Pasta de Gohan @ Sunway Pyramid

    pasta de gohan

    With branches scattered around Central, Marina Square, Orchard, Katong and East Coast, Paste de Waruku is definitely not something new for the Singaporeans and some Malaysians. However, I was pretty excited to find out that a spin off of Pasta de Waruku, Pasta de Gohan is opening their doors on the 9th of May but only manage to drop by one week after with fellow floggers. With a wide window display showcasing various plastic replicas of the 72 types of pasta found in their menu, our orderings are made easier.


    funky interior

    We were greeted with a bright, colorful and cheerful space, with white walls adorned with pictures of pastas and more plastic replicas of food as well as country style wood tables and chairs. Tables are comfortably separated, and the Japanese soft ballads playing in the background help set the mood for a casual and relaxed dining experience.

    We sat down, ordered our beverages, and began flipping through the menu. The menu is very extensive but we have no problems on settling down on a final choice because it is a pictorial menu with descriptions.

    The staff will thank you whenever your food is served.

    Spicy Cod Roe and Potato Pizza with Mayonnaise (RM 20.80)

    A pizza was ordered to satisfy the primordial hunger. The paper thin pizza topped with potatoes and spicy cod roes arrived in a rather cute wooden board. Slightly crispy, just enough so that you can hold it up without it flopping over, the pizza has won our heart. However, I find it a tad too expensive because for RM 20++ , the pizza if not filling at all, even If you chow down the whole pan.


    Japanese Style Doria with Scallop and Chicken (RM 26.80)

    Doria, loosely translated as rice gratin, features a bed of rice covered with cream-simmered prawns and scallops with gratin sauce. Just like our Hong Kong Char Chan Teng cheese bake rice, it is nothing fantastic.


    squid ink pasta

    Japanese Original Sauce – Spaghetti al Nero de Sepia (RM 28.80)

    Lo and behold! Visually unappetizing to some, the pitched black squid ink pasta is actually very good. Cooked al dente, the fettuccini give just enough bite to this dish and to my relief, the iodine taste of squid ink is not prominent at all. However, the girls are extremely cautious in their every move to avoid unsightly squid ink stain.

    Japanese Style Original Cream Sauce – Lobster Cabonara (RM 36.80)

    Another not to be missed pasta dish is the Lobster Carbonara. Priced below RM 40, it is quite a value for money because you are served with half a lobster! The sweetness of the lobster has attested to its freshness.

    Japanese Style Original Cream Sauce – Oyster and Bacon Carbonara (RM 25.80)

    Initially it sounds like a somewhat strange combination to pair oysters with bacons and pastas, but heck, they taste beautifully together. Fresh, plump oysters bursting with salt-of-the-sea brine scent are further enhanced by strips of crispy greasy bacons and curly ringlets of pasta.

    Japanese Original Sauce – Katsu Tamatoji (RM 25.80)

    Back to Basic. Good ol’ Katsudon with fried breaded pork cutlet, beautiful runny eggs, savory sweet sauce, minus the rice. Maybe the escalating price of rice has prompted them to substitute it with pasta? Who’s complaining because it’s lip smackingly good.

    Japanese Original Sauce – Eel and Egg (RM 23.80)

    Again, this is another variation of missing rice from the usual Unagi Tendon. I’m complaining this time, if only more chunks of unagi are given.

    Japanese Style Basil Sauce – Prawn and Octopus (RM 28.80)

    A luscious concoction of pasta and seafood drenched in their home made basil sauce – was delectable.

    Shiratama Macha Monaka Ice Cream (RM7.80)

    Desserts are unabashedly simple but delicious. The parfaits are basically the same soft ice cream, line with cornflakes and topped with different flavors according to your order. I find the Shiratama Macha Monaka Ice Cream served in a wafer shell cute. It’s nice to have a little chewy bite with sweet azuki bean paste and ice cream.

    When a new restaurant opens up, you can be sure they have put a great deal of time and effort into the establishment. With attentive services and delicious pasta dishes, Pasta de Gohan is one of the most appealing restaurants and is perfect for a casual dining out. It was nice meeting up with BBO, Christine, Aiwei and Jennifer again too!
