Can you tell I did nothing over the weekend but eat? I hope I’m not making you too hungry but I have to tell you about this awesome place, The Old Spaghetti House. Let’s just say it made my spaghetti and meatballs dreams come true. 😀
The Look: You know that place where you would want to meet a long lost friend or maybe your best friend coming home from a stint abroad? That is the kind of warm comfort and nostalgia that the wooden and vintage interior of The Old Spaghetti House evokes. Even with the clutter of forks and spoons and the occasional laughter from the next table, you will feel right at home.
The Food: On the road to Marquee Mall, My Man and Chicken Pi were discussing what was the ‘old’ in The Old Spaghetti House. It was our first time to eat there and we really did not know what to expect. My Man said the spaghetti might be old and we better brace ourselves.
Fortunately, the ‘old’ in The Old Spaghetti House delivers as they served me the perfect plate of spaghetti, the noodles wearing the fresh, earthy, and warm sauce like a coat. The meatballs were moist, flavorful, and very tasty. My only complain was that I wished it had more cheese.
Chicken Pi has lasagna and I stole a forkful and found it was too rich and creamy. But it wasn’t salty. I don’t think a single person can eat that lasagna serving or it was too decadent. If you love lasagna and you want to try it, maybe you can split it with another to avoid the over the top sensation.
Usually, My Man and I get different plates but this time, he opted to have what I was having for he was too dehydrated to think and he was not happy with his spaghetti like me. Turns out, the boyfriend wanted his spaghetti sweet and spicy the way Filipinos cook it. I won’t argue with him but my plate still made me very happy. I’m coming back!
Chicken Pi also wanted to eat dessert, but I learned that in restaurants where desserts are not part of the specialty, it is best to just make a pass. But she wanted to try the chocolate truffle cheesecake I think and it was this slice of cake with a very dense and fudgy filling. I cannot say I loved it because it was almost overkill too. I’d rather eat the vanilla ice cream on top.
The Edge: If you want to eat good Italian style spaghetti and meatballs, go to the Old Spaghetti House and have a bite for me too!
