    Conventional spaghetti or fettuccine are getting boring. Why not try out a serving of rustic mac and cheese with a bacon twist instead? Milligram Cafe's approach towards this particular dish seemed fairly "Jamie Oliver-ish" and that is a great thing. The flavours are absolutely delicious while the cheese helps bind each macaroni together, giving it that depth of taste and body. Apart from the stunning plating style, the mac and cheese also comes with a side of toast served with a sunny side up.

    Wake Me Up Cafe

    Sometimes, a plate of homemade pasta can be some of the best dishes you can have and that’s what you’ll get in this café. Homemade creamy pesto sauce covers this plate of pasta, giving off a rich and flavourful texture. The additional topping of mushrooms and nuts too play their role in giving you a crunchy and appetizing feel.

    Closer Kitchen & Espresso Bar is a stunning looking cafe that resembles a lot like a modern office. With copious amount of glass used along with black steel frame, it surely does set the mood for some work. What better way to pair that with then a serving of well-seasoned and nicely cooked pasta? Not to mention the generous used of scallops in a tomato base sauce. It is absolutely delicious!

    A plate of aglio olio pasta is a classic and one can never go wrong in serving one. Likewise Paradiso's seafood aglio olio, a spoonful of the lean pasta is handful. The classic herbally taste of oregano and spices is evident to the tongue and does not disappoint its eater. The few pieces well cooked prawns do justice to the whole aftertaste. A mouthful of one is more than enough with a complete plating of cuts of sun dried tomatoes as a finishing.

    Tips

    For a richer taste, do top the pasta with cheese powder and ask the waiter for assistance perhaps.

    Things to expect

    A decent amount of pasta in one dish. Just nice to cater for a hungry stomach.

    Garage 51

    Despite the countless amount of uniquely crafted items at Garage 51, they too have something simple and pleasant. Take their spaghetti aglio olio with salmon for example. The pasta is cooked perfectly al-dante, tossed with sliced bell peppers, salmon and seasoned with salt pepper. The combination is nothing much to shout about, but the way it's being executed certainly does.

    Spitalfield’s signature Carbonara consists of meticulously prepared ingredients and delicate cooking methods. The seasoning of the pasta is perfectly balanced with the savourness from the Parma Ham and the richness from the cream. Also both beautifully done in both presentation and taste, is the clean and sleek egg tucked nicely on the bed of pasta.

    This simple and humble serving of creamy tomato base spaghetti is truly one of a kind. Do not be fooled by the looks of it as the dish packs in a whole lot of flavour. There is a rich essence of seafood beneath the cream and acidity of the tomato sauce. Really well balanced, pasta is cooked perfectly and the chunks of salmon are certainly generous.

    There is sufficient variety in terms of the pastas available at Coffee Sprex. Whether it is something simpler like the Spicy Joe, or the restaurant’s signature “Stewie”, there is a lot to go around when Coffee Sprex deals with this Italian classic. The Spicy Joe pasta certainly hits the right notes. It is rich and flavourful just like a plate of pasta should be. The sweetness, and tangy flavour of the tomatoes go well with the pasta, while the spiciness doesn’t overwhelm it; overall providing a very balanced dish. The “Stewie” on the other hand is a slightly different package. A lighter pork stew base is used as the sauce for this pasta dish, which works surprisingly well with the pasta. The pieces of pork ribs help add richness and texture to the dish, which help to elevate the dish further. Overall, Coffee Sprex is more than capable of serving up a great plate of pasta.

    Tips

    Keep an open eye for the shop as it is quite difficult to spot in the row of shops.

    Things to expect

    The plate can be upsized with sausages for big eaters.

    Best with

    Have the Earl of Passion tea with the Spicy Joe, the lemongrass tea with the "Stewie", or have coffee to compliment both plates.
