Have you been to a farm in Singapore? I haven't, not until now! The Bollywood Veggies is a ten-acre farm, located at Kranji. There are wide variety of plantations there, ranging from flowers, herbs and spices to fruit trees. You can take a relaxing stroll in the farm while enjoying the greenery. Depending on the season, they will harvest some of their fruits or vegetables for sale on site.
Poison Ivy Bistro is located inside Bollywood Veggies, near the entrance. It has a rather rustic countryside setting. We had a peaceful and relaxing dining experience there. Despite the secluded location, their business seems good! When we finally finished our stroll and decided it was time to fill up our stomachs, we were told that the indoor dining area was fully booked, and it was during a weekday lunch time!
Their menu was written on this big black board.
Get revitalised with these Cold Lemongrass Drink ($2) and Hot Fig Tea ($2)! They were refreshing and most importantly, not those artificially sweet beverages and you will be able to taste the natural wonder of the ingredients inside.

We ordered a salad - Roasted Pumpkin with Parmesan Cheese and Roast Corn ($8). The dressing served was mint yoghurt. Pumpkin was sweet and roasted until tender, with a hint of balsamic vinegar.

I was slightly taken aback by the name of this curry, it is called Warrior's Chicken Curry ($10). Turned out that it was not as spicy as I thought, but the sauce was thick enough to my liking. I poured it all over my rice.

Farm minestrone soup with bread - the consistency of this soup is thicker than what we usually have. The bread, instead of being dipped inside the soup, I used it to wipe clean the curry sauce!

This was the Twice Cooked Pandan Lemongrass Kampong Chicken ($14), under the Ang Mo Specials. The chicken was a tad dry but the marination was flavorful. We saw few feathers left on the chicken though.

Taste-wise, the food here is slightly above average. Experience-wise, surrounded by the greenery, away from the bustle of the city life, no wonder despite the secluded location the place was almost full house.
