I confess. I’ve always been skeptical when it comes to fusion food, and Japanese pasta is no exception. So when a friend suggested dinner @ Yomenya Goemon, I hesitated a little. But meh… it’s at CityLink Mall, an easily accessible place, and I kinda trust my friend’s taste in food, so I went ahead anyway. Prior to this, the only other place I had Japanese pasta was at Saizeriya (their squid ink pasta is fking fantastic!), so I didn’t know what to expect. As my friend recommended the squid ink pasta even before we were there, I thought that I’ll be having that.
One look at the menu, I stumped. There were sooOOOoo many types of pasta and all of them sounds yummy :O They had a half-half set which is 2 mini versions of a pasta + salad + soup + drink, but I wasn’t allowed to choose my own type of pasta so I gave that up. Eventually after much contemplating, I settled for Lobster Bisque spaghetti while my friend went for Squid Ink spaghetti.
When the mine arrived, it smelled so good that I started mixing the sauce with spaghetti up before I even took a picture. LOL. It tasted as good as it smelled & looked. The lobster bits were tiny, and I’m not a fan of the red peppers in it, but the sauce was omg! And the spaghetti was cooked just right! Not fat & soggy like some other places. Pretty sure I can finish at least 2 servings of this, will be ordering the large set nxt time I visit o(^_^)o
This is my friend’s squid ink pasta. I did try a bite. Lovely! haha yeah ~ the ink will definitely stain the mouth & u’ll end up wiping like crazy… more so cos its drenched with olive oil, but this is definitely a MUST-EAT.
Prices were pretty decent. If I don’t remember wrongly, it was like S$19.00 for a regular set and S$21.50 for a Large one. The half-half was S$21.50 I think. Ala-carte, the spaghetti was about S$15.90? idk. Hopefully there’ll be a groupon deal or something for this in the future. I’ll definitely order 2 plates if I can afford it 🙂
