Having had quite a positive experience at Alfredo's Pizzeria, we were up for trying new pizza places. Our quest lead us to Sugo Mi on Oxford Street at Bulimba, where we went for a lazy Saturday lunch.
The menu was short but detailed, having a large selection of pizzas and some pastas along with sides and entrees.
We were given a seat near the kitchen, where we could appreciate the chefs making the meal, which is something I enjoy very much.
Between the two of us we shared two pizzas and one side.
Each of the pizzas came with a cutter, so we were free to cut the pizza as we saw fit, which was quite fun.
The first pasta we ordered was the Palermo. It contained Sugo, smoked ham, prosciutto, smoked mozzarella, parsley and evo. For those who are unaware, sugo is a traditional slow cooked Italian tomato sauce. We found the pizza to be very flavoursome, with the sugo balancing out hte saltiness of the ham and proscuitto. We loved the tang of the smoked mozarella and the added parsely rounded it off very well. The base was just right, being nicely thin, but without being too hard and crunchy, it was very delicious and didn't flake everywhere, which made it very tasty. It was also quite an interesting oval shape, which is different from the usual circle.
The second pizza we ordered was the Arrostita. It contained slow roasted pork, caramelized onion, mozzarella, aged balsamic & rocket. I enjoyed the pork very much, and it added another layer of texture to the pizza. I didnt like the sweetness of the caramelized onion though, which was a bit over the top for my tastes. I guess next time I will definitely stick to the sugo pizzas, especially being the namesake of the restaurant.
We also shared a serve of fries with aioli. To this, I must say that I've never had fries that maintained their crispiness for so long. It was very impressive. On the other hand though, it was quite salty and we ended up tapping every fry that we ate to get the excess salt off. I liked how much garlic flavour the aioli had though.
Price Range: $20 - $30 per person
