The Pasta Boutique
Blk 539 Bedok North Street 3, New Century Food House Coffeeshop #01-619 Singapore 460539
They are famous for their pastas, which are topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Their mashed potatoes are homemade with fresh potatoes, not premix. They brine their chicken to maintain its moisture while cooking, and source their 220gm Australian grass-fed beef from Huber’s Butchery. They baste the steak, which other Western stalls don’t usually do. Recommended: chilli crab pasta ($10.50), spicy prawn pasta ($10.50), creamy bacon & mushroom pasta ($9.50), chicken chop ($8.80), and Mediterranean ribeye steak ($18.50).
Halal burgers at about $5. Recommended: char-grilled teriyaki chicken burger with sesame coleslaw, sunny side up egg and bonito flakes.
