Black Truffle Mushroom Cream Pasta

$20.00 ยท 4 Reviews

The aroma was pretty strong too as I could smell it before it arrived at the table. But the highlight (for me) is always the mushrooms, of course! ๐Ÿ˜†

Love the combination of truffle oil, mushrooms and cheesy pasta, but I still prefer the more flavourful rendition by Cicely Kitchen. The portion and ingredients for this dish are generous though ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Thanks to fellow intern @kunhong, we got the best of both worlds. We ordered two different pastas and decided to share them 50-50. The truffle was just too amazing, despite eating mouthfuls again and again, it wasn't overwhelming. I secretly wished the mushrooms were of larger slices as each slice packed a great deal of flavor! The photo doesn't do justice to the pasta, it was creamy and the kind of creamy that I personally enjoy; a smooth taste yet not too oily. I am already looking forward to my next visit to this place to try out their other delicacies! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹


Unfortunately, the location isn't the most ideal, but if you look hard enough you'll find it. Quite the hidden jem.

I tried 2 dishes - these aren't their best sellers, but they were enough for me to return to try the rest of the menu out. (Says quite a lot)

Due to my partner's dietary restrictions, I didn't order anything with red meat or seafood - so I ordered these 2 pasta dishes. They look strikingly similar, but are worlds apart in taste.

Black Truffled Mushroom Cream Pasta ($20, left)
& Housemade Cilantro Pesto Mushroom Pasta ($17, right). Prices are nett; no GST or service charge. "Monte with Butter to finish", which the waitress didn't know what it meant (but cheerfully went to check), means "tossed in butter to finish". We requested the chef not do this & he kindly obliged. That's great, being able to cater to people with different dietary needs.

The Pesto Pasta had a great kick to it, with a decent level of spiciness that wasn't too difficult to swallow. Truffled Cream Pasta was my favourite, with the cream not too overbearing & the truffle smell & taste definitely distinct. For both dishes, mushrooms were hearty & juicy. If I had to choose, I'd order the Truffle Cream Pasta again-- but bear in mind, my dishes weren't tossed in butter; I am quite confident that the Pesto Pasta would've been less dry if tossed in butter.

I already can't wait for my next visit!
