Got an invitation to visit one of the latest restuarant in Raffles City shopping centre called “SUFOOD” which is sounds like “Shu Fu”, the chinese word for Comfortable! Serving up Italian inspired vegetarian food at affordable prices, they offer a 7 course meal at only SGD 25++!THE SUFOOD APPETIZERMade up of 3 different bites, you would have to start from right to left, with the flavours increasing in intensity. Flavours are uniquely different and I love the Tomato Jelly which tangy sour!1. Japa
THE SUFOOD APPETIZER Made up of 3 different bites, you would have to start from right to left, with the flavours increasing in intensity. Flavours are uniquely different and I love the Tomato Jelly which tangy sour!
1. Japanese Yuca root which is drizzled with blueberry coulis
2. Oriental white water snowflake greens
3. Savoury Cherry tomato jelly
ROSEMARY BREADSTICKS You can dip your breadsticks with the sweet mustard or blueberry dip. My savoury tastebuds vote for the Mustard sauce, while the blueberry version wasn’t too bad either!
TROPICAL FRUIT SALAD MUSHROOM SALAD Mushrooms together with broccoli and cherry tomatoes are mixed in a vinegar dressing to give you a tangy start to your meal. Definitely my top pick for salads! It is also the only cooked starter in the available selections.
SUMMER SALAD CLASSIC GARDEN SALAD Tried all 4 soups as well, and the Chinese soups definitely overshadowed the western offerings!
Both the “Root Soup” and ”Cabbage & Sweet Potato Stew” got raving reviews from all of us. the Cream of Pumpkin soup as well as Mushroom & Pea Pottage turned out to be slightly watery and bland.
CABBAGE AND SWEET POTATO STEW
CREAM OF PUMPKIN SOUP + MUSHROOM & PEA POTTAGE The mains were crazy delicious and definitely the best part of the entire dining experience! I can’t decide which is my favourite cause they are all so delicious!
BAKED POTATO AL FUNGHI Steam King Oyster mushrooms which are drizzled with herb vinaigrette turn out so soft and juicy that I could stop myself from having more. After the food tasting, I even got the same mushrooms and pan grill them at home.
STAR PIZZA Another recommended item would be the “Star Pizza” which is pizza shaped into a star shape and filled with generous toppings of oyster mushrooms, cream cheese and mustard sauce! I especially love how they generously topped the entire pizza with salted seaweed that gave it another flavour boost! There was even a guinesss record for the most number of Star pizza made one the first day of its opening!
MEDITERRANEAN VEGETABLE SKEWERS If you are going for something a little light and healthy, the Mediterranean skewers are definitely not to be missed. Grilled and braised in homemade italian herb dressing, you can also enjoy the vegetables with a serving of fried rice too! Probably one of the most beautifully presented dish of the night!
WILD MUSHROOM CHARCOAL TAGLIATELLE The Wild Mushroom Charcoal Tagliatelle was recommended for the health benefits which charcoal brings. On its own, it is pretty tasteless, however give the noodles a little twirling to soak up the yummy sauce it is resting on. The King Oyster mushrooms are shaped in sauce a way we kept thinking we were eating squid! I am pretty surprise how much I enjoy dish despite the lack of meat in it! There are also baked rice dishes and vegetable pita pockets which are equally yummy as well. They are a tad common in comparison to the other dishes, but definitely worth a try too!
OSMANTHUS FLOWER JELLY
SESAME PANNA COTTA I love this dessert for its smooth texture. For those you are afraid of the strong sesame smell, not to worry as the entire dessert is very light in flavour.
VANILLA ICE CREAM WITH HOT CHOCOLATE One thing to note, EAT FAST! If not the chocolate will form a hard chocolate dome over the ice cream. This simple dessert is still lovely to enjoy.
BANANA CHEESECAKE To end of the meal, you get a choice of tea and tropical fruit blends with the desserts. We managed to try other quite a number of items and the one which stood out to me was the Yuzu Chamomile Tea and the Passion Fruit Calamansi Tea. Sour and yet leaving a coying aftertaste after every sip, it has easily to love this 2 drinks after a full meal!
After tasting so many dishes at this restaurant, I highly recommend this as a stopover for your family dinners or even as a healthier alternative for gatherings with friends! Well thought out dishes which are rich in flavour and uses natural ingredients, it is a good stepping stone for people looking to start on a vegetarian diet. It was the first time I left a food tasting feeling un-sinful about the amount of food which I had consumed.
I definitely did enjoy my experience there and thank you so much to the PR team for having me down to have the first taste of the lovely menu!
