Kabe no Ana in conjunction with the Green Pumpkin Bakery have to be written about. This place has some very scrumptious things on the menu. (Granted though there is an ‘acquired taste’ section of the menu, which I will go into more detail about in a second).

This is an ‘Italian pasta meets Japanese cuisine’ restaurant. I would have to say it is definitely the pastas with ‘spicy crab roe’ in them which are particularly delicious and would highly recommend. Prices for pastas from $13.90 – $16.90 SGD a dish.

We ordered:

  • small seafood pizza
  • scallops and shiitake mushroom in cream sauce with spicy cod roe with tagliatelle
  • bacon and potato spaghetti
  • squid spaghetti with fermented soya bean sauce

It was the fermented soya bean sauce, which thankfully they placed in a separate  bowl, that was the loser of these four dishes. Let’s say it’s probably the same as blue cheese or bitter gourd melon…

My favourite by far was the ‘scallops and shiitake mushroom in cream sauce with spicy cod roe with tagliatelle’ – absolutely moorish and you want to go back for another mouthful. Even though I prefer tomato or tomato/cream based sauces, this definitely won me over.

We then ordered their ‘special rate’ desserts, which are discounted with any main meal purchased… (range from $3.10 – 5.90 SGD). They come from the Green Pumpkin Bakery, next door, which is obviously run/owned by the same group. I have written about these cakes in their own subsequent post…

Lastly, quite cute and comical is the Kabe no Ana’s ‘story of origin’.

Kabe no Ana – definitely worth a visit.
