Went to Spruce for lunch today and we ordered a Tuna Burger and Tagliatelle (pork bolognese sauce).

The environment was pretty, the al fresco dining is much better than the indoors (maybe it was too chilly inside). The service was prompt and staff were friendly. But thats all it has to it, the food was not so impressive as the decor and staff.

Surprising that we could request for the Tuna Burger (Tuna patty) to be cooked medium, rare or well done! Not sure how this is going to affect the taste a lot, but I guess we can choose how juicy we want it to be!

In the end, the Tuna Burger was so-so and the fries were nicer. But too little fries! Didn't feel that it was worth S$20.

The Tagliatelle failed to impress either. The sauce was too salty (like way too salty, had to drink a few cups of water), although it was a generous serving of minced pork.

The pasta 'noodles' were nicer, but a little too hard. It was not cooked al dente (i.e. QQ texture, springy cooked but still retains some hardness in it - wiki says cooked to the bite).

Not a lot of restaurants serve pasta al dente, so all is forgiven.

Would recommend everyone NOT to get the Tagliatelle because it does not offer much on taste.

I visited Spruce at Tanglin and Bukit Timah, both did not impress me a lot and I do not think I will be visiting Spruce any time soon.
