If you're a fan of bucatini pasta, this is for you! If you're unfamiliar with the pasta type, it's like a sloppy straw that's the perfect vessel for anything saucy.

The smoked bucatini came with pork ragu bianco, soffrito & bone marrow. The extremely flavourful sauce was all you needed for the vessel to make it a great meal. A definite must order!

Located on the first floor of Asia Square Tower 1, Extra Virgin Pizza was buzzing on a Friday afternoon with throngs of office crowds enjoying their TGIF with pizza and pastas!

Known for their Neapolitan pizzas, we opted for pastas since there were only 2 of us. New to the menu is their Prawn Aglio Olio ($29). At the base, squid ink tagliolini is tossed with olive oil & loads of garlic (yum!), topped with bread crumbs, plump prawns & chilli. This unique version using squid ink tagliolini adds a depth to the dish, giving it a slight bump as compared to other prawn Aglio olio out there.

The proportion of prawn to pasta ratio was just right with the huge plump prawns, making it a really satisfying dish, without the food coma.

[NATIONAL PIZZA DAY ๐Ÿ•] Did you know 9 Feb marks National Pizza Day?

A throwback to this hand-stretched pizza which was done under 3 minutes (yes, we counted)! From the time they took the dough, to stretching, to adding a base followed by toppings, and into the oven to be rotated before being sent to our table; all these happened within a span of 3 minutes ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

While we stand (or sit rather) amazed, the whiffs of freshly baked sourdough pizza perfumed the air, as we delicately tear off each piece and dive right into it. The light fluffy & charred dough is accompanied by a slightly sweet yet tart tomato base and topped with perfectly melted mozzarella & crispy bits of basil, creating a great Magherita pizza.

Perfectly fried truffle mushroom risotto rice balls, stacked atop each other in a tomato-based pond & topped with grated parmesan is not something you'd think of when you head to a pizza parlour. But boy does this catch your eye & appetite when you order it!

The hint of truffle is subtle (smell-wise), but when you bite into it, the gentle aroma of truffle perfumes every possible taste bud & senses in your body to give you that nice oomph, leaving you wanting to dive into it another time.

This gorgeous plate is one dish for the carbonara lovers. As one of the 2 pastas available on the mains menu, I'd rather this anytime!

The thick, creamy (though there's no cream) & cheesy linguine with a perfect yolk in the middle layers every corner of your mouth as you slurp down each strand.

The dish is well-balanced & is exactly what you'd expect, no less.

Apart from the mains, please have a go at their cocktails! Their usual prices are $19++ & up which is fairly affordable for CBD area drinks.

Thank you #burpplebeyond for the keeping some of these restaurants in contact! We were able to enjoy Amano's amazing pastas, at a 1 for 1 deal.

I called in advance to order so that I didn't have to wait too long at the restaurant. Unfortunately, some of the dishes that I wanted were out of stock, but nonetheless, it was still a hearty meal!

The standouts from this meal was the Mushroom Risotto & the Tortellini!

The Unami earthy flavours of the risotto filled the air as we opened each container. While it doesn't look like much, it tastes a whole lot better.

The tortellini (looks more like ravioli) was packed with spinach & ricotta & each piece was stuffed yet perfectly sealed. The balance of the sauce & the ravioli was just right!

If you have a chance, do go for their pizzas as well! Worth every penny!

Tomato Base, Burrata & Basil - 3 simple ingredients, but becomes a perfect mix on the pizza.

Each slice was tangy, yet savoury, and with a hint of herbs. Definitely a slice that you can chow down easily, this Burrata pizza stole our hearts and stomach the second it hit our tongues.

What I enjoyed as well was the thin, light and airy crust, which was hand-pulled before being thrown in the oven!

Best part, this is on burpple beyond, and is part of the 1 for 1 offerings!

Tucked at the second floor of Bishan Stadium & overlooking the track is Good Bites, a pretty, aesthetically pleasing space serving up decent bites in this central area.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we managed to get 1 for 1 pastas from their option of 6. Apart from that, they do also serve up burgers & healthy bowls!

For their Seafood Aglio Olio ($14.50), it comes with fresh prawns, squid, mussels, lightly tossed in olive oil & garlic with spaghetti. However, we requested for pure prawns as my sister doesn't take the other 2 & they kindly obliged with additional fees (yay, plus point)!

Pasta was slightly overcooked, but came as a decent portion with fresh plump juicy prawns! Flavour & taste wise was spot on, without being too oily, definitely a dish to have if you're looking for something light & simple.

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 sautรฉed 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

If you've heard of LINO, you'd know they have recently ventured into having a pasta bar! Located within Shaw House, LINO Pasta Bar serves up simple 3 or 4 course set menus for lunch and dinner, at affordable rates of $24++ or $30++ respectively.

For each set, you can also choose to top up for selected items of each category!

For the burrata, it comes with tomatoes & homemade pesto & served with a side of toasted focaccia.

The condiments were extremely well-balanced & complimented the burrata perfectly! Only downside was that there was not enough pesto! However, the servers were kind enough to provide us an extra portion upon request! The pesto was a crowd pleaser with hints of herbs & crushed nuts.

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.
