About Ah Bong’s Italian
Situated opposite Bugis Junction, Ah Bong’s Italian is an authentic Italian cafe where you can get to enjoy quality home-made comfort food freshly made daily. They specialise in fusion dishes while still maintaining a strong Italian influence, and you can taste the passion of Chef Chris in the food that he serves.
To start off our meal, we tried their Homemade Crab Cake ($8), which was hand prepared from scratch. You can taste the distinct chunks of crabmeat inside the crab patty and it was crispy and superbly appetising.
The next appetiser we tried was their Slow Roasted Durac Pork Belly ($12), and undoubtedly one of our guilty pleasure! The fresh and juicy pork belly melts in your mouth while the crispy skin added a fragrance and texture to each mouthful.
Lastly, we had their Burrata + Homemade bread ($14). Plated with sautéed tomatoes, freshly toasted bread and the star of the dish – Burrata, this dish is definitely a must-try when you visit! You can enjoy this dish by dipping the toast into the smooth and creamy burrata or simply enjoy it on its own!
The first main we had was one of their signature pastas, the Crabby Aglio Oglio ($16). The aglio oglio is drenched in rich crabmeat chunks, zucchini, roasted tomatoes and chilli flakes for a finishing touch. The pasta was al dente, which catered perfectly to our palate and is definitely unlike your usual aglio oglio.
Another popular pasta here will be their Angus Meat Ragu ($16). Slathered in their homemade sauce along with angus beef cheek and durac pork, the roasted tomatoes added an acidity to balance out the richness of the pasta. You can also upgrade your pasta to fresh pasta for just an additional $5!
To conclude the meal at Ah Bong’s Italian, we indulged in their home-made Tiramisu ($6). The strong distinct taste of rum stood out in this and the mildly sweetened mascarpone custard balances well with the coffee soaked ladyfingers underneath.
If you’re down for some hearty Italian food, do visit this hidden gem along Tan Quee Lan street! They offer lunch sets which includes a selected main, drink and a dessert starting at only $12!
