Reviews of good food at Ah Bong's Italian (Tan Quee Lan)
[Burpple Promotion, details inside] This would be my new favorite place to go for my Italian meals, it's cheap and good.

Don't be fooled by the affordable prices, the food here is as good as many Italian restaurants. I find it to be authentic quality Italian cuisine, and every dish felt like they were made from the heart by Chef-owner Chris.

Non Descript

Back for another lunch set! Pastas for the sets change everyday so there's always something new. That day was my first (and definitely hoping for not last) encounter with this beautiful mentaiko pasta.
Prior to this, my only experience with mentaiko was in mayonnaise which I liked, but it was mostly drowned by the creamy sauce.This pasta however, was generously coated with mentaiko and balanced well with the crunchy cucumber. It was savoury, salty and flavourful and had me slurping every strand with joy. Do take note that it might be too strong tasting for some, but mentaiko fans like me will surely rejoice.
This was such great value especially since mentaiko can be very expensive and they definitely didn't stinge on the ingredient. Yum!!!!

Comfort Eggs

This was so aptly named for I can hardly think of anything more comforting as a starter than two perfectly cooked and runny eggs mixed with (or rather flavoured by) mushrooms and chorizo and finally topped off with cheese. The only thing I can think of that can make this better is a side of well toasted bread to dip into the mixture. Luckily, we had also ordered the Burrata which came with bread so I'm a happy camper!

Angus Meat Ragu Pasta

Affordable lunch sets priced at $12 are on the weekday menu but this meat ragu was sooo worth the +$6 top up.
Pasta was well cooked and firm to the bite, but it was the ragu that made me wanna lick my plate clean at the end of the meal. Balanced with both beef and pork, the meat sauce was not overpowering at all. Instead, it was well balanced savoury goodness coupled with extra tender beef cheeks.
I just had this a couple of days ago, but I'm already dreaming of going back for this again. And of course, to finally get my hands on the highly raved Burrata & the new Truffle Pig Ears.

Crabby Aglio Olio

Generous portion of crab, with lovely crabby juices going with the linguine. Cherry tomatoes & asparagus add color & texture as well. This was $16, well worth the ingredients and quality cooking. The place will do well with a better atmosphere... but I'll definitely come for the food!:)

Bacon Pasta Lunch Set

$12 + $2 top up
Topped up $2 for their homemade drink and as a fan of sour drinks, I really loved the orange homemade drink, which name I'm not so sure of. The pasta and brownie was just average but definitely a filling meal. The lunch set is $12, a main course, a drink and a dessert.

Crabby Pasta

Gave this a go but was pretty let down by how hastily my Crab Meat Aglio Olio ($16) was put tgt, giving no texture or flavors in this main that could potentially crab walk its way into my heart. Big, honest portion but would I pay $16 to eat this again? No ☹️️

On The Hunt

It's been a while since I've paid a visit to Ah Bong's Italian, so it's only right for me to sample the newest dish they have to offer. Their new Hunter's Pomodoro ($21 with fresh, house made pasta) certainly made the pilgrimage back worth it.

Coils of fettuccine are coated with a luscious, savory bolognese style tomato sauce that's unarguably loaded with T H I C C chunks of lamb meat and chorizo, and bacon bits sprinkled throughout and served piping hot to anyone fortunate enough experience this excellent plate of pasta.

It was quite gamey, so anyone who has a compelling aversion to gamey flavors would find this plate of pasta quite abhorrent. However, if you're brave enough to play the game, you would enjoy just how utterly hearty the Hunter's Pomodoro is. At its core, it's a savory, meaty and wholesomely hearty pasta. I, for one, found it a tad too salty for my tastes, but I still found myself enjoying Chris' new pasta procreation nonetheless.

Angus Meat Ragu ($16)

Most comforting and savoury pasta dish of all time. The meat is tender and melts in your mouth. The ragu sauce is rich, beefy and coats the pasta well, and every mouthful is full of delicious goodness. It is so good that I always make sure I get every last bit of ragu sauce on my plate and leave nothing behind!!

Crab Heaven

Homemade Crab Cakes ($8 nett)

This photo doesn't do them justice. This is the way crab cakes should be done; you can see the juicy tasty chunks of crab meat in there. Pure heaven πŸ˜‡ & the sauce goes so well with them, too. Eat them while they're hot!

Great Flavour

Truffle Mushroom Risotto ($16 nett)

Sure looks plain in the photo, but I can assure you it packs a PUNCH in flavour πŸ‘Š Plenty of Shiitake & Enoki mushrooms to go around, the Risotto is cooked to perfection. If I could have this every day..... 😍 lol.

🍝 pasta worth every penne 🍝

First time at Ah Bong's (yes very late I know) to try their pastas!!!! Ordered the crabby aglio alio ($16) which had a lovely distinctive sweetness from the fresh tomatoes, and the Angus meat ragu ($16), with tender beef cheek and duroc pork which was smoky, savoury and not too salty.
Get their sea salt marscarpone gelato ($4/scoop) if it's available because it's seriously addictive - sweet, salty and creamy with the right amount of milkiness. Will be back to try their homemade pasta!!

Any plans for the upcoming recess week?

πŸ˜‰ If not, why not check out Ah Bong's Italian that's conveniently located a stone's throw away from Bugis MRT. Well-known for their pasta, expect new surprises with their daily rotational menu! Psst: there's also an outlet at tiong bahru hawker centre but it's ceasing operations on 28 feb! 😒😒

A Hint Of Singaporean In Pasta!

Crab aglio olio @ $16 nett. Loved the infusion, tasty! Not a very fancy place, but it's good if ya want a hearty home cooked feel and a comfortable place to htht/catch upπŸ‘₯

Comfort Food At Its Purest Form

Angus Meat Ragu ($21 for homemade pasta)

I absolutely loved the texture of the tagliatelle/fettuccine - perfectly al dente with a firm bite to it (even though it reminded me of Mee pok). The sauce was not what I had expected though. I would have imagined it to be more of like a Bolognese sauce, but this was light and garlicy, yet meaty at the same time. I would say that it helped to let the tender, flavorful beef cheeks shine through all that dough.

However, I would have liked a larger portion. If not for the truffle fries, I would have left still hungry. And while it definitely tasted good, it's overrated, but that's just my humble opinion. Perhaps it's just because of the high expectations I had stemming from all the hype surrounding this dish.
