My experience at Tokyo Pasta Mario (Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited for a food tasting session at Tokyo Pasta Mario located at Wisma Atria's Food Republic. If you ask me where can I get delicious and affordable pasta, I would definitely recommend Tokyo Pasta Mario because their prices are made affordable and the price ranged are between $5.60 - $10.00. Tell me where can you get good quality pastas at $5.60? And also a major plus point is the waiting time, usually in restaurants you still have to wait for quite awhile as they prepare the food but here at the food court you can get it within minutes of waiting time.


When you come up the escalator, you will be able to see Tokyo Pasta Mario at the right side of the food court. It is very easy to spot the stall because it's actually quite prominent. 

Address: 
Tokyo Pasta Mario
Stall 11 
Wisma Atria, Food Republic
435 Orchard Road 

Operating hours:
Monday - Thursday: 10:00 - 22:00
Friday - Saturday: 10:00 - 23:00
Sunday: 10:00 - 22:00



In case if you don't know, Tokyo Pasta Mario is a mixture of Italian tradition and Japanese style! They serve a selection of delicious pastas, Japanese Teppanyaki and Pizzas! 




$7.80 

To start the ball rolling, I ordered the Mushroom and Bacon With Osen Egg in Miso Cream Pasta. The pasta is also topped with fried onion to enhance at better taste. To me, I could smell a strong fragrance of the mushroom and it definitely raised the standards of this dish. It kinda tasted like the Japanese version of Carbornara, though it's a bit dry I think it can be improved by added more sauce over the pasta. Overall, it was worth ordering this! 


$9.80

Who have ever tried the black squid ink pasta? I always wanted to order this but by it's looks you already won't feel like trying it because it's "black". Some people might find the picture deceiving but don't judge by it's cover. The pasta was rich and incredibly delicious! Though it's my first time trying this dish, it was deletable but after a while you will kinda get bored of the taste. So it depends actually! Don't mind ordering this next time! 



$8.80

Similar to the first dish I tried but it's served with crabstick, brocoli and pieces of prawns. My least favourite among the two other dishes because the texture was very dry but it can be improved by adding more sauce into it.

My experience at Charlie Brown Cafe (Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)

Awhile ago, I was invited back to Charlie Brown Cafe as I was told that they had revamped their menu and there were a few new offerings on their menu. Charlie Brown Cafe now has 2 outlets mainly in Singapore, one located at Cathay Cinleisure Orchard, a popular youth destination, and One KM Mall at Paya Lebar.  The entire cafe is designed in a Charlie Brown theme, if you had watched the movie, Peanuts or you grew up watching Charlie Brown, then you should be familiar with the characters in the show/movie. The entire cafe takes up about 30-40 seats and the ambience was conducive.  Root Beer Float & Coffee Macchiato Shot Mashed Potatoes  Price: $4.20  Made from fresh potatoes topped with gravy and chicken chipolata (sausage). The mashed potato was fluffy and wasn't lumpy just maybe the sauce was slightly overpowering which diminishes the taste of the mashed potatoes. I would prefer if the sauce was lesser. However, it was a great combination of addi

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes). Address: Kim's Family Food (Korean Restaurant) 17 Lorong Kilat #01-06 Kilat Court Singapore 598139 Telephone: 6465 0535 (advised to make a reservation before you come) Entrance of Kim's Family Food  Qin Pin and Qi Man's peace twist sign photobomed this pic!  Full house okay! That's why I said you need to make a reservation before you come, if not you will be queueing outside! Btw, this is just part of the restaurant. The is restaurant is combin

My experience at Hai Xian Lao 海鲜捞 (Shaw House)

I have always been a huge fan of Hotpot, Korean BBQ and Mookata (Thai-steamboat) restaurants. I used to remember back in my polytechnic days, I would have them every once a week. Hotpot can be pricy for a student/NSF like me. Hence, I would prefer to visit a restaurant that offers buffet style. This is because you can enjoy unlimited servings of food provided if you can finish them. I feel that it usually makes my money more well-spent. Additionally, having steamboat with your friends and family fosters bonding and a good time with your friends. I was recently invited by Hai Xian Lao to try out their hotpot.  Hai Xian Lao  Prior to attending this tasting, I have actually visited their restaurant quite a few times with my friends (non-sponsored). I first got to know HXL from a video that was featured by NOC Food King. Aiken mentioned that the prawn broth was fantastic and full of flavour. Hence, I was curious and went to try it out. Truth to be told, I personally find that HX
