Patitsion and Baklava at Supergreek Orchard Central.
Right, my first “revamped” Geeky Restaurant Adventures post for this year. Oh, wait a minute, as I mentioned in my 2021 blog direction post, it’s now just “dining adventures.”
As for background stories, bear with me, I went right before catching A Promised Neverland at GV Plaza. Truth be told too, I had no idea there was a café serving modern Greek cuisine at Orchard Central. Not till I saw an advert for it nearby sometime in December.
The big Greek mythology I am, I decided right away I must check it out. It’s also been years since I had a proper Greek meal. That doubly made a visit a must for me.
“Street-side” Greek Café, Within a Mall
Orchard Central is, err, long renowned for its rather compartmentalized layout. This café itself is at a corner of the fourth floor, right opposite +Serv.
It also shares its ordering counter and kitchen with Omakase Burger. There being no big sign for Supergreek beside the ordering counter means you have to keep an eye out for the branded menus, if you’ve never been there before.
Modern Greek Cooking
This was steaming hot and filling, without the beef or cheese being too heavy.
There was also a slight nutty taste. (It tasted like Cardamon to me)
It was overall a little too light in taste for me, though, despite a rich later of Feta cheese. The accompanying salad was also quite decisively un-Greek, with its Sesame dressing. Not that I dislike Sesame sauce, but there was too much of an East-West fusion thingy going on there.
My dessert looks messy, doesn’t it? But it was great.
Full of honey, nutty, and in all, not excessively sweet.
I’d say I enjoyed this more than the main course too. It was also while savouring my final mouthfuls that I had a, erm, Mediterranean moment too. I was in an air-conditioned SG shopping mall and all that, but it briefly felt like a lively street in the Cyclades.
Supergreek Orchard Central is at #04-22 Orchard Central. Here’s the link to their page.
