Peperoni Pizzeria

Peperoni Pizzeria

Peperoni Pizzeria on a Friday evening! It is always good to make reservations at Peperoni as this place is totally packed on evenings.

4 Formaggi and Prosciutto & Funghi - Family Pizza/XXL 21 inches

4 Formaggi and Prosciutto & Funghi - Family Pizza/XXL 21 inches

4 Formaggi (Mozza, taleggio, scamorza and gorgonzola) and Prosciutto (ham) & Funghi (mushrooms) in the largest pizza size! 21 inches! Double Extra Large!! The previous time saw 3 younger versions of us struggling to finish the 21 inches pizza. This time round, we had a party of 6 to share the pizza (and hence more room to try other main courses and appetizers!). The family sized pizza looked majestic, impressive and very appetizing. The base crust was thin, with the edges being very crispy. Taste wise, the 4 Formaggi was more savoury, cheesy and less dry. The Prosciutto & Funghi was not too bad as well, but as we are avid cheese lovers, we tended to enjoy the 4 Formaggi more.

Oven-baked Eggplant

Oven-baked Eggplant

Oven-baked Eggplant – with tomato and mozzarella, parmigiana style. The Oven-baked Eggplant was rather soft and mushy. It wasn’t flavourful enough. The eggplant itself was pretty tasteless, the accompanying tomato sauces wasn’t strong as well, the dish could also do with a larger proportion of cheese.

Portobello Mushroom

Portobello Mushroom

Portobello Mushroom – Fried portobello with chicken and red wine. We believed that the inner portion of the portobello mushrooms were coated with mashed potatoes and then deep fried. With its crispy texture and soft inner core, the savoury  Portobello Mushroom was a crowd favourite! The chicken piece however, were rather tasteless and there was an obvious lacking in red wine.

Mixed Seafood Risotto

Mixed Seafood Risotto

Mixed Seafood Risotto – Mixed seafood cooked in rich prawn stock. It was indeed rich prawn stock as the risotto had a very strong seafood taste. In fact, just take a whiff at the dish and you’ll feel like you’re just by the sea. But no worries, the risotto wasn’t overly fishy. In fact, the savoury cheese and tomato based sauce complemented the seafood well. There were pieces of squid, prawns and scallops inside. The scallops were rather mushy though. Each grain of rice was firm but not hard, and had thoroughly soaked up the flavours of the seafood, tomatoes and cheese. This is one of the better risottos we have tried.

Chicken wings 8pcs

Chicken wings 8pcs

Chicken wings (8pcs) was a last minute order. The chicken drumlets/wings were on the spicy side. The batter was slightly different from elsewhere in that it had been mixed with some chopped leaves and spices to give it additional fragrance. The skin was crispy, with tender chicken meat beneath. Nevertheless, nothing too fantastic about it. One thing they could improve was the accompanying mayo dip. The chicken wings were on the oily side,  mayonnaise is typically oily too, hence it felt overly oily. Perhaps a sour refreshing dip would be more appropriate.

Tiramisu

Tiramisu

Tiramisu – Savoiyard biscuits, coffee and mascarpone. Sadly, the Tiramisu failed to impress us. The liqueur taste was sorely missing and hence compared to Italiannies, the Tiramisu, which was rather mild in flavour, paled in comparison. There was also barely any mascapone cheese taste, instead it tasted very rich in cream.

Though Peperoni Pizzeria was packed to the brim on a Friday night, the waiting staff were still rather attentive to us. They readily topped up our ice waters and cleared our plates. They were friendly, always with their bright smiles and made the entire meal an enjoyable one.
