Spruce@Katong: Spruce’s First Franchise Enterprise, 200-inch TV Screening Barclays Premier League, & Menu Unique to Katong – The Chosen Glutton

Spruce@Katong is Spruce’s very first franchise outlet. They’ve at all times been located someplace within the West; this franchise seeks to deliver the trendy American meals idea to the East of Singapore. Soccer followers shall be thrilled to listen to that the 125-seated restaurant is fitted with a 200-inch LED TV that streams stay sports activities together with Barclays Premier League. #YaGunnersYes. Now you realize the place our allegiance lies.

The portion of SPRUCE Signature Salad ($19++) was so enormous it was most likely sufficient to be one’s major course. It is good worth for this contemporary mixture of avocado, goat’s cheese, dates, corn, corn bread, tomatoes, almonds, and champagne dressing. Eggs and Turkey Bacon might be added at $2++ every.

For the much less health-conscious, we advocate its Signature Spicy Hen Balado Pizza ($17++), which isn’t solely cheaper, however prone to be extra filling. The skinny crust, topped with mozzarella cheese, sliced ​​rooster, crimson and inexperienced chilli, and candy and spicy balado sauce, was a lot to our liking. It is thick sufficient to not resemble biscuit, but skinny sufficient to not hinder the enjoyment of the toppings.

SPRUCE Home Wings :: $17++ to $18++

What we are able to conclude from previous experiences is that Singaporeans are obsessive about placing their spice-tolerance to a check. Spruce caters to the complete vary of eaters – Black Candy Wings ($17++) and Sassy Wings ($17++) for individuals who don’t checklist “spicy” of their dictionary, with the previous being dominantly candy, and the latter being solely barely (we daresay negligibly) spicy however much less candy. The SPRUCE Scorching Wings ($17++) is the place it begins to get sizzling in right here – it is medium-level bearable type of spicy; nonetheless probably satisfying. When you cross that threshold to the DEVIL’s Wings ($18++), you could want to have a glass of milk inside attain – do not say you haven’t been warned. The wings themselves had been meaty and juicy, with the pores and skin skinny and crisp.

The pasta dishes had been a let-down, particularly since we had a level of expectation from the outline on the menu. The orecchiette pasta, which serves as the bottom for the SPRUCE Prawn Pasta ($22++)was particularly robust and dry, even for the Italian normal of al dente. We additionally thought that the zucchini and garlic cream sauce was gentle.

The “Katong” Hen Laksa Spaghetti ($22++) was barely extra acceptable. It was additionally on the dry aspect, though much less so than the Prawn Pasta. Likewise, we thought the flavour may have been stronger; spicier, extra beneficiant with the coconut, and the portion of rooster extra liberal. This dish is unique to Spruce@Katong.

Floor twice earlier than being pressed, the meat patty of The SPRUCE Burger ($20++) was disappointing. Whereas the patty had chunky consistency, which we favor to finely minced meat, it was insufficiently seasoned, by the way revealing the dearth of inherent taste of the meat. Its meaty counterpart, Chimichurri Lamb Chops ($24++) carried out higher. The Lamb Chops had been succulent, albeit struggling the identical destiny as the meat patty as being under-seasoned. The mint chimichurri sauce may need been the redeeming attribute. Do observe, nevertheless, that the mint overpowers any garlic or parsley taste chimichurri is meant to own.
