Casual Italian restaurant Pasta J is one of our favourite hangout spots along Upper Thomson Road. The restaurant has been gaining a reputation for itself among the public for serving a toothsome array of homemade pasta and steaks. As Pasta J is also a pet-friendly dining place, you will find pet owners who are residing in the area dropping by on a frequent basis with their fur babies.
Pasta J’s humble beginnings started when owner John Chan was selling his own pesto sauce creation at events. Upon receiving many positive feedbacks, he decided to open his own stall at a hawker centre and eventually become so successful that he could open his own restaurant. Till today, diners are treated to a curated menu featuring John’s personal recipes.
Signature items on their menu include Pesto Pasta, The Break-Up Steak and Caramel Carnivore. Guests who are interested in their special sauces are able to buy them off the shelves too. READ ON

Singapore’s cafe scene is booming, to say the least, and it is only growing more rampant with new cafes sprouting out everywhere. Yet, satisfying as artisanal coffee may be, a simple cuppa from a cafe often comes with a hefty price attached to it. It is during times like these that we are immensely thankful for establishments like Hangar Coffee Express.
Tucked away in Maxwell food centre, this new coffee shop is bent on serving up quality brews at slightly more affordable prices. Have you ever had a brewed flat white, let alone a macchiato or even a mocha at a hawker centre? Probably not, but now you can. Priding themselves with being the only hawker drink stall to have a LaMarzocco espresso machine, what you can expect—whether you’re a coffee aficionado or not—is a perfect shot of espresso every time.
The Hangar Coffee Express aims to bring the Melbourne-style café experience to office executives and tourists alike. They officially open for business today so if you happen to be around the area, you know where to get your caffeine fix!
