Who wants to eat UBC's SUB food everyday? Not me. Whether you're on a tight schedule or have a longer break, the Point Grey Village on W10th is just a few minutes away by bus.
The first time I tried Some Kinda Pasta was actually somewhat of an impromptu decision. It seemed like a cozy little place, and I was so impressed with it that I came back again! Here, you can pick from their wide range of sauces and type of pasta to create your own meal.
Pictured above is the Chorizo Sausage with penne ($10.95 + tax). I'm not a big fan of creamy pastas, and prefer my sauces to have a strong tomato flavor. This sauce was great-- very tasty, chunky and just a little bit spicy. The sausage was also very good, and had a smoky flavor to it. Their portions are fairly large, above is actually a half order!
This is the Seasoned Meatballs with angel hair pasta ($14.95 + tax). Originally, I thought the two tomato sauces would taste the same, but they actually were quite distinct. This sauce was not as strong, and had a smoother texture. The meatballs were fantastic.
Some Kinda Pasta had wonderful service with friendly waiters who made sure our water glasses were always full, regardless of how busy it was. Each meal also starts with unlimited warm, fresh bread, which was very nice.
If I'm ever craving some pasta, or if I'm extra hungry, Some Kinda Pasta will definitely be high on the list of places to curb my hunger. They also have daily specials that change throughout the week, so I'm sure there will be something to cater to your specific tastes!
