|Greendot @ Paya Lebar Square|
Greendot was born to introduce delicious green meal to the market. With the hope of making people improving their personal health through one delicious green meal at a time. Please note the keywords here: Delicious & Healthy.
|Customised Bento Station|
Other than fresh vegetables, there are three key ingredients use at Greendot: Konnyaku, Soybean and Lion's Mane Mushroom. Konnyaku are known to be good for cleansing and weight loss. Best of all there is almost no calories in konnyaku. Soybean packs with proteins that help in growth and repair of human body tissue. Lion's Mane Mushroom helps with immune system and memory. Best part, when its cook, it has the texture of shrimp or lobster.
|Signature Lion Mane Mushroom Rendang Rice Bowl|
Signature Lion Mane Mushroom Rendang Rice Bowl ($9.50). Sesame flavoured rice, topped with vegetables and Lion Mane Mushroom Rendang. The rice is fragrant and tasty, similar to chicken rice flavour. The lion mane 'meat' is springy and absorbs the sauce well. Rendang sauce was thick and pack of punch, definitely open up your appetite. Actually if you mixed all the ingredients together, it will look like Indonesian style bibimbap. A must try dish here.
For noodles - we get to sample Singapore perennial favourite Laksa ($5.90) and Herbal Noodle ($7.90). The laksa broth is milky, robust and aromatic, with a very subtle level of spiciness. The toppings include konnyaku prawn, konnyaku slice, tau pok and bean sprouts to accompany the laksa rice noodle. The taste and texture of the Laksa does not lose out to the original Laksa. Meanwhile the herbal noodle has a clear soup infused with herbal flavours, good for someone who likes clear broth or looking for a light meal. I personally prefer the laksa as it has more punch.
Western food lovers, are accommodated as well with the list of burger selections. We tried Lion Mane Mushroom Burger Set ($11.80). Of course I will not tell you this burger tasted like beef burger. Instead this burger has its own unique characteristic. The flavourful Lion Mane patties provide a good texture and bite of a burger. The black pepper sauce provide additional kick with the mushroom give the juiciness in the burger. Fries was thick, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. Yum Yum.
|Mini Hot Pot Set for 2|
Steamboat lovers, you can try Mini Hot Pot Set. ($29.90 for set for 2 pax; $59.90 for set of 4 pax). We had set of 4 pax and we basically was flabbergasted with the size. You can choose two soup base from herbal, tom yum and laksa. The hotpot will consist of 3 type of mushrooms (shiitake, enoki and shimeji), tau kee, konnyaku prawns and vegetables. There is also side dishes, brown rice and a pot of tea.
|Mini Hot Pot Set for 4. For this tasting session, we got Five Treasure Rice, Emperor Rice, Sesame rice & Brown Rice|
|Laksa Broth Hot Pot|
The herbal broth uses the same broth as the herbal noodle, the taste and flavour was uplifted with the mushrooms and the vegetable. Like other hotpot, the broth can be top up regularly FOC.
Dessert - Osmanthus Jelly ($3.50). The tasty and healthy desserts has been gaining popularity recently. The portion here is almost soup bowl size, springy and refreshing. A good end to a delicious green meal.
Other than food, Greendot also provide extensive range of drinks, starting from their cold brew tea, honey tea, fresh fruit tea, yogurt fruit shake, soy latte and frappe. So they are not just know for their healthy food, but also for their healthy drinks.
|Passion Dragon Fruit Green Tea (tasting size)|
|Cold Brew Alisan Oolong tea|
The restaurant has an open kitchen concept, accompanied with simple, clean light wooden colour contemporary look for the dining area. There are two seating area; inside the restaurant and in the open space located in the middle of the Paya Lebar Square.
Overall, I really enjoy the food at Greendot. I like their originality and their concept. The foods are healthy and delicious, the price is reasonable, so what else can you ask for. Kudos to them Cheers!!
