At Kamakura Pasta, they throw everything but the kitchen sink as they serve you layers upon layers of fork twisting delicious carbohydrates. Not only do they offer spectacular Italian-Asian concept fused pasta dishes but also fearlessly dare to pair it with an all-you-can-eat bread selection. See more what I mean below.
As if staying away from basic Bolognese spaghetti wasn’t hard enough, here comes the likes of Tarako (Pollock roe) pepperoncini, creamy lobster sauce shrimp pasta, and sea urchin sauce with salmon roe fettuccini (wipe your mouth, you’re dripping!). Kamakura Pasta manages to come up with the absolute oddest flavor combination that you wouldn't think would work and yet, somehow, it does. Being the coward that I am, I stuck to ordering the undaring and familiar carbonara, but even that came with a raw yolk which caught me a bit by surprise. I know there is raw egg in carbonara but I think I'm used to it being ‘premixed’.
Next to it comes the inevitable focaccias. The oh-so-delicious and all-you-can-eat focaccias were just like little hand size sauceless pizza squares. The focaccias came in a variety of toppings such as garlic butter, pesto, and corn. Using the focaccia to dip and break the raw yolk is reason enough to try this place out. It’s absolutely eggcellent! For the diet desperate, not to worry as they also have some salads and antipasto such as mozzarella caprese and salmon carpaccio which are seemingly boring but will get the job done just the same. Cost-wise, I think there is carbs in that too as it's a bit heavier than what I am used to starting at around 1500-ish yen per dish. The benefit however is that one dish will probably get you through the rest of the day.
I personally think Kamakura Pasta is meant for families especially for that Sunday lunch. It probably works as a date spot too as it has a nice full length window overlooking the exterior. To get there, head over to the 4th floor of the AEON Rycom mall. You can find it at the side where there are the Cinemas.
