Tonite I am being invited to a tasting of new dishes which will be lauching on 1 Nov. A 8-course meal here costs $29.80++ and consists of starter, bread, cider, salad, soup, main, dessert and drink. We start the meal with the usual which are vinegar cider and breadstick.SUFOOD Signature CiderIt is tasted sweet and tart, which is used for palate cleansing.Rosemary BreadsticksIt is served with either Mustard or Blueberry Dip. I myself prefer the blueberry dip as it is sweet and rich in taste.Soup:

Soup: Misto Mushroom Soup
hearty stew of mixed mushrooms simmered in vegetable stock that deliver a refreshing taste
The soup is made of 4 different types of mushrooms - Button mushroom, White Shimeji Mushroom, Bai-ling mushroom (bai ling gu 百靈菇), and Brazil mushroom 巴西蘑菇. The Brazil mushroom has a unique dried up appearance but taste crunchy. The soup is light and flavourful. I wish that we could have been served more of it.
Main courses: Rainbow Baked Pasta
classic Italian baked pasta filled with broccoli, cherry radish and oven-baked in signature creamy tomato sauce
The dish is kind of similar to another dish Macaroni Alfredo Casserole in this current menu, but this version is made with pink sauce which kind of make the dish less rich in taste. Zesty Oyster Mushroom Rice
King oyster mushrooms infused with spicy sauce, served with oven-roasted rice and garnished with colourful vegetables
It is the restaurant's version of Bibimbap, but the taste is a far cry from the actual stuff. I feel that too much doenjang (a salty soybean paste) is added, which makes the dish rather salty. The rice has a odd curry powder taste which the staff replys that it is from the spinach. This is just not my kind of dish. Lucky Clover Pizza
A lucky 6-leaf clover shaped pizza filled with Lion’s mane mushrooms, broccoli, pepper and scallions
The part that is topped with scallions, kinda of reminds me of the chinese style of Spring onion pancakes 葱油饼. Almost want to ask if there is vinegar dip to go with it. The Lion’s mane mushrooms is diced up to represent meat cubes. Interesting. White Ferula Pesto Pasta
Italian pasta sautéed with fresh basil pesto and topped with White Ferula Mushrooms
The pesto sauce is quite rich and flavourful, which is balanced by the shredded pickled red cabbage in taste. The pine nuts give a nutty texture to the dish. One of my favourite dish tonight.
Dessert: Mango Frollino
A flavourful layered cake with fresh mango cubes, custard sauce and blueberry
The top and the bottom are covered with egg crepe. The custard is served frozen with the mango cubes in it, in order to hold its shape. Feel that it would be better if there is more mango in it.
Fruit Juices: For Fruit Juices, there is 5 new drinks whose colors assoicated with the restaurant's logo, but only 4 are served in this tasting.
White in color, the drink is made of pear and yucca roots. Refreshing and cooling in taste. I am expecting the drink to be thicker since yucca root is used.
Red in color, the drink is made of tomato and watermelon. Tastes mainly the watermelon. Would have prefer a stronger amount of tomato juice in it. Seem that cherry tomatoes are used here which is why the amount is not noticeable.
Green in color, the drink is made of choy sum and sour plum. The sour plum lends a unique sour taste to the otherwise rather green drink. It really shooks one awake.
Yellow in color, the drink is made of orange and pineapple. Light and refreshing in taste.
Overall the food is not bad. Although the servings are in tasting portions, we are all quite full at the end of the meal. Looking forward to the launch of the dishes on 1 Nov.
