Legend has it that Eve didn’t pluck an apple from the tree of knowledge, share it with Adam and let loose a Pandora’s box of evil upon the world, but that she actually committed the rather righteous act of heading up to Holland Village’s Original Sin, with her Edenic partner in tow, to order up a smorgasbord of divine Mediterranean food, unleashing instead a culinary voyage of Odyssean proportions. This fruitful Mediterranean restaurant tucked down Jalan Merah Saga at Chip Bee Gardens is all about guilt-free, healthy dining with dishes made from ethically-sourced ingredients, putting the good back into Singapore’s crowded restaurant scene.
One way into Original Sin’s Mediterranean restaurant paradise, besides booking your table and checking your coat at the door to their Holland Village premises down Jalan Merah Saga, is to opt for the set lunch menu. This introduction to light and airy, colourful and healthy Mediterranean cuisine in one of Singapore’s certifiable dining hotspots starts with the soup of the day or a green salad, moves into Mediterranean tortilla wraps with chickpea and pumpkin spread, grilled eggplant, feta and salad, veggie burgers made with brown rice and chickpea patties or Italian spaghetti with zucchini, olives and cherry tomatoes tossed in a tomato and basil sauce and topped with parmesan. Finish with warm chocolate cake and, holy Maria, you’ve just indulged in one of the city’s freshest and best vegetarian meals.
Original Sin’s a la carte menu takes in cuisines from all the nations that encircle the Mediterranean, bringing peerless colour and flavour to Singapore’s Holland Village community of restaurants . Choose a starter like the classic pomodoro, go Middle Eastern with the sublime mezze platter for two, or get really divine with the magic mushrooms! Main courses follow the same pan-Mediterranean pattern: Italian pizza, lasagna and strozzapreti (strangled priest) pasta, Greek moussaka and spanakopita, and more. There’s even vegetable tandoori and Kashmir-style pizza – not a crime against nature by any means!
Average food. It felt like a bad meal at an aunty's house. Stodgy and no flavour. Ok setting. It's a little bit run down and for the amount you pay, you would expect it to have far more ambiance. WAY OVERPRICED! Service was ok.
We booked a table inside but got one outside. Food is good but service is very poor. Would think twice before going again to original sin
