I went out with a couple of friends yesterday to finally watch the newest “Transformers” movie. We had some time to kill so my friends decided they wanted to grab a slice of pizza – which eventually evolved to full blown Italian indulgence.
We ordered three dishes: Wagyu Beef & Prawn Pizza ($158), Beef Ragout Rigatoni ($148), Mushroom Risotto ($138) which totals to about 380 (+10%) – which is not too expensive by any means (especially considering their lunch set menu has an app, entree and dessert all for around $140). This was my second time here and it felt more and more like a family restaurant, complete with a group of screaming kids.
The pizza had a great, crisp base but was topped with unconventional pairings such as steak, prawns and roasted capiscum. The mayonnaise was an even stranger touch that completely lost me (but I was pretty much alone in that criticism); the mushroom risotto was cooked perfectly but had just a tad too much white truffle oil.
My favourite dish by far was the rigatoni, for its deep sensuous flavours and heartiness. However I do think the cherry tomatoes were a little fresh and didn’t feel completely harmonious with the dish.
