Revisit PEPeNERO Cucina Italiana

It's my second visit to Pepenero Cucina Italiana restaurant with my ex-colleagues.

This time, although it's the same restaurant but we tried different dishes and also dined at the outside of the restaurant.

I feel that my first visit to this restaurant was nicer than this second visit, probably it's because that time, we ate inside the restaurant and the choice of dishes were better. I had the Rigatoni Stracicati which wasn't as good as I thought. The rigatoni was still too hard and as for the Pancetta E Grana (pizza), its edge got burnt and tasted bitter, too long in the oven.

  7. Haha, the idea of eating Italian in Asia always seems so weird to me. (Somehow, weirder than eating it in the US.) I'm sorry that the food wasn't as good this time. Undercooked pasta is such a drag in an otherwise delicious dish!

  8. mica: hehehe... never thought that eating Italian food in Asia is weird, I was more amazed during the 80s when I could find it in Jakarta.

  20. I used to go there quite often. I really like their appetizer. I tried the pasta once (forgot the name) and it was good; tasty sauce and the pasta were cooked perfectly. The thing I like about Pepenero is that it's quite cheap compare to other similar restaurants.
