Roots Mediterranean – Hearty Mediterranean fare along Greenwood Avenue

[Media Invite]

Roots Mediterranean is a new restaurant nestled along Greenwood Avenue which has taken over the former Donna Carmela Italian Restaurant’s premises. Here you will find an extensive menu featuring Mediterranean fare that combines Italian, Spanish, Greek and Levantine cuisines. The menu is so extensive, you will be hard-pressed to decide what dishes you want, so the trick is to come with a whole group of friends or family and then you can order more. Indeed there were many tables with large groups when I was there a few Saturday evenings ago. Certainly, the rustic and earthy decor makes for a convivial ambience.

[Media Invite]

Yes it’s true, the Pizza Hut Pizza buffet is back, from 25 June – 26 August 2018. It’ll be showcasing six new and improved Pan Pizza flavours. What’s this new and improved Pan Pizza? They are familiar favourites tweaked to have a crispier crust, improved signature sauce and toppings closer to the edge of the pizzas, ie more topping to dough ratio.

Skyve Wine Bistro

Tucked away in the Newton area, just off bustling Orchard Road is Skyve Wine Bistro. It occupies the former Monk’s Hill Secondary School. The place is pretty old school, pun intended. There are lots of plants all around which makes you feel as if you are dining in a park. Skyve has just revamped their menu and we were lucky to have the opportunity to check it out. The area is pretty quiet at night even though it’s Newton.

Featuring an all-day wine and dine concept open for breakfast to after-dinner drinks, the wine bistro offers three different spaces perfect for any occasion. Those inclined towards a quick tipple can opt for the alfresco area, while the indoor area comprise of the main dining hall with mismatched classroom-like chairs and a lounge area with long benches to reflect its “old school” character.

Cafe Melba

I’m always on the look out for new restaurants in the East, and thankfully, it seems that more restaurants have been opening up lately. Mind you, there’s still room for more so I’m still waiting! Today I wanted to have lunch at The Big Sheila tucked away in an obscure part of Siglap (Swan Lake Ave, have you heard of it?). It was 2pm already and I couldn’t get a table! That’s how bad the situation is in the East. Too much demand and too little supply.

Anyway, I want to share with you this new find in the Tanjong Rhu/Mountbatten/Katong area. I think people living in the area all know about it as it faces a busy main road. It’s Cafe Melba, located at where the La Salle Arts School once used to be. I’ve only been once so far, on a Saturday night and it was also full house. It’s a nice place, with a huge al-fresco area. The inside seating isn’t huge though. Dog lovers will love Cafe Melba as it is dog friendly. Also, there is a huge lawn in front of Cafe Melba, which would be great for the kids and the dogs.

Not too sure if it would be sweltering in the day time because I went at night.

Cafe Melba - Ham and pineapple (Tomatoes, ham, pineapple, mozzarella) 9 inch $18 (2)

Ham and pineapple pizza (Tomatoes, ham, pineapple, mozzarella) 9 inch $18

They have 3 sizes of pizza to choose from but we took the smallest one at 9 inches. Those who like thin crust pizza would certainly like this one. It’s not so thin that it’s crispy like a biscuit, it does go a little floppy towards the middle. Toppings were nice and on the whole the pizza was quite nice.

Cafe Melba - Melba beef rendang in (Beef in coconut milk, ginger and spices, shoe-string fries and pizza breads) $18 (1)

Interesting to find Rendang at a Western bistro and it’s always a risk to order Asian dishes as it takes a really versatile chef to be good with both Western and Asian cuisines. The Rendang tasted quite authentic. It was quite heavy and rich and it was a delight to mop up the Rendang gravy with the pizza breads provided. The beef though was forgettable as it was stringy and slightly tough.

Beer Market at Clarke Quay

You may have heard of the stock market, but have you ever heard of a beer market? You heard me right man. I recently discovered this lovely hangout place in Clarke Quay called Beer Market. It is run by 3 beer loving best friends who used to study together at SJI. They say many a friendship is ruined when friends become colleagues. Guess this rule doesn’t apply to the trio as Beer Market has been going strong for the last 3 years!

Beer Market, as the name suggests, really works like a stock exchange.There is no shouting of course, anyway it’s all automated nowadays, except for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange I believe. Incidentally, I was working at the Singapore Exchange when they closed the floors, but I digress.Beer Market Trading Screens (5)

Screens like these are located all over the restaurant pub. It’s not too difficult to grasp. All you have to do is keep watch of the prices, which is the price you’d pay if you ordered a beer at that instant. The prices change every 30 minutes, so there’s no need to be on your toes the entire time. If you like the price, you buy. If you don’t, you wait, or you choose a different beer. Easy peasy right? For detailed instructions, click here.

If you love sampling new types of beer, Beer Market is the perfect place. There is less risk in trying out beers with low buying volume as those beers are at a cheaper price! Wow I love this concept!
