Far from their distant location of Grandstand, Pasarbella has opened their second gourmet food market at Suntec City. Conveniently located near Promenade MRT, this place lights up in the evening with a huge signboard that you just can’t miss. Across a sprawling 7000 sq ft, 15 gourmet stalls wait to serve you their best dishes. The decor is industrial-chic meets food-court with ample seating.
Since we scouted for vegetarian options, I am sharing the stalls in which I managed to find them conveniently.
Grillo is a Japanese Yakitori stall specializing in skewers along with their house-blended sauces. To begin with, I ordered the ‘Sweet Potato Fries’ as the starter. The fries were appropriately crunchy and salted and you can take a chilli dip as the side.
If you are looking for a delish bowl of rice, then this ‘Garlic Tofu Bowl’ fits the bill. First ensure that you like the ingredients and the taste of garlic is not overwhelming. The ‘Zucchini Skewers’ on top were crunchy and went with the soy-sauce drizzled rice. I would have liked a bit more veggies to balance the rice in the dish.
2. Pimp My Salad
I have a weakness for salad stalls brimming with fresh ingredients. ‘Pimp My Salad’ does not disappoint with its options. A neat ordering form is provided where you can mark your choices and customize your own salad. With glee, I filled the checklist and created my salad carefully choosing the ingredients. They also have their signature salads with interesting combinations.
If you are a fan of healthy eating and enjoy salads, I would highly recommend this bowl of goodness. Vegetarians and vegans, you can go crazy choosing your preferences. Look at my choice – Broccoli with Almond Flakes and Chilli, Baby Corn with Paprika, Pomegranate, Hummus, Garam Masala Chickpeas and Couscous with Raisins and Bell Peppers. And everything was rightly flavored and so tasty!
3. Pita and Olives
Next we hit the ‘Pita and Olives’ stall. It is a Mediterranean-style bistro dishing out hearty food in the form of pita bread, kebabs and falafels. Their food is not new to me as I have reviewed them earlier which can be read here . They have closed their outlet at Tanjong Pagar and moved to Suntec City and serve some tasty dishes. I particularly like their Falafels and generally order their platter which can be shared by 2 pax. Their Hummus and Salad are delicious!
If you like rice for lunch or dinner, then go for their Pilaf Set which is filling and take falafels on the side.
Instead of the usual savory items, ‘Sarnies@Suntec’ serves coffee, pastries, tea and milkshakes. They also have the non-dairy form of drinks. Along with this they are selling ‘Cocowhip’ which is a vegan soft serve from Australia. This ice cream is made from coconut water and there is a pronounced coconut taste when you dig into it. You can choose your sauce toppings to give it a variety in flavour and I chose Burnt Caramel Sauce which was damn good!
Last but not least, ‘Squeeezed’ serves some awesome fresh juices. An appropriate stall in this setting, especially with the Singapore weather. They serve cold-pressed juices packed with vitamins. I felt refreshed after drinking this juice.
For its central location, its variety of food stalls and decent lunch and dinner options, Pasarbella is worth visiting!
