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.

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt. You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme. 

Ambience: 7.5/10 
Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme. 
Tropical Smoothies 
(Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20 
I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-balance and not too sweet.
