Eco Secret

As much as we love the protective green surrounds of Eco Gourmet Café , make sure you spray on some mosquito repellent when you come for the weekend- and public holidays-only brunch. The Eco Special (a poached egg, bacon, rosti and salad, $25) is the main offering, although other options like a Wagyu sirloin steak sandwich ($45) are also on the menu. Kids have their own options here, too - six to be exact ($10-$15); from a ham and cheese sandwich to a satisfying plate of fish and chips.

Disgusting

I have enjoyed a weekend brunch at Eco before an really enjoyed it.  Today, though, I ate there for a weekday lunch and was disgusted.  

Don't get me wrong - the location is still stunning and the staff excellent, but I had a sandwich that was so sub-par, even Subway would have thrown it out and offered me something else.  

$28 for a sandwich? It had better be good!  Nope.  Not even close.  

The sandwich was a "Reuben", a classic American concoction with corned or smoked beef, emmenthal and sauerkraut.  No, not here.  Instead, they use the toughest corned beef I have ever had.  Corned beef is easy to cook, you just have to allow it long enough, but I think this beef was cooked for under an hour (needs at least 4+ hours on low heat).  The result was an extremely tough piece of meat - tasty but tough.  Hard to eat.  

The "swiss cheese" looked and tasted like the cheapest process slices (Chesdale?) but the sauerkraut was nice - just not enough of it.

The bread is also important. A "proper" Reuben needs to be on rye bread.  I know of at ;east two bakeries that sell rye bread in Singapore, but Eco uses a very dense multigrain that is sliced far too thinly and over-toasted.  The end result was two very tough slices of bread around a tough bit of meat. Not good.  Anyway, at these prices, Eco should be baking their own light rye bread.

Finally, chips.  Where were the chips.  The menu said that the sandwich came with chips but there was only a light salad of microgreens.  Good salad but it ddn't really complement the sandwich.

Come on Eco, pull your socks up!

Expensive, Awful Food, Bad service. Never again

I went there on a saturday night. I had a party of 10 of which there were 3 kids and 1 vegetarian. While we were waiting for some of my other guests to arrive, the waitress asked us to place order for the kids and the vegetarian so that the chef can prepare 1st. So we did. 15 minutes later, they served the kids and the vegetarian meal! I told them that the rest of us have not ordered and food should be served altogether! they laughed and apologise but never offered to take the food back. The carbonara was tasteless, you can taste the raw egg coated on the noodles and there was hardly any pancetta in it. All that for $26 is absolutely ridiculous. the kids fish and chips were cold and tasteless and the fries were soggy. the moment any of us finished our meal, the staff literally ran over to clear the plates. my guests and i felt very rushed. we also ordered the bread and butter pudding (how bad can that be?). It was a block of thick hard bread, some parts were warm and we literally had to use force to cut thru the bread only to find its cold inside. the peach and mango sticky rice had no mango in them. later we realise that they have another party of about 20-25 pax and we guess they must be rushing to clear us so that the kitchen can concentrate on them. Overall a real bad experience, food was so awful especially when its extremely overpriced. Service sucks. Never again.
