You wouldn’t usually expect a green oasis at the heart of the city, but Open Farm Community, nestled in the verdant surroundings of Dempsey Hill, will change that perception. A revolutionary collaboration between the Spa Esprit Group, Head Chef Oliver Truesdale Jutras, Souschef Phoebe Oviedo and award-winning food garden specialists, Edible Garden City, Open Farm Community is an urban farmland, horticultural hub, and restaurant all packed into one. At the heart of it all is one simple philosophy: to provide Singaporeans with a space to reconnect with nature whilst educating the young and old about local farming and the food we eat. The sprawling outdoor space features a garden brimming with herbs and vegetable produce, as well as educational breakout spaces alongside lawn bowling lanes and table tennis tables. True to their goal of educating city dwellers about the food we eat, tours of the vegetable and fruit orchards, talks, and gardening workshops are available too. The centrepiece is the gorgeous restaurant, a building with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a high ceiling, the perfect place to unwind and tuck into some simple and honest fare.The kitchen here adopts a strict no-no policy towards processed ingredients, imported produced, and unsustainable farming practices. This means that ingredients used here are mostly locally-sourced and always fresh - even the pasta is made fresh in-house! The menu is also one striking example of Open Farm Community’s dedication to serving honest food, with lengthy names laying out the different ingredients used in each dish. The flavours here are simple yet robust, focused around local farms and heritage, as epitomized by the Laksa Pappardelle, featuring soft shell prawn tempura, a spicy coconut based sauce and fresh laksa leaves from the garden; or the light and fresh watermelon salad, replete with lime and mint to balance the housemade ricotta from local Hay Dairies goat milk. A highlight was the Barramundi, straight from the waters off Pulau Ubin, combined with a sumptuous seaweed butter and organic dou miao, with puffed black rice crumbled over for a textural contrast.Now, whether you’re looking for romantic date spot, or a place where the kids can have some fun, Open Farm Community definitely provides an unforgettable experience for all.

Re: S Pass Rejected and Appeal 2020

Yes. But I have a reason to do it, they are agent chosen by the employer. For me, there is no issue to wait, but the hiring company cannot assure me that they will still get me by the time my pass is approved because they started to hire my last November and upto now my pass was not approved .....
