Around De World @ Liang Seah Street

I knew about this place from fellow food blogger Calvintimo who has been visiting the place almost every week. I am getting suspicious whether he is there for the food or to see the bubbly waitress (joking). He also organized a food blogger outing at Around De World which I have to miss as I was away in Melbourne for work.

Since I was going to Drama Centre Theatre at National Library to watch Crazy Christmas 2010, I made a point to check out the place for lunch. It is a small restaurant with about 10 tables.

For drink I had the Lemon Lime Bitters which was very refreshing and cooling for the afternoon heat.

I also ordered the Cheesy Bolognese Fries to share with my partner. Both of us find that the Bolognese was very nice.

For the main, I had Level 2 (spiciness) Chilli O Crab Spaghetti while my partner had the Carbonara Penne. I simply fell in love with the Chilli Crab...oh I meant the pasta. Fresh real crab meat was used and the familiar taste and flavour of the chilli crab made it an excellent and enjoyable fusion dish.

I also tried a bit on the Carbonara Penne. I thought the Carbonara was nicely executed. The sauce was neither too thick or rich, just the right balance to go with the penne.

Lastly is the dessert. The waitress recommended us the Banana Bar so we gave it a try. I found it quite nice as it was not too sweet while my partner thought that it was a bit dry.
