Pasta La Vista

Quintessential Italian dish loved by many for its heavenly carbo that can be healthy or super indulgent.

Baked in a skillet, the macaroni pasta was covered in gooey and creamy cheese sauce with a prominent cheddar flavour and bacon bits. One of my guilty pleasures that's hearty and comforting. ❤

I give an "A" for the effort put into the plating and presentation. It looked like an opened lotus flower on the plate. The spaghetti were cooked al dente, the clams were fresh and there was just enough chilli for that extra kick. I felt that the sauce could be less salty though but overall an affordable and comforting dish.

A signature cold pasta dish in a glass jar that had elements of Japanese influences in it. The capellini pasta was served with fresh prawns and scallops, Japanese cucumber slices and shredded nori; and tossed in a zesty sauce. Overall this chilled pasta dish was light, refreshing and flavourful.

The strands of spaghetti was drenched in thick and creamy chilli crab sauce. Served with real crab meat, the sauce was tongue-tingling as the spiciness kicked in. I would have preferred the less spicy sauce and bigger chunks of crab meat then the shredded pieces. Overall it was tasty and retained the chilli crab flavour, but not one of my favourites.

The skillet-baked mac & cheese was whisked in a blend of 5 types of cheese and all melted together to create comforting cheesy goodness. The cheese suace was rich and creamy with a prominent cheese flavour, and it stuck to the pasta tubes quite well. Overall the flavour of the dish was one-dimensional and felt in need of some flavour which was added by the crispy herb breadcrumbs sprinkled at the top. 🧀🧀🧀

For $15, the pasta came with a side and drink. Though there was an aroma of truffle that wifted through the air while mixing the pasta, the truffle taste was rather elusive. Overall it felt more like a regular mushroom cream pasta dish that was dry and rather jelak.

The longer the wait, the higher the expectations. This dish was super disappointing and super unsatisfying. Firstly it did not have any resemblance to the photo in the menu; and I was expecting a pasta in thick mapo tofu sauce, not a broth/soup (menu stated 'sauce'). Secondly there was no reminiscent of mapo tofu as it was not spicy and no tofu pieces. Thirdly it just tasted like seafood horfun served in a claypot and using spaghetti instead of traditional chinese noodles. 😠

The shredded meat was tender and flavoursome that clinged to the wide strands of pasta, and tossed in a tomato-based sauce. Topped with parmesan and a runny egg, this classic Italian dish was not glamorous but it sure was rich and hearty. Sprinkled on some chilli flakes for the added kick.

Large flat tagliatelle pasta strands were tossed in a slightly sweet tomato cream sauce and dressed with chunks of crab meat. Flavour wise was relatively flat and it was missing the chilli that could have elevated it with a spicy punch.

New kiosk with a mix and match concept where you pick what you want to create your own pasta. I had the classic Mac & Cheese where cooked elbow pasta (ie. macaroni) was added with chicken chunks and chicken sausages in a bowl. The mix was then tossed in cheese sauce and heaped on with more cheese before it's heated up into creamy goodness. Overall an average cheesy meal as taste was one-dimensional and lack flavour.

Nothing beats a classic bolognese than a tomato-based pasta filled with meaty goodness. The pasta sauce was not overly rich, and the onions, carrots and garlic added to it the rustic flavour. Not bad for a beef bolognese!

The Granchio (chilli crab pasta) came with fresh crab meat, cherry tomatoes, garlic, chili and Kaffir lime. Glad that they used linguine pasta. Tasty and flavorful, each pasta strand was drenched with the sweet, spicy and tangy sauce. The heat was subtle that didn't numb the tongue, but if you like spicy food, you may want to drizzle some tobasco sauce for an added kick. Pretty good overall!
