Mad For Garlic

Mad For Garlic is a first garlic-theme Italian restaurant originated from Korea. The first restaurant open its door in 2001, in Southern Seoul. Due to its unique and innovative garlic specialised menu, Mad For Garlic ('MFG') become one of the most popular Italian restaurants in Korea.

Mad For Garlic - Storefront 

MFG Suntec City is the first overseas restaurant outside Korea, which started its operation in 2010.
Went through the renovation and reopen with new décor in May 2013

We started with Sauteed Mussel ($31.50). There are two options of the sauce, tomato or garlic cream. Garlic cream sauce got our vote. The mussels are plump, juicy and succulent. The cream and mince garlic work wonders to accentuate the flavour of the mussels. We used the soft bread to soak up all the mussels goodness in the gravy and polished it off.

Roosevelt's Diner and Bar – New Brunch Menu [MEDIA INVITE]

Roosevelt's Diner and Bar

Roosevelt's Diner and Bar ('Roosevelt's') is a dining destination located behind the Dorsett Residence at H exit of Outram MRT. When you turn to face the diner, you will notice their eye catching logo of teddy bear smoking a cigar. This remind me of the movie TED, that featured the naughty R rated teddy bear.

Back to the food, Roosevelt's just revamped their brunch menu and we are here to give it a try. Currently brunch menu is available up to 6PM daily.

Roosevelt's - The Bar

We started with something light and healthy. Shiitake Sesame Salmon ($18). This salad bowl featured a healthy ingredients and super food. The plating is so attractive, made it difficult not to try it. The salmon was sous-vide, allowing it to retain the juice with moist and flaky texture. The tofu, mushroom, edamame and pomegranate contribute variety texture and flavour to the dish. While the sesame dressing bind all the ingredients and flavour together.
