Tino’s Pizza Cafe – Authentic Italian Flavours by Taiwan Pizza Chain
Tino’s Pizza Cafe, which has already made Resorts World Sentosa and Tiong Bahru Plaza their homes, is the new kid on the block at The Centrepoint. We were surprised to learn that Tino’s Pizza Cafe is actually a brand from Taiwan. The cosy interior at The Centrepoint outlet makes it a good place to chill out, or to rest your legs after an exhausting day of shopping along Orchard Road.
Choose between the Neapolitan (thick crust) or Roman (thin crust) pizza, before you customise it with your choice of toppings. There are more than 10 types of toppings available. The Neapolitan Pizza will be divided into 6 slices while the Roman Pizza will be divided into 8 slices – more to go around! Mr. Tino ($15.90 Neapolitan / $21.90 Roman) consists of your choice of chicken or beef bacon and pepperoni, oyster mushrooms, capsicums, shredded onions, oregano and black olives.
Our order of Mr. Tino (roman) pizza arrived piping hot, and was topped generously with ingredients. The thin crust was crispy, with a commendable chewiness. The buttery fragrance and cheesiness of the dough were both perfect.
Tino’s Pizza Cafe also serves paella and spaghetti, and we tried the Seafood Paella ($17.90). The overly-charred paella rice was topped with shrimps, calamari, clams, oyster mushrooms, capsicums and shredded onions, and sprinkled with basil, turmeric and bonito powder. Unfortunately, this item was a disappointment – a far cry from the authentic Spanish paella. Perhaps, Tino’s Pizza Cafe should just stick to their expertise in making pizza dough as our dessert pizza was as amazing as the savoury pizzas.
There are three Dessert Crustar – Fruity Delight, Berry Lemon and Banana Oreo – all priced at $10.90 each. The beautifully star-shaped Fruity Delight pizza contains peach, kiwi, tapioca pearls and Tino’s milk tea mousse, all drizzled with condensed milk and sprinkled with icing powder. They must have ran out of cranberries as we didn’t get any on ours. This dessert pizza dough had a texture similar to Focaccia bread, and was light, with just the right amount of sweetness! Tino Pizza Cafe is a Taiwanese brand and they surely displayed their love for bubble tea by adding tapioca pearls to the pizza. However, we felt that the pizza would have tasted better without the pearls.
There are a couple of pizza chains in Singapore but Tino’s Pizza Cafe stood out a little more due to their wonderful pizza dough. There are also reasonably priced set meals and family feasts available at Tino’s Pizza Cafe.
