Food Trip: Saffron

 photo 20140325_114503_zps0d88ad94.jpgEvery time am on my way to work, I pass by this new Mediterranean Restaurant by Tony Fox, Saffron . I believe they opened late last year and has become one of the favorite restaurants in District 1. photo 20140325_114513_zpsfa18a382.jpg

The terracotta-potted ceiling is pretty awesome but kinda scary for someone like me who always has to think about my kids’ safety. I can very well see my eldest son in my mind’s eye throw something up in the air just because.

While waiting for our orders, we were served freshly baked bread with  garlic, olive tapenade and hummus. photo 20140325_115119_zpsd541aa86.jpgFor starters, you can choose from Soup of the Day (which was carrot yesterday) and Greek / Caesar’s Salad. I chose the Caesar. Thumbs up for this one. The portion and taste were just right.

Um… there was the dessert which was Mango Mousse and a Chocolate Mousse (if I remember correctly)… but was quickly consumed so no photos for that. :D We paired it with coffee and peppermint tea. :)

Saffron is located right by Ciao Bella, another Tony Fox’s restaurant and the newly opened Starbucks’ fourth cafe.
