Don't you hate it when you order a truffle dish and you don't taste even a hint of truffle? NOT WITH THIS DISH because you definitely smell and taste the truffle oil. The mushrooms were sautéed perfectly and were really yummy. I expected the sauce/base to be more like an aglio olio pasta dish but it tasted like mac and cheese instead so I'd ask them to cut back on the cheese if you don't want your pasta to be too heavy.

Butternut Risotto [$15.90]
Consist of calrose rice, butternut squash, shimeiji mushrooms, honey glazed croutons, permasen cheese, spring onions. Fit for vegetarian people looking for another alternative. It's really tasty and the flavour doesn't overwhelm. 😋

I like that the sauce was sufficient to mix thoroughly with the spaghetti. But halfway through i felt it was too creamy and 'jelak'. They were generous with the chicken chunks though.

Lesson learnt – don’t get your hopes up. Forget sea urchin – it's been a very long while since I last received a pasta dish this diluted, with saltiness level on a seemingly artificial side. Saw other reviews out there & others said it was too creamy instead? Let’s give a benefit of a doubt that they did try to tone it down but I guess for this case, consistency should be key. I did enjoy other dishes from here, but this is not one of them. Sorry.

This pasta dish was part of the $25+ iftar set menu during Ramadan 2016 (in addition to the soup of the day- a velveteen mushroom soup with small chunks of mushrooms, and an iced Moroccan apple tea, which did not exhibit any apple notes in my opinion....). The generous chunks of crab meat was sweet and the linguine cooked al dente, however I found it too spicy for my palate (although my boyfriend didn't mind the spice). I've tried chili crab pastas in several other cafes and I'd definitely come back for this. I just wish the portion size would be a liiiiiitle bigger though 😄

Essentially an immensely gratifying bowl of umami wonder - the warm, pork floss-esque, prawny, salty and surprisingly sweet rice is marvellous mouth fodder in its own right, but then the slithery, soft seared salmon comes and delivers a killer tail flop, and the omega-3 oily goodness will linger on your lips for days. 4.3/5

The peppery, garlicky and well-oiled linguine was zhup-ly wet with anticipation while elsewhere the delicate, gossamer-skinned cubes of foie gras deflate marvellously in your mouth, revealing their indulgently, lusciously gooey softness within. 4.1/5
