Pasta Brava
11 Craig Road
6227 7550

I didn't expect the place to be fully packed, what with it being a Monday. But to my surprise, it was a full house tonight and we could only have the table till 8pm since I didn't make any reservation in advance.

As usual, complimentary bread was served. It looked to be the normal French baguette.

As its name suggests, pasta and other traditional Italian fare is Pasta Brava's specialty. My Manicotti Ripieni di Zucca ($21++) was excellent. Perfectly al dente and filled with pumpkin, the moon shaped ravioli in red capsicum sauce was bursting with sweetness in every bite.

The Linguine Ai Frutti di Mare ($26++) looked real appetising. Flat spaghetti was tossed with a generous amount of prawns, clams, scallops, squid, crayfish, garlic and tomato sauce.

The scallops and prawns of the Stracci Ai Gamberie Capesante ($21++) were very fresh and went well with green peppercorn, white wine and saffron cream sauce.

Another homemade pasta was the Agnolotti Farcitti al Salmone ($21++). This was a savory version of the moon shaped ravioli as it's filled with salmon and served with tomato and cream sauce. I thought this was pretty good as well with the rather strong taste of salmon.

We decided not to have any desserts since our time was almost up, no thanks to my speed of eating. I think the pasta here is one of the better ones I've had! This will definitely be on my radar whenever I crave for loads of carb.

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!
