Stumbled upon Real Food Café while I was on my way to a meeting with Nuffnang back in Singapore. So I managed to convince Huiwen and Amanda to have lunch and our meeting there 😛
To be honest, we only realized that it was a vegan restaurant upon reading everything on the menu. There were no fish, chicken or meat in any of the dishes!
The dish could use a little bit more flavor – perhaps some garlic would do the trick. I sprinkled a little too much seasoning on it (I think it was paprika powder…) which made it tastier but my stomach was burning by the time I finished everything on the plate. I should really take my doctor’s advice and lay off the spicy food until my acid reflux has gone down. But man, I just can’t live without spice.
The Wheatgrass Apple juice was recommended by the waitress and I liked it. It tasted more like apple juice than wheatgrass but was certainly refreshing.
Thoughts: While the food is reasonably priced, the dishes are fairly easy to prepare for yourself at home. Everything on the menu is so healthy that they don’t even do fries! It’s nice to see that there’s finally an organic vegan restaurant in town, perhaps they’ll bring Whole Foods to Singapore too? Although, I highly doubt it as the prices will be insane.
Speaking of which, would I be vegan if I wanted to? The answer is yes. But I don’t think I’m ready to commit on giving up fish and chicken. I could maybe try it out for a week though. We’ll see about that.
KL, when are you going to catch up and start opening up more healthy restaurant/cafe spots?
Real Foods is located at Central (Clarke Quay) at#B1-52/53.
I was in Singapore the other day and attended the NIKE Spring 2011 Launch at Naumi Hotel Suite.
One of his memorable quotes: “My momma always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where the go, where they’ve been. I’ve worn lots of shoes, I bet if I think about it real hard I can remember my first pair of shoes.”
