Cugini Italian Restaurant: Unbridled Italian Passion
Sardinian Style Spaghetti with olive oil, mullet roe, chili, garlic and Mediterranean prawns $22++ There is only really one ingredient that you need for really great food, and that is passion.

Pizza Prata $6 It was bound to happen sooner or later. We already have cheese prata, so it doesn’t really take much more effort to add tomato paste and a few capsicums to turn that into a Pizza Prata. In theory that should work quite well. But I think the problem is that perhaps the […]
Ristorante De Parma: Tell me, Hungry Really Go Where?
Pizza Bianca $24.90 12 inch (Pizza Night every Tuesday, 10 inch pizza $12.90) Now, I am sure everyone here knows about the Hungrygowhere website right?

Pietrasanta: Place for a nice laid back Sunday Lunch

Call […]
Laksa Sphaghetti $12.90++ I am a little apprehensive about reviewing Fusion cuisine because I seldom hear people raving about it. In fact, most of the time people tend to utter phrases like “Fusion Confusion” instead. The thing about Fusion cuisine is that people tend to compare the new dish with the original and if the […]
Finalmente Gastronomia: Another Italian in the Heartlands Story!
There are updates at the end of the blog Ravioli stuffed with Stewed Veal cheek $12 (3 pieces) One of the best things about Bangkok is the number of “Hole in the Wall” type eateries which are opened by Europeans who happen to pass through and decided to stay. These places are often small, rustic […]
La Pizzaiola: Authentic Italian Pizza at HDB prices!
This stall is closed Quattro Formaggio $13.90 for a 12 inch pizza Don’t you think it is a little redundant to label a pizza as “Italian” pizza? Of course, pizza is Italian what, ah boh then? But the fact is that the pizza has evolved into something quite different from its original form such that […]
Sofra Turkish Cafe and Restaurant: At last! A Decent Donar Kebab!
One of the things I must always have whenever I back to my family home in Sydney is to have a Donar Kebab. You can get one at almost every street corner and most of them have quite a decent tasting Donar Kebab. The very very best one I ever had was in a little […]
