Interesting flavors for homemade pastas

http://sainttpauli.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/platypus-test-kitchen/ Homemade pasta dishes start from $15.50,  portions are considerably  substantial,  where you have the optional of topping up an addition $4 for a soup and a drink.  I was rather fortunate that S happened to be working in that area that very summer, as we trudged our way to the bistro a little earlier, averting the much anticipated lunch crowd which followed suit as soon as we placed our orders. Chunky Mushroom Soup ($3.50)
The mushroom soup was unfortunately extremely underwhelming where the overall earthy flavor profile you’d look for in a mushroom soup was severely lacking.  Then again, you can’t exactly complain considering how much you actually pay. Squid Ink Tagiolini, Scallop Ragout ($15.50)   The squid ink pasta turned out to be a huge disappointment where the perfect al dente noodles were let down by the lack of seasoning, not forgetting the fact that the overbearing garlic flavor masked  the squid ink flavor you’d natural expect, along with the sprightliness of the cherry tomatoes as well.  The scallops served in the pasta though were perfectly cooked, what a pity. Lobster & Crab Ravioli in Vodka Sauce ($18.50) Fortunately, the Lobster and Crab Meat Ravioli’s were the saving grace of the meal where a single portion contain a substantial amount of 6-7 Ravioli’s generous filled with chunks and morsels on fresh crab meat within sheets of pasta parcels that were of the perfect consistency: not too dense yet not to thin to the extent that it would end up too soggy, possesing bite. The rich vodka cream sauce accompanying the pasta was superbly executed as well, where the kitchen had certainly struck jackpot in achieving a balance of  tartness, tangy, robust flavors that married together perfectly in a cream based sauce which very often tends to be a little on the rich side.

A true hidden gem.

Tucked away in a peaceful little corner on the 2nd floor of Clifford Centre, I have to say one who isn't familiar with Raffles Place might find difficulty locating this gem as I initially did. But trust me on this; this restaurant is worth the little hunt. Besides the clean and comfortable
