Back Alley Pasta, Ampang

July 18, 2021

Ampang's byways and side streets hide a delicious new secret, Back Alley Pasta, a kitchen with intriguing Italian influences.

Three pastas currently occupy the menu, each fulfilling a different preference, all freshly handmade here. 

Prefer your pasta pure, simple and clean-tasting? Try the tagliatelle, tossed in butter, black pepper and Parmesan, topped with thick, tenderly pan-seared salmon (RM31).

Want your pasta rich and robust? The spinach tagliatelle is slick and saucy, full-bodied and full-flavoured with pomodoro sauce and house-strained ricotta cheese, complete with chicken and cherry tomatoes, both juicy and punchy (RM25).

Our favourite is the one that straddles the balance, squid ink tagliolini in a carbonara preparation that promises a pleasurable compromise between eggy and creamy, a treat to slurp up with plenty of pork bacon and a boiled egg (RM28).
