Hunt for delicious pasta

Glad to finally visit here- a social enterprise cafe that hires and supports special needs, and they also serve a mean Mac & Cheese (finished in no time). The set is super worth it. For $9 you get a drink, a side (truffle fries!) And a cake, which we went for ondeh ondeh. Also tried the Franciscan burger which comes with it's unique seasoning.

Came here on Valentine's and happy to support with no burpple deals too.

Dinner of choice for valentine! (Or more like a restaurant that can accommodate our last min reservation). In the quieter heart of kovan at the Promenade, this place stands out with it's options and price range. The white wine clam fettuccine is buttery rich and immersed in the fragrance of garlic. The fettuccine does seem overcooked as it's missing the bounciness in the bite. This dish also comes peppered with lil chilli bits. ($18.80)

My friend's a big fan of their pork striploin which is really tender!

Ps. The mini alkaline water goes for $1 each, would be good if they let us know too

Featuring Cacio e Pepe (cheese and pepper pasta) that's topped with a runny egg. While it looks nondescript, the creamy goodness of cheese and tease of pepper comes through. Simply a lovely place for brunch and gatherings in a spacious, sunny and classy cafe in the heart of South Beach

The spinach ricotta ravioli was lip smacking good. Bathed in rich tomato cream sauce with these ravioli dumplings capturing creamy spinach with ricotta.... Plus, these are handmade by Amano. ($24)

Service was impeccable, and we enjoyed this spacious yet cosy setting to dine. It's a little secluded in the bukit timah area, but worth the trip definitely.

The carbonara here is one of a kind, and we fell in love with it instantly. The traditional creamless one that's generous with the pepper (lovely) plus non fatty bacon. Best of all, it's $20 and in a very homely setting.

Spontaneous meetups, warm chai latte and Aglio Olio with tinge of spice and buttery mushrooms, just a nice space to get lost in conversations with friends amidst the gentle rain

Ps. Prices are nett here, and avail on BB

4 Cs standing for crabmeat, caviar, chorizo and confit lemon - served cold and with lobster bisque. This is an appetising way to start a meal because of how it's creamy, light coat of seafood sauce with sweet and salty tones. Plus, check out that generous mountain of crab meat!

Love the burst of flavours with the bits of caviar. Must have dish, the flavours are well mastered but I find it great to share - so you can get to eat more! ($14.90 for starters, $19.90 for mains)

This place served as a good mid point to recharge on our cycling trip from east coast park to Changi airport - passing by the jurassic mile. Seems like most customers have their bikes parked outside in this cafe serving both local and western dishes, which we tried both

The carbonara with spaghetti is decent, with plus points given to the egg that goes well with the cream sauce ($13.90). The bacon seems a lil imitated.... They also make a mean mee rebus with the extra kick of chilli ($6.90).

While the teh halia is strong, the honey O felt very much watered down, nevertheless, thankful for the chilled refreshment on a hot day

Means Fresh Pasta. This place is a stone's throw away from Paya Lebar MRT, in the more secluded corners of PLQ3. Pasta fresca offers a wide range of pasta options, and we enjoyed this Amatriciana with mushroom tortellini (lil pasta dumplings). Amatriciana is flavourful and cooked with bacon, I particularly like the sour tinge that the tomatoes lend. (~$18)

Cozy Friday evenings

Love eleven strands ~ with their quality food and short wait times. Had fruitti de mare (seafood with tomato base) with their handmade tagliatelle (+$3). Peppered with lots of garlic bits but felt the sauce wasn't the most memorable.

The wagyu burger got a thumbs up from both of us! Rmb to make a booking before you come for guaranteed seats :-)

Ps. This is about 12 mins walk from Nex

Every dish impressed - had the beef cube pasta ($25) slow cooked in the tantalising and creamy red wine sauce that amazed us all. Plus the beef simply... melted. Will go for the option to top up to their homemade tagliatelle for $3 next time.

Ft. Braised beef cheeks ($25) and truffle kombu fries ($15) Big plus that their food are all served in 10mins.

This place is a gem 💎

Favourite tomato cream pasta nailed here, though the sweeter and more bubbly souffle egg does take some getting used to (usually more dessert-ish). This is their anniversary special dish, and they kindly excluded the "chili" for me.

The Fuwa fuwa porcini mushroom risotto captured the dense and buttery taste well, but felt like the rice isn't the usual hardy risotto rice.

Tgif dinner :)
