Continuation from our previous entry from Bishan Canopy, here is another dish that we tried, their truffle pasta. We apologize in advance to diners who disagree with us, but its our most legitimate feeling towards it. ^^
On a weekday lunch timing, it took about 30mins to arrive. But with the huge lunch crowd and social distancing between diners, we understood and waited, hoping it better be well worth the wait. And for comparison, the grilled breakfast took 10mins.
Finally, it was served, and on a gigantic plate, with the pasta cupped in the middle. Whao, “fine dining” style. Nice!
Alas, not only was the quantity pitiful, its quality was appalling. Pasta was somewhat on the tough side, could do better with little more cooking.
We were fortunate enough to taste real truffle, canned truffle in the past, and this, was definitely nothing compared to truffle, not even close. Let’s not even describe it as deep musky aroma, it was at most olive oil and mushroom taste, with herbs scattered around to elevate its flavour. Salt was desperately absent and we could almost hear the heap of pasta begging for some seasoning.
On the menu, it states “Spaghetti, Mixed mushrooms, garlic & black truffle sauce”. Indeed we got spaghetti, some mixed mushrooms, definitely lots of minced garlic, and probably some black sauce. Truffle presence? Not so much.
For an exorbitant price of $21, we expected to get at LEAST some taste like how french fries are dosed with “truffle oil”, but this truffle pasta was sadly a over dressed black pasta with some mushrooms.
