Walking into The Lawn, we instantly felt at home with the woody furniture, the fake grass to simulate an actual lawn and the comfy sofa seats with vibrant coloured pillows and cute vegetable soft toys to make it feel even homelier! We ordered one of the Chef’s picks which is the Hunky Dory, an Olive Rice set with char-grilled Cajun Chicken, and our own customised salad bowls with our own grills!
If you order the basic Salad Bowl ($9.90), you get a Mesclun salad with 5 toppings of your choice, topped with a dressing; also of your choice! The basic Olive Rice set ($8.90) also comes with a side salad topped with a dressing of your choice. If you want some meats to go with your salad or your olive rice, you get to add on grills from $3 - $5. Wallet friendly? Hell yes!
On the whole, all the fruits and the greens that we picked were all fresh, crunchy and juicy! You wouldn’t go wrong with your favourites, whatever they are.
The rice was a little hard and slightly on the dry side, but it is tasty.
Grilled Black Pepper Duck Breast (+ $4.00)
It has a tangy appetising flavour to it, though the meat is slightly tough, it is still very juicy!
Chicken Breast with Fresh Herbs (+ $3.00)
Slightly salted with a tinge of herbs, texture of the chicken breast is tender.
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken (+ $3.00)
Tastes like your regular Teriyaki Chicken, nothing too fancy.
Char-grilled Cajun Chicken ( +$3.00)
The chef was generous on the Cajun seasoning; it has a very strong Cajun flavour. Chicken was once again rather tender.
Char-grilled Prawns with Garlic (+ $4.00)
Prawns used were fresh and it was grilled till it has got a slight brown sear on the sides, taste of the garlic was prominent yet not overpowering.
Char-grilled Mixed Mushrooms (+ $3.00)
Very flavourful and tasty, the mushrooms were grilled to perfection, being soft and juicy. The mushrooms were seasoned with pepper, garlic, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and maybe a little oyster sauce. One of our favourites!
Butter-seared Pacific Dory with Parsley Rub (+ $4.00)
The dory was fresh, tender, juicy with a slightly crispy outer layer. Seasoning was light and not too buttery.
Ben’s Beef Rub (+ $5.00)
The rub consisted of mainly black pepper, although the beef was well done, it was not too tough and still manageable.
Another reason to go to The Lawn, is that they have got their own home-made dresses that are so delectable and unique you can’t find them anywhere else!
In a nutshell, The Lawn is a cafe serving salads with a whole array of nutritious grilled meats/ vegetables you can choose from. For friends who cannot go without rice, there’s this Olive Rice set which you can order along with its grills. If you are Paleo like me, get the salad bowl! And they have an astounding 10 types of dressings – all unique and flavourful :) Best thing is, you decide what you want inside your bowl.
The Lawn operates at two locations – Shenton Way and Biopolis.
