Cena - Vigin Mudset

We're trying a new restaurant to us - Vigin Mudset, located opposite the Chiesa di San Giuseppe.




Its focus in on traditional piemontese dishes and amongst the usual suspects they offer a 26 course fritto misto (needs to be booked in advance).

For starters:



Carne Cruda - quite a decent serving, excellent meat, simple flavourings.

Paalo orders the misto di antipasti caldi (mixed hot antipasto) which starts with this plate



eggplant baked with tomato - spinach flan - bread with fonduta - polenta with black truffle sauce

A lovely plate indeed but it was only the start - a few moments later this appeared



roasted yellow capsicum with bagna calda (I absolutely loved this anchovy rich version and probably ate most of it)

They weren't finished - one final dish to complete the set



sausages cooked in barolo - really meaty sausages swimming in a rich sauce.

For mains:



I doubled down on meat and ordered the bistecca - cooked rare as ordered, served with roasted rosemary and garlic potatoes and sweet carrots



Paalo choose the Brasato al Barolo - braised beef in Barolo - just look at the colour of that sauce!

For dessert



Paalo decided on their unusual non-coffee tiramisu - lovely light sponge, rich mascarpone and dark caramel sauce



I had the more traditional bonet - delicious.

Overall, a pretty good dinner - and they also have a well priced wine list. Definitely worth a revisit.
