All natural, healthy and delicious dining and shopping is now made even more accessible with the opening of Little Farms Serangoon Garden!
Little Farms Serangoon Garden
Well known for a carefully curated selection of high-quality, all-natural and ethically sourced produce, local speciality grocer Little Farms has now made its debut in the north-east with its newest store at MyVillage shopping mall.
Like all its other outlets across the island, Little Farms Serangoon Garden promises all the goodness that the brand is loved for, in the heart of one of Singapore’s liveliest neighbourhoods.
Here's taking a closer look at what you can expect at Little Farms' latest outlet at Serangoon Garden:
Little Farms Bar + Grill
The cosy, al fresco urban farm-style bar and grill boasts a charming space with an open kitchen concept where guests can watch the passionate chefs in action. It serves a delightful grill-focused menu that includes all-natural, gluten-free, and dairy-free ingredients, which may also be purchased at the grocery. The unique in-store edible wall provides the freshest greens for dishes.
A selection of brunch dishes is available until 2pm and includes a delicious Shakshuka ($20), made with coddled eggs in a simmering mixture of heirloom tomatoes and avocado topped with feta cheese, which gives the dish a velvety texture. It is served alongside beautifully toasted sourdough slices to scoop up every bit of that rich sauce.
Classic brunch dishes include the Bolognese ($24) made with lumaconi (a large snail shellshaped pasta) which cradles the pork and beef ragu sauce that has been cooked over two days, and completed with freshly grated parmigiano reggiano. The Miso Mushroom Fusolini ($22) is another alluring dish comprising of pearl oyster and portobello mushrooms drenched in savoury umami miso butter, and topped with pecorino. Gluten-free pasta is available upon request.
Not to be missed is the Farmers Bowl ($21) – a deconstructed burrito assembled with brown rice, salad (from the indoor herb wall), beans, and avocado. Diners may choose between organic chicken, buckwheat tempeh from Angie’s Tempeh, or salmon for their protein.
Other options include the Wholemeal Hotcake ($22), Free-range Slow-fired Pork Rack ($28), and O’Connor Rump Steak & Eggs ($26).
Big Plates from the Charcoal Grill
Perfect for sharing are the Roaring Forties Lamb Cutlets ($36), which is marinated with yoghurt, cooked with curry leaves and tandoori spices for a spicy kick, and finished off on the grill with applewood charcoal, and served with a refreshing Mango Chimichurri.
Another highly recommended pick is the Whole Basket Grilled Snapper ($38), Little Farms’ take on the local favourite dish of Sambal Stingray, where a whole fish is butterflied, marinated with sambal then low-grilled to crispy perfection. It comes with a Thai chilli sauce and some calamansi that perfectly accentuate the smoky flavours of the dish.
Communal eating is the focus, and these big plates are best eaten alongside a selection of small plates and sides. Try the Battered Plant-Based Calamari ($16); made with konjac jelly and served with sriracha mayo, Dirty Rice ($8) cooked in sofritos consisting of capsicum, onion, garlic, coriander, and sazón (mixed spiced herbs), and Serangoon Slaw ($8), which sees purple cabbage tossed in peanut butter, orange juice, and cashews for a refreshing palate cleanser between dishes.
For a gratifying end to the meal, opt for the indulgent Chendol Sundae ($12) that has a touch of local flair.
For one of the most important groups of people in the world, the menu also has smaller portions of brunch (until 2pm) for the little ones. Pick from Juniors Avo Toast ($14), Wholesome Hotcake ($12), and Bambinos Brekkie ($16). Both the Kids Bolognese Penne ($14) and Kids Garlic Prawn Mac & Cheese ($18) are available for lunch and dinner, so make it a fun day out with the family.
There is also an outstanding line-up of tipples, draught beer, gin & tonics, and frozen margaritas ($16 per glass/ $50 per jug) such as the Lime and Passionfruit margarita, which was conceptualised by the Director of Food & Beverage, William Leonard.
Diners may opt to start the day with a comforting coffee or a super latte such as the Golden Turmeric Latte ($7.50). Little Farms has enlisted the help of plant-based content creator Sandra Lim (@theveggiemaiden) to create a line-up of wholesome smoothies ($15) such as Beets by Dre and James Green.
Little Farms Grocery Store
Little Farms sources 80% of its cheeses from countries such as Australia, Greece, and France. This includes the seasonal Rogue Creamery’s Rogue River Blue, which was crowned the World’s Best cheese in 2019 and 2020. The cheese is wrapped in leaves that were soaked in rum to create the cheese’s fudgy and rich texture with a pronounced ‘blue’ flavour, and it is only produced in May and June every year.
Knowledgeable staff are always on hand to recommend the best charcuterie for cheese platters, such as Prosciutto di Parma, Corsican pepper ham, and Bayonne ham. Customers can even request a custom cheese platter based on budget and preference.
Little Farms imports a wide range of fresh and seasonal produce from various regions, including Australia, France, the UK and Spain. Flown in three times a week, the upcoming end-of-year harvest will be the best season for stone fruits from Queensland, Australia, and the perfect time to enjoy nectarines, peaches, and plums.
Meats & Seafood
Little Farms offers sausages that are handmade on-site with natural ingredients and spices, as well as marinated meats that make meal prep a breeze.
