If it weren’t for my friend Deb I don’t think I would ever get to try Bistro Ravioli and that would have been a shame. Let me tell you what you’re missing.
The restaurant is just by the road that bisects Mall of Asia buildings where Ace Hardware and Krispy Kreme are. If you have a driver or a kind and thoughtful partner you can be dropped off at the restaurant before they go looking for a parking space.
With so many, many restaurants in Mall of Asia I wouldn’t have chosen to eat at Bistro Ravioli since I’ve never heard of it before Deb told me that their food is good.
I’m not a chicken wings connoisseur but I enjoyed eating these crunchy wings with a smooth and mild heat. I just didn’t care for their ranch dressing since I wanted traditional blue cheese dressing. The wings didn’t really need any dip anyway.
Both raviolis we ordered were really good. The al dente pasta didn’t disappoint. For a vegetarian option the spinach and Feta cheese filled ravioli won’t make you miss meat. It was full flavored and the tomato sauce provided good balance and the pesto added a nice kick.
I personally loved the mushroom ravioli even more. The light brown butter & olive oil sauce just barely coated the ravioli but the flavor was amazing.
What really blew me away were there pizzas cooked in a brick oven pizza. I don’t know if their oven is just an electric oven with bricks on the outside or a real wood burning brick oven but whatever it was it produced one of the best pizza crusts I’ve ever eaten.
The crust was really thin and yet it never got soggy. It was firm enough to hold the weight of all the sauce, cheese and toppings without drooping like most. I never eat the rim of the pizza crust but these I ate to the last bit. The puffy rim or edge of the crust was even more crisp and it was hollow in the inside. I dipped it in some ravioli sauce and it was heavenly.
I do like a simple well made Margherita pizza but it was their fennel sausage pizza that I fell in love with. They make their own sausage from lean pork and fennel seeds. Instead of tomato sauce a light cream sauce was used. The combination of homemade sausage, cream sauce, shredded scallion and a kick ass crust made this quite a memorable and uber delicious pizza. I would go back for their pizzas alone.
After lunch we had liquid dessert at Gong Cha.
Elisa took this beautiful picture of MOA’s atrium. You can see the globe just to the right.
Before heading home we all took home some glazed donuts and coffee from Krispy Kreme.
Trust me on this. You have to try the food at Bistro Ravioli specially their pizzas!!!
Next time I want to try the spicy chorizo and garlic clam supreme pizzas. I’ve never had clam pizza before!
