If you’re a fan of pastas, pizzas and everything Italian, chances are you’ve probably dined at Kucina Italian Restaurant - the first halal Italian restaurant in Singapore. Run by Italian-Muslim convert Chef Gero, their recipes are inspired by his childhood experiences cooking with his Sicilian grandmother at home. So you know you're getting the real deal!
For those living in the West, good news! You can now easily enjoy their yummy offerings at Kiosko Italiano - a halal Italian takeaway kiosk by Kucina located at NEWest mall ? Serving affordable and authentic Italian cuisine, keep reading to find out what are some of the must-try items at Kiosko Italiano.
Are you a huge cheese lover? If the answer is yes, then you definitely can’t miss out on their Cheese Wheel Pasta ($9.50). Tossed in a 12-year-old aged Parmigiano cheese wheel, our mouths are already watering just at the thought of tucking into this cheesy perfection! Take the dish to the next level by adding toppings (at additional charge) such as sauteed mushrooms, crispy turkey bacon and smoked salmon.
Want something lighter but equally as delicious and filling? Say hello to Kuccizino ($10) also known as an Italian pocket sandwich. From pulled beef brisket and chicken cacciatore (Italian tomato stew) to juicy angus meatballs and saucy vegetable capponata (Sicilian-style mixed vegetables), get ready to dive into all sorts of flavourful fillings served in a freshly-baked ciabatta.
Of course, your Italian meal wouldn’t be complete without having their Signature Pizza (9 Inch)! Made fresh onsite when you place your order, you’re guaranteed an authentic taste in every single bite. They’ve got plenty of flavours to choose from but if you have to pick one, make sure to go for the Chef’s recommendation - La Barca “The Boat” (V) ($15.90). With a combination of creamy mushroom with black truffle pate, smoked scamorza cheese and truffle oil, it’s a dish that will delight any pizza lover.
