We went there for breakfast, the waffle were really good and the menu was clear. Good service
They have SOME gluten free soups... But be warned the waiter doesn't seem to know that the bread they have is with gluten. Had to explain to them, it was nice of them to replace the bread with a mini salad after I sat down (though not very aware, they do mean well :))
This is review of Real Food at Novena Square2. I was just there with my celiac sister. She wanted to order the Gluten-Free soup, but was shocked that the bread that comes with it was made of WHEAT flour! I told them that when one orders GF soup, one expects the bread to be GF too. Do you know what their answer to that was? "It is on the side, you don't have to eat it." Incredible! Can you even believe that?! It is obvious that these people are merely jumping onto the GF bandwagon for profits - there is no COMMITMENT to the GF principle at all. As a celiac, would you trust that you are truly getting GF food? In fact, can you trust that you are even getting organic stuff, when they are so lacking in commitment?
*This is a review for Real Food Novena* The food is mediocre. The pancakes/waffles are edible but a bit dry. The rice and noodle dishes are decent. However, everything is clearly labeled on the menu, and they are very knowledgeable about cross-contamination, etc. It's very nice to be confident that I won't get sick after eating here.
I had read about this restaurant on a blog that said they were clueless. But my experience was fine. Maybe things have improved since that posting. A few items are gluten free. What they offer is well prepared. It was a great find since the idea of celiac disease is a rather new concept in Singapore. I was reassured that they take precautions with cross contamination. I did not get sick, and enjoyed the meal. It is located in the basement of a large shopping center near the Swissôtel at Clarke Quay.
