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.

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!
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!
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!
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.
