PIZZA & COFFEE @ MERDEKA PALACE, KUCHING

Gustosa With Truffle Oil

This is upscale pizza due to its locality: a posh hotel at the heart of the city. But you don't have to be all spiffied up to get a bite of the deliciously thin crusted pizza. That's why we were having a late night snack within the peripheral confines of the Italian Ristorante Beccari - right outside the restaurant, at the lounge area of the Seattle Coffee Bar. You don't have to be pretentious 'cos there's nobody to see you, and nobody cares whether you strut in with a pair of flip-flops (See the 2 slackers left).

If you can spare a few dimes for Starbucks, the coffee here is within that ballpark. However on that particular night, the barista's drinks did not rise to the occasion - missing the oomph!

But the pizzas is another story; as usual, they never fail to please. They were ordered from the Italian restaurant, and delivered to the lounge. The pizzas were fired in the wood-burning oven, the centerpiece of the restaurant's dining area. It's not often that I have pizza, about twice a year, and this is one of those pizza moments; so when it's time to indulge, why not splurge a bit!

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
