Pasta de Waraku
#02-82/83 The Central
6534 8085


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.



One thing I noticed was that the table for two was small as the table was crowded with many different condiments and a stand for the menu. These probably took up almost half of the table space! Ask to sit at a larger table if you like space—unless you are there during the peak dining hours which may leave you with little choice.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
