Birthday Celebration At Blend It Up

[Media Invite]

The boy turned 10 last Saturday and we had a feast with him with my sister's family. But we usually have a chain of celebrations with different groups of people. So, on Tuesday, our family went to Blend It Up for another feast, just the 3 of us. 

Blend It Up is an Italian Fusion Casual Dining restaurant along Upper Paya Lebar Road helmed by popular Celebrity Chef, Peter Neo. His latest venture into Italian fusion food, combining local flavours with Italian dishes brings a new face to casual dining.

Blend It Up is a play on the restaurant’s fusion concept, bringing an Asian twist to Italian cuisine. With a local spin on classic Italian dishes, you could observe the Asian favourites like salted egg, roasted pork belly, tom yum, etc. subtly introduced in the extensive menu.

More importantly, it represents Chef Peter Neo’s guiding principle to only use the freshest quality ingredients, blending all of them together with their natural goodness to create the restaurant’s handcrafted soups, sauces and mains.

The first dish that was served was AJ's favourite. This thick, rich and creamy bowl of Mushroom Soup contains chunks of mushroom in every mouthful. 

Mushroom Soup 

As for me, I love this Seafood Soup concocted with prawn, clams, mussel and squid in spicy tomato sauce, white wine and basil leaves. It was not too salty, not too spicy and not too sweet, everything was just right and the soup was just too good to share.

Our main dish included this delectable thin and crispy crust signature pizza with feta and mozzarella cheese, honey baked ham, mushroom and sunny side up. This is Blend It Up Pasta. The uniqueness is in its sunny side up. The yolk will just ooze out if you peel off the pizza. If you want to have the whole egg yolk on its own (like I do), use a spoon to scoop out the yolk first.

A foolproof method that my mother had taught me to test if the prawns are fresh is to check if the shells stuck to flesh. I tell you, the prawns I have eaten in the Seafood Soup, in the Tom Yum Pasta and the Prawn Paste Pasta were so flesh and I could de-shell them for AJ to eat so effortlessly.

The husband loves this plate of Tom Yum Pasta so much that he cleaned it up alone. Fortunately I had 2 mouthful before I passed it to him. I too, would have cleaned it up if I wasn't watching my carbo intake. We are super afraid of tom yum which is spicy that could choke us if we aren't careful, but this plate of Tom Yum Pasta has the intensity that was just right. It was bagus!

The next main course that we had was Prawn Paste Pasta. This is a dry version, much like stir-fry, and was very delicious. If you love spicy food, this will definitely suit your palate.

Before we left, we had the chance to taste this mouth-watering Sesame Lava Cake that is not launched yet. Woo... you got to watch the video below. I simply wiped up all the sesame lava. It was slightly salty, not on the sweet side, totally suit my palate. The vanilla ice-cream was licked clean by the little boy, of course.
