Sometimes you just don’t have time to sit down for a slow serenade with your pasta. But that doesn’t mean you should totally neglect it. That’s where The Pasta Bakery in Merghani comes in. Serving up fresh-made pasta to go (usually rolled right in front of you back when going to restaurants was a thing). Choose between spaghetti, fettucine, ravioli, or lasagna paired with your favourite sauce. Get a lil’ frisky and go for the Wheel Deal. You won’t regret that extra cheese pull.

We know, we know. People order from here for the Insta-famous flank steak and overlook anything else on the menu. But if you’ve had Mo’s pasta before, then you know why it’s on the list. If you haven’t, then this is what your next order should look like: Beef Saffron Fettucine. Like, pronto. Al-dente cooked pasta tossed in silky saffron sauce with smoky flavor notes of beef and mushroom. Ask for some sun-dried tomatoes on top and you’re officially winning at life.
