It’s my first time dining here at Lenas and all I could say is that the food prepared here is quite standard for a franchise restaurant located in a heartland shopping mall. Like what my friend described, the pasta was cooked to al-dente and the cabonara cream sauce is well-balance; not overly creamy and not overly diluted with milk.
I ordered breaded fish with pasta because I always felt that pasta with cream sauce is somewhat rather “moist and wet” and therefore should pair up with something that has a drier or crunchy texture. The bread crumbs-coated pacific dory fish in my plate tasted quite fresh with meat that looked white, delicate and has a slight seafood sweetness in it.
|A drink and a pasta comes up to about $24. That’s one-fifth of a $100 bill. Maybe a little straining on the wallet especially when you realise you could head for better pastas else where for a fraction less than this. It must be the government tax!|
After slurping our latte and matcha, we sat down to watch the world go by with our freshly-blended apple juice and durian cakes at Durian Mpire. After the fruity affair, all I wanted to do was to head back home and continue reading “Eat,Pray,Love” before I start with the autobiography book on Steve Jobs.
