Sister branch to the popular brunch spot Arbite in Serangoon Gardens, A for Arbite is a spacious and relaxed restaurant focused on high quality dining while making sure diners get value for money. Owner-Chef Marc Wee carries over his signature handmade Arbite pastas here, but the menu travels in new directions, too.

Don't be mistaken with Arbite @ Serangoon Gardens, though they are sister company, they have different concept of food as well as layout. Over at A for Arbite, the classroom inspired atmosphere just gives it a more casual, back-to-school feel. One thing I love about A for Arbite is their generous portion of food!

The dishes are all created by adding fusion to local delights, such as Salted Egg Crab Pasta.
A photo worthy dish, the name itself draws our anticipation! The ideal way of having this is to mess it up in order to get a good proportion of salted egg in each bite. Somehow I would prefer penne paste added to this dish, probably because the length of zita pasta is longer and it gets too much.

If you are looking for something out of the norm, you can try A for Arbite for a change :)

Amex 30 Licious Menu Review

I had the opportunity recently to review the Amex 30 licious menu at A For Arbite which is effective from 3 Nov to 2 Dec.

The meal starts with either the choice of a duck roll or seafood soup. I liked both, as I am a big fan of duck and liked the gaminess of the duck. However, the tomato based seafood soup will probably be my choice as I liked the strong tastes associated with the dish.

For the main course, one has a choice between the boeuf and the crabmeat pasta. Those who lover stronger flavours would stick to the beef while the crab pasta is a lot lighter.

For dessert, go for the jelly with the mango ice cream, a very hearty way to end the meal.

Overall, expect large portions and a good value at just $30 when you pay with your American Express credit card.

I'm glad to have the privilege to attend's A for arbite tasting session. A for Arbite has a big dining area with up to 64 seating capacity at Aliwal Street. Great place to grab some awesome small bites to share and big bites for feasting. We tasted 9 dishes, will list the signature's here. 

Salted Egg Crab Pasta ($24) - Zita pasta, salted egg, crab meat, chilli, deep fried soft shell crab and curry leave oil. One of my favorite mains here, very successful fusion of local and western fare. It would be even better if the salted egg flavor could be richer. The soft shell crab on the other hand was the bomb, crispy, moist and flavorful. It got me 'Wow' at my first bite.

XO Lobster Pasta ($34) - Squid ink tagliolinni, half Boston lobster, mushrooms, goma sauce and 'xo' chilli. This is A for Arbite signature and most popular dish. I was impressed at how well the xo work together with the pasta, simply amazing. 

Salmon Florentine ($16) - Smoked salmon, poached eggs, cream spinach, burnt butter hollandaise and fresh greens. And your choice of Thosai (rice and semolina crepe) or herbed foccacia. Interesting dish while pairing egg Benny in the crepe.

Indeed a hidden gem with many innovative dishes I won't be able to find in other cafes. Coffee isn't too bad, they are using Tiong Hoe coffee beans.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
