&SONS Bacaro, located at China Square, offers hearty good value lunches.
At a recent visit, I had the Carbonara ($8) - done in a Singaporean way - lots of sauce and cream, which was fine except that it had a lavendar after taste to it that I did not quite like which could have been due to the use of some olive oil.
Also from the pasta menu was the Beef Cheek Ravioli ($10). This dish was wonderful and is a must try at the restaurant. The beef cheek melts in the mouth and pairs well with the rich cream sauce.
For my main course I had the Beef Sirloin ($12),a relatively large 250 g piece of beef done medium that retained its juices. Not the best quality of meat but at this price point one cannot complain.
I got upsold on a drink of Amalfi Lemon Lemonade ($6) which was just diluted lemon juice. Beware of the drinks upsell.
Overall though, not the most fantastic of food, but at this price point it offers really good value, which is why it can be very popular at lunch.
