Motorino @Sky Avenue, Resort World Genting

Hailing from Brooklyn, Motorino opened its first Malaysian Branch in Genting Highlands, this being ninth branch out of 5 countries. The simple no frills entrance to the restaurant is a precursor to the interior. Black and white tiles, small circular tables with steel maroon chairs await the diners. The emphasis seems to be on delivering good food. The aroma of freshly baked pizzas emerging from two gigantic wood-fired ovens located strategically at the back of the restaurant wafts through the entire eatery. If you are a die-hard pizza lover, Motorino is the place you want to be at.
Their pizza dough is freshly made every day by well-trained chefs. Only the freshest ingredients go into it. The entire dough is then place onto a giant flat ladle. 

Customers are then treated to the side of the chef side of pizza being cooked before their eyes. The result is a tender melt in your mouth pizza filled with succulent juicy pieces of meat and dripping cheese on a rich tomato based sauce. Sink your teeth onto a slice and the melted cheese, staying true to a pizza advertisement, is pulled long and temptingly.
Motorino introduces 9 types of pizzas in their menu and I will introduce their 6 best selling pizzas to you. This is the Del Popolo pizza which consists of tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, parsley, olives, onion and curved anchovies. The price is RM49.00 (member)/RM54.00 (non-member). You can opt for additional toppings such as extra cheese, extra meat or extra vege which starts from RM2.00 - RM8.00 per topping.
Meatball @RM56.00 (member)/RM61.00 (non-member) - Another tomato based pizza with the toppings of mozzarella, chicken meat balls and basil.
Arugula & Bresaola @RM59.00 (member)/RM64.00 (non-member) - This is one of their premium pizza which has the freshest air-dried beef with a combination of two types of cheese in it which are mozzarella and parmesan. 
Amatriciana @RM48.00 (member)/RM53.00 (non-member) - A mixture of tomato sauce, mozzarella, chicken sausage, scallion, pecorino and fresh chili. If you are a person who prefer spicy flavor in your pizza, this is the only pizza that is available to suit your taste bud.

Margherita @RM47.00 (member)/RM52.00 (non-member) - Tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil, pecorino and extra virgin olive oil.

Pepperoni Pizza @RM58.00 (member)/RM63.00 (non-member) - It is a combination of tomato sauce, mozzarella, beef pepperoni, extra virgin olive oil, fresh chili, sea salt and pecorino. Pecorino is a hard cheese which is made from ewe's milk.
Besides pizza, the restaurant also offers other fare such as salad, clams and meat balls. We sampled the roasted chicken wing with a fine dressing of lemon, mint, chili flakes and onions. The dressing was a perfect accompaniment to the chicken wing. The meat was so tender that it fell off the bone when I sank my teeth into it and the various ingredients in the dressing led to an explosion of flavors in my mouth. 

Do not expect for a fine dining experience in Motorino; Just be prepared for honest to goodness, earthy, wholesome cooking. If you develop a sudden craving for pizza at Genting, this is one place you should not miss.
