After checking out Lim Soup and The Bakery Chef, we popped by Pan Delights Bistro next door to find out what is this place all about. The decor is clean and simple with white walls around. I actually quite like the piece of drawing on one of the wall which is a view of the neighbourhood where the bistro is located.
Pan Delights bistro offers an array of European favourites, bar snacks, coffee and beers. While we were there, the bistro was about to close for their afternoon breaks in another half an hours time. As we did not have much time to eat, we just order drinks and a pasta dish to try.
Tangy Passion 4/5 and Sangria Ice Tea 4/5
For the drinks we had the Tangy Passion ($4.50) and Sangria Ice Tea ($4.50). I like how the drinks are served in a big jar, visually I felt it is already value for money. The Tangy Passion is a concoction of passion fruit, lemon and orange juice. The Sangria Ice Tea is an enjoyable non alcohol interpretation with sangria essence infused into tea and finished with a splash of orange juice. Both drinks are refreshing and perfect for the humid Singapore weather.
Scallop & Prawns Aglio Olio 3/5
For mains we tried the Scallp & Prawns Aglio Olio ($14.90), spaghetti with scallop and prawns tossed with garlic, herbs, chilli and olive oil. The pasta was cooked to a nice al dente texture. However the other components have rooms for improvement such as the scallops could be more seared. The flavours were also quite flat, more should be done to bring out the flavours.
While I did not really have a very memorable dining experience at Pan Delight Bistro, I did notice from their facebook page that they have introduced some new items on the menu and they look really good. I can see that they have seriously put in some effort in improving their dishes and look forward to pay them another visit.
