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!
An old favourite of mine for lunches and dinners. Very pleasant congenial environment with nice decor. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. The food is always well presented and tasty. It is always a good experience!
Nice and quiet ambience all set for one to savour Mediterranean healthy food. Though the place is near to Holland village mrt and shopping mall, yet its far away from the hustle bustle .The menu offers varied healthy options with adequate portion size.
I do understand that they need their table back at 8pm due to the "crowd" they are expecting. We were informed beforehand. But was shocked when their waitress decided to clear our plate, with food, without asking whether we are done at 745pm? How rude. Really spoilt your dining experience. Their were other customer that arrived earlier than us still around. And the place was really empty at that time.
I liked the food (beverages are standard for a fine restaurant nothing outstanding) and ambience however my rating excludes the consideration of cost which I found expensive for a vegetarian restaurant honestly. With price I will give a rating of 3. Thanks
Reservation all set, great Chef willing to accommodate special requests, excellent that became very good because of so so service. I am not sure the so so service was intentional, more just amateurish. At these prices, one should not expect a trainee.
Superb food. The Penna Pasta is awesome as is the Halloumi starter. We went for the Free Flow WIne with 3 Course Set Dinner. 2pax $209. Can't arugue with that! Will be going again soon!
Very nice ambience and food was really good.Service is really fast and the place is ideal for business conversations and meetings. Kindly include vegetarian cheese as well then it would be easier for vegetarians to try out some of the dishes
Really good food, full of flavour. Just wished that I knew it was a vegetarian restaurant as there's no mention of it. Service could be a bit better though. The noise level gets a bit high if you're sitting inside.
Food is excellent and fresh. Normally vegetarians who love cuisine have very limited choice on the menu card but this place is really good. Just wish serving can be made a bit quicker.
The menu was amazing - lots of great sounding options. However, the service was poor - polite but slow to the point where it felt like they were understaffed. The food itself was average - but when you consider how pricey it is, I would not be back frequently.
