Nestled in the corner unit beside Maksansutra Gluttons Bay, is Supply & Demand – an Italian-Southeast Asian Restaurant and Bar. According to Gordon Ramsay, any place with a menu this extensive is setting itself up for failure. Well, he sure hasn’t tried the food here to say the least. With some of the menu items with names more complicated than math equations, they all embody flavours as deep and complex as they sound.

Asian Inspired Salmon Poke ($16) 

One of the latest trends in healthy eating, a poke bowl, Hawaiian for “too slice” or “cut”, is a raw fish salad which is served as appetizer or sometimes even a main. Supply & Demand’s poke bowl comes as an appetizer, with, as the name suggests, a salmon base. Dressed in a spicy bonito sauce and tossed together with cherry tomatoes, avocado, cucumber and shallots, the contrasting textures elevate the dish to another level. Served together with a corn chips, get a generous scoop salmon and let the dish do it’s own magic.

Beef Tagliata ($22)

This dish is more reminiscent of home. The strong distinct flavour of the Sesame Shoyu Dressing is complimented with the subtle nutty taste from the pine nuts. Eaten best when savoured with their homemade bread, the tender and soft beef contrasts nicely with the texture of the crispy bread.

Pesto Genovese with Shrimps ($27)

More often than not the flavour of the Pesto would overpower the dish, which you makes you “gelat” very easily. That isn’t the case here. The pesto is the star of the dish and the taste is ever present but yet not too overpowering to make you feel sick with every mouth. The fresh prawns and the al dente pasta retain their bite which adds to the depth of the dish.

1/2 & 1/2 Pizza ($27.50)

Not sure between what flavours to chose from for your pizza? Or maybe you and your friends have opposite tastes and can’t come to a compromise of which pizza to get? Then why not get 2 flavours? At Supply and Demand you are able to get 2 flavours on one pizza for just an added $2.50. We were treating to a ½ Salame Piccante & ½ Tartufo E Uovo pizza. In simpler terms, our pizza was half spicy pork salami and half truffle & egg. To us, pizza is always great, and the one here is no exception. It was a thin crust pizza which made it not too doughy and each topping had it’s chance to shine as you would get a different set of ingredients with each bite.

Calzone Pizza ($24)

Craving for a pizza but still want to get something different? Then opt to get your Pizza as a Calzone. We had our Calzone filled with Ham & Cheese, or, Prosciutto e Funghi. The simplicity of our filling really allowed us to better taste the dough of the calzone, which was absolute pastry heaven. The doughy was flaky and fell apart in your mouth, and the creamy filling added to it’s oozy goodness. Definitely a must try when you’re hear and one of our favourites.

Drinks

Supply & Demand also boasts a wide range of drinks, be it alcoholic or no alcoholic. If you are feeling a little more fancy that night, treat yourself to Blue is the Warmest Colour ($18)  – Gin mixed with Elderflower Syrup, Blue Curacao and Lime Juice, and the drink comes served with a rubber ducky!

If you are feeling like something more along the lines of a beer but yet not just as simple as a beer, get one of their Beeritas. A bottle of beer/cider that is presented upside down in a Margarita. As you drink from the Margarita, the beer/cider will mix into the Margarita to combine both drinks. We got the Strawberry Swing ($28) – Strawberry Margarita + Apple Cider, which wasn’t too strong in both the sweet and alcoholic department.

And if you just up for a simple drink, we recommend Tropical Thunder ($8) – Flavoured Fizz with Lychee, Stewed Peach, Pineapple and Lemon. The refreshing drink is a great way to end of your day as you kick back and enjoy the view along the bay.
