Pizzeria Giardino

18 October 2009


This was a recommendation by a friend of mine (Thanks Shereen!) and as she said it would be, it's a pretty little place located at Chijmes. It's al fresco dining here, so humidity can be a concern on some nights. Advice from a friend: get an ice cold beer!

Fruitti Di Mare Pizza: 3.75/5


Seafood pizza! It's one of the few pizza choices for me because most of the pizzas here have either ham or bacon on them. The pizza is alright, its of a thinner crust and the cheese is quite good. It would be better if there was a bit more of the ingredients, and if they could be distributed more evenly. One of the two slices I had only had one prawn and a piece of squid! If you're interested in seafood pizzas, may I suggest the pizza from Timbre as well, I like that one the most!

Prosciutto di Parma Pizza


All of us stared at this when it arrived. I don't think it takes much effort to prepare this pizza surely! Just get the base done, smoke the ham, place it on top and finish it with a promising-sounding Italian name - Prosciutto di Parma.

Chocolate Tortino: 4.25/5


The highlight of the night. We were about to leave when I decided to order this. I'm that desperate for all things sweet to keep my spirits up. And why, this got everyone's spirits up, it was really good! Yeah, everyone was looking at it with a smile and when I gave the green light they all went after it with glee :)

Just imagine the tastes and textures:

Outer cake: A bit firm to touch (because it's oven-baked)
Inner cake: Soft and spongy, but rich with chocolate
Chocolate lava: Warm, fluid and delicious
Ice-cream: Simple vanilla, smooth and cold
Butter cracker: Buttery and crunchy

Now you know why we love it so much! :)

Service
Very good.

The chocolate tortina looks good. Is there any pizza heavy in cheese?

Heavy in cheese? Hmm, not sure if you mean the pizzas with ONLY cheese. if so i won't really know.

but if you mean those pizzas with ingredients and those that are thicker, then you could try The Pizza Place at Raffles City! It's in my blog too, very long ago though. Shop is still there! :)

Dude, Prosciutto di Parma is really expensive wafer thin ham that is prepared in a special way. It's normally called Parma Ham.

Having 5 Slices of that on your pizza is already a good $10.

Ah, indeed we were thinking there could have been more to its preparation. Nevertheless, it was just pizza and ham - received just fine by those who ate it.
