As loyalists of Food for Thought and Kopitiam at Bras Basah, we never thought of dropping by at Dome Cafe at the Singapore Arts Museum. Until, we got a 1-for-1 pizza/pasta coupon from a credit card company, Hubby and I decided to stop by. (we're always on-the-go for any promotions :D)
It was a hot sunny Sunday after church so this was the best time to experience Dome (just 50 steps away). It was surprising how busy it was. There were a lot of Ang moh families having their brunch. So we were lucky to secure a two-seater table.
I based my order with the pictures in the menu as first timer. (plus, the pasta picture looked very enticing).
Seafood Tomato (3.75/5) - in the menu, they gave 3 kinds of pasta for you to choose from. I was so excited to get the squid ink linguine, unfortunately, i was only given by the waitress 2 options: penne or spaghetti. (maybe because it was a promotion or maybe they run out of it: I didn't really came to know what was the reason, as the waitress was pretty grumpy that time: I guess, too much work on an Sunday morning) And so, I chose penne to go with the seafoods in my plate. The pasta was actually very tasty. There were lots of garlic spread all over that gave the pasta its aroma. The tomato sauce were made from fresh tomatoes, not from cans, that shared its tanginess to the dish. There was a fair share of squid, shrimps and fish slices that made me enjoyed my lunch.
The service was a bit of disappointment as the staff can't keep up with the numerous customers. Overall, it was ok.
