Hubby’s breakfast #017: Calzone from Peck (Takashimaya)

Ok, have lost count of hubby’s breakfasts, let’s just resume at a random number. 😉

Chicken calzone, S$2.10 each.

Located at Takashimaya’s B2 Food Village, Peck is the Milanese equivalent of Paris’s Hediard. However, their freshly baked focaccia and ciabattas seem to be more popular than their tiny selection of pricey gourmet Italian pasta, oils, vinegars, and jams.

Most of the time, I shop at the adjacent St. Leaven – both are under the same management Four Leaves bakery group – whose mass market breads and buns are easier on the pocket. Only occasionally did I cave in to the lure of Peck’s focaccia and grissini. 🙂

Pizza foldover?

Passed by again yesterday, and thought we’d give the calzone a try. Its description on the shelf tag sounded enticing: Chicken sausage with roasted bell peppers, eggplant, mushroom, and zucchini.

In reality, it sounded nicer than it tasted. The pizza-like bread was very soft, but not in a particularly nice way. Rick says it’s “very doughy”. The veggies lacked flavor. On the whole, it was kinda boring. Kinda meh.

Next time, I’ll stick to the focaccia.
