The lovely Sneexe had pointed out this new addition to the already bustling SS2 area... but I couldn't join her for dinner so had to check it out another night....
It's not hard to find, just upstairs of the also fairly new Geylang Lor 9 restaurant:
(I have attached a Google Map at the bottom of this post for your reference, just in case)
Inside, the restaurant is comfortable but very simple - very down to earth and cosy:
Looking at the menu, the selection is limited to a few starters, some pies, some pizzas, a lot of different milkshakes and a few soup noodles.... Still, it's plenty to choose from, and everything is pretty decently priced...
We started off with the Mushroom Soup (RM 5):
I appreciated that the texture was creamy without being too thick/ starchy, but the taste didn't blow my mind - really didn't expect it to, I guess, considering the super decent price of RM 5.
I felt like pizza so I chose the Pizza Rustica (RM 10)
The thick pizza base was nicely crispy on the outside and not starchy - good!...
Also, there was a decent amount of cheese, tender chunks of chicken and some (most probably canned) mushrooms and pineapple which made for a very fulfilling meal.
Here's a closer look at one slice:
It was actually quite daunting to try to finish this 8 inch pizza by myself (better to share)... Wouldn't mind ordering this again though! It's definitely not authentic by Italian pizza standards, but was tasty in a very nice, simple, home cooked way.
Unfortunately, the Chunky Beef Pie (Usual: RM 9. That night - promotional price: RM 4.50) didn't impress:
I mean, if your restaurant is named Pie in The Sky, then shouldn't your pies be super yummy?
The pastry was ok - fairly flakey and slightly crisp (but also just a tad starchy)... It was the filling that was the let down - not much meat in it and what was there was just a tad stringy:
Erm... and sorry loh, the milkshake I had - Chocolate Temptation (RM 7.80), also didn't impress:
I guess with a name like Chocolate Temptation, I expected it to be thick and chocolate-y... and it wasn't.
(Still, it's not BAD or anything like that,... just not KAO enough for me....)
At the end of the day:
Although I only really liked the pizza, I think I'll be going back soon for that and to test out the other pies....
(Especially the apple pie, which I heard is good - I'm curious, and at those prices, I can afford to be experimental!...)
Oh, sidetrack a bit - Look! Engrish!
Overall: Simple cafe in SS2, friendly service, decent selection of pizzas and pies at very decent prices BUT some hits and misses on the menu and parking can be a bit challenging sometimes....
