It is finally here – PizzaExpress is now open in Singapore, and it sits on the basement level of Scotts Square. The name should be no stranger to you as they have over 500 outlets in United Kingdom, various European countries, Hong Kong, India and the Middle East.
Founder Peter Boizot created this wildly successful pizzeria chain because having tried and tested the best and most authentic pizzas during his holidays in Italy, he was unsatisfied with what he had in London. PizzaExpress was thus conceived in United Kingdom, with the notion of offering authentic Italian pizza outside of Italy to the masses.
Having tried and loved PizzaExpress when we were in London, we are extremely stoked to have them here in our own country. We popped by for a preview and had a taste of their world-renowned pizzas – made from scratch in store with fresh ingredients. Besides pizzas, the menu is pretty much similar to that of U.K’s, with a whole range of salads, pastas and bite-size snacks.
Most of the dishes on PizzaExpress’ menu are priced under S$20 – they are extremely reasonable for the quality and huge portions. Here’s what you can expect from PizzaExpress’s first outlet in Singapore – which is officially opening its doors to the public this coming Friday (29 July 2016).
Over the years and especially in recent times, a new wave of mod-sin gourmet interpretations have been taking Singapore’s dining scene by storm and we are now seeing more and more unique East-meets-West creations. The terminology ‘mod-sin’ stands for modern Singaporean and refers to the interesting marriage of local delicacies and western classics, and should be a harmonious blend of flavours that complement each other.
With that simple but important focus, redpan at Marina Square – a hidden gem we fell in love with lately – has created a comprehensive menu of fusion inventions that have successfully combined the best of both worlds.
A little fun fact: redpan is an exciting collaborative venture between local architectural company DP Architects and homegrown The Food Explorer Group, who is behind Grub.
From Truffle Floss Fries, Prawn & ‘Hae Bi Hiam’ Pasta and Banana Donuts ‘Milo Dinosaur’, redpan’s menu drove us crazy and we actually cannot pick just one favourite. Well, our lunch was good and these were what we had.
While we might be living in one of the world’s most expensive cities, dining in a romantic restaurant does not necessary mean we have to break the bank.

From fancy Italian establishments to specialty steakhouses, here are 15 Romantic Restaurants in Singapore to bring your date.
Concetto by Saveur is one of the ventures by the successful Saveur group, serving a range of Italian food instead of their usual French fare.
Concetto sports a chic and current industrial-style interior that screams minimalistic without being overly pretentious. With a simple and to-the-point menu, we saw countless of options from fresh pastas to heartier red meat options.
Dining out in Singapore can be very cheap, and it can be a costly affair too. Sure, you can do the budget way and have hawker food every day, but eating is also a form of social activity and there are many times that call for a proper meal at a proper outlet. And inevitably, that would mean spending more and S$3 for a plate of chicken rice no longer applies.
But we are fortunate enough to be in Singapore – the land of food. And the possibility of a pig flying is higher than you running out of dining options here. Dining out need not be expensive, really.
