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!
It was my first time at a vegetarian restaurant and the food was great. Really enjoyed the toufu burger. The pizza was a bit of a let down but overall, it was great! :)
Wonderful food, excellent service. We will be coming back to try other items off the menu, and to use some of the set meal and alcohol offers soon.
We had the moussakka, mushroom ravioli and home made ice lemon tea. Love the ravioli and ice lemon tea ~ not too sweet after adding the syrup provided and the sourness is just right for me. Service was on point as well.
Excellent vegetarian restaurant - lunch time not busy terrific desserts - tiramisu and warm chocolate cake Very good appetizers - try the garlic bread best we have eaten;
Must be the BEST VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT IN SINGAPORE. Try it. You will not be disappointed Amazing menu. Is it really all vegetarian ? Try the lasagne. A must
A really imaginative and delicious vegetarian restaurant. Both the dishes my husband and I had were excellent. The service was also very good. A lovely place to eat.
As a non-vegetarian I was surprised at the variety on the menu. I really enjoyed the meal. It was delicious and good value. The service was friendly and efficient. I will be back.
I didn't know vegetarian dishes can taste so good! Ingredients are fresh and very unique flavour. Love the fusion of eastern and western flavour. Love the restaurant's cosy ambience and friendly staff too.
This was our first time at this restaurant. We all enjoyed our dishes - especially the desserts - and the service was good. It was a pleasant evening and we enjoyed being outside.
Nice ambience, good food. Veggie food can be delicious too. Nice wine list, decent cocktails. A little pricy, set lunch should be better value. Nice to have on list of places to go.
