Open Farm Community (Singapore)
On the premise of Open Farm Community you will find a very stylish setup within a tropical lush garden right on Dempsey. Definitely, the concept is more aiming at the healthy & organic folks amongst us.
The first time I walked into the amazing venue of Open Farm Community not only the awesome restaurant but also the good looking chef known from Open Door Policy distracted me. Some months and several visits later I had to find out that the good looking gentlemen (from Italy?) has left both Open Door Policy as well as Open Farm Community. 🙁
Why do I know? Well check both venues Websites (or go eat there). Also, I recommend to check out both menues and you will soon find out that there a lots of similarities between the two. Well that doesn’t come out of the blue, the new head chef is the same.
This tiny bit of creative laziness which I just happened to find out leaves me with a very small disappointment cause actually (at least from my perspective) both concepts do have nothing in common.
The new addition of Spa Esprit on Dempsey Hill aims at designer food that supports the organic and healthy lifestyle crowd. The concept of the setting in a lush green garden with lots of ‘community enabling” features such as Farmers Market and Playground around the restaurant is truly unique.
The restaurant itself is set in a beautiful glass house including open show kitchen (here we go, thats the people watching). Ambience & service is actually quite good and invites for a brunch/lunch or dinner with your better half or best friend.
Even those who usually don’t take pics of your food you will have an urge to capture the beautifully designed plates full of colour & taste. A true find not only for the photographers among us but also who like to enjoy eating it.
Venue, Food and Service top, nevertheless I was a little bit disappointed on the amount of money we had to pay in return for the amount of food we saw on the plate. Well, even that doesn’t prevent me from recommending the place to friends who would like to spend some special time in a special venue. And who knows who works in the open kitchen in the future.
