This signature Squid Ink Tagliatelle is not your ordinary pasta. The pasta is made in-house from scratch with a decent amount of squid ink added to impart a rich and briny flavour into the pasta. The sumptuous pasta is cooked until it is al dante and then embellished with fresh scallops, broccoli, olive oil, garlic and chilli. Pan-seared until perfection, the meaty scallops still maintain their juiciness which is absolutely delightful! The pasta mingles perfectly with the delicately sweet and buttery scallops, making it a hard-to-resist combination!
