I thought I was crazy to drive all the way to Changi City Point from the West just to have lunch with a group of my friends who stays in the East. This place was highly recommended by one of them. This was the first time that I come to this place and I couldn't find the entrance to the carpark of this building because of the construction going on in its vicinity. I was really not in a very good mood when I reached the restaurant, due to the road hoggers on the way and the circling around to get into the carpark.
My appetite was greatly affected but I still ordered a Vongole Aglio Olio set out of obligation. The set came with a soup and a one-time serving at the salad bar.
When I looked at the items on the salad bar, it didn't interest me at all. But since I already ordered it, I just took what seemed acceptable to me.
This was what I have gotten. All my friends said that I should take more, like pile the bowl up to a mountain. But that was really not my style. When I took a bite into the salad in the bowl, I regretted not taking more. Even though they weren't the usual type of food that I would eat, they were good especially the radish, very chunchy. The sesame sauce that I added tickles my appetite. The sweetness of the lychee lifted my sunken mood. All the frustration I had on the way was instantly remove.
The miso soup was light and pleasant, not like those in the Sushi chain that have strong salty miso taste.
The vongole aglio olio was delicious too, better than those Italian restaurants of a similar price range. But it's a little too oily for me though. As usual, not enough clams for me.
The nett price of this set was $17.20. They do have other type of set combinations and they really have a good selection of various types of pasta.
The restaurant was packed with lunch time working crowd. It's better to come early before lunch time if you intend to try it out.
