Sole Pomodoro, MacKenzie Road

Sole Pomodoro

This was lunch over some beer, a couple of glasses of wine and pizza over at Sole Pomodoro (19/21 Mackenzie Road, #01-01, tel : +65 6884 3671).

Sole Pomodoro burrata

Starting bites included some light and refreshing buffalo mozzarella and boiled salami with a lime mayo that seemed to have misplaced the citrus element of the lime. The cheese was light and milky, served Caprese style. The boiled meat of the salami appeared crumbly in texture and didn't have much of flavour.

Sole Pomodoro calzonecalzone tradizionale

The pizzas were pretty much as they had looked. Thin crispy crusted pies that became a little soggy after a while, soaked from the grease and folding from the weight of the toppings. The speciale could have done much better in my opinion with more of those miserable bits of prawn and of course, Gorgonzola. The siciliana was in spite of appearances, very nicely spread with the salty anchovies. Don't think the traditional calzone should come with shiitake mushrooms. Those mushrooms aren't part of tradition are they? Their particular type of strong flavour also ruined the calzone for me.

I didn't think that there would be anything in particular that would make me come back. That said, I'm not saying that they sucked. The food was passable. Just a little pricey for the location.
