PASTA by Twinpalms celebrated its opening on April 2, bringing Phuket a fun, fresh way to enjoy the world's most beloved and versatile dish: Italian pasta.
This stylish new pasta bar, set between BAKE and FLAME in Cherngtalay, adds an intimate, interactive dimension to the dining experience. Diners enjoy a close-up view of their selected dishes being prepared at the chef's station on the end of a 16-seat oval bar.
PASTA's modern white marble bar counter and brushed stainless steel decor lends a friendly, lively air to the interior, while beautiful Italian folk songs playing in the background add a dash of Old World charm.
PASTA's menu features more than a dozen noodle varieties from spaghetti to ravioli and nearly 20 sauces. Among the sauces are the rich and classic Carbonara with bacon, eggs, cream and pecorino, a Marinara Bianco with seafood, onion, celery and carrot, and a Primavera with sundried tomato and vegetable. The most discerning (and the pickiest!) diners of all ages are sure to find just the right flavour to suit their current mood and cravings.
While the choices are rich and varied, the pricing is simple: pay one price for a regular dish and another for a large dish.
Although it's only just opened, PASTA has already built up a hungry following with these four dishes among the top picks for guests:
Linguine Marinara Rosso - a savoury, tangy choice with seafood and tomato
Penne Rigate Puttanesca - a touch of salt and spice makes this dish very, very nice with dry chillies, olives, capers, anchovies and tomato
Ravioli with Spinach & Ricotta cheese Alfredo - a divinely smooth indulgence with cream and parmesan
Spaghetti Bolognese - a fresh take on a classic with tomato, meat and red wine
PASTA is just the latest addition to Phuket's emerging culinary scene along the road approaching the beautiful Bangtao Bay. Twinpalms first brought its trend-setting hospitality flair into this dining hotspot area by opening the contemporary bakery BAKE in March 2010, followed by the launch of FLAME garden rotisserie next door.
Twinpalms, since opening Twinpalms Phuket Resort at Surin Beach in 2004, has been at the forefront of Phuket's transformation into a modern and exciting lifestyle and leisure destination. The Twinpalms signature style and service extends across a range of operations including Catch Beach Club, Andaman Cruises, Palm Spa, Twinpalms Gallery, and in creating fabulous wedding events.
Now with PASTA, Twinpalms is ready to give Phuket food and wine lovers yet another delicious discovery of the good life, or, as they say in Italian, La Dolce Vita.
