Birthday Treat to Pal

The newly opened JEM shopping mall is a food heaven and since my friend's birthday is around the corner, I had decided to give her a treat.

Don't get deceived by the empty queue outside the restaurant. Although I'm second on the queue, the waiting time was rather long as they were full house. When we were first in the queue, we were given a menu each and invited into the restaurant's waiting area.

Menu - Spageddies in Jurong East Singapore
Menu
3 different kinds of treats on a platter consisting, calamari, soft shell crab and mozzarella cheese stick served with its homemade tartar and Neapolitan sauce for dipping. I was rather surprised to see such small serving. Overall, I will only give 6/10 marks as I find their batter are not well coated hence, it drops off easily and makes it difficult to handle while dipping them in the sauce.

Out of these three pasta dishes, I will give my vote to this! Lemon butter sauce with bacon, tomatoes and mushrooms paired together with a bed of creamy spaghetti and chicken meat.

One of the best sellers in its Spaghetti section, this dish is filled with little neck clams with hints of garlic, red cut chilli, parsley and white wine. Though taste and presentation is vastly different from the previous pasta, it showcases one of the many ways spaghetti can be served.

Voted as the best seller under its Mama's Specialties' section, the oven baked lobster and crispy fried chicken is served with cream sauce and spaghetti.

The only dish that we order that doesn't comes with pasta. Listed under its Papa's Specialties' section, these grilled thin pork chops are served with little roasted pipping hot skin potatoes and Italian vegetables. The pasta sauce that comes with it are overpowering and if having pork chops alone, it tastes bland. More room for improvement!

The combination blends of basil, mint leaves and mango juice forms the puree. Comes in a small cup, it doesn't taste good as expected. Some say it tastes like toothpaste though and I find that mango taste is minimal.

Missing the tiramisu we had in Italy earlier this year, we got ourselves desserts. The spongy cake with mascarpone and zabaglione cheese sprinkled with flavours of espresso and coco powder. The picture of the cake in the menu is different from the real thing.

Served with vanilla ice cream on the top and hot fudge. The brownie with nuts are perfect for serving. Just be careful that the plate is hot.
