If there ever was a Dracula apocalypse, this is the place to seek cover at! Strings and strings of garlics are hung across ceilings and ledges, they keep garlic-haters at bay too, I’m sure. Originated in Korea, Mad for Garlic serves innovative garlic-specialised Italian cuisine, promised to change your biased views about this healthy albeit pungent root vegetable.
LEFT: Yujaade ($5.90) – Basically yuzu and soda, good to ward off any lingering garlicky breath after the meal.
RIGHT: Wineade ($5.90) – A mixture of wine and soda. A delicious, mild alcoholic drink that is very friendly on the wallet!
Garlic Snowing Pizza: Mad for Garlic Special Sweet Pizza topped w Shrimp & Pineapple ($23.50) – A garlicky spin-off of Hawaiian pizza sans pork. A top pick by the restaurant, it sure was tasty. I liked the thin crust of the pizza and it has a unique sweet taste to it. The shrimps were fresh and the fried (whole and sliced) garlics were crunchy and surprisingly not garlicky at all! Parmesan cheese is freshly shaved at the table, snowed onto the garlic pizza.
Gorgonzola Cream Pasta: Creamy Potato Gorgonzola Cheese Pasta served w Scallop & Grilled King Oyster Mushroom ($24.60) – Yet another yummy dish! Again, there’s a sweet taste to the cream sauce that is highly addictive. Spaghetti was al-dente and scallops were perfectly cooked. The mushrooms were a little hard to bite but retained its chewiness.
Mad for Garlic has a really extensive menu, with at least a dozen variety of pastas and pizzas, as well as fried rice and steak! The price may be a little steep but the portions are rather big so you can always share 2 dishes among 3 people (like what me and my friends did). Fear of pungent garlics will be dispelled after a meal here I promise. Mad for Garlic shall live up to its name! ;D
