I have heard of this place for quite some time. Its run by the folks at STRIP who provide waxing services. (brazilian wax anyone ?) STRIP runs really weird ads...you might have seen the one with hairy orang utans jumping into the water.
Skinny Pizza is quite near Balaclava and relatively easy to spot once you walk into the main entrance of Suntec City. The setting is casual yet eclectic with bohemian jazz playing in the background. My colleague and I chose a cosy corner alongside the wall with huge cushy armchairs and ordered the set lunch for 2, which, at 32 bucks gets us 2 non alcoholic drinks, 1 skinny plizza, 1 truffle fries and 2 soups.
1) Drinks- Passable...fizzy sodas which come in a variety of flavors. I chose root beer while my colleague chose a citrus flavor. i think hers was nicer.
2) Soup- We both chose the truffle mushroom soup. Strangely, my colleague found hers too salty whereas I found mine rather bland. It was nonetheless a hearty starter.
3) Truffle Fries...def the star but I didn't taste any truffles?! The shoestring fries come in a small basket. They taste exceptionally good when eaten hot and go well with cheapo chilli sauce
4) Pizza- The supposed "star" turned out OK only. It didn't blow me away but at least it tasted exactly how it looked- a giant papadum smothered with atas toppings. The choice of toppings is actually pretty extensive (and exotic...anyone keen on ratoutuille topping?) Being the boring people that we are, my colleague and I opted for a relatively safe option of macademia nut with roasted pumpkin. I enjoyed the combination of sundried tomatoes, cheese, macademia nuts and rocket leaves and roasted pumpkin. However, after awhile, it got really messy and I gave up eating altogether.
Looks yummy doesn't it? Well, eating is believing!
Here's a hilarious review of the place written by a disgruntled diner from one of the local food forums. I can't help smiling everytime I read it. =)
|fancy a gym workout for your jaw? want to lose some fats on your face to celebrate cny? visit skinny pizza if so. |
after being beaten flat by votes, i found myself very reluctantly at skinny pizza- spa esprit's latest 'slaughter-house' for hungry people like me. having had very bad experiences at HOUSE, i have been resolute enough to not let them earn a single cent from me. but i suppose, i can't fight the forces so i must follow and burn some money, at times.
