My atas neighbor has been raving about the ‘Garlic Snowing Pizza’ at Mad For Garlic for the longest time ever, and I finally got to dine at the restaurant at Suntec City today, and I suppose I managed to figure out what the fuss is all about. While we were there, we also got to try the pasta and rice dishes, and I have to say she was right! You simply have to order the pizza, and perhaps an appetizer you fancy, and it’d make a most satisfying meal for fans of garlic. Don’t forget to chew on some mint after your meal though, because it’s really all about garlic here! 😀
The Garlic Snowing Pizza you see above is priced at $23.50++, and it has fried garlic, shrimp and pineapple on a really thin pizza crust. Probably the thinnest pizza crust I’ve ever had! There’s also a “sweet white sauce” plus cheese flakes on top (the staff come round to grate it onto your pizza, hence the “snowing” in the name).
I also ordered the Crab & Lobster Pasta ($23.50++) as it’s supposedly one of their bestsellers. On the menu, it’s stated that it comes with “crab meat, lobster meat and garlic cream sauce”. I think I tasted some chewy seafood (it might have been lobster but I’m not sure). A little disappointing to see crabstick in a $23.50++ dish though. 😦
The Garlic Sizzling Rice ($21.50++) is fried rice like you’ve never tasted it before. It has pickled garlic, bacon (oh my!) and flying fish roe, and it’s served on a sizzling hotplate. There’s also a really yummy sauce that’s drizzled over it – I wish there was more though! There’s also onion and capsicum in this dish which looks deceptively easy to cook, but packs a punch in terms of taste.
My pal’s favorite item on the menu is this Dancing Salsa Rice with Beef ($22.50++) below. My goodness, the prices here are steep! But according to my pals, it’s worth it.
Also, you can purchase a Fave by Groupon voucher for dining here. You can get a $35 voucher at half price but you’ll have to order 2 main courses for every voucher you use. The restaurant will serve you complimentary iced water (you get refills for free too) so that’s a relief! 😉
