Macaronita is Adel Imam’s Son’s Pasta Eatery in Sahel & That's the Tea

A belly full of fresh pasta is exactly how we’re tryna spend those lazy Sahel days.

Uhm, soooo Adel Imam’s son just opened up his very own pasta shop in Sahel and we’re actually shook. Hotshot director Rami Imam has decided to try his hand in the food business and honestly we’re really not mad. Macaronita just popped up on the shores of Hacienda Red with a unique sexy menu full of saucy Italian pasta creations that’ll have you feeling a little extra this summer. 

The seasoned director is funneling his production skills into this new restaurant, loading up the menu with exquisite flavour profiles that are actually drool worthy. Before we delve deep into the carb-tastic world of fresh pasta, we must first inform you of their ridiculous appetizers. Feeling rich? Start on a prosperous note with their ‘Millionaire’—a dish consisting of hand-cut steak house fires, topped with their house made blended herbs truffle paste and tons of parmesan cheese. Tryna not fill up before you indulge in pasta? Go for their light and sweet ‘Chicken Muffuletta Salad’ bursting with grilled chicken, sweet corn, smoked almonds and vinaigrette.  

Fresh pasta, rolled out on the spot just hits differently. That al dente bite gives you the perfect chew to counterbalance the decadence of the sauces and profusion of toppings. From Bacon Shroom to Chicken Mushroom Truffle to Crunch Pesto, these pastas are as colorful as they are flavorful. Our favorite though has to be the signature ‘Macaronita’—a medley of meatballs, red sauce, capers, ginger and crunchy herbed bread crumbs.
