Now one of the jokes among ourselves is that every time we visit a nice new food outlet, it will have close down by the time we go back there for a second visit. But happily this was not the case with this little pasta place with a cute little name “With a Pinch of Salt” at Tanjong Katong. The last time I was there must have been something like 5 years ago?
Anyway I was in the mood for pasta but it has to be cheap and the place should be air con, what with the sizzling heat that we have here. So after some thoughts, we decided to head down to Tanjong Katong to try our luck and happily, it was still there. Same old place. Same old girly decor and like the previous visit, some people were having a birthday celebration there.
The thing about this place is that beside the cheap and good food, the owner seems to doesn’t want to take things too seriously with all these cute little messages everywhere.
Beside pasta and pizza and other nice stuff, the Chef also whips out mean cookies. We were given some to sample and much as I want to buy them, I knew I will finish the whole lot in double quick time so I had to regretfully pass. Perhaps nearer to Chinese New Year.
And since I was only craving for pasta, I had a seafood aglio olio pasta. The price of each plate of very decently sized pasta cost only between $9.90 to $12.90. Really good value for money.
We also had a plate of mussels in white wine to share
The food are not fantastically great. But at the prices they at and with such portion, I can’t complain. And service was excellent too.
I found out later that they have some really good stuff which we did not order so I think I will be heading back soon instead of waiting another few years.
