Once Upon a Time, Steph had a really bad rosti craving. After much deliberation and research on where to go to eat rosti (there’s a Swiss-something place at Suntec which seems really popular in local forums), she went for the most convenient option: Once Upon a Rosti, at AXA Building – Tanjong Pagar MRT (Exit E).
Welcome to Once Upon a Rosti – set up by the same folks behind Once Upon a Milkshake which seems to be doing really badly right now…
Basic interior, kinda cosy.
In line with the fairy tale theme, I was served by a fairy god mother!!!
Here’s what I had – an Original Italian set meal which consisted of rosti, chicken sausages, meatball marinara, 2 sauces of your choice, and a drink of your choice.
It was o-kayyyy not too bad, sausages were overboiled though. Rosti was meh.
Bob had something more exciting – Grilled chicken, an omelette and japanese curry. Plus a Bundaberg which added up to about $10. Still, it was a tad too salty.
Overall? OUAR was meh. Really subpar. For a place that specializes in rosti, I expected much more. I think I’d rather pay a premium price for better rosti. A lot of their additional ingredients also seem like… third-party processed food. They throw it all in a paper bowl and cover the rosti with ingredients – which on one hand, might make a great comfort snack, but on the other, makes for really soggy rosti.
Food seems lazy, in general, but understandable – I guess they have to push it out fast for the crowds during lunch time.
Oh well. I guess you could say it curbs a craving for less.
