sorry folks ... this is gonna be another food blog ... been receiving some remarks that donutland is al'bout food (especially the HK posts) ... oh well ... here i go again ... yet on another food rampage ...

i was hoping to lose the weight that i put on in HK when i got back to Singapore ... but alas ... been pigging out on good food AGAIN!!!

been having lots of Italian food this weekend ... had dinner at Al Dente @ Holland Village on Saturday night ... loved the mussels + bread soaked in gravy (yum! i miss the one at Brewerkz) ... plus the proscuitto pizza (i.e. parma ham + rocket salad) was great! (it's my all time favourite!!! Aragosta pasta (i.e lobster + mushroom) in cream sauce was very very delicious too :)

on Sunday night, decided to try Peperoni Pizzeria @ Greenwood Avenue after hearing reviews about the infamous 21 inch pizza where you can select 4 different types of pizza ... caught a glimpse of the gigantic pizza when we were seated ... and it was HUGE!!! apparently if you do a take-away, the pizza will take up the entire space at the back seat ...

since it was just the 3 of us, we settled for the 14 inch pizza instead ... half Hawaiian + half proscuitto ... hmm, i think the Al Dente one was better though ... but nothing can beat Valentino's version ... hmm, think i have been raving a lot about Valentino ... can't get it out of my system that the pasta/pizza is To-Die-For ...

as for the other dishes ... calamari with thinly sliced onions was good ... pasta arrabiata was good too except that it was a tad too spicy ...

oh yes, in order to curb requests for free water (yea, you know how cheap we can be :P) the restaurant has come up with a clever tactic ...

water ain't free ... in fact ... it's horribly expensive!!!

ice-water costs S$200!!! (S$150 during happy hour)

requests for extra ice will set you back an additional S$150 or S$100 during happy hour

think you can get away by asking for hot/warm water? no way man ... it costs S$200 as well ... with no happy hour promos ...

so, the sublimal message is ... just order a goddam drink!!!

and so i got my usual fix of Hoegaarden :)
