I was introduced to this eatery along Beach Road by a friend working at Keypoint who advocates healthy eating.
When we reached it was about 7pm and not many customers. To our disappointment, the highly recommended Organic Brown Rice Set was sold out, as most of their customers come during lunch time.
So I ordered the Zha Jiang Mian ($7)
. The noodle was more like linguine type and it came with a lot of mixed vegetables & 2 slices of pumpkin. I had to mix the zha jiang sauce well with the veg & noodles. Tasty! It's very different from the typical zha jiang mian that I have eaten before. The pumpkins were very sweet & tasted like sweet potato.
My friend had the Soba Wakame Miso Soup ($7)
which had generous serving of sweet corn, mushrooms, celery & pumpkin. She told me she likes it very much & it's not her first time ordering this. But well, I'm not a celery fan so I'm not sure if this is suitable for me or not hehe.
We also ordered the Xiao Long Bao
as our side dish. The dish was served on a plate - 6 mini xiao long bao, really mini! hehe we kind of regretted ordering this though, as the ginger they put in the dumplings was too much & too strong for our liking. In fact I had to swallow the dumpling in 1 mouthful so as to avoid biting into the ginger & getting the taste "diffused" into my mouth directly.
We only managed to eat half of the portion.
Lastly, I had the Black Sesame Pudding ($3.50)
as my dessert. It was wholesome, not too sweet, & great black sesame taste! Very smooth texture. I love it
When you feel like having a healthier meal, you can try this eatery as they serve filtered water at the table and also use it in their cooking. The food they offer is also low in salt and oil.
