Chicken Teriyaki with Mayonnaise Sauce Wafu Pizza ($13.80/ Mini)
Served on a wooden board, the pizza is very paper thin and cripsy with well seasoned and tender chicken slices. Maybe a bit salty for some.
YakiNiku with Yakitori Sauce Wafu Pizza ($13.80/ Mini)
Another paper thin crispy pizza, topped with juicy, tender, paper thin beef slices and sweet in the mouth onion slices. Another great combination.

Noisette ($8.50/ slice)
Chocolate Sponge, Vanilla Sponge, Vanilla Sponge, Dark Chocolate Mousse, Hazelnut Praline Mousse, Chocolate Ganache
It tastes smooth and not too chocolatey.
Doux Reves ($8.50/ slice)
Chocolate Sponge, Almond Dacquoise, Dark Chocolate Caramel Mousse, Banana Mousse, Gold Silvery Glaze
This one is fruity, chocolatey and nutty at the same time. Quite a combination.
Almond Dacquoise, Chocolate Sponge, Praline Feuillete (Crispy Crunch), Dark Chocolate Shiny Glaze
This one is my dining partner's favourite as it is the most chocolatey among the cakes which we have tried. It tastes bitter and smooth, balances off by its sweet honey comb taste and very hard to break Praline Feuillete base.
Vanilla Sponge, Strawberry Coulis, Strawberry Mousse, White Chocolate Mousse
Those who like pudding will like this one as I feel that its texture is more like pudding than cake. The layer of sponge cake is at a minimum here.
Vanilla Sponge, Fresh Strawberries, Blueberries, Fresh Whipped Cream
At first look, it reminds me of strawberry shortcake. It tastes quite light and fresh, except for the frozen tasting strawberries on top.
Anushka ($8.50/ slice)
Almond Dacquoise, Mango Mousse, Mango Filling, Fresh Mango
This is my favourite among all the cakes which I have tried. Nutty almond meringue holds the light and smooth mango mousse together, creating a balance between the two.
Overall the food is great. The cakes has thin layers of sponge cakes to hold the thick layers of filling. I have only tried half of the cakes available in the menu. Do check out the website ( http://bit.ly/XzqBXG ) for the full list of cakes.
Fusion, I would call it - a cross between Japanese flavors and Western pasta. Yes, that's Pasta De Waraku for you.
The casual restaurant was nothing to boast of - simple wooden, rectangular tables with simple, matching seats. A couple of Japanese paintings hung around the walls, but that was about it - no fuss, no muss.
A simple garden salad consisting of lettuce and tomato was being served to us first, while waiting for our pasta dishes. Don't be fooled by the boring-looking combination - we had thought it would be tasteless, but on the contrary, the sweet-sour dressing set the vegetables on a tastebud rampage - it was oishi ("tasty" in Japanese)!
The first pasta dish - the Scallops and Asparagus Spaghetti - was strong in a delicious garlic-based flavor. Yes, the taste was surprisingly good, and the spaghetti of the right texture (springy, not too soggy). Infused with the goodness of two of my favorite ingredients - bouncy scallops and crunchy asparagus - this dish made my evening.
