The restaurant has a very jap feel as there were some wooden decorations around and we used chopsticks to eat the pasta! I thought that the tables arrangement was a little cramped and i was practically sitting right next to the customer next to me. One of the staff that served us was not so fluent in English and so we had to point out what we wanted. Can see her trying very hard! So kudos to her! Salad: Felt like onion salad as the veggies that forms the base of the salad was actually onion sliced into thin strips. It was a little too raw for me and but the salad sauce which had a tinge of saltiness covered up the rawness of the onion. Overall, very refreshing. First few sip of the soup tastes quite nice, after awhile, i thought it was increasing salty so i dipped the pasta into the soup and ate it like cold soba. The pasta was not presented as so! Had to arrange it as we were eating away happily and forgot to snap a pic! Pasta was springy and the duck meat was soft and tender. Olive oil added which boost the taste of it. 1-2 strips of corn to enhance the aesthetics of the dish. Again, pasta was not served as so. Have nearly finish eating this dish. The soup was creamy and flavorful, quite a lot of milk added i think. Generous serving of ingredients added includes carrots, potatoes and asparagus, bacon. The carrots and potatoes were cooked to the right temperature, not too hard and not too soft Lastly, the shrimp and squid. They gave 4 shrimps and 3 squids, had bacon in it as well. They also provided a slice of lemon to add to the pasta. I think the sourness of the lemon enhanced the taste of the pasta. Shrimp and squid were deep fried but the batter wasn't that thick, could taste the 2 ingredients very well.
What i didn't like about the restaurant is one has to go to the counter to make payment. The counter was right next to the kitchen so while you wait for the bill to be printed out, you have to keep dodging them as they come out with the piping hot dishes. This might be a business trick as you'll see the food being prepared and it smelt so nice; which makes you want to go back again!
