Fasta is a small cafe residing in South Beach, a large building complex near to Esplanade MRT Station. With only about 20 seats available to dine in, this cafe offers fusion pasta bowls in either warm or cold versions. You can even create your own pasta bowl from scratch! From choices of noodles, sides and meats, you get to customise your bowl of pasta with any of the ingredients you like, prices starting from $8.50. Otherwise, you can order from the standard list of pastas. Big eaters can upsize your bowl for $1.00, or add a Lava Egg for $1.50. One notable feature about this cafe is that food are served in takeaway bowls, so office workers who are not going to dine here can bring delicious pastas back to their workplace, hassle-free!
The menu and Pricing:
- SCALLOP WALLOP
As recommended by the chef, this simple yet flavourful bowl of linguine consists of scallop, crab meat, tomato and bacon with some nori strips. The food arrived promptly, piping hot in a takeaway bowl. It only comes with a single piece of scallop, but it is seared to a beautiful golden brown, and it tastes delicious! If you want a hearty meal for your lunch break, this is the dish you should try. Another recommended dish is the Shio Ba Mee ($9.50) for some garlic sauced, roasted pork meat. I have yet to try that, but it sounds yummy already!
- SMOKEY QUACKY DUCKY + LAVA EGG
Cost: $9.50 (+$2.00 for Lava Egg)
One of the more well received cold dish, this bowl of spaghetti comes with 4 slices of smoked duck meat, BBQ sauce and some vegetables. We think that the BBQ sauce compliments well with the noodles, reducing the dryness of the dish. A unique cold bowl for those who love cold pasta and smoked duck! The lava egg is a pretty good addition to the noodles too.
