The wines and spirits section provides a range imported from boutique French and Australian vineyards, including the exclusively-imported Peccavi Wines from Margaret River, Australia.
As a grocer that prides itself on providing only all-natural ingredients free from additives and flavourings, fresh and seasonal produce are harvested and transported to the stores within 48 hours to ensure a farm-to-store that retains as much of the original freshness and flavour as possible.
If you are a cheese lover, you will be delighted to know that the Little Farms Grocer has a specialised cheese section with staff on hand to recommend the best charcuterie for cheese platters. You can even custom order cheese platters based on budget and preference.
Hearty Meals at the Little Farms Bar + Grill
Located next to the grocer is the Little Farms Bar + Grill which serves a wholesome grill-focused menu that includes all-natural, gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients. Ingredients on the menu can also be found in its grocery, in case you like the food tasted and would like to create your own versions of the dishes at home.
The restaurant has an al fresco dining area and is pet-friendly, making it an ideal spot to bring your furry friends for lunch or dinner. We particularly liked the outdoor area as it is spacious and has a particular charm to the environment that encourages you to sit back and relax.
Sumptuous Brunch and Charcoal Grill Dishes
We got to try a selection of dishes from the brunch (available till 2 pm) and charcoal grill as well as other mains (available from 12 pm onwards) menus.
From the brunch menu, the Shakshuka ($20+) is an appetising dish that comprised of juicy tomatoes, coddled eggs, feta and avocado slices that give its lush creamy texture, paired with sourdough.
The Free Range Pork Rack ($28+) from the Charcoal Grill menu has a lightly charred edge, giving it just the right balance in the meat’s tenderness and savouriness. The Roaring Forties Lamb Cutlets ($36+) on the dinner menu is also a delectable dish that cleverly leverages on the curry leaf and mango chimichurri to augment the flavours on the palate as well as aesthetics.
The Bolognese ($24+) comes with a delightful sauce base of pork and beef ragu with parmigiana Reggiano, served on the snail shell-shaped lumaconi pasta. I normally prefer for the Bolognese to have a fresh rich tomato paste and wine overtone, but the relatively light tomato base is to the benefit of the overall flavour palette of the dish.
The Smash Burger ($24+) served with O’Conner beef, cheese and onion rings is a sizeable dish that we found to be good for sharing, albeit a tad dry. We recommend to pair it with a light and a moist side dish like the Serangoon Slaw ($8+).
Round up the meal with desserts such as the Chendol Sundae ($12+) for a local flavour or one of the cakes that include dairy-free choices.
The drinks complement the mains very well, so do give them a shot, especially the frozen margaritas and wine selection.
There is also a kids menu if you plan to bring your little one for a delicious treat or have a family day out over the weekend. Choices include the Juniors Avo Toast ($14+), Wholesome Hotcake ($12+) and Bambinos Brekkie ($16+).
