I have a crazy affair with tea. Crazy enough to like them when they are warm or cold, sweet or unsweetened. I would have them with condensed milk, evaporated milk, fruits, flowers and even pudding. The only thing I don’t think they go well with is the chewy pearls from bubble tea. I love the strong aroma of hot chinese tea that doesn’t require sugar to enhance its taste. The musty taste of thai ice tea is so awesome when it is served with crushed ice. I enjoy Japanese macha tea in all solid to liquid state – cake, ice cream, frappe, mochi and the list goes on. Lemon tea is oh so wonderful when it’s homemade and you can pour in just the amount of sugar syrup you want. Tea is just my cup of tea!
Decided to try Skinny Pizza at Raffles City shopping mall when I met up with my friends who used to interned with me at a media production (mad)house. We were quite enthusiastic when we ordered The Famous Tiffin Punch, but it wasn’t as great as we thought it would be. The only thing special about the $60 bombay sapphire gin, lychee liquer, pressed grapefruit, ginger and Mumm champage mix was that it was served in a tiffin carrier. Beyond that it tasted pretty much like an average cocktail.
The pizzas were quite delightful though. The wild mushroom truffle pizza and squid ink pizza had their unique taste on the crispy crust, but the portions were too small. A meal just isn’t satisfying when it doesn’t fill up our stomach. Y’know I am quite puzzled why the waitress told us that it is 1.5 person portion per pizza.
Now for my dish, I ordered the old-fashion american sliders because I knew the pizzas weren’t going to be enough for me. I know I shouldn’t expect much out of them because it is a pizza place but I was pretty unhappy with the sliders. Did I make all the wrong food choices that day that they turn out to be at their worst state?
1) The well done beef was too dry, tough and plain.
2) The sautéed mushrooms and onions is probably the worst out of the five choices.. It didn’t add much taste to the beef and there were too many raw onions for my liking
3) The fries were greasy and if you know me well enough, you would know that I’m not health conscious. It takes quite a bit of oil to bother me
