This used to my favourite restaurant to go to. Discovered the pesto sauce from John on one of the farmers market on Loewen Road where he first started on. And then I was berated by the wife for cancelling and remaking my reservation. Not that...More

Rich flavours and amazing texture are tops here. We had the striploin and pork chops and we're blown away. Freshly ground pepper at your table, slow-cooked shitake mushrooms with sea salt and chilli peppers flakes made the experience a wow!

We arrived at Pasta J after walking at MacRitchie Reservoir Park. The Caramel Carnivore Pasta has a very unique home-made taste mixed with salty and sweet flavor. The Terribly Troublesome Pork Chop is tender and juicy and the butter sauce is creamy and goes well...More

Came by the cafe with my dog and sisters and everyone of us loved it. Food was slightly on the salty side, but we loved it so much. Owner was friendly and so helpful with recommendations. Coffee was so good.

Hi Samantha, thanks much . About the saltiness, pls feel free to ask for it to be less salty and we'll do it. Thanks again. John

I really liked Pasta J. Honest food with that "home-cooked" feel, none of that prettified tarted up concoctions you might get in CBD. Set in a row of old-school shophouses, just off the construction site they currently call Upper Thomson Road, the ambience is clean...More

Hi there, so nice of you to write this review. Thank you also for taking the trouble to be comprehensive. We have many other great dishes and we hope you'll try them soon. Thanks again. John

Reviewed 8 January 2018

John wasn't there when we went, but the food was still rich and flavourful. My only grouse was that the mushroom soup was not heated evenly through, which signalled to me that it had probably been reheated via the microwave.

Description
Super flavourful prepared with unmatched level of effort ie the old fashioned, better way. We cross culinary boundaries and are unburdened by tradition. We do what works and is delicious even if it means crazy effort or unusual food combinations (Salted Fish w Burrata and Osso Buco with Green Curry anyone?). Far from being creative just for it's own sake, I set out to create tasty dishes based on personal experiences with various cuisines. Being untrained and never having worked in the commercial kitchen prior to entering the industry, I was not indoctrinated and follow no dogma. Basically, if it's tasty and not easy to prepare, I am likely to do it.
