4. Milano Pizza & Wine

Tatler Asia

At Milano, the neo-Neapolitan pies are made with a 24-hour naturally fermented sourdough and baked in a stone-fired pizza oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The result is a wonderfully charred crust that is airy and chewy, with a hint of tanginess. Try the potato and caviar pizza, made with its signature dough base and dressed in taleggio cheese, scalloped potatoes and dollops of caviar.
Other than neo-Neapolitan pies, Milano also offers Sicilian grandma pizzas. These two-inch deep pies are made with sourdough that are folded and rested every two hours for 24 hours before they are baked in the oven. This process gives each pie a light and airy base and a ‘honeycombed’ crumb centre. Go for the mortadella and burrata pizza topped with slices of stracciatella, mortadella, and pistachio pesto.
