JoJoCake’s Birthday was here and she wanted suggestions to have a small get together. Fabo always keeps telling me to go to Jimoco Café & Pasta to try their pasta. Since it was close to where JojoCake wanted to eat, we just decided to go there.
There are best known for their pasta and their 2 for 1 deals. When we arrived, there was a huge grand opening sign for 2 for 1 pasta…according to Fabo, they have always had that deal since 1.5 years ago.
Jimoco is quite narrow inside, so there are not that man seats. It is highly recommended to call ahead for reservations.
Here are shots of their menu.
Garlic bread arrives and it was all right. It is lightly buttered on one side and not a lot of taste to it.
A few of us shared the Calamaretti Fritti ($6.50). It is just fried calamari. It tasted average, but the price was decent.
Fabo and KoreanGirl both ordered the Linguine al frutti di mare ($7). It has seafood in tomato, sauce. It is Fabo’s favorite pasta here. It has 2 clams, 2 mussels, shrimp and scallops.
CanuckGirl got the cream version of this.
JojoCake had the Penne alla bombay ($7). It has chicken and tomatoes in a curry cream sauce.
I ordered the Risotto al frutti di mare ($7). It is risotto with seafood in a cream sauce. This dish was very very rich and got me full pretty fast. The first few bites were pretty good, but eventually it was a bit too creamy and fatty for my liking.
Overall, it was pretty average food. Nothing really outstanding. The only strength is just the cheap price. This place is quite popular with the Korean community in Coquitlam.
