Aglio Olio Bistro @ AXA Tower, Singapore

Coming here was by random.  We were just walking along Shenton Way from our hotel, looking for somewhere decent for dinner.  Right when we almost decided to give up and head straight to Chinatown instead, I noticed there were some restaurants inside AXA Tower.  In fact, there were quite a lot of choices inside the building, but we decided to opt for western food at Aglio Olio Bistro.

My colleague and I went for the Dinner Special for 2 (SGD 34) – I guess he must be very hungry since he was the one who recommend to go for the set.  Anyway, I find this set really quite a deal as there were quite a lot being offered – 2 pasta, a basket of chicken wings, garlic bread, soup of the day and lemonade.

The soup of the day was Mushroom Soup – normal off-the-shelf cream of mushroom soup but with lots of chopped vegetables (which I suspect is onion and celery).  Pretty disappointed with the soup as it was hot enough and too starchy.  But it went well with the toasted garlic bread, which I enjoyed very much.

The fried chicken wings were pretty good – well seasoned with herbs and succulent.  It tasted good enough without the chilli sauce.

The main dish which I ordered is the Bacon Cream pasta, which is really delicious.  The cream sauce was so flavourful with the pork bacon shreds and with some chopped cili padi, the hotness made it super appetizing.  The thickness of the sauce is just right and not too overpowering.  Plus, the portion is reasonably big.  Totally enjoyed it.

Ambiance-wise, it is very cozy and perfect for a small get-together with friends for a chat or two.  Definitely will be back here again, especially since they just gave a SGD10 voucher for the next visit.
