Skinny Pizza, Singapore…squid ink pizza and black pepper prawn linguine are pure magic

Pizza is officially rated the world’s most popular food, and rightly so too. Asia has seen a boom in gourmet pizza restaurants of late.

Skinny Pizza’s squid ink pizza  does not only look like something that would feed Darth Vader, but has fullness, richness and jam packed with flavor. With an impossibly thin and crunchy crust, it’s a dish with something to say. The black pepper prawn linguine was perfect, simple pleasure. Linguine tossed in a fragrant black pepper sauce and prawn Bolognese. Topped with succulent char-grilled prawns. Skinny Pizza had it bang on.

As a fan of butter chicken, I took the bait and ordered the ginger butter chicken pizza. What a mistake. Butter chicken is great. Pizza is great. That doesn’t mean the two can be successfully merged — in fact, just the opposite: slice after slice, it got more repulsive when you bite into it.

Whatever you do, just don’t take someone who’s going to order just a salad. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Hudson Eats, New York City…..gourmet options from popular NYC restaurants in a food court

To review a food court is a difficult proposition because, at least in this case, each vendor has a primary residence elsewhere. Hudson Eats is a fancy, airy, marbled and luxurious food court by Two World Financial Center with floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping killer views of the Hudson and the Statue of Liberty. There are 600 seats over 35,000 square feet of sleek space.

This is a one-of-a-kind food court with over 14 gourmet options from popular NYC restaurants. Grilled cheese specialist Little Muenster is a vendor. You would be able to enjoy the diet-friendly, delicious Buffalo cheese pie from Skinny Pizza and seriously sugary cupcakes from Sprinkles. There’s Umami Burger, proudly peddling flavor bombs on buns and made-to-order salad maestros like Chop’t.

Overall Hudson Eats is an OK place but $20 lunches is not for the everyman. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
