Spa Esprit Group’s latest project (they’re the folks behind Skinny Pizza, Common Man et al), Open Farm Community will be a joy to mamas’ hearts – this huge, airy, light-filled Dempsey restaurant has a farm-to-table eating philosophy, a fabulously healthy menu and a great outdoor play space for the kiddos to wear themselves out while they wait for their food to arrive. A collaboration with celeb chef Ryan Clift and the folks at Edible Gardens, you know this is going to be something special!
We popped by to check it out immediately after they opened their doors and were seriously impressed. Watch out PS Café, Open Farm Community is coming for your crown! Not only can you have a sit-down meal, but you can also grab a pastry (made by Tiong Bahru Bakery), a takeaway coffee (from Common Man) and pick up some goodies for the little ones from their on-site store which stocks a selection of adorable backpacks, water bottles and snacks.
Our faves from the menu were the Warm Broccoli and Feta Cheese Salad and the Rump of Lamb with Mashed Potato, Garden Peas, Mint and Bacon. Hearty and satisfying, they were served in artisanal ceramic dishes brought in from Bali. The setting of the main dining room is stunning in the evening with an open kitchen so you can see the chefs at work, and gorgeous twinkly light features. The service was excellent, and the wine selection reasonable (by Singapore standards that is!).
We can’t wait to see this take off in a big way… Make your brunch reservations now, mama!
