Our food is about simply presented wholesome, really flavourful food in a slightly quirky, not too hip, family friendly environment. Put another way, our approach to food is that of a parent cooking with heart, familiar flavours and generous portions but also with the same down-to-earth approach to presentation, in an almost hip environment your parents would feel comfortable in. We started out selling my pesto sauce at events and then graduated to being a hawker. Unfortunately, despite being a hawker at heart, we had to open a restaurant because of escalating rent and the difficulty of hiring staff for a hawker stall. Our food is very laboriously prepared and frankly maybe the most flavourful you've had. We also sell my pasta sauces and soups in vacuum packs which are very convenient for families to prepare a meal with.

As the name states, this is possibly a dish you'd want to indulge in to feel better in the event of a bad break up & you'd likely will.

The break up steak is made of a 300g aged ribeye, aged in-house, served with 2 types of salt - garlic salt & smoked chilli salt, mashed potatoes, twice sautéed mushrooms & roasted carrots.

It may look simple, but the cooked at medium rare, the ribeye is so tender & soft, it almost melts in your mouth. The 2 salts (made in-house) provided helps to heighten the flavour by just a notch, making it super easy for you to wipe this plate clean!

The sides that comes with the steak compliments it pretty well & definitely fills you to the brim!

Definitely something for you to try if you're a steak lover! #noragrats

Shared my thoughts about the finished product in my previous post, but here's how it starts.

Never would you have imagined how each component complimented each other so so well. A definite must order if you are a burrata fan!

A stand out dish of the night was our starter, the Salted Fish Buffalo Mozzarella Burratina. Essentially, your usual burrata suspects, with a twist of salted fish.

Yes, salted fish. Deep fried salted fish is added to the mix to give this pop a different dimension!

The dish is first served separately, and plated right in front of you. Each piece of thinly sliced & crispy foccacia is used as a base to piece together the burrata, roasted cured tomatoes, a drizzle of honey, topped with bits of salted egg & black sesame.

what you get is an amazing mix of sweet, savoury, salty, as well as loads of crunch beyond your imagination.

Not traditional, but so so good.

I first dined at this outlet when they were called Pasta J, and they were located at Upper Thomson. They have now relocated to Novena and we have yet to go there. I’ve tried their Breakup Steak and Pesto Pasta with Prawns and Squid, and I was blown away both times. The steak is tender, cooked to perfection and so flavourful. I’m not a fan of prawns, but believe me, the prawns in their pesto pasta are the only prawns I actively want to eat (and miss eating). I asked them to switch out the squid for more prawns, because that’s how much I love their prawns! Their twice sautéed shrooms are absolutely delicious as well. Highly recommended because of the great food, and also because you can bring dogs to the restaurant 💕

We had the 22.90 range - mac and cheese, pesto and CARAMEL CARNIVORE. I liked the last pasta best, but the mac and cheese was a close second!

Brined for 2 weeks before it hits the grill for that lovely char and the oven for that perfectly even cook - no sous vide involved here. The wagyu tomahawk itself is ordered without the bone so you gain all that ‘bone’ weight in meat. It’s finally crusted in toasted black sesame before being served with slow roasted tomatoes and ohsoamazingcaramelised carrots.
The meat is then carved and served at the table, in batches, so the meat stays juicy and warm throughout the meal. The richness of the meat, with a little tartness from the tomatoes and sweetness from the caramelised carrots - takes you to a happy food coma after the meal is done.
Don’t forget to also try their soups and pastas (tomato soup, Muddy Mushroom soup, Clammy Addiction and Caramel Carnivore (the upgraded version has meatballs now!) pastas being some of my favorites! Too bad the killed the Bourdain). A reservation and a $100 deposit is required when you book the wagyu tomahawk or the short ribs. Go with at least 4 pax or 3 monsters. You won’t regret this.
