Paired with plenty of small shrimps atop which has a crunchy sweet texture. Although I wished plump juicy prawns were used instead but for the pricing, it is rather value for money.

Chanced upon this small lil gastro pub restaurant and decided to have a drink.
Oh well wrong move, the restaurant is so noisy and is just like going to a market!!! Last time back here, not recommended for anyone who wants a nice ambience or some quiet place for dinner and drink.

A hidden gem with an affordable, rustic set lunch menu with dishes that were executed perfectly.

The salad was a refreshing starter with a zingy wasabi soy drizzle. They do a mean spinach aglio olio, cooked to garlicky, al-dente perfection, topped with slices of eggplant and zucchini that were fresh, juicy with an addictive charred smokiness. Fans of the classic carbonara might take a liking to their fusion take, with bonito flakes crowning the creamy dish.

We were treated to a colourful trio of hand-shaved chips - the sweet potato chips were outstanding (dip them in the homemade guacamole salsa and you'll see why). Teas were at $2 a pop with the set lunch - the iced pomegranate tea was a refreshing treat.

We stared longingly at the halibut dish that was also on the menu, but that's a dish for another culinary sojourn.

Also comes with complements of seasonal vegetable and pickle to add another flavour and texture dimension to the dish, as well as to cut through the richness of the BBQ pork ribs. Break into the oozy onsen egg to meld all the elements in the bowl together. .

Although mini in size, the beef patty sandwiched in between the buttery toasted buns was thick and succulent. Each slider also comes with tomato, melted cheese, oyster mushroom and pickle, which adds some sweetness and crunch to the sliders. .

Served with tender bacon slices and topped with an onsen egg that eluded a merciless yet gorgeous flow🤩, my favourite component has got to be the bonito flakes which provided a pleasant umami flavour to the creamy spaghetti.
2️⃣ Spinach tortellini with tomato coulis, ricotta cream & basil oil
A vegetarian-friendly dish that comprises of dumpling-shaped pasta with compact fillings of creamy, minced spinach, this dish is also served with shiitake mushrooms, green peas, ricotta cream, drizzled with basil oil on a shallow pool of tangy tomato coulis. Thankfully(for me) the tomato coulis was just an insignificant minor component here😅. Simply adore the creamy minced spinach fillings that scored a substantial balanced ratio between pasta sheet:fillings, which was surprisingly a good complement here, without any vegetal bitter undertone. The addition of mushrooms also provided a pleasant earthy note while the ricotta cream wasn’t too cloying, which also imparted some smoothness and moisture to the pasta sheets.
3️⃣Tagliatelle pasta, diablo with clam, cherry tomato & crabmeat [$14.90]
My favourite pasta among the 3 here, also partly due to my bias for seafood 🤭. Beneath the al dente tagliatelle pasta sheets lies a base of lobster bisque which was flavourful, umami with a seafood-sque flavour, topped with fresh and juicy clams, crabmeat chunks and cherry tomato. This pasta is also mildly spicy with garnishes of fresh cut chilli slices.
With all weekday set lunches, you can also enjoy a complimentary soup of the day (Dashi soup for us that day), along with house salad (assorted raw crunchy vegetables with wafu dressing).

Thanks @viiogastropub for satisfying my palate with a sumptuous spread and @ariane.le for extending the invite! 🙆🏻‍♀️😋 .
