~Invited Session~

The all new Capitol Piazza is a haven for foodies, until the rest of Singapore is awakened and decides to shift their focus from the likes of Raffles City, Marina Square and Suntec here. It is home to Spizza Mercato, Llao Llao and Dazzling Cafe amongst several others.

Spizza Mercato is The Spizza Group's latest venture with a gourmet retail component.Their retail component is great for takeaways, noob cooks and has something for everyone.

The takeaway counter is as enticing as their thaw-away counter.

Appetizers, mains or dessert is just a takeaway-away! What a pun, but you do get the idea.

I fell in love with this very photogenic green wall.

Spizza Signature Cooler (Mango and Passionfruit) ($6.80)

Indulge in one of these soda-based chillers to chase the hot days away. I prefer this to their signature though which was a tad too sweet.

Burratina ($22)

Cold cuts, rocket leaves and that much loved burrata cheese. Since Italy, I have loved burrata with a greater vengeance, that milky and creamy interior makes any dish taste so good.

Gondola Isabella ($25)

The fun part about their pizzas is, they can be made in the shape of Gondola and actually are stuffed with more cheese than the equivalent in pizza.  The Isabella had ham and rockets two very basic ingredients that were sufficient to rock this gondola - indulge in copious amounts of cheese too!

 Green Spinach ‘TRIANGOLI’ stuffed with spinach and mushrooms in porcini and cream sauce ($18 for ten pieces, $14 for 7 pieces)

Exclusive to Spizza Mercato, this stuffed pasta special is not to be missed! Pasta parcels stuffed with spinach and mushrooms dressed in a light creamy sauce, this earthy delight is great for sharing.

Squid Ink Taglierini with Mixed Seafood in Tomato Sauce ($20)

Part of the create your own pasta menu, this is the time to test your culinary awareness and experiment with flavours without having to worry about the cooking and mess created.

The combination actually worked very well and I loved the texture of their homemade taglierini. These are made in house daily and the dried version is available over the counter! The folks behind Spizza by Mercato also understand the dietary restrictions of some diners, there is an option for your pasta to be gluten-free as well.

Tiramisu ($9.50)

The best way to end an Italian meal is to end it with a classic - tiramisu. Other options include lemon tart and panna cotta.

I am liking this new concept by Senso Group, one that fills the gaps between Spizza and Senso. A casual hangout for hearty food at pocket friendly prices.
