For a puny café operating out of little more than a hole in the wall, @carraracafesg serves up some excellent entrées. I would like to present the material evidence in my case: their Signature Chili Crab Pasta ($17.90 nett). I’ll get this disclaimer right outta the way first: it’s definitely NOT the most memorably piquant pasta in Singapore, but it’s serviceably sumptuous.⠀

The crumbs on the top are honest to God crabmeat, and there’s an ample allotment of it in here. A medley of squid rings, clams & prawns complete the quartet, and they’re portioned quite generously too. The cast of The Little Mermaid are given a thorough toss along with the slightly over al dente spaghetti in the charmer of a chili crab gravy.⠀

Speaking about the sapid sauce, it’s got quite a bit of ra-ra when it comes to spice. It’s not as sweet as the usual chili crab sauce, instead veering into salty & spicy territory. The consistency is viscous, slowly sliding off the back of my spoon in big blorps (I invented that word 5 seconds ago, now shut up) instead of a runny flow. Said sauce is also extremely eggy, and you will find an abundance of egg bits in every spoonful.⠀

In conclusion, with stellar spaghettis like their Signature Chili Crab Pasta, Carrara is punching way above their weight class when it comes to their main courses. This tiny café has got some serious ra-ra, I tell ya.

Carrara Cafe, kinda low-key in the cafe scene but high-key famous for its supposedly award-winning gelato, actually offers pretty tasty grub as well.

We started off with one of their creations, the Premium Truffle Breakfast Pasta and had absolutely no regrets. The truffle-infused carbonara pasta was made al dente, complemented well by the juicy mushrooms, delightful poached egg and huge grilled sausage.

The highlight for me was the bacon, smoky and caramelised with a hint of sweetness, which blended amazingly with the savoury pasta.

Sawasdee Tom Yum Pasta (SGD16.90++): The pasta was so flavourful with a seafood fragrance 😍 It was a bit soft for me though as I prefer my pasta a little bit harder on the al dente side, but my mom loved it. Overall, very well done!

Generally, I would say that all of their food is pretty good. Other things ordered were the Signature chilli crab pasta (SGD17.90++) and the Smoked salmon cheese rosti (SGD16.90++) - they all tasted really good. My sister said that the rosti tasted even better than Marche’s one 😮 and the cheese just made it all the better 🤩

Was just sliiiiightly disappointed at their gelato bc there weren’t that many flavours available. Taste wise was kinda the same as many other ice cream places we’ve been to. Their waffles (SGD6) was amazing though 🥰 Crunch on the outside and soft on the inside. Definitely not the same as the other cafes!

Pastas were decent and looked rather small in portion. Mentaiko sauce did not have the fish roe and was not as good as expected. But still worth it with the burpple beyond deal! No service charge and gst!

I was really impressed with the salted egg chicken waffle and really enjoyed this dish! 2 pieces of deep fried chicken glazed with thick salted egg sauce was sandwiched between 2 crispy and tasty waffles! Chicken was tender and the skin was crispy. Waffles went well with the maple syrup too. Salted egg sauce was delicious! Potato wedges were decent and was quite large in portion.

Tomyam seafood pasta ($13.90) and salted egg chicken & waffle ($13.90) , quite worth using 1 for 1 deal.
Cannot make a reservation if you using burpple deal. But overall the price and the environment is quite desirable.
