Toast
#02-11, Ngee Ann City
6733 8489

Don't be mistaken, I did not go to Toast Box but Toast, a cafe by The Marmalade Group. Hui Yi, Wen Yi and I actually searched for this place last year but it was not open for dinner. This time, we came for a late lunch instead.

As usual, I had difficulty deciding on what to order as there were many interesting items on the menu that I wanted to try. In the end, I settled on the Grilled Vegetable Wrap ($7.50) which had grilled eggplant, butternut and red peppers with hummus on wholewheat tortilla wrap. The toasted wrap was good but could have been better with more generous fillings.

Hui Yi polished off her Oven-roasted Chicken Breast Wrap ($7.70), with wood roasted peppers and emmental cheese in a wholemeal tortilla wrap, very quickly!

The Tuna Sambal ($6.80) with dried shrimp and rocket on panini was an interesting choice but Wen Yi didn't like it.

Hidden in a corner outside the shopping centre, this may be a little hard to find. I think it caters more to the working adults for lunch as the choices were rather limited when we were there in the late afternoon. This is a good alternative place to have a sandwich or a slice of cake without burning the pocket.

WELCOME!

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
