Pasta de Waraku
#02-82/83 The Central
Yong Rui drove us over to Clarke Quay from Chinatown after lunch and we went to Pasta de Waraku for desserts. This has a similar concept to Shokudo Japanese Pasta & Pizza as both specialize in Japanese pasta served in various different ways. Since its focus is on pasta, the selection of desserts is rather limited.
The Tiramisu Parfait ($8.80++) is vanilla soft serve ice cream sitting on a bed of cornflakes, topped with fruits and tiramisu cake, and served in an elegant tall glass. Parfaits are extremely flexible desserts as they can be easily customized by adding whatever toppings you like in layers.
The tiramisu cake gives a nice bite to the smooth ice cream. I like the contrast of the sweetness of the banana and the slightly tart strawberries. Other than that, this is decent but not outstanding.
Maccha Ice Cake ($6.80++) is actually just green tea ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and garnished with red beans and chopped yellow jello.
Contrary to its misleading name, this is not a cake at all. The green tea flavor is strong enough with the slight bitter aftertaste I like. However, I think this is a bit over-priced for such a simple dessert.
Service was quite efficient since we were there at the off-peak hours. Diners facing the window can enjoy a view of the whole clarke quay area and also watch people being flung into the sky by the G-Max reverse bungy.
