Healthy pasta? @ Pasta de Gohan, Sunway Pyramid

“Tankuferwaytinherisur pizza !" The pizza was plonked in front of us. Huh??? A and I looked at each other bemused. What was the waitress trying say?

(Prawn and Oyster Pizza - RM20.80)
We were too hungry to figure it out and proceeded to wolf down the Prawn and Oysters Pizza. Served on a circular wooden board, the pizza was cut into four wafer thin slices. The pizza crust was lovely, thin, crispy and flaky. It tasted like savoury biscuits. The pizza was quite delicious but oysters turned out chewy, I think it was overdone. The word dainty best describes the portion of the pizza. A bite and a chew and it's gone! We had 2 slices each of the pizza and it did little to take the edge off our hunger. At RM20.80, we felt it was pricey on account of the tiny portion served. We licked the crumbs off our lips and eagerly waited for the Lobster Carbonara.

‘Thank you for waiting!’ the next waitress chirped as she slid the pièce de résistance on the table. Ooohh…. So that was what the first waitress was trying to say.
(Lobster Carbonara - RM36.80)

Doesn’t the picture set your saliva glands off? Ok.... maybe not.. the picture doesn't do it. But take my word for it, a magnificent half of a lobster sits on top of a pile of pasta well coated with the creamy carbonara sauce. The lobster was baked to perfection with a topping of parmesan. For RM36.80, it ain’t half bad value for money.

I wasn’t quite satisfied with the portions I had for dinner, but resisted the temptation to order another main, so resolutely moved on to share dessert with A.
(Tiramisu Parfait - RM10.80)

After deliberating between the Oreo Banana Parfait and the Tiramisu Parfait, we settled for the Tiramisu Parfait. The parfait was made up of layered soft vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, topped with a delicious block of tiramisu? and fruits. Dig right to the bottom of the glass and you’ll get to the bed of crunchy cornflakes. Nice!

I was initially skeptical about Japanese-Italian fusion style pasta, but I must say, the dishes turned out quite well. With 72 dishes to choose from; one will not run out of choices anytime soon. I can’t speak for the rest of the 70 but I was satisfied with the taste of the 2 ordered. For the prices charged, they could perhaps increase the portion of the meals. A and I are not big eaters to begin with, but Pasta de Gohan’s portion were small even by our standards. They offer 50% off certain dishes before end of June. I guess we will be back again...... sometime before end of June.

By the way, Pasta de Gohan was touted on the menu as healthy pasta. Err... I'm not sure what part of the meal was healthy, perhaps the green tea? -.~
