a gleaming new display cabinet servery...
and cafe-style wooden chairs with funky artworks adorning the walls...
There are salads and pastas in the bain marie...
and a chicken and spinach pasta number in addition to the ubiquitous lasagna.
Penne with chicken and spinach $7.50, and beef lasagna $8.50
I was here with a group of ravenous Sydney Photobloggers after a morning field trip around the streets of Newtown. The interior was light and airy, a couple of Saturday newspapers lay on tables for customer perusal, and a huge open window allowed us to watch the Newtown crowd pass on by.
Fusilli pesto $5.00
Fusilli arabbiata $5.00
I had the fusilli arabbiata with a request for extra chilli. And although there was definitely heat, I was a little disappointed in the lack of flavour. There was plenty of tinned tomato, but it was a little too astringent for my liking, and lacking in depth. I noticed that many of us were reaching for the salt and pepper shakers with increasing regularity between mouthfuls.
The pasta though, was perfectly cooked. Nicely al dente with a definite firmness to the tooth. Disappointingly our pasta didn't arrive in "cones" but maybe that's for takeaway?
Cheap pasta in modern chirpy surrounds in the heart of Newtown.
Fast fuel for a photography pit-stop.
