There was a time when I didn’t enjoy eating pasta. I used to think pasta was flat out boring. And my main problem with it was, it didn’t seem to satiate my enormous appetite. I felt that I could never feel full unless I eat at least 2 platefuls of pasta. All that is now a thing of the past. With all the amazing pasta varieties and sauce possibilities, I’m well on my way to becoming a huge pasta lover. I’ve recently discovered Goodles at the University Mall (Taft Avenue) and after 2 visits, I can already say I love the place!

Goodles was set up in Robinsons Galleria in 2009 as the brainchild of a talented and creative magazine editor and young entrepreneur, Sharlene Tan. She also owns Qitchen, a home-based catering business and cake shop. I was kind of skeptical about her concept of pasta-on-the-go until I finally tried it. I first sampled the Smoked Mussels and Anchovies [al dente spaghetti tossed with smoked mussels, anchovies and fresh parsley], which bursts with an unmistakeable seafood flavor and a very appetizing spicy kick. On my second visit, I ordered the Garlic Shrimp and Chorizo [linguine in a light tomato sauce with the right amount of shrimp and sausage bits]. The blend of flavors is just perfect! Each pasta-in-a-tub is served hot and with a piece of garlic bread. For dessert, I’ve had the Carrot Cake (deliciously moist; a Qitchen bestseller) and the Banana Cream Pie (fresh bananas, custard, cream and a graham crust).  So yummy!!! Goodles‘ mission is to change the way people eat pasta one bowl at a time. Well, it just did exactly that for me. I’m now more adventurous when it comes to eating pasta, and I’m always excited to try new pasta dishes every week. Goodles definitely puts the good in noodles!

    Would love to try this but Taft is so far… Do they have a branch somewhere near QC, Pasig, Greenhills, Ortigas or even in Makati?
