Pizza Uno @ CenterPoint, Bandar Utama

One Sunday evening, we were driving towards Centrepoint in Bandar Utama, aiming to either go try Bernard's stuff, or to go to Pizza Uno, they apparently served good italian at reasonable prices. However when we sat down and ordered our stuff, we found out that their reputation was exaggerated.

Caesar Salad with Smoked Chicken ...tasted quite good, but for the price? I think it was 16 bucks or something. If it is meant for a single serve, then it is just right.

Tropicana Pizza...26 bucks, for a super thin 10 inch pizza, with barely any pizza sauce and very stingy amount of ingredients. You can count the number of olives, the mushrooms also can count. Don't be fooled by the's looks better than it tastes, really. And to compare , we had a seafood pizza at La Porchetta, Melbourne (will blog about it soon) that was bigger, had more ingredients, definately more pizza sauce and was CHEAPER after conversion!!!

You can see that they stinge on the tomato paste and the cheese, it did not even cover up the entire pizza. The chef was probably sleeping on his job for allowing this pizza to be served. Taste wise, you might as well go order Dominoes, at least you won't expect too much.

Lasagna...ok lar, taste wise, but heck for that small little dish, it costs 20 bucks I think.

I'm so disappointed with Pizza Uno...I remember when it was Pizza Italia, the portions were generous, the topings too and the price was so very reasonable. Now, they don't serve water, but they serve bottled water, at 3 bucks for a small bottle of el cheapo RO drinking water, which was sold for about 30sen in the Supermarket @ Centerpoint.

I left feeling absolutely cheated.

Makan Kings - thought the place was good and price was reasonable

Note: 1. Now I remember, the last time I visited this eatery , it was in March this year. It was when we had a reunion with our highschool classmates. One of our good friends, who did most of the organizing, and ordering of the food also spent quite abit of time complaining to the boss about their service, food, etc....

2. Basically to sum up, Pizza Uno has become famous, these days. They have become LanSi, because they think they are packed always. You reduce the amount of ingredients hoping that customers don't notice.

3. They try to be high class, by not serving water, and equiping their waiters with hands free walkie talkies ( look like Secu), but they put in el cheapo furniture in their restaurant.

4. When I was making pizzas, my manager used to tell me, don't f'king stinge on the tomato paste and cheese.... and put in the ingredients as per the instructions. If you don't know how much to put, there is always a weighing scale in front of you....

5. Now time to try out other places and to forget about Pizza Uno.

My thoughts on Pizza Uno in Taipan,USJ:

They used to be good, I looved their spinach in cheese thingy.

Then I revisited them again recently and the spinach got less and the cheese was different (read: less nicer).

X'ed the place. Plus the place is getting very arrogant. And I'm never going there again on the account of that cockroach that fell on my lap, when we sat at the table outside. EEEEEEEEkk.

Bleu is el cheapo RO water?

Whoah, what a revelation.

And of course you can't compare La Porchetta and Pizza Uno... one's in Malaysia, the other's in Aussie, mate. You're comparing oranges and apples there hun.

Last time I made them, though, I decided to shake things up a bit in terms of ingredients. Instead of pepperoni and Italian sausage, I decided to go with he classic "Hawaiian" pizza combination of Canadian bacon and pineapplePizza Equipment
