The carb loading continues at Bada Bing Cafe in Woodlands 🍝 This modest looking suburban gem, tucked away in a little strip of shops, surprised us today by dishing out fine dining quality pasta 😋 the Fettuccine Judano at first sounded unusual, but the combination of pan fried duck and pistachio crusted scallops (both perfectly cooked by the way) somehow worked and was delicious. The gnocchi with meat ragu, boasting itself as “Nathan’s Best of the Best Pasta winning recipe”, did not disappoint with its pillowy soft texture that melted in the mouth. I would have liked a little more seasoning and meaty umami flavor but that would be nit picking.
For those who don’t mind a cocktail at lunch, be warned that the Mocha Martini comes as pictured, with a little jug containing “the rest of the cocktail”. So you basically get 2 cocktails for $14! Best value in Perth! Although it was delicious, it was also decently strong so this was responsibly shared between 2 to avoid any staggering around at 1pm on a Wednesday.
Great little family friendly cafe with views of Woodlands Lake across the road. Recommended! 8.5/10
