Review of Pizza Hut Pasta Perfetto5 September, 2009
Pizza Hut Pasta Perfetto
You might have seen the Pizza Hut ad teasers about their new Pasta Perfetto (note the spelling – not Perfectto). Is it really as good as what they say in the press ads and commercials? We decided to give it a try and review it like how we did for the Swensens Ice-Cream Buffet at Ion Orchard.
Pizza Hut has a huge range of pasta and they had classified them into 2 categories – Pasta Perfetto Speciality Pasta and Classic Pasta. The cheapest of them all is the Classic Pasta Veggie Pomodoro ($5.90). Those in the Pasta Perfetto Speciality Pasta category cost at least $10.90 (excluding GST & Service Charge)
HSBC credit cardholders are offered a 1-for-1 Pasta Perfetto deal. It is applicable at most Pizza hut restaurants everyday, including weekends. Do note that you will be paying for a Pasta Perfetto Specialty Pasta and the free one had to be a Classic Pasta.
I ordered a Fish in Tomato Cream Sauce (their signature Pasta Perfetto Specialty Pasta dish – $11.90). Pizza Hut describes this dish as “Crispy fried fish fillet on a bed of spaghetti gets a refreshing spin with a unique blend of tangy pomodoro and white cream sauces.“
For our free pasta, TY ordered a Prawn Aglio Olio ($7.50) – This is the perfect choice if you love the mild spicy kick that comes with fresh prawns on spaghetti with olive oil, freshly crushed garlic and sliced chilli padi.
The Fish in Tomato Cream Sauce Pasta looks very appealing presentation-wise. Another plus is its strong cream sauce smell that makes you want to dive straight into it. Mix well and you are good to go for a yummy pasta meal.
The Aglio Olio was spicy and the prawn was very fresh – very appetising as well. For an additional $5, you can upgrade your meal to include a soft drink, 3 roasted chicken wings and the soup of the day.
Our total bill for 2 comes up to $19.90 for 2 pasta, 3 roasted chicken wings, 1 soft drink and soup of the day. Quite reasonable thanks to the HSBC 1-for-1 Pasta Perfetto Offer.
