Purple Pasta, Oasis Ara Damansara (Formerly known as Epiphany Coffee & Tobacco)

Update: New Lunch & Dinner Menu @ Purple Pasta

Selamat Hari Merdeka & Happy birthday Malaysia! Cheers to a long weekend! :P

Here's a place to visit that one can visit at Oasis Ara Damansara, especially if you're on a tight budget ;)

I have been following Epiphany Coffee & Tobacco FB page ever since my first visit and about two weeks ago, I stumbled upon their latest status update stating that they have just underwent a major facelift. So Guan Ren & I decided to drop by last Saturday to check it out.
Back with a new brand name, Purple Pasta Cafe resides at the same shop lot as where Epiphany was (same row as Tappers Cafe), with a striking purple sign board.
Joy & happiness swept through our faces (& wallets) as we browse through the discount signs that were plastered all over the glass walls of Purple Pasta. RM5 for a plate of pasta?!! Sounds unbelievable isn't it? The RM5 Pasta isn't on the menu so you'll have to ask the waiter about it while ordering.
The homey interior of Purple Pasta. We instantly felt at home as we step into Purple Pasta. The warm hospitality of the staffs at Purple Pasta made us feel at ease. Purple Pasta emits a warm & cosy vibe- a perfect place to hang out with friends & family.

The menu of Purple Pasta was a rather creative one- the matte laminated paper are tied to a thin piece of wooden block which has a wooden spatula attached to it.
Sure enough, we ordered everything that was on promotion. Purple Pasta's promotions changes from time to time I think so do keep an eye of the promotions on their Facebook page
Piccolo Latte RM10 (Buy 1 Free 1)
Foam lacked smoothness & creaminess, but do give them some time as they are still new :)
Gravy Pasta RM5
Spaghetti cooked with brown gravy & beef
Not your usual pasta sauce, but it was a fresh change & twist from the typical pasta sauce. Savoury & thick, & packed with minced beef. If you're a big fan of brown sauce I'd  recommend you to give this pasta a try.
Aglio Olio RM5
Spaghetti tossed with Olive Oil, Chilli Flakes & Minced Chicken
The Aglio Olio was a little bit too dry for my liking & I thought that the chilli flakes was overpowering the pasta.
Complementary Dessert
Ice-Cream with a twist. The creamy ice-cream had an aromatic espresso after-taste. A fine balance of sweet & bitter.
We got this dessert for free after filling up their feedback form.:)
Complementary Dessert Plate (2)
Chocolate Chip Marshmallow, Tangerine Marshmallow & Seaweed popcorns
Two complementary desserts for us? A sweet ending to our wonderful (& budget!) savoury meal. I loved the chocolate chip marshmallow! So fluffy & chewy, and rich in chocolate taste! The Seaweed popcorn tasted like one of those expensive gourmet popcorn & was highly addictive

I loved the Chocolate Chip Marshmallow so much I even dapau-ed home some (RM2 for 2 pieces). They were kind enough to throw in another complementary marshmallow in my doggy-bag! :)

There were some hits & misses, but with their friendly staffs that constantly strives to improve & appreciates feedbacks from customers, I'm pretty sure that Purple Pasta will emerge as the locals favourite one day :)
