Review of Sumo Salad (Holland Village, Singapore)
This branch is located in the Holland Vollage MRT station in Singapore. Mom and I were heading to Holland Village Food Center (hawker place) in the area and we were enticed to “stumble upon” Sumo Salad because of its inviting storefront design. It’s a typical standalone to-go restaurant (not the push-cart type) where busy people can just be refreshed seeing tons of healthy and freshest ingredients displayed in the counter.
Here customers can choose more than one viand. The server which happened to be a Filipino suggested us to not just stop at lettuce but layer the salad with more vegetables to make it to a power salad. Since we’re first-timers here, we asked her to pick the best for us. She added shredded carrots, celery, radishes, tomatoes, beets, cucumber, sprouts and peppers. Definitely our salad was infused with more color this time. 😛
What I love about it right off the bat is that their salads have everything going on: roasted vegetables, vinaigrette, warm and crispy garnish and some meat. Aside from salads, Sumo Salad offers a huge range of healthy food including wraps, rolls, toasties, pasta, soup, yoghurt, coffee and other tasty options to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters.
We had salads that came with a duet of varied greens sliced into fine ribbons that gave a nice crunch. Next, to pump it up with protein, aside from the fiber we got from eating these vegetables, we also had bits of chicken, hard-boiled eggs and salmon drizzled with olive oil for that extra booze of healthy fat. Penne pasta, nuts and seeds were also put together and our order resulted to one crazy salad and wrap with tons of health-promoting compounds.
The mixed flavor was super sarap. Delicioso!
Price for Value: ★★★★☆
Sumo Salad is where you can find great choices for a light lunch, brunch, snack or dinner! Budget per meal is S$6-9 and the range is about PHp 200 to PHp 300. Must-tries are Tuna Potatoes, Grilled Chicken Potatoes, Grilled Chicken with mushroom. The price is quite reasonable with generous portions that really fill up the entire plate or container (you can choose small or large). I hope they also open a store in the Philippines soon! I suspect I’d be a frequent customer when they do. 😀
Thinking about this food, do I miss Singapore? Yes, guilty as charged.
