PasarBella (Suntec City): Porsena Deli

PasarBella is derived from the Malay word "pasar" which means "marketplace" and "bella" which means "beautiful" in Italian. Inspired by the quirky and rustic interior of Covent Garden in London and the rich aromatic scents of fresh organic produce in Melbourne's Queen Victoria Market, PasarBella is a marketplace where traders of all kinds congregate to offer a marketplace experience like no other.

I have been wanting to check out this delightful place ever since I have learned of its existence a few years ago, but The Grandstand at Turf City is really out of the way for folks like me who do not drive, so I have been putting it off.

PasarBella has just opened a new outlet at the newly-renovated Suntec City and I am really excited to check out all the awesome foods. In fact, I am so in love with the idea that I am dedicating 2 month worth of post to PasarBella.

I am going to head over to Porsena Deli for some pasta and sandwiches. 

Pasta set comes with soup of the day and a piece of garlic bread. The garlic bread is one of the best I have ever eaten with a glorious buttery taste and soap of the day happened to be tomato soup, which is creamy with the right amount of tangy tomato. I was recommended their signature pasta dish, Konbu Prawn Linguine (I am sure if it was just a coincidence or it was deliberately named this way, but konbu means 'scary' in Chinese which makes this dish Scary Prawn Linguine ... ). Names aside, the linguine is al dente, but the sauce that is made with konbu (Japanese seaweed kelp) and butter is a little too salty for me. 

Sandwich set comes with a bowl of chips (I am pretty sure it is Lays) and one of the sides and I chose   Green Salad. I am guessing the salad dressing is kombu (Japanese seaweed kelp) and it is really salty. I was recommended their signature sandwich Smoked Beef (Pastrami) which is a combination of house-smoked pastrami, dijon mustard, sauerkraut, dill pickles and sharp cheddar and mozzarella cheese sauce sandwiched between a semi brioche roll. This is my first taste of pastrami, so I can't really comment on the quality, but the sting of the mustard of really strong.
