The folks behind Zsofi Tapas Bar must have felt selling whole pizzas are so passé, hence the resolution to offer pizzas by the Slice. And just in case you think you’ll be chomping on the conventional pre-baked and re-baked slices, perhaps you should pay more attention to this ‘pizza reformation’. Slice pledged to liberate you from the tension among you and your friends when choosing the toppings of a traditional-sized pie so rejoice in the fact that every individual will have an 8-inch by 5-inch they call their own. Over and above, thanks to their flash-bake ovens, no slices here are served cold or stale. Whilst customisation is not allowed, selecting from the santa-claus-list of flavours could just be the toughest decision in your life.
If you’d mistaken Slice for Subway, we wouldn’t blame you, moreover the unmistakeable smell of baked pies should really tell you otherwise. Besides, yellow dominates this eatery. A sense of fun and playfulness pervade this place as you step into this chatter-filled interior coming from students. Walk up to the counter and order your slices just like how you did at the sandwich fast food restaurant. Also, couple up your pies with the different combos available. And as you load on the carbs shamelessly, do admire at the walls adorned with iconic characters photoshopped to do the Slice Salute.
We say time to pig in boys.
1.Caramelised onions, 5:
Vegetarians be pleased with this unique non-meat slice: Caramelised Onions. This pie came with a mish-mash of juicy onions and charred walnuts flakes randomly scattered all over the rectangular-shaped crust. It was a good jumble of sweet and savory in one bite, although there’s nothing much for us to shout about. If you like to play with your food, you could still rearrange the onions and walnuts, which hinted the lack of cheese on top. The crust was really a normal thin bread-like carbohydrates.
2.Potent prawn, 8:
We appreciate the generous number of prawns caught in a web of mozzarella upon the pizza base, giving us more bang for our buck. Spot a pinch of dried chili embedded amongst the sea of prawns, which did not help much in the overall taste. While the freshness of the prawns surely did not disappoint, the potent prawn did not stand out the way we expected it to be.
3. Tom yum, 8:
The tom yum will blow you away with a pie chocked full of shrimps, squids and mussels blanketed in a sour-spicy tom yum sauce. The sea creatures were surprisingly fresh and we would be happier with a more flavourful sauce to company with. This was the best out of the three.
Tomatoes must be cheap, hence the super-saucy affair, which eventually devolved into a soggy sticky mess. Though plastic utensils are provided, we recommend chowing them down the epic meal time way. Although there were several hits and misses, the concept itself is cool enough to give it another shot. While the flash-bake oven boasts to bake a pie within 2 minutes, expect waiting time to be much longer during peak hours; afterall, there’s only one oven. Good news: No Gst or service charge here. Pet peeve: you might reek of parfum de pizza in this air-conditioned eatery.

quite a good idea on making pizza palatable for individuals - the pizza here comes in a rectangular SLICE, just nice for one person! instead of worrying about having to share a whole pizza with others, you can just grab-and-go for this.
i suppose i dont have much to say for this place actually haha. i ordered the hawaiian holiday ($6.50) which is your average hawaiian pizza! :) pretty good i would say. i quite liked how the crust was quite thin, but firm and pretty substantial.
Roaming the streets on lesser known parts of Singapore, my usual walk from Bugis to Dhoby Ghout and vice verse, if I'm too lazy to take the train. I chanced upon this place called Slice - the Pizza Revolution at PoMo, along the same stretch as TCC. It was about 7.30pm and I was looking for a place to have dinner with my girlfriend.
We didn't plan to go there but what drew us in was their poster of the sun-dried tomato with fetta cheese pizza. However, to my disappointment, they ran out of sun-dried tomatoes and I resorted to the next best alternative, which were Pepperoni Power & Salmon Rocket. Not point trying something common, when you have an opportunity to try something unique.
It was like a fast food setting, where you ordered your own food, and collect it when its ready. Table and chair layout were similar to that of Subway (also located downstairs). But what made it unique was their décor, the walls and counter were plastered with popular figures of the modern world, some for the right reasons and other for controversial reasons.
Now for the food, our Pepperoni Power came first and it was slightly over cooked, with the sides a little too brown. Thankfully it was just pepperoni and I guess a few seconds more in the oven wouldn't hurt. The taste of the pepperoni was not very strong, I would liked if it had a fuller body, to pack a punch and remind me of what I'm eating.
As for the Salmon Rocket, it came soon after and it a relatively generous amount of smoked salmon with rocket (vegetable). I'm guessing that the dough was cooked with the tomato paste and then the salmon and rocket were added, to avoid ruining the natural smoky flavour of the smoked salmon.
To accompany the pizzas, we topped us a set, a soft drink and soup. We only had a 'choice' of tomato basil soup, as the other two potions were sold out. Hint of advice, is to come earlier if you do not want to limit your choice.
Overall the place is a nice find, where you can even take away you pizza - they have a take-away ordering section, just like a car-drive through but a walk-through in this case. They display their pizza in those displace fridges, usually used in bakeries and confectioneries, funny seeing uncooked pizzas in them though. There in lays their secret to how they are able to churn out the pizzas so fast. After ordering, the remove the earlier prepared pizza from the display and into the oven. The other secret is their dough, for it is thin and similar to a biscuit texture, so takes a shorter time to cook. It is a nice combination for the 'lack-of-time' working Singaporean needing to grab a bite quick. But being an Italian food person, I would be more than happy to sink my teeth into a thick chewy cheesy dough.
