Nestled in the private estate in Kovan, it was nice and quiet on a weekday afternoon. Parking was easy (no official lots but available spaces with no double yellow line) and also walkable from Kovan MRT I believe. Air conditioned seating only available for 2 tables of 4 on the inside and the rest are outdoor but sheltered with sufficient fans. Lots of nice chill vibes and clean, simple interior. Staff is attentive too.

Choice for Beyond is not too limited and I would say 3/4 of their menu. And basically all non-alcoholic drinks. I opted for the Spicy Pork Pasta ($15.90) and an artisan iced tea where I was allowed to combine three types herb/ tea of my choice in a hot ($4) or iced ($5) option.

The pasta grows on you. I wasn't impressed at first when I realised the spaghetti was too soft and definitely not al dente, but it had a sort of fusion take I wasn't expecting—a bit like Ja Jiang Mian with a hint of mala, but pasta version. So I'm wondering if this was done on purpose. It wasn't too spicy or numbing but had that slight kick just to keep you wanting more!

Overall I would say it was a very pleasant meal and would definitely come back again. The meal came up to $23 nett which was affordable as well.
