Food: Bollywood Veggies

We decided to explore the countryside this weekend.

There are large tracts of undeveloped land along Lim Chu Kang. Bryan dared me to roll down the windows and breathe in the farm fresh air made up of cow dung and chicken poop. I did it, but I was holding my breath while we went by. So was he. Chicken.

We ended up at Bollywood Veggies, an organic vegetable farm run by Ivy Singh and her husband. It promotes healthy lifestyle and sustainability.

*

Plants for sale.

*

The Poison Ivy Bistro, which served farm fresh goodness to your table.

Bryan eyeing his vegetable with trepidation.

*

Our feast. When we cleaned up our plates, the server came back and eyed our empty plates and asked if we were very hungry, coz she’s never met another couple who ate as much as we had.

*

Jungle Curry Chicken. its flavour sit between the coconut milk rich chinese style and the indian spiced variety.

*

papaya salad. tasted very organic.

*

Achar fish. good for those who like achar.

*

personally what I thought was the best dish. spicy kang kong that was lightly fried. it wasn’t too oily or too salty. positively love this!

*

we added this to our meal near the end. Moringa tempura. It’s really just leaves they plucked off their Moringa tree out back, rolled around with flour and deep fried. served with sweet black sauce on the side. very tasty and crunchy.

*

mmm.

*

After lunch, we took a walk around the farm.

*

learning the good life at the farm
*

I’ve never seen a scarecrow in my life before. Glad I managed to rectify that at age 33.

*

I wonder if there’s a breast tree around.

*

I found the signs funny.

*

Figs. one of my favourite snacks.

*

The staff are called Warriors. the farm makes it a point to give the underprivileged an opportunity to end themselves a living.

*

white horse. dog. thing.

*

We decided to explore more of the countryside when we met a pack of dogs. We stopped to take a photo and this one was kind enough to pose for the strange human waving at it from behind the window. Felt like a dog safari.

  1. Ivy Singh is so cool. Love that her staff are called warriors and that she creates employment for those who deserve help and can’t find it in ‘the system’.

    1. yes it’s great that there are opportunities for such people. like the SPC petrol kiosk along Telok Blangah road, the dude managing the car wash hires people from MINDS
