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!
After hearing so much about this restaurant, I was expecting great things. I was disappointed when they said the pizza wasn't available as the oven had broken down. A couple of other items on the menu weren't there which was disappointing. We ordered the corn fritters which were very average. All in all, the food was quite forgettable but the prices weren't
The food was nice and tasted fresh. We had ordered the mezze platter, the pasta and the stuffed aubergine from the special. For the desserts, the lava cake was good. The only downer was the unclean toilet.
Original Sin did not have the booking at all...thankfully the restaurant was not crowded and we got a place. How can I rely on qua door with booking next time?
We order Bosco Misto, Moussaka, Supremo pizza, Wrap set, Chocolate Brownie and Tiramisu. Bosco Misto, Moussaka and Tiramisu are absolutely yummy. The brownie is a bit dry. And the waiters are very attentive to our needs.
Awesome workers and friendly. The waitress with specs was so friendly and warm. She recommeded the besf selection of food. Keep up the good work. Food was great but slightly on the high side for price.
The food for one of the guests was vegan as requested, so that was a great plus. The other food also was good. The restaurant's setting is nice. We could even park next to the place. The staff was friendly, but in the Asian hurry.
Good service and great food. The menu is being varied all the time. They have the option of vegan free, gluten free, and garlic free option to cater to everybody.
Great comfort food and great value with MyFave! We really enjoyed the mains! The portions are huge though so were were not able to finish it. Great service and ambiance.
The food is always consistently of a high standard. It feels indulgent and yet clean and healthy. The service also is always consistently high - waiters are friendly and helpful.
The standard of the restaurant had went down since I came the last time. They ran out of bread and pizza which makes up about half of the menu. That was disappointing. In addition to this, although the staff tried their best to accommodate and tend to our needs, there was an overall lack of service staff on the ground.
