We-feel-like-italians-day meals@Tosca, Doubletree Hilton

Today, we dine as italians.

Today, we want all things carb.

A wide array of freshly toasted bread as appetizers. Mini ciabattas, breadsticks, crispbread all warmly served. Seriously, we could eat this and skip the mains. I was tempted for the second piece but painfully resisted.

Pizza was hugeeeeee. Might i say. The toppings were a little insincere but its light yet fluffy thin dough layer made up for its overall taste. Though it looked huge, we all agreed if we were starving we might just be able to finish the entire pizza, ALONE. This chicken pizza total damage: RM 34. Advisable to share for smaller eaters.

Pasta: for one who constantly cooks, sometimes i can’t tell why pastas cost so much. Ive yet to crave any pasta, except the duck confit pasta from Ben’s. This pasta was a very simple pasta, nothing much to shout about. I think it was tagged around rm30.

Nice view though, by the pool and the hotel was nicely structured which allowed this open space to have breeze blowing in constantly. It would be nice to have a romantic dinner here.


Putanesca Pizza@Sure PIzza, Plaza Damas

Demona: Sure Pizza was one of the few pizza places which Dogma and I frequent since it’s just opposite my place and the pizzas are pretty good. You could really get the cozy, homely comfort feel when you step into the restaurant. The owner, who’s an Italian is usually at the restaurant, either busy making culinary magic behind the kitchen bar or at the table entertaining his regular patrons.

We wanted a meaty and cheesy dinner snack, and decided to pop by Sure Pizza after a workout. This time, I chose the Putanesca: salami, cheese, onions firewood baked till it’s golden brown.

Our past pizza experiences were pretty fantastic, fiery too! (their side home made sauces can truly burn.. even chilli-resistant Malaysian tongues!). However, this time around, the experience was a little disappointing.

The toppings seemed much less this time around. By the 2nd piece, my mood ran out and Dogma’s mood ran out too after his 3rd piece. We had to “tapao” for the first time ever.

Maybe after this incident, it may be awhile before we catch back the feeling of eating there again.
