Happy new year everyone!!!
Ok, first of all, I know my last post was eons ago, so sorry to all of you waiting for updates!
So, to end off 2012 (and at the same time, celebrate Christmas) with a good meal, Kai and I headed down to Food For Thought @ Singapore Botanical Gardens. She has been persuading me to go there for the longest time (ok not really the longest lah, but quite a few times hahaha), so we decided to pop by on Christmas Day itself for our usual Christmas Day lunch!
Given that it was a public holiday, we had to walk around waiting for people to finish their food, looking like vultures targeting their next meal from the air >.< But we were lucky to get a seat after just a while of waiting.
Because we decided to share their pancakes besides having our own meal (yes, we were a little too greedy), Kai ordered their Bacon Potatoes Onion salad ($10.00), which is basically mixing leaves together with bacon, potatoes and onions hahaha. Ok lah, it says “Grilled bacon, roasted potatoes, caramelised onions with lemon thyme vinaigrette”.
I still maintain eating salads is like crunching leaves from the tree.
I love breakfast sets – it’s just something about them that makes me happy eating them compared to the rest of the food like pasta or pizza. So I gunned their Full Works ($18.00), and it came with scrambled eggs, bacon, butter toast, chunky chicken sausages (which were really nice!), hash browns, garlic mushrooms and a roasted tomato salad.
And remember how I said we were a little too greedy? Yes, we ended up with their Banana and Walnut Pancake ($10.00), which proved to be too much after our respective meals. This would make a good meal by itself.
Unlike Hatched, you have to order your food at the counter yourself, and the suaku me was still waiting for someone to come and take our orders -.-
It was my first time to Food For Thought, and I must say it’s a really nice place for a casual meal, catch-up session or informal meetings. You can choose to sit inside the air-conditioned restaurant/cafe, or outside but you’ll still be under shades. They also have a playground to cater to young kids who cannot sit still and eat!
Because Food For Thought revolves around their slogan “Good food for a good cause”, their various causes are painted onto the wall to promote what I would make out as “happiness”, “kindness” and perhaps “eco-friendliness”.
I must say we enjoyed our lunch at Food For Thought (perhaps more so than I did at other such eateries). If there’s one thing I don’t like about this, it’s the weekend crowd hahaha.
