Andrew Moo (Taste Collective), Dan Li (formerly Bird) and Mike Liu (Lucky Mart) are the masterminds behind this experimental pasta bar that’s popped up behind the window in the corridor of X Bar. It’s a late-night thing (open 8pm until it’s sold out, Wednesday-Saturday), ideal in a setting where fuel for the dancefloor or preparatory carbs for the next morning are needed. The pop-up’s purpose is to test and play with what works in preparation for the team’s permanent space (slated to open later in the year), so the pastas change weekly with everything from scallion oil malfaldine to lamb ragu tagliatelle adorned with Sichuan peppercorns.
