I went here for a brekky for the first time. The set up is similar to the restaurants at Dempsey, fairly casual lunch time menus with nicely presented courses. I had the scrambled eggs on a muffin with some chicken. All cooked nicely, and served well by helpful and friendly staff.

Chucked at some corner of Singapore, somewhere near Redhill at Tanglin, more specifically Phoenix Park, erected a restaurant some years ago. Specializing in mostly (all-day) breakfast dishes (brunch) on weekends, circling around Eggs Benedict and Burgers, Spruce promises a memorable dining experience at this location, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. i went there for breakfast that time, this round to dinner.The ambience is one worth admiring, more so for the evening, when the artificial lights come out while the natural light goes to sleep. The Carrot Cake is my favourite among the food I ordered. It is not too sweet too. will go again just for the dessert. went for breakfast that day, but i still prefer the carrot cake as comparedSpending: Approximately SGD 50
Ate here with a bunch of friends and got to try various dishes.Personally ordered their Spruce Signature Burger. The fries were tasty and were served hot. The meat patty in the burger was juicy and thick as well. The plate did not look like much at first, but I had trouble finishing the plate! The Burger itself seemed really worth it. However, the fries are too much if just eaten by one person. A side salad would have been a better choice.Spending: Approximately SGD 25
Well-known for their weekend brunch, try the Spruce Big Brekkie with sparkling wine. From $29++.
Nice little find off town, with really great ambience, awesome for a date. The tomato soup was very good, and the Spruce salad was not bad as well. However, there was nothing fantastic about the Spruce Signature burger. Rather ordinary. The tagliatelle with pork was a poor show. It was just generally salty and dry, something you would expect out of an American high school cafe. The waiter who was serving us behaved in a very extraordinary, slightly disconcerting manner. Compared to similar dining places, the service here was just fair, at best. If you do go, go for the ambience. Spending: Approximately SGD 40
Had been itching to try out Spruce, after seeing quite a few reviews of it online as well as in various publications. Apparently their chef was from Wine Garage, which made really good burgers. Reservations were a pain though as the place was almost always full, till I got lucky one evening and managed to squeeze in a reservation for an outdoor table. Outdoor seating probably isn\'t the best idea especially when Spruce is located just up a tiny hill next to lush greenery along Tanglin Road. But hey, if bugs are your best pals, then by means go ahead. Read. The bugs are suicidal. They do kamikaze stunts like crashing into your drinks, table and food. After a couple of minutes, we surrendered and requested for a seat indoors, which was promptly given to us (Whatever happened to the reservations). Roasted Mycofarm Mushrooms with Herbs - We initially wondered if mycofarm was some special type of mushrooms but after googling, it turned out to be the name of a farm in Singapore. On hindsight we probably shouldn\'t have ordered this side dish. The mushrooms tasted very normal but were literally drenched in oil. And it was definitely not olive oil. Creamy Macaroni and Cheese - Now this side dish fared much better. Simple comfort food for the masses. Small macaroni shells evenly coated with a nice smooth creamy and cheesey layer. Not too overwhelming. The bits of burnt mozzarella cheese on top provided a nice crisp texture. Seared Tuna with Steamed Bok Choy, Carrot and Ginger Broth - Make no mistake. This was a main. 5 slices of tuna tataki with a clump of bok choy going for $22. The tuna was disappointing to the say the least. Not pan seared till lightly charred on the outside while uncomfortably limp on the inside. Being less then generous on the salt didn\'t exactly help matters as well. The Spruce Burger with Hand Cut Chips - The burger was good though a tad small. The beef patty crumbled with ease when I poked my fork into it, leading to us coin it "burger crumble". Corny I know. The patty was probably one of the best I\'ve had in a long while. A little moist without the beefy taste overwhelming. Simple and unadulterated. I thought the buns could do with a little more toasting though. There is an option of topping up $2 for a slice of bacon to go along with the patty. Cranberry, Blueberry and Coconut Tart Ala Mode - I thought this tart sounded really interesting and healthy with all the berries so I had a go at it. Well I wouldn\'t say it was fantastic but at least it was decent. I could make out the taste of blueberries and cranberries and strands of coconut in between. Lightly sweet. Unfortunately, the accompanying scoop of ice cream melted really fast and was your run off the mill vanilla ice cream. Yogurt and Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Seasonal Fruit - This dessert was actually more yogurt then panna cotta, smooth and semi liquid. The layer of blueberry was sweet and complemented the yogurt quite well. It was topped with this brownish looking muesli bars that stuck to my teeth when I chewed on it. Nice but majorly irritating. Generally speaking, prices aren\'t really over the top but food quality could be improved quite a bit in general. Service in general was good but there was this young waiter that stood out with his earnest attitude and attentiveness. Pity I didn\'t catch his name. Spruce is worth a try, just for the burger, but probably not worth a return. By the way, parking is free.
Chucked at some corner of Singapore, somewhere near Redhill at Tanglin, more specifically Phoenix Park, erected a restaurant some years ago. Specializing in mostly (all-day) breakfast dishes (brunch) on weekends, circling around Eggs Benedict and Burgers, Spruce promises a memorable dining experience at this location, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The ambience is one worth admiring, more so for the evening, when the artificial lights come out while the natural light goes to sleep. If you are taking a public transport there, it’s a 15 minutes walk from Redhill MRT. I always do the walking instead of bus services, I am a bus-idiot. Be warned though, especially on weekends meal time, that there will be a long queue waiting for you if you haven’t made any reservations. We waited for a good 45 minutes for a group of 6. Worse thing is it’s so secluded there isn’t anywhere for you to walk around or do some window shopping while waiting.Banana Hotcakes ($14++) :: Yes it’s either Eggs Benedict or Yoghurt + Hotcakes for me, usually. Disappointingly though, the Hotcakes doesn’t match up to the standard of the Yoghurt. I thought the Banana flavor overpowered the course. Also, the hotcakes are really just plain, hotcakes, no fragrance like it usually would bring out, even though hotcakes might not be as smell-satisfying as pancakes. The honeycomb butter and blueberry syrup didn’t help much either.
I went to spruce with a group of girlfriends, it was our monthly gathering. I simply love their Carnaroli Risotto. It is served with Porcini Mushroom and truffled hen egg. The risotto is so light and refreshing. I love the porcini mushroom, very juicy. the truffled hen egg is a killer, it adds a little something to the dish making it very appetizing!
It was recommended by my friend We ordered quesadilla & grilled snapper tacos which come with drink, tortilla chips& salsa The snapper was quite heavily spiced & seasoned. The quesadillas were hot pockets of cheesy goodness. They were crispy withjust the right amount of cheesy without being heavy. Overall i rate 6/10
It was a lazy Sunday and we decided to head to Spruce for breakfast. This was one of our favourite hangouts for morning breakfast as the laidback style and cosy and relaxing for a slow weekend. I ordered the usual - Brioche French Toast with Mascarpone and Peach Jam. The price was reasonable at $14. The bread was soft, and the jam tasted just right without being too sweet. The entire combination of bread, cheese and jam made the entire meal just right. Not forgetting that it is a great place to chill and catch up with friends. Spending: Approximately SGD 14(Breakfast)
for photos and more reviews, visit http://littlemomentsofmylife.wordpress.com/ (: the duck leg confit ($32) topped with roasted vegetable chutney, potato puree and some interesting papaya salad had a really beautiful presentation! and the meat of the duck was succulent and soft and although the skin was fried, it didn\'t taste unhealthily oily which was good! the signature spruce burger ($17) was mountainous haha. this was nothing special in my opinion, the burger bread and beef patty were pretty normal? but...BUT the potato wedges were really quite awesome! chunky and generously-sized, each piece was tastefully seasoned and really yummy. another awesome dish was the beef short ribs ($29) with fried egg, spinach and horseradish gremolata. i just tried a tiny chunk of that slab of beef and i was SOLD! it was juicy, melt-in-your mouth delicious, with the fats oozing out and the taste just explodes in your mouth in heavenly goodness. mmmmmmmm! i didn\'t try the whole roasted snapper ($27) with herb salad and lemon jam, but my first reaction when i saw it was: it looks scary! haha. this is not something i would have ordered for myself, simply because it had a hell lot of bones :/ eww. but i suppose the taste was fine. the dish i ordered turned out to be a miss, unfortunately i was really quite excited about my tagliatelle with kurobuta pork bolognese ($22) but it turned out to be rather disappointing. i liked the chunks of meat in it, quite a generous amount, which was good. but the noodles were really odd! >.< i have no idea how they cooked it, but the noodles were sort of hard, and REALLY clumpy. like chunks of them just stuck together, until i ended up eating it with a spoon rather than a fork O.O weird. oh well. they also have a wide variety of drinks there, and we got the dom mojito ($17). quite nice! tasted pretty strong, but what i like about mojito is its refreshing taste! (: and finally. the reason for me gushing over Spruce, despite my disappointing main course, was because of their double chocolate crunch cake with sea salt caramel filling ($12/slice). OMGOSH. this has to be one of the most epic chocolate cakes i have ever eaten. for one, it is a humongous slice, so don\'t be put off by the price. secondly, it tastes awesome. like really, mind-blowingly chocolate-y, orgasmic-ly awesome. the whole slice is simply EXPLODING WITH CHOCOLATE. dense layers of cake interlaced with sinfully rich caramel, peppered with crunchy little bits of things inside (no idea what they are) and drizzled with chocolate sauce. the chocolate is the dark chocolate kind, slightly sweet, slightly bitter, and oh-so-absolutely-wonderful. there are no words to describe it. try it for yourself! im not sure whether it\'s always there though, because i think the desserts change pretty frequently.
