Food Review: Arbite at Serangoon Gardens for Pasta Dinner

June 17, 2012

I first discovered and blogged about Arbite's brunch offerings a while back but I've since gotten the opportunity to revisit it to try their pasta! It was a mental note I made to myself when during brunch, one of my companion's tomato pasta tasted so good it seems like a must-visit after.

So I did! I ordered the dish I was most curious about on the menu - Green Tea Fettucini with Smoked Duck ($24.90). It was made with smoked duck breast, semi sundried tomatoes (LOVE!), button mushrooms and garlic malto (what is garlic malto?!). Also a sprinkling of feta cheese on top (if that is not garlic malto, I can't tell, really).

Look. at. that.


It was fantabulously delicious. It deserves a made-up adjective because c'mon, it is made with green tea. And tastes so heavenly... Wow I am really hungry right now. This dish is really super awesome. Al dente pasta - not salty with salt at all, but bursting with layers of flavors from the smoked duck breast meat, and tomatoes. The portobello shrooms gives it the juice, and the white stuff (cheese or garlic malto) adds the tang!

This is what I would call.. art. That I can bite into. ART-BITE!

I also found out to my delight that they serve my favorite cider in the entire world (ok, I've not tasted that many to judge) - the Kopparberg Elderflower & Lime cider ($11)! It is really light and refreshing, almost like a soda but with a bit of a sweet kick. Goes really well with the pasta.


My old friends ordered other food - which are delicious as well, looking at how they dug in! Now, another piece of art this time with a parma ham ROSE. Someone needs to make a bouquet of that now.

The Pappardelle with Mushrooms and Parma Ham ($19.90) had button mushrooms, spinach, parma ham and cream sauce drizzled with truffle oil. I had a taste - it wasn't too creamy at all, done just right. Plus I have a feeling I will enjoy unrolling the parma ham if I did order this dish.

Another friend had the Tagliatelle with Prawn Aglio Olio ($18.90) with prawns, chilli, garlic and spring onion with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Looks good! Also, bearing an uncanny resemblance to 1 of our local dish. I'm sure you know which.


Here's Kesler, our friend's adorable son who joined us for the meal! They have kids chairs and plastic utensils for children there, which is very good for families. 

Also - those cheeks! Adorbs.

The parents ordered a fish and chips for Kesler. Which is the perfect kid food. Cos I know I would love it if I had no teeth and wanted something exciting to nom on.


Overall, Arbite is a all-rounded great restaurant that holds up day and night very well. They also have 1-for-1 for UOB and weekday lunch specials. Go check out their menu to find out more!
