Famoso has always been on our list of authenticity when it comes to Neapolitan pizzas. Some may find its dough too soft or soggy but that was the texture of the Neapolitan pizzas we had in Naples, the birth place of this pizza variety. When Famoso recently launched new menu items, we gladly accepted the invitation to give them a try.


Before we got to the new items, we ordered the Polpette al Forno (Spiced Pork Meatballs) to start. They were meaty and juicy, not much filler, and the meatballs held together really well. What made this addictive was the tomato sauce. It was the same sauce you would find in the Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarella Balls; it tasted fresh, tomatoey (if there is such a word) and we really liked the acidity in the tomatoes.

Then, we took our first bites of the new items. The Korean BBQ Pork Pizza could be deceiving. At first we found it a bit sweet from the BBQ sauce and hoisin sauce, then bam! the heat finally hit you and now it’s a fine balance of sweet and spicy. It didn’t look like a lot of meat in the toppings either, but turned out to be just right. If you like Asian food, you will enjoy this Asian twist to an Italian classic.

We were invited by Tableau Bistro to a private party to kick off its first annual “Heads or Tails” Spot Prawn Party. I am a huge fan of spot prawns – I love that it’s meaty yet sweet. At the beginning of the season, we had spot prawns three-way at home: sashimi, steamed and baked heads, and I truly enjoyed it. Therefore I was quite excited to be going to this party.

When I arrived, the dining room was already bustling. Looking around, I saw various stations set up for self-serve dishes, while a few others items were being passed around by the serving staff. That’s quite a creative way to get the guests moving around the space.
