Feels like their portions have shrunk a far bit?? 😒 am quite a regular patron at The Coffee Academics but their standards seem to be falling. I used to be a big fan of the pizzas here! The pizza base is still good, with a slather of tomato sauce and rich cheese. This 3 Meats pizza ($24++), however, disappointed in terms of toppings - there is little variety and the portion is measly.

Hopheads is definitely better known for its drinks and games - its menu tries to achieve much, but is priced high and falls a little flat. The meat lovers ($21.90++) features a tomato base topped with pepperoni and sausages, while the garlic seafood ($23.90++) has an olive oil base with shrimp & squid. They were pretty good in terms of flavour, but you probably won’t want to leave them out for too long while playing games! The crust gets really hard.

Cicheti is well known for its wood fire oven, which sits in a corner of the cosy establishment. We ordered the prosciutto e rucola ($28++), which seemed like a popular choice! The pizza base was delightfully crisp at the edges and chewy on the inside, topped with a layer of tomato and fior di latte. The parma ham was well seasoned and complemented by the arugula. This is easily one of the best we’ve had!

Chose this ($24++) after reading the many reviews online, and our server’s recommendation! A chewy base is topped by interesting ingredients like squid, prawns, clams, quail egg and fish cake. The laksa sauce tasted like it, but lacked the depth of flavour or the spicy kick.

Stumbled upon this eatery whilst in the area! Was adventurous and decided to try their Pizza de Grancio ($14.90) - it’s topped with crabmeat and spicy pink sauce with brandy. The sauce was thick but leaned towards the sweet side, and the brandy was barely discernible. But the peppercorns used added a bit of heat and variation! The portion of (real!!) crab meat was super generous and the mozzarella was tied everything together nicely. Service was rather slow for a weekday but I was surprised by the quality of the food and will definitely be back for more!

Sofi Cafe is tucked into a quaint shophouse, filled with homely vibes. We tried the vegeteriana ($23++; zucchini, eggplant, capsicum, mushroom) and parma e rucula ($25++, prosciutto and rocket) and wow!! Loved that the base was doughy but thin, chewy and crispy all at the same time. The tomato base with melted mozzarella was so rich!! The portion of toppings isn’t the most generous, but of quality and paired well. Also tried the homemade mint lemonade ($5.80++) and flat white ($5.20++). The restaurant was quiet early in the evening but filled up quickly after. Service is also top notch and very welcoming :-) a bit of a pity that there are many menu exclusions for the burpple deal, but we enjoyed our meal greatly and will definitely be back for more!!

Tried the Parma ham pizza ($28+) under burpple beyond’s 1 for 1! Found the ham slices on the thicker side (and hence rather salty), but chock full of flavour. The pizza base was also had a good bite and held up well under the generous serving of mozzarella and parmesan cheese!

I can’t tell you for certain which types of cheese they included in this pizza, but boy was this good! The quattro formaggi ($24+) is made from 4 different italian cheeses on a tomato base and topped with basil leaves. Definitely a dirty pizza with the richness of the cheese!

Would have preferred to have one pasta dish, but the restaurant limits the burpple beyond redemption to pizza-only or pasta-only. Turned out that both pizzas we chose were amazing :-) the smoked salmon pizza ($28++) came with thick savoury slices and dollops of sour cream. What really stood out were the small pieces of fried capers, which were a burst of flavour and an interesting addition of texture! The chilli crab pizza ($32++) boasts of homemade sauce, which came close to the real deal with a spicy kick and very generous portions of crab meat.

Was initially hesitant to try out this relatively new restaurant because the options seem quite limited, but the menu is actually very extensive! Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 is applicable to all sections except the appetisers, salads and chefs specials. We tried the highly raved Burrata Pizza ($26++) and the Parma Ham Pizza ($28++) - the dough was light and chewy, and the ingredients of good quality. I particularly liked the subtle taste of herbs! Staff were also very attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back to try more!
