The plethora of cuisines along Temple Street in Chinatown is not unfamiliar to locals and tourists. Further diversifying this melting pot is Pasta Licious, an eatery offering pasta, and much more.
Pasta Licious did its market research well. They knew a pasta shop was lacking along Temple Street, so they opened one. They also knew that folks like you and I like to chat over affordable beer, so they kept their beers and snacks reachable. What surprised me was they were well aware that bingsus were the current hot favourite for desserts, so even though bingsus typically do not pair with pastas, they did the unthinkable – bingsu on their menu. Super no reason for you not to visit.
Pasta Licious has got interesting pastas such as Spcial Pumpkin and Truffle Mushroom Carbonara. But since it allows you to customise your pasta (of course right), I obligedly did so and chose my favourite two toppings done aglio olio style. I liked that they used whole strips of bacon as opposed to bacon bits. It’s just more shiok to munch on.
The chicken thigh was so juicy! It is quite tough to get the timing of the grilling right, and I’m glad Pasta Licious done it well.
Pasta Licious is a family business, so expect to be served by your typical local friendly aunty. If you chat with her enough, she will share that the cook behind your dishes is actually her daughter. You can hear a mother’s pride and joy as she shares her daughter’s achievement with you. Really heart warming, this place.
