Food For Thought is all about serving up good food for a good cause. Nosh on comfort food such as sage roasted pumpkin risotto, rosemary garlic fries, and hazelnut chocolate crunch, or do some ethical shopping in the merchandise section for soft toys, teeshirts, (pre)loved books and other beautiful things.
Here are some of the food tried: for more details visit http://dairycream.blogspot.sg/2012/10/food-for-thought.html
Pumpkin Cream Soup
Natural sweetness and thick in taste. Not too much cream added and a slight grainy texture gives a kind of rustic feel to this simple dish
Hoi Sin Marinated Baby Back Ribs With potato cheese gratin
Look at that long slab of meat, flavoursome but not too salty. Meat is tender with bits of fats. Good for sharing even btw 3 person. Salad is same as the cheese toast but lacks dressing
Butterscotch apple crumble with vanilla ice cream and sautéed cherries and berries (good for 2)
Ice cream came like a big snowball. Crumble is average and is more cakey lumpy rather than buttery or crunchy. Prefer apple slices to apple chunks and a pity only to have tasted the butterscotch sauce at the very end as it was buried at the base.
First visted because it's a social enterprise and the restaurant really had nice deco and ambience. Subsequently the food wasn't as good and it's also much more expensive than other restaurants. Well I dont really see how they are giving back to the society so I stop going. Prefer to do my part for society elsewhere With more impact.
This is my fourth time there, the last being a year ago. Extremely disappointing. I placed my kids' order first, very soon after we sat down as we wanted to take a bit more time deciding on our own food. Even with the kids' order placed 5-10minutes early, the kitchen didnt even START prepping their food until all the adult dishes were served. It was a horrible half hour wait before our kids got their fried fish fingers and one pan cake. The restaurant was just 30% full at that time (like 5tables with lunch goers). 1) Kid's one single pancake was the longest wait, about half hour after order was placed. It was filled with chocolate chips, drenched in syrup, heaped with whipped cream covered with rainbow sprinkles. It was so terribly unhealthily thought out that my 3year refused to eat more than first bite. 2) Fish fingers were dry, served with fries. Not to forget, after being asked to check on the food 3 times, to compensate for the long wait, the servers went to the kitchen, took two scoops of pumpkin(?) soup and plonked it on our table with nothing more than saying "this is free. sorry for the wait." and walked away. The soup was so salty, no one could taste what it was, no one could drink it. The servers saw all these untouched food on our table, and didnt bother to ask too. We paid $50 for this meal. And had to go macdonalds for a healthier lunch.
