Tasconi's Pizza ('Tasconi') is a franchised pizzeria originated from Brunei. Yup, your eyes did not deceived you. BRUNEI!!. This Halal certified pizzeria uses digital ovens imported from Italy, and developed its owned tried and tested recipes since 1994. Understanding the different taste in each countries, Tasconi allowed their franchisee to tweak and introduced additional flavours to suit the locals.

First branch of Tasconi in Singapore has opened in East Village Simpang Bedok. The décor is simple, like any other takeaway pizza outlets with limited seats for dine in.
In conjunction with upcoming Ramadhan period, Tasconi's Pizza Singapore is introducing two additional flavours for the festive season. Gourmet Pizza Satay and Gourmet Pizza Rendang. Tasconi served Pan Style Pizza, with crunchy crust, Tasconi recipe tomato base sauce and topped with generous toppings and well covered with the mozzarella.
When you bite into the Satay Pizza, you will first taste the combination of peanut sauce with melted mozzarella. Following that, the tender beef meat with the usual aromatic seasoning for satay such as turmeric, coriander and lemongrass. The ingredients on the pizza are so well spread so you get the meat in each bite.

The Rendang Pizza has came with colourful red and green capsicum to differentiate the dish. The beef chunks are lean and tender, with strong flavours of spice that surrounds your mouth instant. LD & I find that it can be better if it has a bit of rendang gravy.

Meanwhile, we also tried the time tested dishes in Tasconi's such as their Mexican Wings ($7.40 for 4 pcs) and Shepherd's Pie ($7.90). Tasconi uses fresh chicken wings instead of frozen resulting in a tender succulent chicken wings. While the skin of the wings are well seasoned, it does not really absorb into the meat. Maybe the seasoning time can be extended to ensure it absorb well into the meat.
A combination of mash potatoes with cheese are just comfort food to me. Using beef instead of lamb, created the bolognaise sauce feel. The crispy cheese on top was just a bonus. A good alternative dish other than pizza.

The pricing for the pizza dishes are $18.80 for Regular (10”), $23.80 for Large (12”) and $28.80 for X-Large (14”).
In summary, the entrance of Tasconi's Pizza to Singapore market provide an alternative option compare to the rest of big player in the market. I certainly enjoy the flavours that they introduce for this Ramadhan period and from what I tasted Tasconi has all the ingredients to be successful in Singapore. Cheers!!
