Bravo Restaurant

Went for HOMEDEC at PISA which is currently undergoing renovation for it sPICE project, a subterranean exhibition centre. Well, HOMEDEC 2012 was okay. It didn't wow us like our first one we attended last year. But I guess the first exposure always tends to do that to a person. Still, an outing like that was still very educational. New types of doors, glass, wallpapers, paint stuff, electrical appliances...

We had lunch at this place which was tucked away in the row of shophouses in Bayan Lepas; at iAvenue. I found out that this place opened some time in 2008.

Yup! It's a little Italian restaurant. Only one table was occupied when we stepped in, which was actually quite early for lunch.

We started off with the soup of the day, which was a vegetable soup and bruschetta. The bruschetta was light, with herbs, tomatoes and cheese on it. It was nice taken hot. Tomatoes and cheese always go well together.

We also tried their baked oysters - Baked Oyster Vesuvio, topped with fresh tomatoes, sweet pepper and melted cheese. There were mushrooms in it too. It was nice enough for Other Half who is not much a raw oyster fan. I think I still like oysters raw. But these were okay and they tasted far better than the fried ones.

We took the liberty of trying their pizza. Took the Hawaian Pizza. I would have like to try something else but Daughter wanted this. It was good, not oily and more importantly we had real chicken meat instead of the processed meats that one usually gets with the big chain pizza franchises. Taste wise? Well, one can taste the fresh stuff on it. Pizzas from restaurants like Pizza Hut are way too oily. They leave your hand greasy and glistening. You don't get it with the pizza here. It's light enough on the stomach.

I ordered their pie for dessert but have forgotten whether it's mango or lime. Anyway, it's not overly sweet. There is a sourish taste at each bite which makes it quite appetizing. I could finish it without feeling queasy.

I read somewhere the owner spent some time in Italy. Would I go back there again? Most probably yes, for the pizza! And the baked scallops and mussels! 8)
