Lunch @ Rosso Pizza, Munich

M wanted to bring me to her favourite pizzeria in Munich so we met for lunch at Rosso. M told me that the place was run by Italians and served the best pizzas in town at recession-friendly prices. The pizzeria was small but cosy and the service was very warm. What a pleasant place to have lunch at! I wish we had such places in Singapore.

Pizza Delizia - Bresaola, Arugula & Parmesan

Pizza Delizia @ EUR8.50
Bresaola (air-dried cured beef), Arugula (rocket) & Shaved Parmesan

I ordered the Pizza Delizia which came topped with Bresaola (air-dried cured beef), Arugula and Parmesan as I love cured meats, arugula and cheese. The thin crust was crisp on the outside which yielded to a soft interior when bitten into. I love thin crust pizzas because they offer a perfect balance of toppings vis-a-vis crust.

Closer look at the Bresaola
The awesome combination of thinly-sliced salty cured beef, peppery arugula and savoury parmesan shavings on a base of slightly tart but rich tomato sauce was most satisfying. I found myself polishing off the entire pizza without any problem.This is definitely a MUST-TRY!
M's Picante Salami & Ricotta Pizza
Picante Salami & Ricotta Pizza @ EUR8.50

I tried a slice of M's Pizza. Though the toppings of this pizza are not as strong in flavour as mine, they did not pale in comparison as the rich flavour of tomato sauce (which wasn't exceedingly tart) went very well with the delicate flavour of the ricotta and the slightly salty and spicy flavour of the salami.
Latte @ Rosso, Munich
Latte Macchiato @ EUR2.60
I finished my meal with a perfectly made cup of Latte Macchiato. This was the best cup of coffee I ever had in the 10 days that I spent in Germany. Most of the coffees that I had in various coffee shops were too watered down to enjoy. They left a bitter taste in my mouth (literally and metaphorically) with an unsated yearning for a caffeine buzz.

The aromatic, robust yet not overly acidic nor watered down cup of latte at Rosso was a great pick-me-up that gloomy and rainy afternoon in Munich. If you love your coffee, this is definitely the place to check out. The coffee here is definitely a MUST-TRY!
