Pizza Uno - Centre Point

I dig this place. Though I’ve received mixed responses, I have to admit that my previous visits to this place have been nice. This time around, I came here for a light bite with some friends and this kid. He’s one active kid with potential in the showbiz, especially those HK undercover cops vs mafia movies.
Like many other pizzerias, many have accused this place of being too Malaysian. Of late, pizzas and pasta from these restaurants are often too spicy, too strong in flavour and ultimately losing the Italian heritage the food is supposed to carry. For instance, some carbonara pastas are just too chessy and creamy leaving you with a gigantic thirst to quench.

The first order was an antipasto - the deep fried mushrooms, a regular with many of its frequent customers, possibly owing to its crispy batter and juicy mushrooms, served with mayo, a slice of lemon and salad. For RM 14.00 I’d say it’s worth price, but just don’t finish the whole plate, it’s pretty filling. Here it is:
We had another mushroom entry, called simply the mushroom soup. This one’s another favourite of mine, provided that I’m really hungry. Why? The mushroom soup here is super thick and creamy, perfect for those like me who grew up with Campbell’s infamous range of soups. Really 'kau'!
Price: RM 9 – A BIG “Go for it!”

Next up, Garlic Prawn Spaghetti – served with Pizza Uno’s exclusive garlic gravy, big juicy and succulent prawns and a slice of lemon. I’ve had this dish a couple of times before but it seems a bit too salty this time. Get it right, and this dish will reward you with its balanced texture, aromatic gravy and tender-spongy bites…. Every bite.
Price: RM 26.00 – a bit too expensive.
The Ice Lemon Tea is well, just like what you’d expect, but the following picture is the Iced Coffee with Chocolate. For calorie seekers, this is your cup of tea… coffee actually. The only other drink thicker than this would be Souled Out’s Haagen Dazs Milk Shake. Glazed with chocolate syrup this drink is superbly enjoyable, so long as your other half is fine with it. Otherwise, call me for a stealth convoy to Pizza Uno for this.
Price: Ice Lemon Tea – RM 4.50
Ice Coffee – RM 16.00
My Tummy rating: 8.6/10

Mmm...I remember they were short handed the last time I went there. Waited so long for the food to be served! But food is pretty good.
