Mamma mia! There’s nothing quite like a plate of delicious, comforting pasta! We already can’t get enough of Sheung Wan’s favourite boutique restaurant, The Pasta Place, which certainly lives up to its name. With pasta, gnocchi, salads and delicious homemade desserts on offer, this cute little resto is the perfect place for a casual meal with close friends. We already love the reasonable prices here, but now they’ve introduced ‘Discount Tuesday’ dinners, there really is no excuse not to come. All you have to do is spend $150 or more on food per party (easy!), and you get a plate of pasta for free… yum! Bring on the spag bol, mac n’ cheese and pesto Genovese, all washed down with an American craft beer or a glass of special homemade lemonade spiked with coconut rum. Sounds like the ideal evening to us!
