With the opening of PasarBella Suntec City, gourmet food enthusiasts can save a trip to Turf City. For those who are not familiar with the brand, PasarBella is well known for its captivating vibes and myriad of epicurean offerings. I found the outlet located at The Grandstand Bukit Timah rather difficult to get to as I don’t drive, hence I’m stoked that the second venue’s location is conveniently accessible.
For PasarBella’s Suntec’s grand opening, we were given the opportunity to try all 14 niche food and beverage concepts (my stomach only managed to down a little more than half the offerings though). Here, the décor emulates the vibes of Lower East New York City streets, complete with graffitied walls and vibrant furniture. Please pardon my photos, it was so crowded hence tough to move around to get the best shot of the stores.
The stores at ParsaBella Suntec are broadly grouped into 4 categories (situated randomly though), namely, Fresh food to-go, Burgers & Meats, Asian Delights, Coffees, Juices Yogurts, & more.
Fresh Food To-Go
Customize or “pimp” your greens at Pimp My Salad, or experience a taste of Israel with Pita & Olives, a Mediterranean-styled bistro that serves freshly baked Pita bread as well as homemade hummus, kebabs, falafel, mini schnitzel and grilled eggplant. Alternatively, lunch on Pork Belly and house made Pastrami sandwiches from Porsena Deli or indulge in a seafood feast with Louisiana seafood truck, Cajun On Wheels
Loving this mess tin of Mixed Seafood with Sweet Potato Fries doused in thick and creamy salted egg yolk sauce with a kick of heat. Click here for my detailed review on Cajun On Wheels.
Burgers and Meats
If you like hearty meals, go for Wolf Burger, opened by the people behind Carvers and Co. We tried the Wolf Burger (freshly ground secret beef patty with sharp cheddar and sweet onions) and Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger spruced up with salted egg mayo and homemade slaw. Both were both excellent, but if I had to choose a favorite, I’d go for the latter, since it’s unique and I adore salted egg yolk-anything. The accompanying piquant Kimchi fries were fab too. Don’t forget to grab one of their milkshakes (Horlicks Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Rose) for the ultimate enjoyment. Price point is wallet-friendly. Burgers start from $9.90, fries from $4 and milkshakes at $6.
Feeling carnivorous? Head for Mad Dogs Grill, where fine cuts of specially imported proteins are cooked according to your preference upon ordering.
Relish in Rollie Olie’s Asian fusion food, with a touch of California style. The freshest ingredients are rolled into made-to-order sushi or displayed atop rice in chirashi bowls which comes with a choice of yuzu, wasabi, srirascha, sesame and or Korean chilli
For a taste of authentic Vietnamese, go for An An, where Pho Spring Rolls and Salad are prepped by a veteran chef with 25 years of experience under his belt.
Fans of the grill can take comfort with the skewers at Grillo, a newly launched concept which takes a modern approach to street food. We tried the Truffle Short Rib Bowl and Yuzu Salmon Bowl and they were absolutely delectable. I plan return to
Get your Korean Fried Chicken fix at Choo Choo Chicken, well-known for their addictive fried chicken in 5 different flavors (crispy, sweet, soy, spicy, garlic) and rice burgers.
Coffee, Juices, Yogurts and More
Squeezed makes healthy living easier with their range of cold-pressed juices, packed with nutrients and vitamins. Squeezed also offers frozen yogurts sandwiched between hot toasty brioche buns or served atop waffle baskets.
Wash down your gourmet meal with beverages from DRINKS! (I highly recommend Passion Fruit Lavender Lemonade). Caffeine addicts, head over to Sarnies to get your dose of life.
There’s a store for everyone at PasarBella Suntec, making it perfect choice when dining in groups. No more arguing about what to eat since everyone will be able to have something they fancy!
In addition to food, one can indulge in some retail therapy at PasarBella, which house GIFTED, a boutique that carries carefully curated selection of jewelry and gifts, ranging from handcrafted, eco-conscious, artisanal and modern designs.
Many thanks to Tessa, Bless Inc Asia Pte Ltd and PasarBella for the invite.
