S$10 Pizza Mondays at Al Dente Pronto
This was a completely unplanned trip (1 Kim Seng Promenade #02-K2, 6734-7334). I just happened to be heading upstairs at Great World City when I noticed a sign advertising "Pizza Mondays" featuring any pizza for just S$10 (US$6.70). Making the most of it, I grabbed one of the most expensive items available, the namesake Al Dente pizza.
Why was this thing normally priced at S$28 (US$18.70)? Maybe it was the truffle oil. Or the burrata, parma ham, and rucola. It all sounded nice, looked nice, and smelled nice (think: truffle oil), but I felt a bit sick in the end. It was actually *too* rich - so much that I had to dump a ton of chili pepper flakes on it just to cut through it all.
Most importantly, I really didn't like the crust. Yes, it was thin, but it was also very dense. It looks like I had the same impression of their pizzas a couple of years ago so I guess they haven't changed the recipe. Well, if you like this kind of dough, then S$10 Pizza Mondays is quite a steal. But I prefer something lighter.
