Rosemary Breadsticks, with a choice of their mustard or blueberry sauce for dipping purposes. If you're vegan, you will have to go with the blueberry, as the mustard contains dairy. The breadsticks were softer than I imagined, and didn't have as much rosemary as I was hoping for. Dipping into the blueberry was interesting, and reminded me of my childhood jam sandwiches in England. The blueberry dip is actually very mild, some might find it is too bland.
Mushroom & Pea Pottage. This soup actually consists of three different types of mushroom (button, shitake and king oyster), which are cooked and blended together with sweet peas. Placed on top is a piece of sliced bread and two pieces of capsicum. The soup didn't really capture the different flavours of mushroom inside, and the pea flavour was quite minimal as well, I didn't detect any sweetness. With all that being said, I really like the concept of pea and mushroom soup, and if the flavours could be intensified then I would adore this dish.
Baked Potato Al Funghi looked like a work of art on the plate. It is true we eat with our eyes, and my eyes were very happy. The baked potato was cooked very well, with a chewy and slightly crisp outer skin, matched with fluffy inner potato. The mushrooms couldn't have looked better, and the taste was splendid too.
Spaghetti Pesto. I've always been a big fan of pesto sauce, I love the earthy and herb flavour that it has, and I was very pleased to find that this sauce was vegan. Overall this was probably the best dish of the entire meal . The spaghetti was very well cooked, and the ingredients tangled amongst the spaghetti were cooked perfectly. The pesto sauce was smooth and really succeeded in bringing out the superb natural flavour of the basil. Large portion size, too.
The Very Berry and for dessert I picked out Osmanthus Flower Jelly. Desserts are a little tough for vegans, with the jelly being the only dessert suitable for the vegan diet. The jelly was sweet and captured the flower essence well. The juice was fine enough, but fresh juice always appeals to me more.
Conclusion - The staff at Sufood are remarkably trained (they were actually sent to Taiwan for two months to undergo training), and the restaurant in general is immaculately run. I must say that only a couple of dishes impressed me on the set meal, but I still consider it worth of the $25++ price tag. It will be interesting to see if Sufood can take over Singapore, judging by their early popularity, I would say their is a good chance they can.
