Couple more days to catch @nudedles.4 x @iammirkofebbrile for their pop-up collab at Chinatown Complex Food Centre.

Thought the queue would have settled down by now but no guys, it didn’t 😂 We got 1 of each of everything and our favourites were the classic Rigatoni alla Carbonara ($9) and Linguine al Pesto ($7). These were on point. No other tips on how to catch them, but to get here and be in the queue probably before 930am - ask around for the queue so that you don’t miss it!

Easy pick for us as a sharing appetiser cause we’re all fans of burrata. Pretty big sized burrata on a bed of arugula with cherry tomatoes and house-made balsamic vinaigrette.

Tribeca is a multi menu concept bistro and this was from Pasta Table’s menu. Thank you @tribecasg for having us! ✨

These calamari were thicker crusted and had lime aioli for dipping. Wasn’t as strongly seasoned!

This was a crowd pleaser with its bright flavours! Enjoyed this a lot as our appetiser, it had zucchini, grapes, blueberries, walnuts, capers and shaved parmesan. Kale was crunchy.

Boneless chicken wings stuffed with black pepper cream cheese that oozed out on cut. Meat was pretty tender, though more bland than we hoped for - is potentially a good side to share!

This Burnt Cabbage was one of our favourites of our meal at the newly opened Tipo Pizzeria e Trattoria. Initially planned to visit their (also relatively new) Novena outlet to try the popular pastas, but saw that this new space of theirs not only has pastas, but pizzas and lots of other sides! Prices lean more to the higher end.

The cabbage was distinctly smoky while still retaining some of its natural sweetness. Pair it with their parmesan cream and crunchy puffed barley, and it was a very easy dish to finish. This was stated as one of their vegetarian mains - but thought it could be just a bit bigger in portion.

We were here for dinner, but saw that they offer more affordable lunch sets that come with cold brew teas, similar to the other Tipo outlets.

Pasta & Co’s a relatively new pasta spot tucked in Fortune Centre, just next to the escalator on the 2nd floor. Specialising in handmade pastas, choose from 4 pasta types - roasted capsicum with paprika spaghetti, beetroot fusilli, pumpkin rigatoni and squid ink tagliatelle: to go with their menu of 10 pasta dishes (there’s also 2 risottos)!

We had their Cacio E Pepe with capsicum spaghetti. Haven’t had that many cacio e pepe to compare properly, but we quite enjoyed how the peppery notes gradually grew distinct yet not overbearing, allowing the cheesiness to still take presence. Would have liked this just a lot less oily though. Prices lean on higher end.

Creamy, very earthy and loaded with a variety of mushrooms of different textures! Loved this for how well seasoned it was, how the rice was cooked perfectly and that it wasn’t too heavy. Only gripe was that the portion was much, much smaller than we expected.

There’s Burpple Beyond here, but make sure you call to reserve before dropping by. They’ve also recently swapped to 1 for 1s on a smaller fixed menu.

While the mash was smooth and creamy, it lacked a bit more butteriness. The truffle wasn’t as strong in taste, compared to its aroma.

Was looking forward to this the most but it was very disappointing ☹️ Gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese, parmigiana reggiano in cream and walnuts. Gnocchi weren’t as light and fluffy as we hoped for and the whole dish was overwhelmed by the stale walnuts.

Was most looking forward to having this schiacciata again! Unfortunately, while the schiacciata had a good crunch, was quite disappointed that it wasn’t as stuffed as we remembered from the last time, hence pretty thin.

Saved this spot for a long time and just got to pop by to try! Went with the set lunch and it was very value for money. Apart from this carbonara, they have 4 others to choose from - Creamy Chicken ($9.90), Puttanesca ($9.90), Arrabiata ($11.90) and Ragu Ala Bolognese ($11.90). Each also comes with a refreshing cup of cold brew earl grey tea infused with lemon and rosemary, originally priced at $5.90.

Tipo serves handmade pasta and you get to pick from 3 daily offerings upon order. I went with the squid ink mafalde. You also get to choose to top up parmesan cheese, chilli flakes and olive oil at no extra costs, unless you want an extra portion of any. I added the first two and enjoyed my plate. Would have just liked the mafalde a touch bit less soft, but the cheesy and creamy sauce coated each strand nicely. The chunky mushrooms came in a satisfying portion as well!

Pasta upsize is at $3, and set lunches are available from 12pm to 4pm on weekdays, excluding PHs.
