ah, the lure of pork fat and cheese – and wine and pasta. I have a soft spot for italian eating – it’s hearty and delicious, and comforting and fresh with its honest, clear flavours.
pasta fresca da salvatore has been around for quite a while (nearly three decades!), and it’s one of those places that feels spectacularly appropriate for a cozy dinner with friends and wine. I was gobsmacked by the sheer range of food on the menu – as so would you be, even ignoring the fact that they allow you to customize anything from the noodle to the sauce they sit in (very good for fussy eaters who insist on customising their food a particular way – hi mum!)
I’m going to cap off this year with what must be my favorite cafe chain in singapore – it’s an oldie, but a goodie. the cakes are consistent, the places are modern-cool and casual, and you never have to deal with too many teenagers at the joints.
last one of the cartoony shots! (until I change my mind, that is).
beautiful slices of classic-and-more tiramisu done right at this small store at the basement of the central at clarke quay. don’t be fooled by the dainty entremet-like appearance of the slice – it’s a hefty portion of mascarpone layered with properly-soaked lady finger biscuits, and very delicious (almost surprisingly so).
