The very first time that I ever had Vapiano was all the way back in 2011, in a city named Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina. I was travelling throughout Europe and stopped along the way where my cousins were living. She introduced me to the BEST restaurant EVER! I was super sad, knowing that we didn't have a Vapiano back at home. But a few years past, Vapiano finally landed in Brisbane & the Gold Coast!
Vapiano is a German restaurant which offers Italian food, referred to as pasta and pizza bar. Vapiano food is all freshly made - the pasta is hand made which you can mix and match with different sauces. My favourite foods to order is (but not all at once);
+ Pesto Basilico Pasta (freshly made basil pesto with roasted pine nuts).
+ Pesto Con Spinaci Pizza (Baby spinach leaves, marinated tomatoes, with creamy pesto + mozzarella),
+ Margherita Pizza (the Italian classic combining homemade tomato sauce + mozzarella).
+ Insalate Caesar (fresh coz lettuce, crunch croutons, parmesan + homemade caesar dressing).
A Vapiano card is required, which can be picked up at the the entrance. Then the order gets recorded onto the card once you tap the machine at the counter, where the chefs are cooking at the same time as taking orders. Then the card is taken to the entrance contour for the payment at the end!
Vapiano has the yummiest desserts as well, especially the Death by Chocolate (Italian style chocolate cake). There are other desserts, such as; Tiramisu Della Casa (sponge soaked in coffee and liqueur with a delicious blend of mascarpone cream and cocoa), Panna Cotta (delicious blend of vanilla and cream topped with seasonal sauce) and Creama Di Fragola (fresh strawberries with a blend of mascarpone and fresh cream).
