Originating in Brooklyn, New York, Motorino have now opened their first Malaysian branch in Genting Highlands’ new shopping mall, SkyAvenue. Like its other pizzerias across the globe, Motorino Malaysia’s decor is simple – shades of green, black-and-white mosaic floors, and white marble-topped tables and counters. Inside, there are two kitchens, with one dedicated specifically to pizzas. And what immediately catches your eye when you walk into the restaurant is the wood fire oven from Naples sitting in there.
The menu offers a small selection of antipasti which includes mixed greens salad tossed with balsamic vinaigrette; roasted chicken wings with lemon, mint, chilli flakes and onions; and Motorino’s Meatballs served in tomato sauce, pecorino and basil.
In keeping with tradition, Motorino Malaysia serves Neapolitan-style pizzas – pizzas with a chewy crust, cooked with mozzarella in a wood fire oven. This gives the pizzas their distinct charred crust and taste. At Motorino, you can choose from nine varieties such as the classic margherita, marinara, meatball and more. For beef lovers, try the arugula and bresaola (air-dried beef, mozzarella and parmesan). Prefer seafood? Get the cherry stone clam pizza (mozzarella, oreganata butter and parsley). For extra toppings, there is a selection to choose: onions, beef pepperoni, mozzarella, Brussels sprouts and more.
The drinks menu offers red and white wines to pair with your pizzas, but if you prefer something more casual, you can opt for bottled beer, fruit juice or soft drinks. Dessert-wise, there’s tiramisu, chocolate cake and gelato by the scoop or bowl.
