ADVERT – SUFOOD

Had an opportunity the other day to attend a food tasting at Sufood, a new Italian-inspired meatless dining concept in Singapore, hailing from Taiwan’s largest restaurant chain operator WOWPRIME in a joint venture with local PUTIEN. Thank you, Yilun (brand executive of PUTIEN) and K.C. (manager of Sufood Raffles City) for hosting us. It was such a wonderful experience trying out my first Vegetarian Italian-inspired meal in a restaurant.

BACKGROUND STORY ON SUFOOD

Founded in 2010, SUFOOD is the first meat-free concept restaurant under WOWPRIME GROUP, the largest F&B operator in Taiwan. Through a joint venture, SUFOOD launched in Singapore for the very first time at Raffles City in May 2014.

The casual 140-seat veggie diner is SUFOOD’s first outlet outside of Taiwan. Focusing on freshness of ingredients and a clean-tasting palate, SUFOOD’s menu features more than 200 ingredients. Set menus are affordable at S$29.80++ for a full eight- course meal.

To commemorate the launch, SUFOOD set a new Guinness World Record® for most pizzas made in 12 hours, achieving a record of 3,574 pizzas. The event raised $12,015.50 with
all proceeds going towards Pink Ribbon Walk, a walk against breast cancer organised by the Breast Cancer Foundation.

SUFOOD is not only inspired by Italian cuisine but also by how it is prepared; though only using basic cooking techniques, Italian cuisine still exudes diverse and rich flavours. SUFOOD thus relies chiefly on the quality of the fresh ingredients to create innovative and delicious meat-free cuisines.

DISCOUNTS

Currently, they have an ongoing 1-for-1 DBS/POSB card promotion for their set meal (S$29.80). However, I can assure you even without the promotion, this place is worth trying! Even the crowd agrees with me! The picture below was taken before the promotion timeframe. The promotion is valid daily from 2pm – 4:30pm (last order at 3pm).

REVIEW

When I go to a restaurant, I usually look out for two things and they are, 1. customer service and 2. food quality & taste.

For SUFOOD, I would give them a thumbs up for both areas because they are excellent in the customer service aspect due to having made their staff go through training in Taiwan previously. From what I understand from Yilun, in Taiwan, service expectations are much higher as compared to Singapore hence, the necessity of receiving training in Taiwan beforehand. You can expect quality customer service here at SUFOOD.

Additionally, besides the impeccable customer service, their food quality and taste is also amazing. My favourites has to be the Star Pizza and Baked Potato Al Fungi. I am drooling just looking at the pictures again. I find that at only S$29.80, this 8-course set meal is truly value for money. A plate of vegetarian meal in the hawkers would probably cost S$4 and you must take into consideration that the S$4 comes with no customer service nor a great ambience for you to enjoy with your love ones while Sufood is a wonderful place for you to have a great and nutritious meal with your family at a very small cost. To me, I would rather spend a couple more dollars to have the food served to me, and also have a cosy setting to enjoy my meal.
