The food and ambience at Punch is incredible although the staff seemed a little overworked during our visit. But nevertheless, good service.

They have a really pretty garden-scape at the rear of the cafe which is great for photos too! ๐Ÿ“ธ: @michellechun_

Finally got to trying Punchโ€™s heavier meals for lunch, which really turned my perception of the cafe around! The aglio olio is served with three large prawns and a good amount of scallops, all cooked to plump, juicy perfection. But more than that, the spaghetti is dressed with mildly spicy, garlicky flavour in every strand, with a sprinkling of parsley and breadcrumbs for extra oomph and crunch.

A hearty, value for money & comfort aglio olio! For $19, you get 3 tiger prawns (cooked perfectly) & sweet, plump scallops with a good portion of pasta. Loved that they were generous with the garlic & parsley. The added toasted breadcrumbs was a really good move as it created more texture to the dish. I could definitely see myself coming back here for more. โค๏ธโค๏ธ

This aglio olio pasta is my favorite of all my favorite pastas.

Sitting here whilst waiting, the anticipation builds up. The aroma of it being prepared was like a savory perfume...so seductive. After afew minutes, the pasta was brought to me. The look : a golden yellow orangey hue from the pasta, red bright spots from the chilli padi, green specks of herby goodness and light beige from the little bulb that scares off vampires.

The taste : pasta cooked aldente. Somehow it had a touch of smokyness. Prawns were small (wished it was slightly bigger), a tad overdone and scallops seared to golden brown on one side. There were lotsa crunchy garlic pieces which had a wonderful nutty flavor. But my palate was actually screaming for more heat from the chillis.

Prawns and scallops aside, I could just down the pasta on its own. The aroma, the saltyness, the oiliness, the garlicky & the umaminess were just simply addictive.

Truly enjoyed my date with pasta but I missed the ever smiling face of Vincent @punch.gram

Does not look like the usual aglio olio. This prawn n scallop pasta had a deeper color as compared to normal aglio olio. Cooked aldente and tossed in loads of garlic and chilli padi. Tiger prawns were a little small and a tad over. What was most important was the pasta itself. Seasoning spot on. There was a certain umaminess finish. However a bit more chilli padi woukd have been welcoming to give it that extra kick.

I'm a simple man. Gimme some carbs! ๐Ÿ˜ @punch.gram is an extremely clean and simplistic space, clearly a great place to see and be seen. ๐Ÿ˜œ

A dish I saw quite a few people slurping up on the way in, the aglio olio was perfectly al dente and flavourful. The prawns were smaller than expected though for tiger prawns and the scallops were a little jelly-like. But we deffo enjoyed the fragrant pasta, one of the better dishes here! ๐Ÿด
