15th September 2016, PHNOM PENH – PastaMania, Singapore’s largest Italian casual dining restaurant chain and Gelatofix, an Italian Gelateria and Cafeteria concept, launched its flagship food service retail outlet on the capital’s riverfront.
The 5,000 square feet PastaMania & Gelatofix outlet is strategically located at an exclusive heritage site opposite tourist and local hot spot, and along the famous Mekong River. “It has been a much-anticipated wait to realize my dream of bringing a ‘piece of Italy’ to Cambodia through PastaMania & Gelatofix. It brings about new food innovation, vibrancy to the local F&B scene and authentic Italian F&B concepts that will correspond well with 60% of Cambodian population below 35 of age and an increasing number of expatriates living in or visiting Cambodia”, said Mr. Khun Heng, CEO of K Distribution.
“PastaMania features the widest range of great tasting pasta dishes along with authentic thin-crust Italian pizza that suit the taste buds of Cambodians. We will also be the first in the market to launch an authentic Italian gelato coffee shop chain under Gelatofix.” Mr. Wilson Lim, Executive Director of Commonwealth Capital Group commented. Our concepts present an all-Italian affair. Firstly, at PastaMania, we use only top grade ingredients from Italy such as high quality durum wheat pasta packed-with-nutrients, extra virgin olive oil and Parmaharvested preservative-free tomato sauces.
Next, Gelatofix features an authentic Italian-star line up with a renowned designer creating the lifestyle concept ambience with a menu handcrafted by a gelato world cup champion. While full main course menu of pasta, risotto, sandwiches are served at the outlet, be sure to leave some space for the signature dessert, ‘The Magic Boxx’. A fusion of Asian bread toasted to perfection, cubed in sweet buttery texture, topped with Italian gelatos and served with a treasured chest of chocolate. A must-try!
Following the successful launch of the flagship store, K Distribution has development plans in the pipeline to have six PastaMania and Gelatofix stores in the next 30 months.
