Superior Chia Seeds & Premium Bird’s Nest

I have been incorporating my breakfast with chia seeds and I never knew that there are more 1000+ types of chia seeds in the world! surprised This was made known to me after a chat with Mr. Freddy Yap, the CEO of Superior.


Chia seeds are known to have an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and protein. They are one of the most nutritious food in the world that helps to aid heart and digestive health, stabilise blood sugar and maintain stronger bones and teeth. High in fibre, gluten-free and transfat free, they are great for cleansing and detoxing and are delicious combined in food and drink recipes for that much needed energy boost, which is why I love having it for breakfast since it is the first meal of the day. smile

Then again, not all chia seeds in the market are good. In order to allow consumers like us to enjoy the best of the best, Superior had incorporated 5 of the best chia seeds amongst the 1000+ types and had micro sliced them at a fairly low temperature in order not to destroy the nutrients in the seeds. With them finely milled, the nutrients are easier to absorb as raw chia seeds with the husk still intact are less likely to be as nutritious as they are digested naturally as a whole by the body. Other than being a meal replacement to aid in weight loss, it also helps to prevent constipation. Here are some dishes specially created by Yàn for Superior’s event.

Superior also offers premium bird’s nest which are painstakingly cleaned manually by hand, using only distilled water. The nests are natural, organic and free from any additives, chemicals or cleaning agents. Each nest receives a final quality check, ensuring its optimum colour, size, and shape which contributes to its bite and springy texture after cooking.

Customers may choose to purchase 2 types of products – double boiled bird’s nest (2 bowls for S$158) and dried bird’s nests (S$960 for 200g). For those who wants to enjoy bird’s nest without the hassle of preparing it, do order the double boiled bird’s nest. The dried bird’s nest is first soaked in boiling water for an hour, then gently double boiled for another hour before being naturally sweetened with rock sugar or honeycomb. Customers can also choose their preferred level of sweetness when ordering online. Each order of double boiled bird’s nest is delivered right to your doorstop in a porcelain vacuum flask that helps keep the tonic fresh, air tight and warm.

We were treated to Chilled Double-Boiled Superior Bird’s Nest in Coconut Water served with Vanilla Ice Cream, a lovely combination which I totally enjoy savouring.

Plentyfull – Restaurant, Patisserie & Gourmet Grocer

Plentyfull is an all-day dual concept restaurant comprising of a restaurant, patisserie and gourmet grocer and more. With a philosophy of sourcing their ingredients from farms and cooking with no preservatives, it offers a wide variety of menu which are freshly prepared in-house.

What first greeted us was Little Farms, their gourmet grocer with a range of organic ingredients and snacks, from which the restaurant obtains some of its ingredients as well.

The restaurant’s interior was spacious, warm and nicely decked out in beautiful modern industrial decor.

Plentyfull Fries ($12) caught me by surprise. What a unique way of presenting fries. The potatoes are shaved in strips and fried to give it a layered and crispy texture.

Tofu Caprese ($14) is made with silken tofu dressed in yuzu soy dressing with plum tomatoes, shallot and seeds. The tangy tomatoes and yuzu sauce truly stimulates the palate and appetite.

Miso Gratinated Aubergine ($16) also known as eggplant is gratinated with Saikyo miso on cabbage slaw to give it a crispy skin and tender meat-like texture.

Pan-fried Farmed Barramundi ($26) is quick-braised and served with seasonal greens in a yuzu wasabi glaze.

House-smoked Mussels on Toast ($24) is served with charred scallion yoghurt and kimchi tomatoes. It has a balanced taste of sweet, sour and spicy.

Short-rib Ragu with House-made Parpadelle ($26) is my favorite main dish which includes ingredients like confit vine tomatoes and pecorino cheese. The pasta is springy with a firm bite, not too soggy and just right. The meat sauce is extremely flavorful, and the texture is slightly different from the usual bolognese sauce as this is more meaty.

Mango Mint Soda ($8) and Bana-Tato ($9) are made with fresh mango, mint leaves, soda and banana, soya milk, honey, sweet potato. Sweet potato in a drink? Don’t be alarmed, it was surprisingly delicious!

Devil’s Food Cake ($9) has various sponge cake layers topped with valrhona dark chocolate ganache. Very rich, very moist, very sinful. tongue

Queen’s Cake ($9) is a crowd-pleasing dessert with strawberry sponge layered with rose cream, lychees and raspberries. It was light, sweet and fluffy. Definitely a ladies’ favorite. heart

S’mores Tart ($8) is my personal favorite. That buttery and crunchy crust, with chocolatey goodness and a smooth meringue on top that’s lightly toasted. I give this a thumbs up. smile

Monkey Cake ($9) got its name as it is made with chocolate and bananas.
