What's Real Food about? We know that they practise healthy living because of their strict vegan menu, but there is something more about what this restaurant chain offers. It is that 'zen' feeling which I get when I step into the restaurant. The dim yellow lightings and wooden furniture makes me feel at home, and the kitchen concept is extremely open. This is not any vegetarian diet that the hawker center offers, because there is absolutely NO MOCK MEAT. This is the true diet of a health-consciou
So I ordered a cup of Oat Milk with Almond. It is apparently made from unpeeled and unbleached almonds to ensure better aroma and nutrition. Honestly, I'm not a fan of almonds and the oat milk tasted funny. I could hardly taste the oats, but the strong stench of almonds (haha yes, the smell of almonds is a stench to me) really lingered in an aftertaste. I felt super perked up by it though, it definitely did not taste like any of those in a carton or milk packet. GARLIC / ONIONS
Genovese Pesto Pasta
The Pesto Pasta is an organic pasta, tossed with homemade organic pesto, fresh grilled courgettes, olives and crumbled boiled potatoes. It is topped with delicious feta cheese and fresh basil leaves. I have never tasted vegetables that are so fresh and so good. There is a crunch in every bite, due to the courgette. Even the boiled potatoes were full of flavour, who says healthy food can't be that good? I really had a misconception that any food that is linked to healthy would be bad, but Real Food really made the effort in ensuring their food is not only presentable, healthy, but it also taste great!
Original Strawberries and Banana Pancakes $ 9.80**
This delicious, organic gluten and wheat free fluffy pancakes is topped with strawberries, bananas and organic agave. It took 25 minutes for them to make this, and they did give us a heads-up before preparing that their pancakes would take longer because they would do the mix from scratch. True enough, their pancakes really took 25 minutes and IT IS ABSOLUTELY HEAVENLY. All the pancakes in the world suddenly pale in comparison to their made-from-scratch pancakes, and even though its' not something that they boast of, the kitchen staff secretly works behind the scene and all of the employees there have one philosophy and passion: to make healthy food that taste good too. Dripped with honey over the pancake, the batter was not only fragrant but also moist and juicy. The organic banana and strawberry is a blend between sweetness and sourness, and if there is any dish that would define a state of bliss, the Original Strawberries and Banana Pancakes would be it. Who else can trademark or patent such a claim that their pancakes are original? Only Real Food. Posting this photo just for fun to show how delicious it is. I would wipe their plates clean (no need to hire dishwasher anymore, Real Food!)
I would recommend you to try the original strawberries and banana pancakes if you are a newbie in starting a healthy diet. Go slow and steady, but don't stop!
