Thanks to #burpplebeyond, our fri-date got a whole lot better with pastas at a cosy corner in The Grandstand, Turf City.

Unfortunately, the stores in PasarBella have closed down, so there’s lesser options available. Thankfully, burpple beyond brought us here to find a hidden gem!

With 1 for 1, you’d get a choice of pizza or pasta! I’d recommend pizzas if you’re going in a big group as each pizza can feed at least 2 pax! If not, the pasta is perfect for just 1 person.

The gnocchi boscaiola is handmade gnocchi, cooked in creamy tomato sauce, with comes with crispy fried bacon & mushrooms. A fairly simple dish, but extremely flavourful & aromatic, from the mixture of fried bacon & mushrooms. Only downside was that the gnocchi was slightly overcooked, which ended up being a little mushy. But otherwise, it was a pretty good dish!

Side note, for a Friday evening (approx 7pm), it was a full house and we spotted a couple of tables which were reserved, so reservations are recommended! If you’re using burpple beyond, do remember to call in & not use Chope (cause they consider it as double points entries).
