The Pasta Boutique – Bedok, Singapore


Recently I was contacted by one of the partners of this little stall located in Bedok area to try out their food. So I brought along some foodies who were not working on one of the days I was off.
Located at a corner of a coffeeshop, the stall stood out from its modern outlook. But definitely overshadowed by some household stalls that were there for the longest time. Nevertheless, we ordered their signatures and see the reviews below:

Creamy Bacon & Mushroom Pasta ($9.50) – I love this so much. Love how the creamy sauce is reduced into the pasta and yet still holding the al dente-ness. Very yummy dish!
Chilli Crab Pasta ($10.50). Taste is a fusion Asian taste with kaffir lime leaves on top. Very generous in crab meat toppings.
Salted Egg Prawn Ravioli ($13.80) Four large pieces of homemade prawn ravioli, salted egg sauce, chilli padi and curry leaves. The skin was a little thick for us but the taste was good.
Hearty Platter (For 2 at $29.80) – A great deal which consist of 220gm Striploin Steak, 160gm Lamb Chop, 250gm Chicken Chop. Served with Mashed potato and Ratatouille. Choice of sauce: Mustard, Black Pepper, Mushroom.

Rating: 4/5.

Portion: Average.

Service: Order at counter and food will be served to table.

I was invited to this place for my birthday treat by Stanley Leong, 938 Live’s The Living Room Host. We celebrated not only my birthday but also another friend, Nur’s birthday.

I parked my car strategically below nearer to the office block and took a lift up to the first floor. The restaurant is located just at the lobby of the office block lifts, on the left turn after coming out of the car park lift. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and shortly, the boss of the place, Andrea came and talked to us. Very friendly native Italian with a very strong accent.

The whole idea about SI is to bring native home-cooked Italian food to the masses in Singapore. It may not be very cheap in this restaurant, but it is a lot more affordable than it’s counterparts around the vicinity especially the one on the opposite side of the building. Authentic is the word and the whole night we were treated with Andrea’s hospitality, coming back to check on us on the food, treating us to some of his home-cooked specialties and wines. Overall, we were awed by the warmth and the delicious tasting food.
