I love my carbs and I’m delighted that Swensen’s, one of our favourite family-friendly restaurants, has four new fusion pastas on the menu from today to 30 April. The exciting flavours are definitely worth trying out!
My personal favourite is the Chili King Prawn Pasta ($17.50). Juicy king prawns are served over spaghetti in a tangy homemade chili crab sauce. The balanced sweet and spicy flavours really appeal to me and it is such a comforting dish. I can imagine Anya enjoying this even though it’s slightly spicy!
Adrian’s vote goes to the Japanese-inspired Short Ribs Shabu Shabu Pasta ($16.50). Angel hair pasta with tender shabu shabu beef, mushroom, quail eggs and cherry tomatoes in a homemade chicken broth is light on the palate but doesn’t compromise on taste. He’ll probably have to share it with Adam who is a big fan of soup.
The Crabmeat Squid Ink Pasta ($17.50) in a yummy cream sauce has sweet chunks of crabmeat and shimeji mushroom. Very tasty and hearty, this is perfect for those who love cream-based pasta dishes. Great for kids!
The Mac ‘N’ Chic Laksa ($16.50) with succulent chicken skewers and quail eggs over a bed of macaroni in Singaporean laksa paste is a spicy delight that is sure to please where Asian flavours are preferred.
Complete your pasta meal with any of the refreshing iced teas ($5.90). There is Blackcurrant with Passionfruit Tea, Peach Tea and Green Tea Apple Soda. I love the last one because it really helps to quench the thirst in the recent heatwave that we are having!
The pasta dishes and iced teas are available at all Swensen’s outlets (except Bugis Junction) until 30 April. Check them out while you can!
