AMAZING
1st TRUFFLE ALFREDO
ROAST coffee & eatery, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon
With homemade tagliatelle, bacon and mushroom. So luscious! And the aroma, oh that wonderful aroma of truffles... Heavenly!
REALLY GOOD
2nd SRIRACHA DICED PORK PASTA
Blue Dye Cafe, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon
Ok this one, I freaking love. It had just the right touch of heat and flavour. I would gladly order this again!
3rd BEEF RAGU
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
Absolutely freaking delicious. That sauce was rich and thick and coated each bite of pasta perfectly. Heaven!
4th PAPPARDELLE AL RAGU
Thirdwave Cafe, Kuala Lumpur
This was meaty and hearty and full of flavours. One little gripe was it was almost veering towards the sweet side. Still good.
5th SPAGHETTI CARBONARA
Extraction, Petaling Jaya
Love, love, love. This was so creamy and rich and delicious!
6th KIMCHI TUNA PASTA
The Augmented Cafe, Petaling Jaya
This may not look like much, but it’s actually packed with flavour! The lady boss prepares most of the food here and you can really tell that she puts a lot of love into her cooking. If I’m not mistaken I think the cafe makes their own kimchi as well as they want to guarantee that everything is halal.
7th DUCK 3 WAYS
WhupWhup Restaurant & Cafe, Subang Jaya
Salted duck egg, duck breast, duck bacon. Duck, duck, duck. The pasta on its own was a bit on the bland side, but mix it up with the salty duck bacon and it'll be perfect. The duck breast was nice and pink and juicy. Maybe too big a portion though. This was on WhupWhup's fourth day of operation, so I'm guessing there will still be some tweaking made to their menu. ~ "Kan gua duck cakap gua havoc."
PRETTY GOOD
8th THE KILLING YOLK
Rebel Pasta, Petaling Jaya
“Matcha fettuccine in pesto with fresh egg yolk, toasted panko, parmesan and rocket leaves” Tasty, but we felt that the pasta was a wee bit under. It will not stop us from returning to Rebel Pasta though as we tasted enough to make us want to come back for more. Go early, the place does get crowded.
9th SPAGHETTI ALLA RISATA
La Risata Damansara, Kuala Lumpur
Mixed seafood and spaghetti in a hearty tomato sauce baked in foil. Tasty, but the general consensus during dinner was the food standard seemed to have dropped a little. It's still good and comforting but missing some pizzazz. Or fairy dust.
10th PASTA ALLA VONGOLE
Restoran Uno!, Subang Jaya
Nicely done with a generous amount of clams. Simple but tasty!
11th HOLLY MOLLY
Rebel Pasta, Petaling Jaya
Wasn’t half bad, but when the description said “Dark chocolate beef brisket stew” I expected something richer and thicker. This had flavour no doubt, but could have been so much better.
12th WM STYLE CARBONARA
Wondermama, Kuala Lumpur
With grand padano, beef bacon and marmite chicken, topped with cucumber. Carbonara with an Asian twist and it worked rather well.
13th SPAGHETTI KERABU
Poppo Kanteen Puchong, Puchong
I honestly was not expecting much but WOW this dish was a punch in the face with flavours. Sour and slightly sweet with all the typical Thai additions like shallots, lemongrass, Thai basil and cut chilies, you can’t help but to keep digging in. Like a Thai salad but with spaghetti! Be warned though... it’s really spicy 🌶🌶🌶.
JUST OK
14th LAMB WITH LEMON & OLIVE PASTA
D'Italiane Kitchen Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya
“Marinated NZ lamb with lemon rind, sliced black olives, herbs and garlic in white wine and olive oil.” ~ It’s ok. The lamb was tasty and there was a decent amount of it. Plating was a little sloppy though, lol! Also, this place is super dim and really not that good for taking photographs. Samsung phones will probably fare better than iPhones 😂.
15th SMOKED MOZZARELLA CHICKEN
Olive Garden Italian Kitchen, Kuala Lumpur
Chicken breast tenderloins sautéed with roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes and ziti pasta in a rich and creamy smoked mozzarella cheese sauce. Nah.
16th EBI FRY MENTAIKO PASTA
Sushi Hiro SS2, Petaling Jaya
Fried shrimp with cod roe cream spaghetti. It’s alright. Pasta was a little overcooked but the shrimps were nice. RM9.90.
17th FETTUCCINE WITH PESTO (WITH CHICKEN & MUSHROOM)
Cinta Ria Cafe & Restaurant, Petaling Jaya
Wasn’t bad, but it’s not something I would order again. More salt in the pasta water would have benefited the dish slightly.
