Food For Thought, SBG
and so, i was at Food For Thought at the Singapore Botanic Gardens a couple of weeks ago for a small group outing.
once a quiet, really beautiful place to chill out in the gardens with fairly decent food at okay prices, its now transformed into a bustling, super busy space filled with people from all demographics. the oldies on the way to / from a garden walk, couples on a date, young people on a group outing (kinda like us, i'd like to think hehhehheh - obviously the word young is in question here) and multi-generational families with kiddoes going crazy at the play area.
i think the concept behind Food For Thought doesn't hurt at all either.
but all that aside, i actually do really like this place and i really love the space. as i was telling my friends, i could absolutely see someone booking out close to the entire space for a cool, casual, afternoon wedding reception. any takers? there's decent parking too.
anyway, all that aside, lets talk about the food.
this time we were there for a late lunch. for me though, having woken at about noon, this was brunch. and appropriately, i had this:
simple, uncomplicated eggs and toast. for about S$6 i think. i'm not much a bread person but this one was pretty good. thick, crust at the sides and soft in the middle, i enjoyed it. eggs were ok i suppose. but i think the real star of the day was this:
chocolate and raspberry pancakes. also for about $6 i think. these were really, really quite good. sinful and rich and not too sweet. really comforting food for a brunch out.
we also shared a plate of fried chicken wings on the side, also for about the same price. now that was good value for the money and the yum.
so yes, all in all - Food For Thought hasn't blown my mind food wise as yet and i'm guessing it might never will, judging from the mains that my friends had. but i can still see myself heading back again and again. its a convenient and pretty stop for visitors to the gardens or people just there for a bite on the weekend.
what main course would you recommend from Food For Thought?
