Good food for a healthy lifestyle

Another lunch place for the CBD people where they can enjoy a meal healthily! The Lawn at AXA tower. A surprise cozy corner, cafe alike style. Brightly lit cafe, with carpeted grass on part of the cafe and use of white wooden furniture. Overall, very soothing and relaxing atmosphere. They have dine in and takeaway options.

So basically The Lawn has 2 mains option. Either the salad bowl or olive rice. I’ve decided to go for the Olive rice set. I’ve choosen Char-grilled prawns with garlic and Me so Spicy for my dressing. Very flavorful rice, well cooked succulent crunchy prawns. And i totally like the dressing, spicy with tangy lemon taste. But i feel that the overall dish is too overwhelming, too rich and strong in taste. The salad really helps a lot in cleansing the rich aftertaste. As you can see, they are generous with their portion too! Even the salad consists of a variety of corn, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce. Filling meal indeed!

No matter how filling we are, how can a meal be complete with a dessert? They sell ice cream sandwiches! I’ve got the chocolate hazelnut! Chocolate hazelnut sandwiched between chocolate biscuits! Very chocolatey. If you’re not a chocolate lover, advise to choose from other flavours. If you need something a lil better for lunch, can check out The Lawn!

The lawn

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! SALAD 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. OLIVE RICE The rice was a little hard and slightly on the dry side, but it is tasty. GRILLS 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. SAUCES 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!

This is as healthy as it can get :)

Yanxi and I met at Tanjong Pagar MRT and via Exit E, we got to The Lawn very quickly!! It was a fully sheltered short 5 minutes leisurely walk. Even if I don’t work at Shenton Way, I don’t mind meeting friends here after work coz it’s so accessible by MRT!

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.

Great guilt-free food!

Have you ever been torn between the dilemma of wanting to stay healthy with eating greens, yet your teeth yearns to sink into some juicy pieces of freshly-grilled meat? Well, The Lawn Cafe - the only specialty grill and salad cafe / bar in Singapore that allows one to customize their salad and selects grilled meat to accentuate - allows you to literally have your cake and eat it too.    Diners select their choice of greens, meat, toppings and home-made dressings on this order form. Wan Tin very kindly informed that their chefs were preparing the specialties for the Beau and I, so we only had to choose our toppings - carrots, Parmesan cheese, grapes, cashews and olives.   This plate consists of Char-grilled Cajun Chicken and Char-grilled Prawns with garlic. The chicken was not exactly tender to a perfect T, but I really appreciated the absence of any fatty meats or skin at all. As Cajun goes, the flavor is more on the sapid side, a tad too salty for my liking, but I couldn't deny that the taste was simply awesome.    As for the prawns, they were fresh and juicy despite having being subjected to high level of heat, and the hints of smoky flavors complemented the succulent sweetness of the prawns.   This plate carries proudly its load of Butter-seared Pacific Dory with parsley rub, and Ben's Beef Rub.   I've tried dory many times before, and looking at the charred exterior, I had expected the texture to be somewhat rough / hard. However, the first bite left me widening my eyes in surprise literally - this dory melted in my mouth! Into a puddle of deliciousness, of course.   The beef chunks were well-marinated, succulent and crunchy at the same time - how did two different textures coexist together in the same piece of meat was something that baffled us - and is something that everyone should get to try for themselves to get what I mean.   Last but not least, the culprit that made the Beau so full because he could not stop eating - the Olive Rice. Yes, one may choose this in lieu of salads, to eat with their grilled meats. Cooked with their secret recipe (of course), the Olive Rice was very scrumptious, with a crispy, sticky texture that the palate agrees with totally.   For more detailed information and photos, do check out: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/06/invite-dinner-at-lawn-cafe.html

Best Service Ever!

It was 2pm on Monday and we were famished after 2 hrs of back to back meetings. Being a regular customer of The Lawn, I have decided to try out their delivery service. 

Soon after I did my online order, the store manager gave me a call to confirm it. To my surprise, he remembers who I am and knows how I want my salad made. 

The wait was painless, comparable to McDelivery, and our salads and grills (I ordered for the team) were as fresh and succulent as they were as if you dine in. 

My serendipitous experience with The Lawn's delivery makes me a 'bigger' fan from now on. 

If you are in the city and hungry for food yet stuck in the office, give them a try at order[.]thelawn[.]com[.]sg. I believed that they deliver to other parts of Singapore too.
