Original Sin #1

I am going to rave because dinner was so lovely! Praga and I went to this Mediterranean vegetarian restaurant hidden along the stretch of road off Holland Village.
We started with an Avocado Salad ($16++).
Avocado, French beans, fresh beetroot, carrot, apple, cucumber mesclun and pine nuts are tossed with citrus mustard vinaigrette. I like the tangy dressing which complements the creamy but bland avocado very well.
The menu for mains is quite limited but I still took a rather long time to decide. All the items sound so interesting!
The Moussaka ($24++) is a vegetarian version of the lasagna. Layers of char-grilled eggplant, potato, tomato and lentils are baked and infused with Middle Eastern spices, topped with a white sauce.
I was confused by the mish mash of different flavors when I took the first bite but after awhile, the different bold and hearty flavors came through. It’s really quite amazing that something this messy can taste so good! Thankfully, the spices were not overwhelmingly strong and did not cover the natural flavors of the vegetables.
The Sicilian Pizza ($22++) was tasty too. Bocconcini (small unripened and mild cheese), mozzarella, parmesan, semi-dried tomato, Kalamata olives, caramelized onion are topped with arugula leaves. The thinness of the pizza dough was just nice and crispy enough.
Service was excellent as the waitress was very attentive. They even gave me a copy of their menu after Praga requested for it. The ambience was great too! The interior was candlelit with dim and soft lighting (not conducive for photo taking though).
I would definitely come back here again! Their creative and innovative menu makes me want to try everything.
