Cheeky Pasta in Wanchai

Cheeky Pasta is new to Amoy Street.  It is an alternate dining option as the area is full of HK and Japanese style cuisine.  This is their $48 lunch special with $10 soup.

Wanchai’s Cheeky Pasta and their lunch special – Penne in Pesto Cream with Chicken Fillet.

Pasta is decent but on the small side.  The creamy pesto sauce did not cover all the penne.  I had ordered penne in the hopes the sauce would drench the pasta and I would be able to maximize the amount of sauce pick-up with each bite.  I was able to watch the process and notice lack of garlic, shallots and onions to give it real flavour.

The alphabet soup is a nice touch.  I was not thirsty afterwards so the soup was made without a heavy dose of MSG.  I could taste the individual flavours of the vegetables so I suspect it was cooked over a long period.

I will be back to try the other options.  During the noon rush they will only focus on the $48 lunch sets.  The food does a great job of keeping my office breath smelling clean so as to not rip the environment of vampires.

    Alphabet soup? That pesto looked barely there.. Shame, pesto is supposed to be quite flavoursome.. How on earth did that go wrong?
