Zespri Kiwifruit 14 Day Challenge Kick-off Dinner

Ladies and Gentlemen, for the next 14 days you are going to be inundated with kiwi delights (not the bird or the man, but the fruit) as I embark on Zespri’s 14 Day Daily Scoop Amazing Challenge.

Everyone knows the benefits of eating fruits, but did you know that Kiwifruits are one of the most nutrient dense fruits around? Kiwifruit has 5 times the nutrition of apples and contain twice the Vitamin C of Oranges! So the next time you fall ill, grab a kiwi instead of an orange! Don’t worry, I won’t drown you guys with too many facts (for now), although if you want to read up yourself you can definitely do so at http://www.zespri.com.sg/. For now, I’ll just share with you the wonderful kick-off dinner I had at The Living Cafe, courtesy of the good people of Zespri.

Oh just a short plug for The Living Cafe, they are into organic as well as raw food, prepared in a way that still makes the food taste great! Check out their menu here. Gotta bring my super healthy parents!

This is really the way to incorporate more healthy fruits into your diet in an interesting and fun way to eat. I mean we all know that we have to eat more fruits, but after our main meal, sometimes there just isn’t space for anything else. So the best way may just be to incorporate the fruits themselves into the main dishes!

And you thought that bruschetta can only be made with bread and tomatoes.

1983 A Taste of Nanyang

Just found out that a new food court has opened in Marina Bay Sands. It’s located below Carnivore, at the exact opposite end of Rasapura Masters Food Court and the Skating Rink. I think the Marina Bay Financial Centre people would be most happy as they now don’t have to walk to the far end of MBS to have lunch! When I was at 1983 A Taste of Nanyang, I saw a lot of office types wearing lanyards from various banks, so lots of people from MBFC must be making the hot and unsheltered trek to MBS.

1983 A Taste of Nanyang is owned by Koufu, who are also the owners of Rasapura Masters. I did a quick look of the place, and it seems that 1983 A Taste of Nanyang is somewhat more affordable than Rasapura Masters. If you’re in the vicinity of Marina Bay Sands and you want to find cheap food in MBS, 1983 A Taste of Nanyang’s probably a good bet. Speaking of affordability, ToastBox also has some affordable items like Laksa and Chicken curry for about $5 or so, but the selections are limited. So the secret’s out, now you know where to dine on a budget.

There are cosy booth seats available at 1983 A Taste of Nanyang. I actually like the look and feel of this food court more than Rasapura Masters. Rasapura Masters is good for those who want to watch the skaters while they dine, or if you’re at the skating rink / theatre / ArtScience Museum end of MBS.
