Despite a few undercooked strands, the Spanner Crab Bucatini was so lovely too. The al dente bucatini picked up the seafood-rich sauce in the best way possible, paired with a generous portion of sweet spanner crab meat and briny smoked trout roe. So good.

Loved our dinner at Cenzo! The Shellfish Risotto was wonderfully executed - full of smokiness, umami and an on point slight chewy texture on the grains. Prawns were nicely grilled as well. It was so flavour packed, but easy to keep going with its contrasting hint of heat.

Haven’t had PastaMania in a long time and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of offerings they have now. We enjoyed the slightly creamy and tangy Tom Yum sauce that had a touch of heat. The seafood are not the most fresh, but pretty decent for this price tag!

Couple more days to catch @nudedles.4 x @iammirkofebbrile for their pop-up collab at Chinatown Complex Food Centre.

Thought the queue would have settled down by now but no guys, it didn’t 😂 We got 1 of each of everything and our favourites were the classic Rigatoni alla Carbonara ($9) and Linguine al Pesto ($7). These were on point. No other tips on how to catch them, but to get here and be in the queue probably before 930am - ask around for the queue so that you don’t miss it!

Easy pick for us as a sharing appetiser cause we’re all fans of burrata. Pretty big sized burrata on a bed of arugula with cherry tomatoes and house-made balsamic vinaigrette.

Tribeca is a multi menu concept bistro and this was from Pasta Table’s menu. Thank you @tribecasg for having us! ✨

These calamari were thicker crusted and had lime aioli for dipping. Wasn’t as strongly seasoned!

This was a crowd pleaser with its bright flavours! Enjoyed this a lot as our appetiser, it had zucchini, grapes, blueberries, walnuts, capers and shaved parmesan. Kale was crunchy.

Boneless chicken wings stuffed with black pepper cream cheese that oozed out on cut. Meat was pretty tender, though more bland than we hoped for - is potentially a good side to share!

This Burnt Cabbage was one of our favourites of our meal at the newly opened Tipo Pizzeria e Trattoria. Initially planned to visit their (also relatively new) Novena outlet to try the popular pastas, but saw that this new space of theirs not only has pastas, but pizzas and lots of other sides! Prices lean more to the higher end.

The cabbage was distinctly smoky while still retaining some of its natural sweetness. Pair it with their parmesan cream and crunchy puffed barley, and it was a very easy dish to finish. This was stated as one of their vegetarian mains - but thought it could be just a bit bigger in portion.

We were here for dinner, but saw that they offer more affordable lunch sets that come with cold brew teas, similar to the other Tipo outlets.

Pasta & Co’s a relatively new pasta spot tucked in Fortune Centre, just next to the escalator on the 2nd floor. Specialising in handmade pastas, choose from 4 pasta types - roasted capsicum with paprika spaghetti, beetroot fusilli, pumpkin rigatoni and squid ink tagliatelle: to go with their menu of 10 pasta dishes (there’s also 2 risottos)!

We had their Cacio E Pepe with capsicum spaghetti. Haven’t had that many cacio e pepe to compare properly, but we quite enjoyed how the peppery notes gradually grew distinct yet not overbearing, allowing the cheesiness to still take presence. Would have liked this just a lot less oily though. Prices lean on higher end.

Creamy, very earthy and loaded with a variety of mushrooms of different textures! Loved this for how well seasoned it was, how the rice was cooked perfectly and that it wasn’t too heavy. Only gripe was that the portion was much, much smaller than we expected.

There’s Burpple Beyond here, but make sure you call to reserve before dropping by. They’ve also recently swapped to 1 for 1s on a smaller fixed menu.

While the mash was smooth and creamy, it lacked a bit more butteriness. The truffle wasn’t as strong in taste, compared to its aroma.
