Ah, my comfort food pasta - Prawn Aglio Olio ($12 nett) with a special request to have no bacon & they willingly obliged. Spaghetti done perfectly al dente, not too oily & a nice generous helping of mushrooms & juicy prawns.

Parking is free on Sundays which was so convenient for me because it was dinner time & I had to fill petrol at the nearby SPC. #winningatadulting

Both pastas were very good!!! It's $12 each
Liked the carbonara especially as the sauce was not to heavy, the egg is also a nice addition


A no-brainer, laid back place for decent western food in the West.
The risotto and pasta were great but most importantly, I had a great companion who was there to hear me out.
P.S. Thanks for the dinner treat!

Nothing beats a hearty and value-for-money meal at TCB when I can’t decide where to eat on a lazy weekend.

An alfresco dining bar in a coffeeshop setting. I was looking forward to try the salmon pesto spaghetti, only to realize they have actually revamped the menu upon reaching.

Personally, vongole is a safe choice. A plate full of baby clams swimming in white wine sounds especially appealing, I love pouring the white wine over the clams before eating for stronger flavor absorption. Perhaps spaghetti goes really well as a 'soup-based' pasta, like this one that's cooked till al dente. And Greens should never be left out! Parsley - the reason behind a mild bitter, leafy herbal flavor amidst the seafood.

Go early to avoid the long queue!

Prawn Aglio Olio ($9.50 nett)

On the drier side (this I don't mind, but some might), wish there were more spaghetti because it is perfectly al dente πŸ‘Œ Prawns were juicy 🍀 On the whole, not sure if I'd order this again, though... πŸ’­

Salmon Pesto Spaghetti ($10)

I rarely order fish, but salmon is my favourite & I love the way The Carving Board cooks theirs. So tender & moist, very juicy.... Mmm...

I'm also sold on their pasta!!! I'm not a pasta elitist; don't care so much if homemade or whatever, but one thing that really pisses me off is SOGGY pasta. This was perfectly al dente. & served hot, like how it should be. I can't wait to return & try their other pastas πŸ˜„
