A forum friend, Isan, has this to say about the restaurant after looking at the set of photos, "Looks like dine-in at Harajuku JUST reminding me few years ago. Nice atmosphere with tastily."

I do agree that the place looks über chic and with a hint of zen inspirations. But we had a mixed feelings for their foods. The rocket salad and my partner's squid ink pasta with salmon were above average. Despite of the uninviting color, the squid ink pasta was eye-pleasingly neat and glistering! (I've seen the same dish that's dull and dirty-looking elsewhere) I couldn't say the same for the ham pasta that I had. The ham was terribly done, so much so that it looked and tasted raw. The pungent smell from the raw meat totally put me off.

Table for two: No details.

Recommended dishes: Rocket salad and squid ink spaghetti with salmon.

In a nutshell

PS: Incidentally, there is a column, 'Cheap & Good', in today's (23/11/08) The Strait's Times features a Pizza Bar along Singapore's Ghim Moh Road. The writer picked a SGD17 (about THB390) squid ink spaghetti. Yes, for that cheap price in Singapore, you get the pasta with nothing else.

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.
