Since Little Farms opened its first outlet in 2016 at the Valley Point Mall, I’ve come to expect high-quality, fresh produce from the specialty grocer.
Its new store, a 6,800 square foot space at Tanglin Mall which opened in June, exceeds my expectations.
This is mainly due to the grocer’s recent acquisition of my favorite sourdough starter Starter Lab. She operates a bakery at the front of the store, where the bread is baked on site.
There are also impressive cheese and meat counters at the entrance, with friendly staff on hand to make recommendations. Further afield, a wide range of food staples and fresh produce awaits – including organic, gluten-free, vegan and ketogenic offerings.
The same standard of produce is featured in its 75-seat Little Farms Table in-house cafe.
For starters, try the Smoked Heirloom Tomato Tartine ($17) with Vegan Cheese on Rosemary Bread; Jerky King Salmon ($24) with crispy tortillas, poached eggs and avocado; and Spiced Grilled Cauliflower ($21) with Pomegranate, Red Cabbage, and Mint Molasses Yogurt Dressing.
For the main course, opt for the New Zealand Akaroa salmon ($34) with artichoke, capers, fennel and orange; or Mount Barker Roasted Chicken Breast ($26) with root vegetables, pearl barley risotto, feta and kale.
The juicy, tender chicken is outstanding, and you must also bring home the raw version from the grocers section.
