Hidden Gem

Found this restaurant from Lady Iron Chef, whom rated it as Hidden Gem in the East. And it truly is! Situated in the midst of the popular Arab St, the restaurant was not full even on Sat night. Wary as we might, me and my partner proceeded anyway since we had a reservation. The restaurant ambience is surprisingly nice, with candles and warm lighting, perfect for a romantic dinner. However they opened the door to the street so at times, it could be a little noisy. We ordered Sunny Side Up pasta and Lamb Shank, with salmon bruschetta as an appetiser. I am a cream pasta lover, and the Sunny Side Up has a stunningly unique blend of saltier carbonara and creamier alfredo. It was tremendous and I fell in love with it. My partner, on the other hand, love tomato-based dish, and instantly fell in love with the generous portion of Lamb shanks that is served with a more herb-ish version of bolognaise sauce. Overall, this restaurant is my new favorite in haji lane.They have a few wine selection and desserts which I have not tried. Will definitely return.

I had the Lambshank Provenzale as it was on "today's special" at 50% off. It was good.I also tried the Mamas Pesto which my colleague ordered. For a meatless pasta, it was really flavourful. The Bruschetas were good too. The ice-cream that came with the Flourless Chocolate Cake was 1 of the best I've ever tasted! So creamy but light. The Flourless Chocolate Cake was overshadowed by it. Service was a bit slow though. If you are in a hurry
