We haven't eaten at a cafe for a long time, so I conceded haha. Thankfully the rosti was very good. Crispy all around. The sausage was fine but hey it's just sausage.

A cheaper ice cream waffle around, although I thought it's cheaper than this. Our scoop is lemongrass blue pea. The flavour was better than expected, a very optimal lemongrass that avoided overly strong. However, note that this flavour doesn't work with waffle. The lighter profile was lost when eaten together.

We haven't eaten at a cafe for a long time, so I conceded haha. A signature. I like fusion food so this worked for me. To make chicken chop's skin crispy is also quite impressive. No complaints about the thick slab. I already don't like potato wedges and these were worse.

Had this Sausage Cheese Swiss Rosti set lunch for $18.90++ (comes with iced lemon tea). Rosti’s seasoning is a bit salty, though I don’t think it had to do with the cheese cause I enjoyed that part a lot 😋 sides were just normal, including the sausage, making it a bit overpriced for me. There were other cheaper set lunch options (from $13.90++) which might be more worth the price.

Ordered a scoop of Earl Grey Lavender as well ($2.90++, special price if you order a set lunch). This has a strong early grey taste which I really liked. Very creamy too.

Place was packed when I came, but it still had a very charming and homey cafe ambience. Would probably come back and stay here for a long time and just eat loads of gelato 😂

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.
