Garde Manger - A Healthy Stop!

Written By clapalisoc on Friday 19 August 2016 | 10:21

Hole in the Wall has a lot of treasures inside. From the most umami-licious fried chicken to the simplest but juiciest burgers, freshly made pizza, freshly baked treats, their food concepts are truly one of a kind!

Aside from the calorie packed meals offered by this food court, they also have this stall that offers everything fresh and healthy! It was my choice for dinner on a weekend - Garde Manger!

Salad options!

Feeling healthy, I pushed for a bowl of salad for dinner with nothing but a glass of water as my drink. Since I've heard a lot of buzz about Garde Manger, I opted to give it a shot.

Garde Manager is another food venture from Tasteless Group headed by Chef Miko Aspiras of Le Petit Souffle and Scout's Honor. This stall offers all things fresh! From salad to drinks - everything is made from fresh veggies and fruits!

I tried their Korean Octopus Salad.

The serving was filling but I wish there was something more in it to give it some other texture. I got tired munching and munching! The bowl had a crunchy mix of crisp lettuce and red cabbage chopped into strips, carrots, bean sprouts, black and white sesame seeds and spring onions. They also added some orzo, which is a soft pasta that looks like rice grains but bigger, which absorbed the Korean dressing Gochujang.

The dressing was a little spicy but it was savory and had bold flavors. It went really well with the tender chunks of octopus. A drizzle of fresh lemon made this salad bowl more interesting. The citrus kick added a lighter note to the rather heavy dressing.

Quite interested to try their fresh juices and their Sisig Salad next time.

4 out of 5 Stars for Garde Manger!
