Thanks to Jackson from Foodirector, I had the opportunity to sample beautifully created dishes from
Purple Pasta Cafe, Oasis Ara Damansara which is a fairly new area around Citta Mall.
Simple interior but my only complaint is the air cond was rather warm and lack of numerous dining tables
due to smaller cafe area.
Prawn CevicheSemi raw prawns with purple cabbage and onions The fresh prawns although is acquired taste for some diners, it has bouncy and succulent texture whichcomplements well with the sourish and crunchy vege goodness. When served rather chilled, this is a goodappetizer to start with.Garden Salad- RM8Fresh crisp green leaves with Balsamic & Ceasar dressing. I've never thought these two kinds ofdressing can work so well together.Prawn ThermidorThe extremely sweet and succulent prawn is further enhanced by the torched cream cheese on top, veryaddictive and nicely executed. Hidden beneath is some stir fried halved brussel sprouts, with a little softertexture than expected. Indeed a luxurious and beautifully presented dish at a affordable price, which isPurple Pasta's concept.
Lamb Marinara- RM5
They say simplest thing is the hardest to make. For example, this tomato based sauce can be either too
sour or watery. This version here satisfied my appetite of craving for Marinara as it was just sour enough.
Simple and satisfying. The meatball was excellent in my books as the toothsome texture which did not
dissapoint. It was adequately mixed with spices too, one is just not enough.
Authentic Carbonara- RM5
By mixing al dente pasta, garlic and poached egg, you get to enjoy Carbonara in the most original and
authentic way. Anyhow, I still prefer creamy based Carbonara as this was a little too bland for me.
Fra Diavolo MuttonOne word. Superb. This plate of heaven has a secret ingredient inside when making the mutton chunks- dark
chocolate. The creamy yet little spicy sauce was very wicked and addictive. The mutton chunks were
cooked till very tender soft, very nice to go with well boiled pasta. This plate of goodness is being licked
clean in no time. Must try!
Salmon TartareCubed fresh salmon and finely diced pears mixed with ebikko mayo, topped with torched cream cheese.
A great combination of flavours and textures as the sweet salmon complemented the crunchy pears very
well, even better with the creamy yet not too overpowering ebikko mayo. The cream cheese just makes
everything taste so good. It would be even better if this dish is served cold.
Poached Chicken & Smoked Duck
Simple and healthy dish that I don't mind having everyday! The creamy and nicely seasoned mashed
potato still has tiny potato bits that provided extra texture, not to mention going with the perfectly
cooked brown sauce makes this dish being simplicity at its best. The sliced chicken breast was not too try,
smoked duck breast was commendable too.
Thrice Sugar Latte
The star here is the unique shining Violet Sugar named Azuleta, which is made from Lavendar. We managed to try one teaspoon each on its own and it's not too sweet at all, explains that this is a good sugar substitute in your favourite drinks especially coffee.
Pretty good in balanced chocolate flavour and coffee aroma but a little diluted. Purple Pasta Cafe
