If we had a penne for our thoughts each time, we wouldn’t stop thinking. Of pasta.
There are tons of dishes we’d recommend from their seasonally refreshed menu, but the Sumatran Crab Tagliolini is a fave. Slurp up the al dente homemade pasta with a laksa reduction (!), with soft and chunky servings of crab.
130E Minden Rd, Singapore 248819
NEXT: The Marmalade Pantry →
This simple spot’s got pastas and risottos, soups, cakes and more. We say combine all of that for a perfect hearty meal. Whether you’re after a simple Carbonara or something more uncommon like the Truffled Field
Mushroom Risotto, this restaurant is a consistent option, and a convenient one too, seeing that it’s right in the heart of town!
#03-22 ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn, Singapore 238801
NEXT: Ah Bong’s Italian →
This eatery’s name hints that it’s not your typical Italian restaurant. Ah Bong’s Italian started out as a humble pasta stand in a hawker centre – hence the typical hawker-style plates – before eventually expanding into their own space. Even then, they still serve possibly cheapest pasta for its standard. The menu changes each day, but look out for hot favourites like Fresh Pesto as well as Crab Meat Aglio Olio.

NEXT: 63Paragon →
What’s the deal with 63? It’s the precise temperature at which to cook an egg to ensure the yolk and white are the exact same consistency. It’s with this same precision that the kitchen here prepares its dishes, like their King Prawn Pasta. Mmm!
#04-09 Paragon, 290 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238859
NEXT: Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar →
Singaporean cuisine is as hard to perfect as a good Italian pasta, but Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar offers the best of both worlds. The Chilli Crab Pasta packs a punch, both in terms of the copious chunks of crab meat as well as the spicy kick of chilli. And, in true Singaporean fashion, the dish also comes with fried Asian buns to mop up the last of the sauce off your plate.
#01-03, 56 Tanglin Rd, Singapore 247964
NEXT: P.S. Cafe →
As much as we love fancy, creative renditions of pasta, sometimes we find ourselves hankering for a good ol’ Aglio Olio, and hardly anyone does it better than P.S.Cafe. The restaurant on Dempsey Hill has a fantastic ambiance – it’s cosy enough for a family dinner, or romantic enough for a date night out. Little wonder it’s popular among expats!
