Rice and Dough in Venice Grand Canal is the just the restaurant I have been looking for. It specializes on serving carbs on carbs on carbs. To put it simply, their best sellers are pizzas and sushi rolls.
Located in the newly opened Venice Grand Canal in McKinley Hill, Taguig, this is one of the few restaurants that first opened in the new Venice Like Mall.
Everything seems grand and straight forward. It reminded me of TORCH but they have more pizzas and rolls that scream new. Why Torch? Well, It is one of their newest concept.
The meal must start with PARMECORN ON A COB. Grilled, butter, cayenne, and parmesan. Grilled Corn can never go wrong.
After going through the motion, PIZZA must be ordered.
If you want to be safe, you would go for the TARTUFATA. Basically Bacon, peppers and cheese with truffle oil. A white type of pizza, if you will and you can never go wrong with truffle and bacon. The FUNGHI pizza is a mix of mushrooms and gorgonzola. It was okay. Among these though, I enjoyed the PROSCIUTTINA most. The prosciutto gave the pizza a saltier edge with balanced out the peppers and the brie.
Also, you could make your own pizza. A checklist with different ingredients are given to the diners. From there, they could pick whatever they want to put on it. Be creative and enjoy.
Moving on to my personal favorite, SUSHI!
The WORLD WAR ROLL has a unique presentation. Rarely do you see sushi being served with fire. The roll has soft shell crab, kani, tamago, unagi, shrimps and tuna.
My top pick though would be the PERFECT CATCH. Raw salmon and cream cheese rolled over panko crumbs with bonito flakes. The salmon worked well with cream cheese just like LOX. If you are familiar with this spread, it is usually used for bagels but this time around it is with rice. Delicious!
For the very first time in Metro Manila and in recent history, you could also make your own SUSHI. Be creative and just tick the box of whatever you may want to put in.
For the mains, RICE and DOUGH has a lot to offer.
