Toss & Turn @ Ion Orchard

Before an extensive 4k walk to church, I wanted to pack some healthy food for dinner and was craving for a good sandwich and salad. Having passed by this place a couple of time, I decide to try Toss & Turn, a soup and salad bar by Cedele.

Packed in a designer style wrapper, the combo was a mixed grain loaf with chicken avocado and with a side salad.  One bite and you get the flavours from the roasted chicken and the freshness of the vegetables. The avocado had a slight sweetness to it and the good thing about it was that it was slightly mashed and not too chunky on the mouth. 

On the other hand, the salad was piled with lots of goodness; edamame beans, purple and green lettuce, carrots and croutons. The plus to it was the free flow sunflower seeds and pomegranate dressing that I could add to my salad from their counter. The pairing of the sweet and light dressing with the sunflower seeds and the croutons added a nice dimension and texture to the crunchiness of the salad. If you think that pomegranate dressing is too wild for your taste bud, the counter also serves other types of dressings, like the usual Caesar, Thousand Island to the fruity or less heavy kind for the salad.

I was surprised that the portion of the food left me feeling quite full from the hearty meal! Judging by the stream of people that visit this outlet from office people to school going students, it seems to hit the right notes to appeal to people to eat their greens. I even went back a second time to try to create my own salad to take-away.

However, their service was a let down as I was kept waiting at the cashier while the staff was busy minding other customers and errands. While the regular salad portion was huge, their food prices is a bit steep ($9 for a regular bowl, $7.80 for half a bowl) just for greens and I think having it too many times seems like high maintenance? Maybe I’ll stick to buying fresh veggies from the supermarket and tossing them myself.

The Merry Bird (Seasonal Special)

Orange wholemeal bread | Turkey Ham | Rocket | Cheese | Onion| Cranberry Sauce | Entrée of Roasted Potatoes

This is one of the best kept secrets that not many people know about and only those in this university would.

Breadyard serves simple fare such as sandwiches, bread and bakes. They have four types of bread used in their sandwiches that are not your typical choices found elsewhere (Multi-seed, Olive, Hokkaido Milk, Italian Wholemeal). Plus, it is easy on the wallet!

Something interesting about the small bakery is that you can take a peek into a little corner reserved for the fermentation of their bread dough. The people behind this place do want to share in their joy of creating fresh bread!

If you visit this place, you might want to consider buying one of their home-made bread to take home!

Here is a short clip by them!

Don’t you want to make some bread after watching it? (:
