Friday at Mad!

As you all know by now, Friday is my night out with CH. Dinner last night was at Mad! Pizza, a little place along Balestier Road that we had driven past many times before. We decided, or rather I decided that we shouldn't be spending so lavishly, so we opted for something simple like vegetarian pasta for our main meal. We had the salt and pepper calamari too.

The vegetarian pasta is not too bad except that the spaghetti is cut into short strands like it's for a kid's meal. I'm not sure what seasoning is used exactly but I tasted oyster sauce. Cooked with black olives and lots of sweet onion, the dish tastes more oriental than Italian.

CH helped me get some shots too.

It has become our habit to shoot before we eat.

The calamari is nice. The little glass bowl contains belachan, a fiery chilli mixture that went so well with the battered pieces. It gives an extra kick to this dish. They forgot to bring the potato wedges that came with this meal. Good thing CH asked. The wedges arrived later, piping hot!

LOL! I've not heard of a blogger who doesn't take pictures of food before they eat.

And the food looks pretty yummy too :D

I like that - shoot before you eat!
I know what you mean though. I often think, this food would look good on my blog!
