Roots Kitchen Bar

With the opening of the Rochor MRT station late last year, this hidden gem – Roots Kitchen Bar, serving fine European food at casual prices (without service charge and GST) is made more accessible to us!

Other than brunch, Roots Kitchen Bar serves lunch and dinner and welcomes booking for events. The chicrustic vibes of the café makes one feel at home.

Egg & truffle mousse with caviar ($4) – soft creamy but savoury mousse with a distinct truffle aroma that overpowers the caviar taste! Truffle fanatics should not miss this deal!

Looks could be deceiving, this may be simple looking but what lies within is the bomb!

Seasonal Roots Rice ($18) – Risotto with seasonal roots and pine nuts. This risotto differs from the usuals such as the squid ink, mushroom in terms of appearance and taste. The dish was visually appealing with striking purple color with shades of orange and green from the crunchy roots (carrots & pine nuts) Taste-wise, the risotto was rich without being heavy with al dente rice but we would prefer a more creamy consistency.

Ocean Crab Pasta – Angel hair pasta with mee-sua like texture. This was doused in a robust crabmeat and lobster bisque but we wished for more meat and chunkier meat!

Roots Kitchen Bar 7

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries ($15) – Look at the layer of cheese tossed and baked over the fries. It We delved into a plethora of flavours when eating this – gooey crumble feta, mushy sweet potato, smoked bbq pull pork and spicy sensation from the jalapeno! A definite MUST-TRY here!

Citron & passion ($13) – Lemon and passion fruit curd with marsh mellow cookie ice cream. We loved how the tanginess of the lemon balances out the sweetness of this dessert.
