First time eating gnocchi. Not filling.

At first it was just ok but as you eat on, it grows on you - earthy n vinegarish flavour. Very unique taste and I couldn’t stop after that! Yummy! Wished the portion was larger for the price.

This was very yummy, agreed by the whole family of 5! 👍👍👍👍👍 Wished the portion was larger for the price.

The newly-opened halal Tipo Gnocchi in Kampong Glam specializes in the Italian dumpling, gnocchi. You can either order the house specials or create your own gnocchi masterpiece.

Tipo should not be an unfamiliar brand name to those who have been following the happenings or the local F&B scene — a concept by the same folks behind The Black Hole Group whom have brought to us multiple other concepts such as Working Title, The Great Mischief, Stack, Afterwit Bar de Burrito, The Mad Sailors and Éla, Tipo had first started out as Tipo Pasta Bar, having an emphasis on handmade pasta before branching out it’s operations further into three other concepts — Tipo Pizzeria e Trattoria (at Stanford Arts Centre), Tipo Strada (at Royal Square @ Novena), and It’s latest concept, Tipo Gnocchi. With Tipo Pasta Bar having shifted its operations from the initial location at 785 North Bridge Road to the nearby Aliwal Arts Centre, the former location of Tipo Pasta Bar has been transformed into Tipo Gnocchi after a slight revamp. The layout of the space at 785 North Bridge Road still remains the same after being the location of Tipo Gnocchi; the same showcase at the front of the premises which used to display the various handmade pasta that is left to dry is now the spot which they display the little pillows of potato and flour — the positioning of the counters and tables also have largely remained the same as it was previously when the space was still Tipo Pasta Bar. A fresh paint job has been given to the facade of the shophouse; now sporting an orange paint scheme instead of the pastel blue and pink that it was previously. Carrying on the success of Tipo Pasta Bar, Tipo Gnocchi’s menu does seem to be segregated in a manner similar to that of Tipo Pasta Bar — whilst patron’s are able to order the various Gnocchi dishes from the Gnocchi House Specials where all the elements have been pre-determined, those who wish to have the Gnocchi best tuned to their tastebuds can also go for the Build Your Own Gnocchi section and select the sauces, toppings and sizing to their desire. Apart from Gnocchi dishes, Tipo Gnocchi also serves up a limited variety of appetisers and desserts as well.

Being pretty much the highlight of Tipo Gnocchi, the only option of mains at Tipo Gnocchi would be the various Gnocchi dishes and the Build Your Own Gnocchi that they have to offer. Our choice of the Gnocchi dish to go for after skimming through the menu would be the Chicken Pepper Gnocchi, which is described on the menu to come with elements such as creamy pepper sauce, chicken meatballs, Kalamata olives with chilli and shaven Grana Padano. There was a choice for us to upsize the dish which sees the portion of the Gnocchi served from 180g to 230g, though we decided to forgo the option to upsize nonetheless. Digging into the dish, we note how the gnocchi here does seem a little lighter in terms of density; the little nuggets of flour and potato were pillowy soft — quite a decent texture that made it easy to eat though we would really prefer the Gnocchi to come with a good chew and a bite. Pairing it up with the creamy pepper sauce, the “pepper” mentioned in the description actually refers to that of bell pepper; the sauce was pretty tangy and zippy without being spicy in any way — the cream providing the sauce with a richness that further enhances the flavours of the bell peppers which are being used. The chicken meatballs do seem like they are handmade; lovingly shaped by hand m considering the inconsistent look that each meatball carries — these were sufficiently meaty and provides a juicy bite, and we liked how the chicken meatballs were just so soft to the bite with the texture being fairly consistent to that of the gnocchi itself. Whilst some may not be fans of olives and may end up skipping on the Kalamata Olives which were included in the dish, we found the addition of olives here providing yet another dimension to the dish; seemingly bringing the meat, gnocchi and the sauce altogether.

Being one of the better know casual dining concepts within the Muslim community, Tipo Pasta Bar had certainly come a long way ever since its inception. Having started off as a concept that rode on the wave of serving up fresh, handmade pasta to the masses, Tipo has since managed to garner a following — the opening of the various Tipo-branded concepts is also a strong indicator of its popularity, with Tipo also serving up other dishes such as pizzas and mains as well. Tipo Gnocchi is a further extension to the Tipo brand; again adopting the similar approach where there are House Specials where patrons can either opt for a fuss-free experience by going for their dishes featuring fixed sauce and topping options that have already been pre-determined, or to Build Your Own Gnocchi with the flexibility of going for whichever sauce and topping that one desires. The food at Tipo Gnocchi also carries that same quality which one would expect out of Tipo Pasta Bar — one that fits in well with the price tag and is slightly above and beyond the sort of establishment that it is. We wouldn’t really say that Tipo Gnocchi is a go-to spot for gnocchi; there are definitely other establishments that serve better gnocchi dishes around, but Tipo Gnocchi is a great spot to fix those cravings for gnocchi — perhaps also somewhere worth considering to bring others to for those whom have not had their first gnocchi experience yet for an introductory meal to the dish.
