Cut to the Cheese


Whenever I’m near Lygon and I have absolutely no idea where to go, Universal is where I tend to place myself for a satisfactory meal. The servings are plentiful and the flavours wholesome.

We happen to be there during lunch time and decided to go for one of their lunch specials ($12.90 for an entree pasta & drink). To feed my saucy tomato pasta cravings, I ordered the Paul special with a cappuccino. My friend Court had the chicken and avocado with a lemon squash. Our drinks arrived promptly and the coffee definitely did not disappoint.

Paul special

My dish came out shortly after. It has been a while since I had a good saucy pasta dish. This was so fresh and the more I ate the better it became. It definitely had the bacon hit to it and the hint of chilli was delicious. I ended adding more to it because I really like things hot. The rose sauce was a nice change to the usual red pasta sauces that I have.

Court was getting pretty hungry by this point and it was not till 30 minutes later when I asked, that we were told that they had actually forgotten about her dish because there was a mix up in the kitchen. It did come out relatively quickly after that.

Chicken and avacado

Her dish had a creamy sauce which was not that spectacular, bland in fact. Apparently her chicken was surprisingly salty. She was not having a good food day.

I find that it’s almost always busy in here, whether it be for lunch or dinner. A minor issue that I have with eating here during the day is that it can be a little dark inside despite it being really sunny outside. But honestly that won’t stop me coming back for reasonably priced delicious pasta.
