Still one of the favourites at Mia Restaurant, as like their sister restaurant Eleven Strands, the Prawn Pesto Tagliatelle (S$28.00) was hearty delicious, thanks to the fresh homemade pesto sauce, the al dente handmade Tagliatelle (worth the S$3.00 add-on) and the perfectly seared prawns that felt so sensational as I bit into it.

Believe it or not, with the visible granules of pine nuts found in the pesto sauce, I could not help but use my spoon to discreetly scrape the bowl clean.

On the slightly higher end, this Lobster Tail Pasta (S$38.00) was really worth the buck with the assortment of seafood, their in-house Tagliatelle pasta (top-up S$3.00) and a rich lobster bisque sauce, so that every mouthful was like a pleasant reminder that this was a very successfully executed dish.

Although this might not be applicable for Burpple Beyond, trust me that the dish was worth every cent for a lobster enthusiast.

The nice thing about the pizzettes over here was that they were made to 10 inches big and sliced into just 4 parts, and so they said that we could order more to try different flavours.

Just before they updated their menu in October, there was this Cacio e Pepe (S$22.00) which had parmigiana crema, golden garlic chips, lemon zest and black pepper. Simple, but definitely packed with flavour, fragrance and spice.

Tarte Flambée is a specialty of the region of Alsace, Italy, whereby the dough is very thinly rolled and topped with ingredients before being baked. Despite the thinness of the crust and the simplicity of the topping ingredients, they are usually delicious and flavourful.

And so when Mia Restaurant had their Honey Bacon Tarte Flambée (S$22.00) in their menu, I was pleasantly surprised by how crispy the crust was even though there was a good layer of mozzarella cheese covering it. On top of that, the bacon, caramelised onions and drizzled honey was also in a perfect proportion to balance out the sweetness with a touch of savoury delight, great for going around the table or for one person’s indulgence.

I ordered this Prosciutto E Rucola (S$30.00) through the Oddle Eats platform, and this was one of the more satisfying takeaway pizzas to date.

The dough was to my liking: airy and not too dense, with a good balance of crustiness to every bite. It was very nice of them to have packed the arugula and shaved parmigiana separately so that the greens remained raw when served. Apart from the parma ham, another important element was the sauce tub of chilli oil that accompanied the pizza. I’m sure many would agree that one tub was barely enough to go with the pizza, because it could make the already-delicious pizza even more mouth-watering.

Though I absolutely enjoyed their pasta, I found their Mushroom Risotto (S$24.00) equally great. Featuring mixed mushrooms, asparagus, garlic, onions and parsley, this mains packed intense flavours of the shrooms. Given the richness of the stock, it was pretty fortunate that I could finish the plate before it had gotten too “gelak”.

One of the newest creations from Pizza Hut was their San Francisco Sourdough Pizza, using sourdough as the pizza crust.

As advertised, the crust maintained a good crisp on the outside, and with larger air pockets within, even though the insides were not as fluffed up as I would have imagined it to be. However, the sprinkling of the blended bread crumbs (or flour, whichever it was) made the pizza too grainy for my own enjoyment. Perhaps, it was meant to keep the crispiness at its optimum level, but I wouldn’t exactly say that I enjoyed the overall texture. Sadly, the experience was not sufficient to make me want to select this type of crust again, provided that it would stay in the regular menu in a few weeks’ time.

As part of their Asian Palate menu, the Seafood Spaghettini “Mee Goreng” (S$24.00) was done dry, Singapore-style with distinct ketchup flavour.

Stir-fried with their fried octopus, fried white fish fillet and tiger prawns, I felt that this mains was actually fairly decent to try. Even though they had chosen pasta as a substitute for noodles, the doneness of the spaghettini was quite balanced with the dry cooking, though it might also be an added bonus if it could be served with more eggs fried in.

Exclusively available in conjunction in this year’s World Pasta Day, Eleven Strands was game in selling pasta kits for pasta lovers to bring the flavours home for consumption within a one-month shelf life.

Their pesto sauce tasted similar to what one would be able to get from the restaurant, with rich flavours of olive oil, garlic, fresh basil leaves and pine nuts exuding from the sauce. In the meantime, the pre-cooked linguine could be heated up in a pot of boiling water, so everything could be served up within minutes. I would say that the freshness of the sauce would justify for this Pasta Kit to cost S$15.00. (Note: Grilled salmon fillet prepared separately.)

While the offer only lasted for three days, I might seriously consider getting the pasta kit again when they would sell this again, should I want to have freshly-cooked pasta at home.

There was no doubt that the Prawn Basil Pesto Pasta (S$24.00) was a hit here. Creamy and fragrant pesto sauce was further thickened with grated Parmigano-Reggiano cheese to add an extra dimension of flavours to their freshly-made tagliatelle pasta (additional S$3.00) to perfect the meal.

One thing for sure, was that the pasta must be eaten freshly served, to have that piping hot satisfaction while slurping every strand of pasta. In fact, I wished that I would lick the remaining sauce off the plate, because it was that delicious!

Past the Happy Hour, Beer Basket was still bustling with activities. Customers were indulging in the restaurant’s selection of craft beer and alcohol, and it was nice for the restaurant to also offer bar bites and some mains, so there’s always something to go with the beverages at different times of the day.

Their Beef Meatballs Bolognese (S$18.00) was one of the items that would be eligible for Burpple Beyond deals. Using their hand-made beef meatballs, the proteins might not be very big, but was reasonably seasoned yet had a bit of springiness to it. The bolognese was generously coating their linguine, which helped to keep the strands slightly wet, but thank goodness I did not have tomato sauce stains on my shirt after that.

“Sweet Dreams are made of cheese.”

If one can’t decide to order a dessert or more pizza, I would really recommend to order the Sweet Dreams (S$26.00), which included mozzarella, blue cheese, parmesan and ricotta on their awesome pizza base, before drizzled with honey.

Though it might be a tad sweet, I would say that it was also able to play down the taste of blue cheese which some might feel repulsive towards. Perhaps one might not be worthy to be called a “cheese lover” if he did not order this pizza?
