Thank you #burpplebeyond for the keeping some of these restaurants in contact! We were able to enjoy Amano's amazing pastas, at a 1 for 1 deal.

I called in advance to order so that I didn't have to wait too long at the restaurant. Unfortunately, some of the dishes that I wanted were out of stock, but nonetheless, it was still a hearty meal!

The standouts from this meal was the Mushroom Risotto & the Tortellini!

The Unami earthy flavours of the risotto filled the air as we opened each container. While it doesn't look like much, it tastes a whole lot better.

The tortellini (looks more like ravioli) was packed with spinach & ricotta & each piece was stuffed yet perfectly sealed. The balance of the sauce & the ravioli was just right!

If you have a chance, do go for their pizzas as well! Worth every penny!

Tomato Base, Burrata & Basil - 3 simple ingredients, but becomes a perfect mix on the pizza.

Each slice was tangy, yet savoury, and with a hint of herbs. Definitely a slice that you can chow down easily, this Burrata pizza stole our hearts and stomach the second it hit our tongues.

What I enjoyed as well was the thin, light and airy crust, which was hand-pulled before being thrown in the oven!

Best part, this is on burpple beyond, and is part of the 1 for 1 offerings!

Tucked at the second floor of Bishan Stadium & overlooking the track is Good Bites, a pretty, aesthetically pleasing space serving up decent bites in this central area.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we managed to get 1 for 1 pastas from their option of 6. Apart from that, they do also serve up burgers & healthy bowls!

For their Seafood Aglio Olio ($14.50), it comes with fresh prawns, squid, mussels, lightly tossed in olive oil & garlic with spaghetti. However, we requested for pure prawns as my sister doesn't take the other 2 & they kindly obliged with additional fees (yay, plus point)!

Pasta was slightly overcooked, but came as a decent portion with fresh plump juicy prawns! Flavour & taste wise was spot on, without being too oily, definitely a dish to have if you're looking for something light & simple.

As the name states, this is possibly a dish you'd want to indulge in to feel better in the event of a bad break up & you'd likely will.

The break up steak is made of a 300g aged ribeye, aged in-house, served with 2 types of salt - garlic salt & smoked chilli salt, mashed potatoes, twice sautéed mushrooms & roasted carrots.

It may look simple, but the cooked at medium rare, the ribeye is so tender & soft, it almost melts in your mouth. The 2 salts (made in-house) provided helps to heighten the flavour by just a notch, making it super easy for you to wipe this plate clean!

The sides that comes with the steak compliments it pretty well & definitely fills you to the brim!

Definitely something for you to try if you're a steak lover! #noragrats

If you've heard of LINO, you'd know they have recently ventured into having a pasta bar! Located within Shaw House, LINO Pasta Bar serves up simple 3 or 4 course set menus for lunch and dinner, at affordable rates of $24++ or $30++ respectively.

For each set, you can also choose to top up for selected items of each category!

For the burrata, it comes with tomatoes & homemade pesto & served with a side of toasted focaccia.

The condiments were extremely well-balanced & complimented the burrata perfectly! Only downside was that there was not enough pesto! However, the servers were kind enough to provide us an extra portion upon request! The pesto was a crowd pleaser with hints of herbs & crushed nuts.

Shared my thoughts about the finished product in my previous post, but here's how it starts.

Never would you have imagined how each component complimented each other so so well. A definite must order if you are a burrata fan!

A stand out dish of the night was our starter, the Salted Fish Buffalo Mozzarella Burratina. Essentially, your usual burrata suspects, with a twist of salted fish.

Yes, salted fish. Deep fried salted fish is added to the mix to give this pop a different dimension!

The dish is first served separately, and plated right in front of you. Each piece of thinly sliced & crispy foccacia is used as a base to piece together the burrata, roasted cured tomatoes, a drizzle of honey, topped with bits of salted egg & black sesame.

what you get is an amazing mix of sweet, savoury, salty, as well as loads of crunch beyond your imagination.

Not traditional, but so so good.

Finally made it down to Eleven Strands after hearing so much about it! & boy did they not disappoint.

Thanks to Burpple beyond, we managed to get our pasta at 1 for 1! We ordered the Grilled Prawns Pesto Pasta and Squid Ink Pasta, with a side of truffle Kombu fries & it was quite a full meal!

I love that they gave us the option of choosing our choice of pasta. I decided on fusilli as I wanted every curve and angle to hold on to the pesto sauce.

As the plate touched the table, I knew I was in for a treat! I first caught slight hints of toasted pine nuts & with every mouthful of pasta, the flavours grew more! Their version was pesto was on a lighter side and they added a pretty generous amount of olive oil, however, it wasn’t too oily. Even after finishing up the bits of pasta and prawns, I used the fries to wipe up the remaining puddle of oil as it was just soooo tasty!

An Italian classic (I would think) is a squid ink pasta. As a child, you’d have seen it on tv & wonder how people got their teeth stained black while eating pasta. & it’s only till much later that you discover squid ink pasta.

Cooked simple in squid ink & white wine sauce, the linguine was served al dante, with rings of squid, heaps of garlic and came pipping hot.

A fairly simple dish, but a satisfying one nonetheless as you slurp down this black beauty.

Thanks to burpple beyond, our total bill of 2 pastas was $24 #worthit

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).

For any museum goer, you’d notice FFT tucked away in the corner of National Museum, where whiffs of coffee & food will carry you right to their doorstep.

The usual suspects of brunch is available, but there’s also a variety of mains & pastas.

For affordable dishes that can’t really go wrong, I went for the spicy pulled pork linguine. Stressed pieces of pulled pork were tossed in aglio olio styled linguine, topped with cherry tomatoes, a bacon slice & a sunny side up.

What better way to pair your crab meat aglio olio but with a squeeze of lemon juice and some heat from the chillies and pepper?

The Naughty Chef creates simple basics and allows you to customise by adding different ingredients in (of course with a top up in cost as well). But to keep it simple, I decided to have it as is and it sure was simple yet refreshing.

Chunks of crab meat was shredded and added into their al dente aglio olio before adding that squeeze of lemon to give you that citrus bite amidst the oil-based pasta.
