Evan’s Kitch is a small cafe tucked within a corner of City Gate, a tad obscure but the food we had were good, and menu is extensive enough for one to keep going back.

The mains were fantastic! The flavourful pork stew with al dente spaghetti was one of my favourite, tho I did find the nicely charred pork belly to be too fatty and would prefer a better meat/ fat ratio. Served also with sous vide egg which you can mix in for a creamier texture. Will be back for this!

Thank you @burpple for the kind invite and @evanskitch for having us!

One for one on Burpple beyond is available here! Al dente, generously studded with hazelnut; this was very good! Loved the nutty fragrance within the masala cream base with tender shredded duck confit.

One for one with Burpple beyond is available here! Thought it sounded interesting but didn’t quite get the hint of chocolate from pasta. Nevertheless it was a pretty tasty pasta dish that reminded us of beef ragout.

Penne with bacon, mentai cream, mozzarella. Some may find this slightly jelak but I managed to finish this all by myself although it’s probably good for sharing. What surprised me is how I didn’t hate the taste of spring onion here. Overall, would’ve liked a bit more texture to the dish.

Upon being seated, you’ll be presented with the handcrafted pastas available for the day. Take your pick of pasta, and if you’d like to get their house specials (tried and tested combinations that probably can’t go wrong) or build your own. The latter starts from $9.90 for 100g of pasta, you get to pick the sauces and ingredients (from $1.50-$4.50 for each topping).

I can see why this place is always crowded. Probably good to head down off peak, we were there slightly before 5pm on a weekend and the wait wasn’t too bad.

G had wanted their Royal Ragu which was $15.90, but decided to build his own switching out the arugula for white button mushrooms, with the thicker mafalde pasta.

I opted for the creamy Alfredo, added prawns (3 pcs $4.50, fresh and crunchy), white button mushrooms ($2.50) topped with cheese and chilli flakes (free toppings, additional at $0.5 each) and picked the Squid Ink Spaghettini, cooked al dente.

It all boils down to your preference but I was very happy with mine!

Flavours were good and light, portion was ok; I loved the buttered scallops which were perfectly cooked. What kinda marred it overall was how soft the tagliatelle was (also overheard other people giving the same feedback so it wasn’t just my dish, hopefully it’s just an off day haha).

Service was good and I like that they took the time to ask for feedbacks! As with the other outlets, try to go during the off-peak hours or be prepared to wait.

Enjoyed the pasta here too! Pesto Chicken ($13.90) - pasta was al dente and the creamy homemade basil pesto was very flavourful and topped with cheese.

A tad too spicy for me, but this garlicky goodness was pretty addictive. Did wish they were the giant fresh prawns but at this price, it was a pretty enjoyable pasta dish and I’m just nitpicking ha.

Linguine was al dente, the soy butter sauce was creamy and very tasty - what an umami party in the mouth in addition to the chargrilled unagi 😌! Served also with salmon roe and shimeiji mushrooms. Prices here are slightly pricey but food has been good thus far - plus it’s a lovely place to chill and have a drink!

True to its name, it does taste pretty refreshingly summery! Al dente tagliatelle but I did wish it was able to soak a little more of that surprisingly light bacon cream sauce (which I proceeded to slurp them all up😂). Comes with fennel, crunchy watercress, juicy Japanese cherry tomatoes, with parmigiano reggiano and black pepper.

Yes, that crazy spicy Korean ramen, but with al dente linguine, served with bacon and mushrooms! For those who can’t take the heat, there’s always the option of level 1 spiciness - which was pretty alright (didn’t have to reach for my water after every mouthful unlike level 4). The fun part about level 4’s spiciness is that it kicks in slowly and when you realise, it’s too late. But of course they were no kick for the mala queens who preferred 4>1 but were too considerate to go for level 5. Admittedly very addictive tho a tad oily - but I’ll definitely stick to the cowardly level 1!😝

Tender with no hint of gaminess, the 24-hour pulled smoked duck with tomato sauce served with basil tagliatelle pasta, cooked al dente, was quite a delight. Portion is small so it makes for a simple starter to share; or it’s probably sufficient for a reaaaaaally small-eater.
