautiful symphony of light, water and sound.
We sat through 4 shows, with 20 minute intervals per show.
And in the end, we had crepe al frutti di bosco - homemade pancake topped with a compote of woodland fruits and served with ice cream for DHS 32
