Ministry of Food (MOF) の Japanese Sweets & Coffee (A Singapore Food Post)

The great thing about being in a whole new environment is experiencing a lot of things for the first time.  Food definitely included.

So for my very first Singapore-based food-related post, I present Ministry of Food (MOF) の Japanese Sweets & Coffee.

Ministry of Food at AMK Hub mall

MOF is a Singapore-based restaurant chain specializing in Japanese inspired cuisine.  It's a very straight forward and relatively healthy business concept as they boast of refraining from using MSG, harmful chemicals, preservatives and artificial colorings or flavors in their food.

This is a no-frills place, folks.  From the decor to the food, it's simple, hassles-free dining.  They are also friendly to those wishing to use their free wifi for work or play (within limits, of course.)  Tons of outlet plugs are made available to their customers too

Inside
Once seated, you're met with a menu, an order sheet, and instructions on how to place your orders.  Once you've decided and filled out a form, you proceed to the counter for ordering and payment.

Order up!

MOF serves a variety of eats all, Japanese-inspired.  There are tons of items to choose from on the menu.  Some I've actually never encountered before til this visit.

Chicken Teriyaki Pasta (S$11.80 / Php370*)

They had me at teriyaki.  It's just a tad sweet and the chicken really compliments the pasta.  Yum!

Onsen Tamago Pasta (S$6.00 / Php200*)

A simple olive oil-based pasta with egg.  A no-frills dish but very tasty.

 Salmon Maki (S$8.80 / Php280*)

It's salmon!!!  Enough said.  Although I would have liked to have this served a little cold.

Iced Lemon Tea (add an additional S$1 / Php32* per meal set)

Iced lemon tea is perhaps one of the most popular drinks here in Singapore.  MOF's version isn't the one commercially available, powered-drink kind.  It's a house blend.  Just add sugar to fit your preferences.

MOF also serves an assortment of sandwiches, bento, gelati and other desserts too.

*S$1 = Php32

  1. Salmon Maki looks good. :) Sadly, I have never visited the place even after 4 years of living in Singapore.
