Exclusively available in conjunction in this year’s World Pasta Day, Eleven Strands was game in selling pasta kits for pasta lovers to bring the flavours home for consumption within a one-month shelf life.

Their pesto sauce tasted similar to what one would be able to get from the restaurant, with rich flavours of olive oil, garlic, fresh basil leaves and pine nuts exuding from the sauce. In the meantime, the pre-cooked linguine could be heated up in a pot of boiling water, so everything could be served up within minutes. I would say that the freshness of the sauce would justify for this Pasta Kit to cost S$15.00. (Note: Grilled salmon fillet prepared separately.)

While the offer only lasted for three days, I might seriously consider getting the pasta kit again when they would sell this again, should I want to have freshly-cooked pasta at home.

There was no doubt that the Prawn Basil Pesto Pasta (S$24.00) was a hit here. Creamy and fragrant pesto sauce was further thickened with grated Parmigano-Reggiano cheese to add an extra dimension of flavours to their freshly-made tagliatelle pasta (additional S$3.00) to perfect the meal.

One thing for sure, was that the pasta must be eaten freshly served, to have that piping hot satisfaction while slurping every strand of pasta. In fact, I wished that I would lick the remaining sauce off the plate, because it was that delicious!

Past the Happy Hour, Beer Basket was still bustling with activities. Customers were indulging in the restaurant’s selection of craft beer and alcohol, and it was nice for the restaurant to also offer bar bites and some mains, so there’s always something to go with the beverages at different times of the day.

Their Beef Meatballs Bolognese (S$18.00) was one of the items that would be eligible for Burpple Beyond deals. Using their hand-made beef meatballs, the proteins might not be very big, but was reasonably seasoned yet had a bit of springiness to it. The bolognese was generously coating their linguine, which helped to keep the strands slightly wet, but thank goodness I did not have tomato sauce stains on my shirt after that.

“Sweet Dreams are made of cheese.”

If one can’t decide to order a dessert or more pizza, I would really recommend to order the Sweet Dreams (S$26.00), which included mozzarella, blue cheese, parmesan and ricotta on their awesome pizza base, before drizzled with honey.

Though it might be a tad sweet, I would say that it was also able to play down the taste of blue cheese which some might feel repulsive towards. Perhaps one might not be worthy to be called a “cheese lover” if he did not order this pizza?

The Holy Crab! pizza was one of the most impressive pizzas that we have had during the visit. At S$28.00, there was generous amounts of real crab meat spread around the pizza that featured their in-house pizza dough and chilli crab sauce.

I really loved their pizza dough, which obviously tasted different from most pizzas that I have had locally. And there should not be any reason to ditch the crust of the pizza, simply because it tasted so fresh, airy and absolutely delightful to finish. Dip into their sauce for the “happy ending” finish, and obviously, if there was no sauce left, it would be time to order more!

With lots of Mentaiko sauce and a half-boiled egg, this Bacon & Mentai Cream Pasta (S$13.80) was just the right item to order on a day I craved for a taste of savoury cream-based pasta. In fact, because of the runny yolk and whites, the sauce tasted a little more eggy which I quite liked. I do know of people who could not stand the taste of eggs when they were not fully-cooked.

Three upgrades happened here: extended kitchen, more dine-in seats and a larger menu. Now that they started serving 12” pizzas, I was surely curious to see if their pizzas were comparable with those from LINO and Peperoni Pizzeria (all under the Les Amis Group).

What could be better than ordering their Burrata Pizza (S$24.00)? Topped with marinated cherry tomatoes and basil pesto, the pizza met my expectations with its thin, crispy yet airy pizza crust that was just so yummy. It was a shame to learn that they could not install a wood-fired pizza oven because of building regulations, but the crispiness of the pizza (even after all the oil from the pesto kind of soaked it) stayed, and I found that pretty amazing to be honest.

They also offered food delivery, powered by Oddle, at a fee and a slight mark-up. However, I really would doubt that you could replicate that same level of satisfaction by doing so.

This combination was like a meat galore above a red sauce base, with the standard pineapple and ham on one side and the meatballs, pepperoni and bacon on the other.

It was one of those best comfort foods that I would order through Deliveroo, and while the pizzas here were at a premium price, I would really vouch that Peperoni Pizzeria served really scrumptious pizza with that crust that I absolutely would not say no to. So for those who do not like to eat the pizza crust when they go to a pizza restaurant, I would advise you not to waste the dough here and finish even the last crumb that you could find.

Honestly, I would not go for angel hair as my top choice of pasta because I always thought that it lacked the volume for the “al dente” finish that I would expect from pasta dishes. However, the Cold Angel Hair Pasta with Yuzu, Salted Seaweed & Ikura (S$18.00) was an item in their takeaway menu that sort of changed my opinion.

The choice of ingredients gave the pasta a savoury, umami finish that very much resembled an oriental dry noodle dish, less the Kecap and chilli. Although served cold, the pasta did not turn clumpy after packed, and it was easily mixed and tossed upon serving.

Served in their refreshed menu this year, LECOQ introduced two sea urchin mains for the diners who loved its freshness — the Hot Uni Spaghetti (S$22.00) and the Cold Uni Somen.

Every strand of the spaghetti was thickly coated with a cream-based sauce with a few pieces of the raw sea urchin resting beautifully, so once the pasta was tossed, you could actually taste the freshness of the sea urchin without feeling to overpowered by it. Even as a person who was not a big fan of sea urchin, I thought this was a pretty noteworthy dish to enjoy.

As far as I understood, this dish would not be redeemable as a Burpple Beyond deal, but don’t let that stop you from savouring it.

Of bacon, Shiitake mushrooms and a runny egg wobbling in the middle, this Shipwreck pizza (S$22.00) turned out to be a delightful comfort food to go with their beer. What I liked about this was its simplicity coupled with those familiar flavours, coming together with the crispy thin crust.

Best enjoyed with their EagleWings Craft Beer from S$5.00 per half pint onwards!

As a response to the decline in business at Jewel Changi Airport, Café Morozoff introduced a price cut for their pasta dishes, allowing diners to get a plate of pasta at only S$10.00 (usual price S$12.50). On top of the price cut, they would even throw in a beverage or pudding for free, making the deal very attractive.

There was quite a large portion of pasta, with large chunks of diced chicken tossed in mushroom cream sauce that tasted strangely familiar. Though I could use a bit more intensed flavours here, the overall satisfaction was still pretty good in relation to the price point.
