Random food notes

The Goonfather complained that my recent post about The Pizza Place gave him a monster craving, so he dragged a whole bunch of us there again tonight.

The Chicken Royale is still as yummy as ever.

We also discovered that the Double Cheeseburger is to die for.

It tastes just like a cheeseburger with the added bonuses of being awfully juicy and having a sweet tang.

We almost died eating all the food, though. Between eight of us, we scarfed down three large pizzas, two plates of pasta and one big snack combo platter.

Look at this:

What can you observe from the picture?

That’s right. The unwritten law of food etiquette: No one should take the last piece of anything until it’s been sitting there for more than half an hour untouched.

And another bit of useless random info: Don’t eat the pizza crust so you can pack in more of the yummy insides.

Oh, were the insides yummy, indeed. There were many happy faces tonight!

It’s been five hours since we ate and I’m still feeling full.

Oozing with cream

I have a huge craving for pizza.

Ever since I ate at The Pizza Place more than a month ago, I’ve been wanting to go back there.

To think this outlet has been in Raffles City Shopping Centre forever but I’ve never tried it. I’ve walked past it a zillion times but I always choose someplace else to eat.

Well, the outside really looks quite unassuming and never attracted me to walk in.

The inside looks a bit more declicious.

But photos can be deceiving.

Anyway, I had the opportunity to finally try it because the Goonfather recently got to know the owner, who is part of his RX8 Club.

Gabriel entertained us with a show of dough spinning and flipping while making our pizza. He was really good at it!

We ordered a mixed pizza — half Chicken Royale and half The Carnivore.

OMG the Chicken Royale was really good. It’s what I’ve been craving the past weeks.

Chicken Royale ingredients: Creamy sauce, chicken, onions, green capsicum, pineapples, mozzarella, cheddar.

The creamy sauce just kills me.

The other half didn’t impress me too much because it has some bits of minced meat in it and I don’t really like minced meat.

The Carnivore ingredients: BBQ sauce, chicken, ground beef, beef bacon, turkey ham, beef pepperoni, prawns, squid, mozzarella.

But Ben (in green) liked it very much and, in fact, preferred it to the chicken.

Chef Gabriel took turns to have a picture with us.

Too bad he wasn’t wearing a chef’s uniform or he’d look like his logo!

The Pizza Place is at Raffles City Shopping Centre, The Raffles Marketplace, #B1-16.

And, no, this isn’t an advertorial. We didn’t even get free pizza lah.
