Stopping for a quick lunch at NUH's Coffee Bean, I decided on their Herb & Tomato Fusilli. This is a vegetarian option, (and the only one at that for the range of pastas) and cost around $11. It doesn't look like much but it's actually real comfort food, with a sizeable portion of fusilli in chunky tomato sauce, mozarella on the side as well as a thin & long stick of bread.The tomato sauce is slightly watery, and resting at the bottom of the pasta is olive oil (which you have to mix in!).

The tomato sauce is slightly watery, and resting at the bottom of the pasta is olive oil (which you have to mix in!). The cheese provides a nice creamy texture to the sauce when mixed in, and the stringiness is pleasant with the slightly tangy tomato sauce. The bread is also surprisingly aromatic, and while I would have liked it more crusty, it was definitely tasty (tastes much better than the plain white it appears as!).
It's great comfort food when generously spooned into your mouth while hot, at around $11 it's slightly pricey, but NUS students get a discount. The service here is also super -the staff is patient with your requests/questions, and they're efficient in clearing tables too, all the while maintaining a smile on their faces. Pleasant!
