Healthy Singapore: Beetroot burger at Real Food

Real Food is, as the owners put it, that “little organic cafe” underneath Clarke Quay mall that serves good, ethical and healthy food, so I went over to have dinner during my business trip in Singapore.

The menu has all-day breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, pastas, pizzas, rice, noodles, soups and snacks — plenty to choose from — but I was craving for a burger that day. I ended up ordering the beetroot burger (S$12.80) with a glass of carrot, ginger and pineapple juice (S$6).

“Bleh.”

The beetroot burger was underwhelming, with a bland bun and sloppy patty made with beetroot, onion, zucchini, carrot and millet. There was also tomato sauce but the final result was quite bland. I think I was craving for a beetroot burger like VeggieSF‘s but this didn’t even come close.

Got foam?

As for the juice, I was surprised at how small the glass was. Yes it was pressed out of a slow juicer, but still quite expensive for what it is.

All in all, I was not too impressed with Real Food, but might return another time to try their all-day brekkie — apparently the apple wedges with eggy toast is supposed to be good.
