Macaroni Alfredo Casserole

SUFOOD is a meat-free (aka vegetarian) dining concept hailing from Taiwan’s largest restaurant chain operator WOWPRIME. In collaboration with local PUTIEN, SUFOOD opens its first outlet outside of Taiwan in Singapore at Raffles City. The casual yet stylish 140-seater diner draws the health conscious crowd with its affordable full-service meat-free experience.

The Italian-inspired menu introduces sparks of novelty into modern day meat-free eating. Using about 200 ingredients, many of which sourced regionally, hugely focused on freshness, all food is prepared with no artificial flavourings or MSG.

SUFOOD appetiser: poached Japanese Yuca root with blueberry coulis, white water snowflake greens, cherry tomato jelly

Set menus are affordable at $25++ for a full customisable 8-course meal, consisting of the SUFOOD appetiser, rosemary breadsticks, fruit vinegar, choice of salad (4 choices), soup (4 choices), main (10 choices), dessert (4 choices) and drink (8 choices). If you don’t have time for a lengthy lunch, go for the 5-course Express Set Lunch at $18++ that comes with your choice of salad or soup, main, dessert and drink.

(May-June 2013 Dining Destination Feature: The Grandstand) Veganburg

The Grandstand is an up-and-coming dining destination; a respite from the accustomed hustle; and a realm very unlike the malls in the city that’s thronged with shoppers.
