Posted on Updated on

With over 135 restaurants globally, Vapiano Australia is part of an acclaimed international casual dining restaurant covering Europe, Asia, USA and the Middle East. For Australia, Vapiano has spread across Gold Coast, Melboure, Brisbane and Sydney. To match the Aussie attitude, Vapiano’s fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs are sourced locally in each market. They pride themselves on fresh flavoursome food to match their cheekily fresh attitude. And if you didn’t know already, Vapiano makes new pasta and pizza dough every day in their see-through glass manifattura within the restaurant. Also their basil grow fresh at every table. Click here. Feeling hungry? Then I got good news for you readers! Keep reading for more details because Nessy Eater is running a COMPETITION to give you and a plus one a chance to dine at Vapiano Sydney.

Vapaino pulls in crowds during dinner with its freshly made pasta, but did you know for spring, they make their own pumpkin soup? I know winter months have passed, but the Classic Pumpkin Soup ($6.90) contains LOADS of different flavours. I’ll warn you now that this is not to be shared. The soup is a tad on the thick side, but boy it is smooth like a baby’s bottom. OKAY, that was a joke, but close enough! This soup has a deliciously sweet flavour that it is hard to say no to. It is generously topped with some large garlic croutonsbasil and sprinkles of parmesan that brightens up the soup.

What’s next was the Pizza Porporano ($19.90) that features homemade tomato sauce and mozzarella base topped with premium Aussie air-dried salted beefrocket, shaved Parmesan and a drizzle of Truffle olive oil. It’s fascinating that this pizza has quite a tasty offering. The key to a really good pizza is, of course, the dough and I was impressed it was made fresh at Vapiano. The base was super light and thin, the edges were indeed crisp and that’s how any pizza lover would like their base. *Nudge nudge*

Made of prime beef meat, bresaola sure is considered an antique product for this pizza. The staff at Vapiano massages the meat first then baptise it with a lot of salt. Next they carefully spice it up so the flavours penetrate every fibre of the meat. Vapiano’s bresaola is naturally fermented and air-dried (or aged) for 10 weeks. During the drying process for this gorgeous piece of meat it loses 40% of its original weight! That’s so COOL! It makes losing weight sound so easy. LOL

For all beer drinkers the Premium House Lager ($7) went smoothly with the rest of the meals. Named a winner at the 2014 Australia International Beer Awards, it makes sense why the blokes like it. It contains a remarkably refreshing flavour with a crisp bitter finish.

So apparently the Villa Maria Arneis ($46 Bottle) can be also interpreted as Arneis little rascal in Italy. It can be an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, as it has a light bite on the back of the throat.

To the mains and we’ve got Pasta Gamberi Con Rosso ($19.90), which is freaken made in house including the pasta made from scratch. You’ll love the rich flavor and firm texture of  prawnschillisemi-dried tomatoes and sun-dried tomato pesto. It’s a big, flavorful pasta that you can feel good about eating. Look closely at that pasta, it’s so squiggly!

Our final main we had Risotto Pollo Levanto ($19.90) that was fresh, generous, and prepared to perfection with awesome ingredients including chickenbaconred oniongarlic and chilli. It’s a true taste of risotto at its finest and brushed with parmesan and basil to enhance natural flavors. Do expect it to be creamy and filling.

It was no big deal that everyone each received White Choc Cheesecake with Salted Caramel + Honeycomb ($5.90) to finish off the spring specials. NO BIG DEAL AT ALL! It was totes like a deconstructed layered cheesecake. You get creamy white chocolate cheesecake buried underneath a generous layer of gooey salted caramel sauce and topped with honeycomb crumbles. There was difficulty digging my way to find the pieces of cheesecake, so I recommend swirling it first, then you’re set to spoil yourself.

    I’d love to try the Pasta Gamberi Con Rosso too! I’m loving a rich, red tomato base type of sauce these days and with the prawns, yum! Hoping it brings the same amazing flavours as Italy did.

    Calzone Folded Pizza for sure would be my pick! I love it when you cut into it and steamy goodness comes out.

      Good choice! You planned really well with having savory first then dessert 😀

    If they layered the cheesecake dessert with the crumbs, it defs would’ve been easier to get all bits of cheesecake on one spoon for some delicious eating hehe

      Nessy Eater responded:
      October 25, 2014 at 9:33 PM

      Totes agree! Either way, no crumbs will be left behind when it comes to dessert 😛

      Thanks for commenting! I’m sure you haven’t missed out on their pasta gamberi. There’s plenty more from where that came from 🙂

    I pass Vapiano everyday on my bus, but still haven’t had a chance to try it 😦 Heard heaps about their pastas, but I didn’t know they did amazing desserts as well! :O

      Nessy Eater responded:
      November 18, 2014 at 5:58 PM

      No way! It’s worth a visit because their pasta is no doubt made fresh in their restaurant. Dessert is awesome as well!
