Went to Pepperoni's for dinner one Saturday evening and the place was easily 80% packed. Luckily we had reserved a table.
The service at the table was good, the waitress was fun loving and gave good suggestion (although none was taken in the end).
I ordered the pizza, a soup of the day and a creamy pasta.
The soup was thick and creamy, I guess it's closer to what locals prefer in a soup rather than real soup (which should be watery, otherwise it's called stew). But the soup went down well.
The pizza was nicely done as it was a cement stove (not that it mattered) and would have preferred more cheese but the amount is sufficient. The crust was thin and a bit expensive compared to other pizzeria but was OK.
The pasta was creamy and al dente so no complains there.
The toilet is nicely decorated but be warned it's a unisex toilet (male and female side by side with little more than a partition seperating the thrones). The al fresco is nice but I guess it's mostly for the sports freak who would have a few beers there with mates on game nights.
The table is covered with paper so children can use the crayons to draw on it. Nice BUT would be good if they provided wet napkins or a bowl of lemon water to wash the kids' hands before the food arrives. Good hygiene, people, good hygiene!
All in all, it was a neat little place to have dinner. Parking, however, is a nightmare.
Was in the mood for some thin crust pizza so the glutton in me opted for Peperoni Pizzeria, which is owned and operated by fine dining chain Les Amis and boasts a never seen elsewhere in Singapore XXXL family size pizza, measuring 21 inches in diameter. Compare that with the 12-14 inches that is offered by other pizza joints and Peperoni easily takes the cake in terms of size.
Located in the upmarket and reclusive residential enclave of Greenwood Ave, Peperoni Pizzeria sits along a row of tiny shophouses that play host to various renowned F&B establishments such as Punggol Seafood, Lana, Greenwood Fish Market, just to name a few. The air conditioned area exudes a nice warmth through the use of pastel colours and various artworks by professional artists and school children alike. You can even follow the process of your pizza being made and then baked in the oven. There is also a small al fresco area behind which is reminiscent of a mini courtyard, complete with vines. If you need a pass time while waiting for your food or an aspiring artist, just ask for crayons and you can doodle on the paper tablecloths.
XXXL Pizza - If you order the large pizza (12 inches) and above, you can request to split your pizza into 2 totally different flavours, which allows for more variety. We had the Hawaii (tomato sauce, mozzarella, pineapple, cooked ham, bell peppers) and the Suprema (tomato sauce, mozzarella, shitake mushroom, chicken, sausage, onions and red chilli). The pizza crust was relatively thin but a tad too burnt along the edges. The base did seem a little too soggy from all the sauces as well. Ingredients didn't come across as plentiful but adequate nevertheless. Personally I thought that the Hawaii portion tasted better as it came across as more flavourful then that of the Suprema.
Creme Brulee - Ending our high carbohydrate meal on a sweet note was the creme brulee, which was quite good but certainly not the best I've had. Made from real vanilla beans, the pudding wasn't too sweet but the overly soft texture didn't exactly sit well with me. The sugar layer was thin and broke easily under pressure. Peperoni's rendition is comparable to the one at FRE(N)SH, just 1.5 times the size and double the price.
A lunch of gigantic proportions set the 2 of us back by about $55, which is still reasonable considering that the amount of food could have fed at least 3 people. In case you are wondering, no, we didn't finish the food. I surrendered at the halfway mark while my gf ate a quarter of it. The remaining quarter was doggy bagged. Service was slow and spotty and it was quite difficult to catch the wait staff's attention at times. They weren't rude or anything, probably just inattentive or not around.
