Tino's Pizza Express by Chatime_1

Bubble tea colossus Chatime is venturing into the lucrative pizza business with this new outlet in Bangsar South’s Nexus complex; it’s the springboard for an imminent Tino’s Pizza chain that serves what it considers to be Neapolitan-style pizza.

Fiorentina

Baked at high temperatures of 500 °C for slightly more than a minute, Tino’s pizzas showcase hand-tossed soft dough for a thick and filling bread-like base (not a crunchy thin crust). Tasty toppings like beef bacon, spinach and a sunny-side up (RM21.90 for this medium-sized, six-slice Fiorentina) help to make these recipes sufficiently satisfying.

Duck Caponata

We also like the Duck Caponata (RM25.90 for medium, RM38.90 for large), well-covered with roast duck, broccoli, capsicum and melted cheese. Everything tastes flavoursome & fairly fresh (for fast food), probably a notch above the large pizza corporations.

Lamb Abruzzo

Lamb Abruzzo, with lamb, garlic, chilli flakes and mozzarella cheese (RM24.90 for medium). The pizzas are ready really fast, scarcely within 10 minutes of our order. But a customer’s enjoyment of this might hinge on his/her tolerance for heavy crusts.

Four-cheese

Oval-shaped pizzas are also available; we like the sweet-savoury four-cheese one made gooey with blue, parmesan, mozzarella and cheddar, drizzled with honey for the icing on this cake. RM19.90 (four slices).

Dessert Pizzas

Distinctive-looking ‘Crustar’ dessert pizzas are a speciality here too; this Matcha Mochi (RM16.90) comes with green tea powder, white rice cakes, red bean, crushed peanuts and mint leaves. Another possibility would be the Fruity Honey Pearl, which features apple, peach, kiwi fruit, cranberries & tapioca pearls.

Sides

Peanut butter alert! Among the sides, the top temptation is indisputably these fries, blanketed with peanut butter, beef bacon and chilli powder (RM9.90). The flavours blend well together in one addictive ensemble.

Other options: Pumpkin soup with dough slices (RM8.90), minestrone, fried jalapeno strips with passion fruit yoghurt dips, chicken wings with a ‘Sicilian sauce’ and more.

Beverages

Beverages comprise a longer-than-expected list of lattes (vanilla, hazelnut, mocha, caramel), smoothies, fruit teas, soft drinks & of course, milk tea.
