all time fav. for pastas

I love their pastas, i like the special sauces that i can mix around with and the variety of pastas that i can select. Recently i fell in love with tortelini with cheese... :)

Besides serving good pastas at reasonably price & portion. They do serve nice pot of mussels accompanied with thick fries. Personally, i prefer it in thai sauce.

Next time, i shall try the sausages with rosti...

However, their beverages taste abit bland after you had their the flavorful dishes...

e.g their caramel tea, peach tea & lemon tea... can be sweeter...

well run Ambush outlet!

A great set lunch place, with excellent selections from $9.90-11.90. Had the Paella seafood.
Ample portions and tasty. They make it with bacon bits and sausage slices with enough
Tangy tomato paste. I really like their paella, craved it since i had it at their Taka outlet.
Was never a fan of paella with chicken.

This is also the place inthe West to get your Paulener Brauhaus beer (bottled) and
German sausages fix while you people watch shoppers passing you away from
the Sg pore heat. Mains like cod, steak etc are reasonably priced.

Ambush in a battle

Ambush 
boasts of being a fast casual european dining place and has been around in Singapore for many years. For a weekday set lunch of only $9.90 & above, it is rather affordable in contrast with other more pricey european dining options.


Of course, it really wasn't any European dining. My mother tried to order some pasta that was widely available in Paris, but the waiter said 'we only have spaghetti, linguine and penne'.    Even Pasta Mania has more options than Ambush, so why do they boast of being an European dining center?

I ordered a  Bockwurst with Cranberry Butter Rice and Fries for $9.80 and a Salmon Fillet, Thai Basil Sauce for $11.90.

The Unexpected

I was quite surprised by the great taste of the mini sausage here. I prefer it than their ambush paella. The other unexpected thing is their waiter will give you the bill without your requesting... they were not closing by the time so it remains as a myth...

squid ink pasta

I love the squid ink pasta here, with scallops and fish roe! Taste is not too over-empowering, i like how the whole thing has a sort of butter-y taste. However it tends to get a little messy because your mouth will turn black. Cabonara was pretty disappointing though, too blend and nothing very special about it.
