Food is never just food. What we eat affects how the world looks. That affects the way we understand it. When we look at a plate of food, we should see the greater ecosystem too. Food can be about responsibility, sustainability, geography and culture. -Olafur Eliasson writing about Noma
Should we say that Executive Chef Fernando Arevalo suscribes to the same philosophy. Fancy having a nice lunch amidst greenery but not leave the convenience of the city. The set lunch at Artemis Grill is certainly a place for celebration with healthy organic eating, all produce sourced locally and not from feed lots.
There were 4 of us so we each had a 2 course lunch, each pair ordering a starter and a main or a main and dessert. We tried:
Duck confit with fig and mint/dare dressing. The duck was crispy and the mint sauce added a different dimension. (Personally I don’t like the sous vide duck confit so this version fits my preference. )
I like the grilled octopus with yogurt dressing and long beans.
For the mains we had grass -fed beef. Portions are quite sufficient and delicious.
Or seabass. I much prefer the beef. You’ve a choice of 3 types including organic chicken. For the beef and seabass there’s an additional $12.
Such pretty dessert. Rum and raisin ice cream or panna cotta with sorbet. What a beautiful explosion of colors.
But do arrive early to take a good look around the greenery. The sunlight makes me feel relaxed and happy.
I can spot the super trees!
Lovely roof-top garden. Very cool although the landscaping is non-exciting by Singapore standards. It’s lush. We don’t spot anyone relaxing with a coffee? I know it’s office hours but can’t I take a 5 min breather in between staring at the computer screen?
Take a stay-cation this June. Save on hotel and airfare instead. There’re so many refreshing new outlets in Singapore.
