Rebel Pasta, Damansara Uptown
November 25, 2019
PJ's new pasta paradise seeks to stir a ravioli revolution in Damansara Uptown, crafting hand-rolled classic varieties served in modern, witty fashion.
Popeye's Mistress is a masterful medley of toothsome taglierini - beautifully firm to the bite, buoyantly flavoursome - with baby spinach, garlic, shimeji mushrooms, zucchini and creamy-yolked egg for pasta that tastes true to the essence of Italian traditions - not a bad bargain at all for RM15.90.
The Fish On The Rocket (RM21.90) had the potential to be punishingly cloying, with fettuccine soaked in tomato cream sauce, but the fresh pasta does textural justice to Rome's culinary legacy, while the sauce is lively, bolstered by thick, tender slices of house-smoked salmon and just enough joy-sparking tobiko to justify a Tokyo rebel yell.
Unfortunately, the downside of freshly made pasta is that not everything on the menu is always available; the two pastas we initially tried to order - matcha fettuccine in pesto sauce and ravioli with house-strained ricotta - were out of stock when we visited, but hopefully, Rebel Pasta will ensure a consistent supply soon.
