PizItalia, Spicy Hot Singapore Chilli Crabs with an Italian Touch!

Travelling all the way to East Coast Seafood Centre can only mean one of a few things. Huge Crabs, Live Fish, Fresh Clams, and that coastal scenery as the ships move by. But come this year, a new restaurant has sprouted up serving a slight twist in the local seafood delight together with the flavours and culinary expertise from Italy – PizItalia.

Serving with a tagline of “Seafood – Pizza – Pasta”, PizItalia although an Italian restaurant at heart believes it can whip up tantalizing local seafood dishes together with an assortment of Italian herbs and spices. With two dedicated kitchens behind, one for Italian cuisine and the other for the local seafood dishes, PizItalia is set to cater to a wider range of guests. Imagine having Spicy finger-licking good Chilli Crab, and finishing the meal with a sweet slightly alcoholic delight of a Tiramisu. And for the best part, the restaurant is child friendly with a dedicated shop space and staff to look after your kids as the adults tuck in to a romantic seafood dinner by the coast.

Katong Jago’s Carrot Cake. Crisp. Fragrant. Delish!

IMG_3032

Okay, I got to admit that I have not been blogging for nearly a week. While my alter ego a.k.a Mr. Lazy was ruling, my stomach kept reminding me in an Oba-san sort of fashion (nagging) of Katong Jago’s Carrot Cake.

I was on an assignment and one of the pit stops brought me to this coffeeshop. Somehow, nearly every table had a plate of carrot cake, so it had to be good. Right? Its the Singaporean nature to queue, crowd, order everything that is good. And the quirky atmosphere of cramped seats, shimmers of Sunday sunlight peeping through the unfortunately large openings of the striped blue awnings  plus the occasional housefly that takes pride in its flutter from table to table seemingly engages the spirit into the “Master” level – well prepared to enjoy this little red dot’s street side glory in true Singapore fashion.

Cafe Oliv, One Cod Burger, One Lamb Shank – Delight!

31st Oct Cafe Oliv

Mini Cod Burger & Crab Dumplings

Food tasting sessions are probably some of the best dinners ever to have. Not only do you get to eat good food, but you also get to meet fellow foodies congregating together in one packed restaurant where everyone has a common interest one way or another.

Today’s dinner brought me to Cafe Oliv, where the SistaFooD girls hosted their first food tasting gathering. The crowd consisted of close friends, family and also food bloggers such as Brad (LadyIronChef) and Harris (The Simplest Aphrodisiac). For many of us, it was our first time at Cafe Oliv, and many were anticipating to that fine piece of Brownie topped with ice cream which was so much raved about!

Just a note, our dishes are all “tasting portions” so the amount you see is smaller than what you will get if you order it from the menu. Also, many of the dishes are new creations and may not be available currently. So for now, feast your eyes on the gracious delight. Chef and Owner Kelvin was also at hand to serve, cook and explain to us the exquisiteness and style of each dish.

Tender goodness of the Lamb Shank

The most prominent dish of the day would to my opinion be the Lamb Shank. Extremely tender, with the meat oh so crumbly in the mouth. It was tasty yet almost neutral in touch, complementing well with the subtle hint of lamb that shrieks delight when the thin layer of fat hits the tongue. The best part? Pair each slice of meat with the thick mushroom infused sauce to reveal a savoury and delightful combination!

$18.90 grabs you a huge chunk with the bone on it and a dallop of smooth mashed potatoes.
