this was an interesting but really nice dish!! the whipped cream surprisingly gave the pasta a really nice creamy but not overwhelming texture, not gelat at all!! there was also a generous serving of beef cubes which were pretty tender, not hard to chew or anything!! ok there were chunks of garlic in as well but the garlic smell wasnt super strong or anything, but thats ok for me. while the pasta was good, i also ordered the hot chocolate drink (ok because the place was pretty cold lol i just needed a hot drink) and all i can say is that the drink tasted kinda cheap and underwhelming. other than that i’d love to come back and try the other pastas and pizzas!!

A halal italian restaurant with pretty interior situated at Waterloo Street.

Had the roasted chicken leg with balsamic glaze, potato gratin and rosemary jus at $28. The chicken was cooked to perfection, but the star of the dish was the potato gratin! It was cheesy, luxurious and thoroughly indulgent... you gotta try it to believe it!

📍Mad for Garlic @ Suntec City

Ambience: 9/10 ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️ 🤍
Flavor: 8/10 ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️ 🤍
Service: 9/10 ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🤍
Overall: 26/30 ❤️❤️❤️❤️🤍

Last night, I visited Mad for Garlic, a unique restaurant that serves garlic-infused Italian dishes, but with a Korean twist. It is located at Suntec City West Wing, #02-300/301.

I ordered (1) Triple Garlic Seafood Pasta (S$25), (2) Garlic Snowing Pizza (S$27), (3) Grilled Chicken & Mushroom Risotto (S$25), (4) Red Berry Wine Cooler (S$8), and (5) White Berry Wine Cooler (S$8).

The Triple Garlic Seafood Pasta was absolutely the highlight of the night. It was topped with fresh mussel, squid, shrimp, and baby octopus, which provided a hint of the flavours of the sea. While the seafood was good on its own, when combined with the al dente spaghetti coated with red chili pepper sauce and an adequate ratio of garlic sprout, it created a perfect savoury pasta with a kick of spice. It was a satisfying blend of flavour that did not have either the garlic or the chili feels too overwhelming.

Their signature Garlic Snowing Pizza was a solid dish as well. It is a thin crust pizza filled with sweet white sauce that really hits you with a burst of flavour as you move towards the crust. It is also topped with fried garlic, shrimp, pineapple dice, and tableside-grated cheese. It has no doubt lived up to its name of “Garlic Snowing Pizza”.

Unfortunately, the Grilled Chicken & Mushroom Risotto was a disappointment. The risotto itself wasn’t bad, but the grilled chicken felt like it did not belong to the dish at all. By itself, it tasted dry and bland. Even when it was eaten together with the risotto, not only did it not elevate the dish, but the toughness of the meat also almost made it a chore to eat a spoonful of the dish. Perhaps it would have been better if the dish was kept as a Mushroom Risotto without the Grilled Chicken.

As for the Red Berry Wine Cooler and White Berry Wine Cooler, at just S$8 per cup, they were perfect complements to every single dish that I’ve mentioned above.

For that, I give Singapore’s Mad for Garlic an 8/10 for Flavour and 9/10 for Service because the tableside grating of cheese was a very nice addition to the dish that elevated my expectations of the pizza.

On the aspect of Ambience, I truly fancied the colour theme of the restaurant, as the deep brown coloured (almost black) brick walls luminated by the white light brought about a very calm and relaxing vibe to the restaurant. No doubt a good environment to be at if you are looking to chill and catch up with your friends.

For that, I give Singapore’s Mad for Garlic a 9/10 for Ambience.

Overall, Mad for Garlic at Suntec City scored a 26/30 after combining the scores for Ambience, Flavour, and Service. To summarize, despite being Garlic themed, you do not need to worry about neither the flavour nor smell of the Garlic being too overwhelming, as the garlic are infused into their dishes. Do give it a try if you are looking for a unique concept of eating garlic-infused Italian dish but with a Korean twist!

Prawn Aglio Olio ($16.90), BYO Pink Sauce w/ Mushrooms ($12.40), Royal Ragu ($14.40). Taste-wise was alright, but the pasta was slightly overcooked and royal Ragu had some strange hard grits in it. Portion was also small for its price.

With 20% off, their pizza is $19.80 (up $22).
Honestly the pizza is pretty good and the cheese was a good combination with their tomato base.
9/10

Started off our meal with Lemon Bitter ($15) and Smoked Negroni ($18). Waitstaff were very friendly and welcoming. Space might be abit small and I could see some tables so close to one another, would think that it'll be awkward for dates.

Pretty hefty price for beef Bolognese pasta, but this didn't really deliver in my opinion. Sauce was rich, bordering on overly salty. I know alot of effort goes into stewing the beef sauce, but overall felt like a miss. Smoked Burrata was interesting, but perhaps we should've tried it on a simple salad for the depth of flavour to shine through better.

First time I've had this dish and the closest I can describe this is 'lasagna, but eggplant' - loved it! Eggplant was creamy and still retained its distinct eggplant taste amidst the (wonderfully creamy) tomato sauce. Scraped the sauce clean.

Great rendition of a staple Burrata salad, one can never go wrong with rocket salad topped with tomatoes and olives, with fresh and creamy Burrata, and balsamic dressing bringing everything together into a perfect harmony.

BEST EATEN COLD !!!

i would say their desserts and sides beats their mains hands down. love that this tiramisu has pistachio in it. the pistachio came in a form
of a paste that is layered above the lady’s fingers. when eaten together, i feel that the coffee overpowers the pistachio taste so i ate it separately. the cream was also pretty light
