“Our vision is to bring to life, the impact of urban farming in Singapore, and in doing so, strengthen our understanding and respect for food and its origins. Our children, in particular, have been too segregated from nature. Open Farm Community is an ideological and physical reaction to this” – Cynthia Chua, Founder of Spa Esprit
Staying rooted in their vision, the ingredients used in Open Farm Community’s well-crafted menu is from local farmers. The team also incorporates many home-grown ingredients. Be sure to check out their Roasted Red Snapper, which incorporates their home-grown Roselle and hibiscus. This lightly seasoned fish complemented by zesty Roselle and hibiscus ketchup is bound to create an explosion of flavours in your mouth.
Another dish that caught our taste buds was the Banana Pandan custard. Apart from the beautiful plating, this dessert presents a refreshing combination of lemongrass sago and fragrant pandan, which makes an exquisite treat.
6. Refreshing concoctions
Open Farm Community’s well-crafted menu doesn’t stop at good food. It also extends to a unique selection of cocktails that are garden grown. Meticulously crafted with their homegrown herbs and fruits, it doesn’t get any fresher than this.
