Fart Tartz Cafe

Visited Fart Tartz cafe at Chinatown the other day.

I had actually visited their first branch at Expo few years back and was excited to try the food again after these years.

Never knew that they had such an extensive menu of mains and pastas considering the small size of the cafe. But what thrilled me the most was that they had a lot of mentaiko-inspired food in their menu. (psst I love mentaiko!)

Gooey Mentaiko Fish $17.90
Grilled flatbread burger with generous amount of mentaiko.

Red Caviar Mentai S18.90
My favourite pasta of them all, cos mentaiko. hahaha

Aburi Mentaiko Mac & Cheese $17.90
Really generous portion of mentaiko and cheese. This is definitely recommended for sharing due to the rich flavours.

Herby Vongolio $14.90
It can be tricky eating the pastas in jars, so the lady boss mentioned that we could actually pour out the contents onto the plate!

Lemony Garlicky Prawn S14.90

Golden Salted Egg Yolk $15.90

Begedil Sarnie $15.90
Say what? Begedil! Who can resist this potato goodness?

From left to right: 
Green Apple Soda $4.90
Apricot Peach Fruit tea (iced) $5.50
Lychee Lemongrass Freeze $8

Top left and bottom hot drinks:
Rose Hua Cha Black tea (hot) $4.20
Matcha Latte $6.50

Flower-Potted “Mud” Tarts:
Nutella Oreo and Matcha flavours $5.60 each
These are non-bake specialty cheese tarts which are most instagram-worthy. Please do not confuse the 3 ornament plants behind as one of the desserts.

Lava Cake in Jar $13.90
I preferred this to the flower-potted mud tarts. It could be too sweet for some, but for people with a sweet tooth (like me), it's fine!


Although the desserts are really instagram-worthy, I personally prefer the mains more. 
However, I recommend sharing some of the mains, as those pastas with rich sauces, like salted egg and mentaiko ones, can get a bit jelak after a while. (well, it also means they are really generous with the sauces!)

Good news! Their 3rd branch would be opening in Yishun Junction 9 on 26 June 2017!
They must be doing something right in order to have more cafes opening around Singapore right?
