Many of us will be familiar with Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore
with its flagship branch along Bukit Timah Road. Servicing quality Italian food at affordable price, Pasta Fresca has been around since 1988 which is a good 25 years. It has expanded with 5 outlets around the island as well as another 4 in China. It is quite an impressive story by itself.
In conjunction with the festive season, Pasta Fresca is having a 5 course Chirstmas Set
($39.90) that is available until31 December 2013
. The value for money 5 course set meal comes with a soup, salad, pasta, main course and dessert.
Starting the 5 course christmas set is the Pumpkin Soup
with cream and herbed croutons. A rich and hearty soup to whet up the appetite for the rest of the meal.
Next up for the 5 course christmas set is the Rucola and Smoked Salmon Salad
. The healthy plate of garden has sauteed mushrooms, walnuts, cheery tomatoes and parmasan shaves. A delightful plate of salad with flavours and different textures.
For the pasta dish of the 5 course christmas set, the Squid Ink Linguine
was well received by the diners. Cooked to perfection with a nice al dente bite, I like the use of the red pepper sauce and the hint of lemon zest to balance off the saltiness of squid ink. The only shy of the dish is the prawns. Although crunchy we suspected it was not fresh live prawns as they were lacking in the natural sweetness.
For the 5 course christmas set, there is a choice of main in the Pan Fried Breaded Sword Fish
or Grilled Turkey Breast
. The breaded sword fish came in a mediterranean sauce and buttered vegetables. The firm meat of the sword fish was pan fried to a delectable bite. The grilled turkey breast with balsamic reduction, rucola, cherry tomatoes and grilled vegetables was surprisingly good. I usually don't enjoy turkey because its meat is tough but the execution was so excellent that I thought I was having pork.
Ending the 5 course christmas set is the Italian's Traditional Christmas Panettone
that is served with vanilla gelato and chocolate sauce. The sweet bread loaf went well with the sauces but I thought it was a bit on the dry side.
