Look no further for great Italian food with a twist. Thanks to Blend It Up, the cosy and quaint restaurant situated at 325 Upper Paya Lebar Road, I had the most amazing black sesame lava cake and I’m a chocolate lover so that says plenty.
That cake kicked ass as all the other dishes I devoured for dinner did which included the too good to stop eating BBQ Honey Pork Ribs, the fresh tasting Wild Mushroom soup, the juicy and comforting Whole Grilled Squid and the chef’s favourite pizza. As I sat through dinner, all I could think about was MORE! MORE! MORE!
To top it all off, I had the pleasure of speaking to the man himself, Chef Peter Neo.
Celebrity Chef Peter Neo is no stranger in the culinary and media industry. He has 35 years of culinary experience and was the former Chef di Partie at Raffles Hotel. Following his passion, he spent time in Italy learning to cook authentic Italian cuisine from some of the best Italian chefs. Upon his return to Singapore, he joined an established local Italian restaurant chain.
He also began experimenting with fusion Italian food, creating witty and innovative dishes to appeal to local tastes.
He is the man behind local Italian restaurant Pietro Ristorante Italiano, formerly from Raffles Hotel and Bruno, and his latest venture into Italian fusion food is represented through his quaint and cosy restaurant, Blend It Up.
Chef Peter Neo is well-known for his exceptional culinary skills with numerous awards and accolades, widely sought after for food demonstrations and has previously contributed his own recipes to local magazines. He has appeared on various TV programmes, radio shows and events showcasing his culinary skills.
The quaint restaurant located along Upper Paya Lebar Road is Chef Peter Neo’s latest venture into Italian fusion food, combining local flavours with Italian dishes to bring a new face to casual dining. You no longer have to travel the globe for authentic Italian food!
Blend It Up is a play on the restaurant’s fusion concept, bringing an Asian twist to Italian cuisine.
But more importantly, it represents Chef Peter Neo’s guiding principle to only use the freshest quality ingredients, blending all of them together with their natural goodness to create the restaurant’s handcrafted soups, sauces and mains.
With a local spin on classic Italian dishes, you can find food combined with delights such as salted egg or tom yum to cater to the Singaporean taste bud.
Blend It Up brings a fresh take to Italian fusion food, and is the best place to bring your family and loved ones for a casual, relaxing, affordable and tasty meal.
