Pasta J [Pet Friendly]

The bunny with hubby and Pixie was at Pasta J last Saturday and it was a really positive experience. While the location isn’t the most convenient to get to, since we stay in the west, the trip was all worth it.

The moment we arrived, we were ushered to our table by a chirpy lady. A big plus point for me was that they welcomed my little pooch Pixie and even presented her with a bowl of ice cool water, even without me asking!

Pixie is mighty happy with her bowl of ice water!
The whole atmosphere at Pasta J was really upbeat, with friendly staff who were attentive and friendly throughout our visit.
Pasta J is known for their Pesto, so I had to try it. I ended up with the Pesto Pasta with prawns and baby squid ($22.90). Sure enough, the Pesto did not disappoint. It was fresh, with the right notes of nuttiness. The prawns were a tad dry but the baby squid was flame grilled to perfection with a slight charred exterior.

The hubby, a mac and cheese fan, ordered the Mad Mac & Cheese 3.0 ($16.90), served with pork sausage patty. While it was not the best Mac & Cheese we tasted (we would have preferred a stronger cheese taste), it is still fairly decent and the ingredients were really generous. There was a heaping amount of bacon and pork in every single bite, yet the taste was not at all overwhelming.

We also had the Home-made thick cut bacon ($10.90). The pork belly was cooked till crispy on the outside and offered a good chewy texture on the inside. It was also well seasoned and had a good balance of sweetness and saltiness.
