With a visually arresting brick feature wall, set against an industrial floor, Sprigs looks minimalist chic, but plate-wise, it could not be more different. At a recent tasting session at the two-month old contemporary bistro, the plates were hearty tapestries of colours in the form of sprigs of herbs and greens artistically strewn around. The menu, crafted by Chef Shubri (formerly from French restaurant, Gunther’s – which is a few doors down), is herb-heavy, which aims to enhance the flavour of food.
 
The 44-seater oozes with a sleek contemporary charm;  the décor boasts a strong play of lines, from the accordion-shaped celling, hexagonal tiles, and three 1.8m postmodern artwork depicting different takes on everyday objects from a fork, fusilli, and yarn and scissors.
 
The epicurean journey opened with a chilled bowl of Green Pea Soup($15). Recommended for veggie fans, as the soup has a marshy-and-milky flavour. The green pool forms a moat around a mound of blue swimmer crabmeat salad. The fresh crab morsels are drizzled with Ardoino olive oil, which seemed to be overshadowed by the pea flavour.
