Squash – Healthy Cleansing Dinner [MEDIA INVITE]

Squash - Juice Salad Wrap

Squash, a healthy joint located in the basement of The Central Clarke Quay. To be exact, beside Watson. If you might think Squash is a juice bar, you are not wrong. Squash offered a complete healthy lifestyle which include cold press juice, salads and wraps.

Squash juice are fresh Cold Press juice and crafted by the mixologist to create a functional and nutritional juice. Cold press is a way to extract the best liquid, pulp and nutrient from fruits and vegetables without exposing it with heat from the blender. With the rave of liquid detox recently, you can do the same with the juice here and create you personalise detox program. Price started from $6.90 to $9.90, they are reflective base on the fresh ingredients use.

Squash - Juice

I tried Hydrate (Coconut water, Cucumber, Watermelon and Kalamansi), Berrylicious Antioxidant (Apple, Pear, Mix Berries and Promegranate) and Tropical Sunrise (Banana, Orange and Strawberry). Hydrate is refreshing and packed with liquid. It is not sweet and easy on the palate. Berrylicious and Tropical Sunrise are thicker in texture, and you can feel the fibre from the banana, orange and berries. Delicious and it does feel healthy.


Squash Salad - Salad Pasta

To accompany the juice, Squash also offer a salad bar which contains more than 30+ toppings and healthy version of the dressings. The salad base starts at $5.90 with a choice of 2 standard toppings and 1 dressing. Our first try of salad is Salad pasta. Using spiral pasta as a base, the berries dressing is just wonderful. Something unique and not commonly found.

Squash Salad - Ultimate Rojak Salad

Next come the Ultimate Rojak Salad. It is a modern interpretation by Squash for Singapore Favourite Rojak. The key ingredients here are the caramelised pineapple and dried cuttle fish. Squash even throw in the mini cut You Tiao to add to the authenticity. It is nice, light and not spicy. The dried cuttle fish also has a more refine, not overpowering stinky taste.

Squash Salad - Spicy Thai Prawn Salad

For more exotic toppings (add $2), you can have prawns, smoked salmon, pork bulgogi or buratta cheese. We tried the Spicy Thai Prawn Salad and Pork Bulgogi. The prawns are fresh but not as spicy as Thai version of raw salad. The pork bulgogi are delicious, although slightly chewy because of the cut of the meat.

One thing I like to mention here, there is no fix mixture of the salad. You are welcome to mix and match and come out with your creation.

If salad is not your thing, maybe you can consider wraps. We tried smoked Salmon and Roast Beef. Using whole wheat wrap, remind me of eating Souvlaki or Turkish Wrap. It tasted crisp, fresh and tasty. Of course the ingredients here are more refine, yet compare to Turkish wrap. My preference is the beef rather than the salmon.

With Chinese New Year around the corner and you are looking for a different version of Yu Sheng, you can order from Squash. They used healthy nuts, dried fruits and mix berries dressing as the toppings. Price starting from $28. I personally like the unique mix berries dressing.
