Bentendo Pasta & Cafe, Singapore
This Japanese pasta thing seems to be a growing trend in Singapore. This place (Great World City #03-32, 6235-5606) is run by the Bishamon guys downstairs on the former grounds of the Archangel sandwich shop, all the while preserving its clear glass "fishbowl" of a kitchen.
While they didn't offer that quintessential of Japanese pastas, supagetti mentaiko, they did offer its close (non-spicy) cousin in the form of tarako instead. It was fine, as they kept the noodles pleasantly firm. Nitpicking on a few small things like how salty it was, how small the portions were, or how mass-produced the salad dressing on the parma ham salad tasted would keep me from making any extra effort to come here, but it was just passable enough for me to not resist coming here if it were just out of convenience.
