Unfortunately mains are only served till 5 nov, with the remaining 2 days retailing furnitures and brewing some cuppa ☕️. The smoked duck carbonara comprised of spaghetti tossed in a creamy sauce, along with copious chunks of smoked duck chopped into cubes , sliced mushrooms, topped with a raw yolk and sprinkled with garnishes of Parmesan flakes. Despite being a cream based pasta, the carbonara here was surprisingly not too overwhelming, with a substantial thick, creamy sauce that I felt would be manageable by one pax for consumption. The spaghetti was done to a slight al dente consistency, providing a pleasant firmness to the bite. The tender smoked duck slices were chopped into tiny little cubes which provided easier consumption. Along with chewy sliced mushrooms that added a subtle earthy note, the pasta was decent yet enjoyable with a good balance of noodles:ingredients as well as a suitable intensity of creaminess. .

✨ Along with baby scallops, sliced mushrooms, the spaghetti is tossed in creamy and thick Mentaiko sauce and topped with a copious amount of seaweed and ebiko roe. Given the pocket-friendly pricing and the conventional setting of this place, I didn’t harbor much hope on this dish, just giving it a shot as a fan of Mentaiko. However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise as Mentaiko flavour in the slightly al dente spaghetti was one that’s distinctive, creamy with a pleasant umami savoury note. What’s more, there’s also a substantial amount of ingredients provided! The baby scallops had a pleasant firmness to the bite, with a slight chewiness whereas the mushrooms were chewy, lending a subtle earthy note (though overwhelmed by the Mentaiko sauce). Along with shredded nori and a heap of ebiko roe, this pasta exceeded my expectations and is indeed worth the bill (and indulgence) if you are a fan of Mentaiko! PS: I got greedy and decided to order a bucket of mentaiko fries all for myself as well, with no eventual regrets! 💖

The spaghetti was done to a slight al dente texture, bathing in a chilli cream sauce, spiked with a touch of white wine and spiced up with red chilli. Along with fresh, succulent chunks of prawn, the chilli cream sauce was light in texture, flavourful with a tinge of spiciness that was lingering ; a slight resemblance to a laksa flavour and fragrance.
As a fan of spicy food, I wouldn’t mind a higher intensity of spice but I guess this should be suffice for most out there. .

Would personally prefer if the linguine was more al dente as this was a tad too soft for my liking. Pasta was a little wet too, which was strange as this was supposed to be an aglio olio. Nevertheless, the sautéed crabmeat were fresh, juicy with a delicate mouthfeel. What's more, it's de-shelled crabmeat, making it a convenient and fuss-free indulgence! Topped with spicy cod roe sauce that added a pleasant umami note with a mild lingering spiciness, the pasta also comes with a perfectly poached egg (swipe right to view) that possessed a super runny, flowy vibrant yolk😍 .

Served along with mushrooms, poached egg, parmesan shards, the linguine is bathed in a creamy truffle sauce that comes with a lingering aroma. With a slight al dente mouthfeel, the texture of the linguine provided a pleasant firmness to the bite while withholding a distinct truffle flavour and aroma that was not too overpowering. Mushrooms were chewy and well sautéed, adding a pleasant earthy note, along with a perfectly poached egg that's soft, fragile and revealed its characteristic vibrant golden hue with a slight provoke. (PS: 1 for 1 for all truffle items every Tuesday 2-5pm✨) .

Added on mushrooms for an additional $1 which turned out to be shimeiji mushrooms that's chewy and juicy but lacked the earthy note. The salted egg yolk pasta was rich, flavourful, with a distinctive flavour that came with a pleasant lingering saltiness. Unfortunately the enjoyment was ephemeral with dryness that kicked in gradually. The mashed potatoes which I had chosen for my side was doused with a thick brown gravy and was smooth, creamy with a melt-in-the mouth texture. Though the pasta was not the best I've had, with the pocket-friendly pricing, it's indeed worth a try if you are on the budget or happen to be in the vicinity. .

Highly recommended to share this as the thick and creamy sauce might get a tad overwhelming after awhile. Generous portion of lobster chunks and crabmeat that came with a springy delicate texture, though their seafood-sque flavour was overshadowed by the garlic cream sauce. .

As a fan of gnocchi, this managed to live up to expectations with a chewy and doughy mouthfeel. The basil pesto sauce was creamy, thick and flavourful with a characteristic herbaceous minty flavour. Coupled with a pleasant crisp-crunch factor of edamame beans, juicy cherry tomatoes, the top layer of melted mozzarella was thick and gooey, where I wished there was more of it 🙈. (PS: From now till end August, make a @chopesg reservation to enjoy 1 for 1 promotion on the pasta/risottos here! ✨). .

Linguine cooked to an al dente consistency in a spicy creamy sauce that didn't really resemble mee siam but still got enjoyable for fans of spicy food! Missing ingredients here from a typical mee siam:fish cakes, beansprouts and eggs. In replacement, there's grilled prawns, capsicums, chives and lime here. The grilled prawns were well sautéed, plump and juicy with a chargrilled flavour whereas the capsicums added a pleasant crunch factor. The spicy creamy sauce had a significant impact to the palate, with a lingering, tangy note of spiciness that's definitely not suitable for the faint hearted. Nevertheless, it was still a flavourful, fragrant and enjoyable dish for me, as one who adores spicy food. .

A pity the yolk's a fully cooked, solidified one- no more 'eggporn' shots! 😢 Served in an aglio olio style, the cocciolini pasta is done to an al dente consistency, with firmness to the bite. The pulled pork slices were tender, meaty, juicy and well-braised, contributing to the bulk of the flavours in this dish. It would have been great if there were more bacon, instead of just a vulnerable little strip atop that seems to be more for visual purposes 😅. Said to be the best seller for the pasta offerings here, it was not too bad but I still preferred the spicy creamy ''mee siam' prawn linguine over this .

A classic, simple dish that's well executed with an al dente texture of noodles, tender and juicy bacon, chewy and earthy mushrooms as well as a creamy, flavourful sauce. Portion was also substantial and filling for one, though I highly recommend sharing as the thick creamy sauce might get a tad overwhelming after awhile. On a side note, service is welcoming, friendly and attentive but hopefully the staff can be more well-trained to assist in our enquiries on the dishes prior to order .

Along with your choice of linguine or fettuccine for the noodles, the pasta was done al dente, with a pleasant firmness to the bite. Tossed with crabmeat chunks, chilli crab sauce and lime leaves, the end result was one that's flavourful with a shiok lingering spiciness that's not suited for the faint hearted! The lime leaves added a subtle tangy note coupled with a characteristic citrusy fragrance. Crabmeat chunks were present significantly in a generous amount, fresh with a soft, delicate mouthfeel .
