A Taste of Provence at Café Provençal

This summer, you don't need an airplane ticket and a passport to the south of France to celebrate Summer in Provence...Café Provençal can take you there...and it's just an MRT ride away. Located at the 2nd Floor of the Shangri-La Mall, Café Provençal is a quaint little corner for you to enjoy fantastic pizzas, an assortment of wines, and delicious food.

In celebration of summer, the cafe offers four variants of Napoletana Pizzas, a perfect pairing to a chilled glass of wine. With only the freshest ingredients topping a crisp, freshly-baked crust, these pizzas are excellent any time of day. My personal favorite was the Asparagus Pizza. Yup, asparagus. I never imagined having this particular vegetable on a pizza, but as Chef and General Manager Jacq Tan explained, the asparagus gives a unique nutty taste to their pizzas. With sundried tomatoes and ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, this pizza was quite satisfying, and yet quite light. For those who want a pizza that packs a meatier punch, the Tarragon Chicken is a great choice. If you're looking for some heat, try the Spicy Chorizo pizza, or if you're the vegan type, the Roasted Garlic (with fresh basil and chili flakes, yum!) one. We were served chilled Rosette Wine with our pizzas. Despite not being much of a wine afficionado, I have to admit the two together was simply superb.

We bloggers were not only treated to a taste of Café Provençal's wine and pizza. We even got a taste of their take on putanesca as well as their special Beef Burgandy. The beef was beyond delicious!!! Soft, tasty, indulgent, perfect with mashed potatoes, rice or even pasta noodles.

No meal would be complete without dessert...and of course, we were not left in the lurch! We sampled their beignet with chocolate sauce and strawberry cheescake. I loved them both of course!

Overall, I would give Café Provençal a big, loud burp (perhaps more than just one!) of approval!
