Snatch is one of the latest salad bar to open at One Shenton Way, offering working executives and nearby residents another option for healthier eating in the Raffles Place CBD area.
But do we really need another salad bar, albeit a protein-centric one? If we look at the bustling crowd at The Daily Cut and unceasing queue at Grain Traders during lunch hour, the answer would probably be "yes".
As my friend wanted something light after his juice detox, salad was the shoo-in choice for lunch.
I was quite amused by the order form which is similar to our 4D lottery chit, but it supposedly serves an efficient system which can capture a high volume of orders, and reduce the chances of staff getting our orders wrong.
Each salad serving is available in 3 sizes: Rogue ($12), Predator ($15) and Hero ($18), which includes 1 to 3 proteins respectively, as well as 1 Greens/Carb, 3 supplements and 1 Dressing.
Protein choices include Chicken Breast/Thigh, Sirloin (+$1.50), Salmon (+$2), Ahi Tuna (+$2.50), which we can pair with Greens or carbs like Brown Rice and Gluten-free Pasta (+$0.50) and topped with supplements such as Sous Vide Egg, Shaved Parmesan, and Avocado (+$1).
We do see standard dressings like Balsamic Vinaigrette, Caesar, Honey Mustard, to more interesting ones like Yuzu Goma, White Truffle (+$0.50).
We shared a Rogue-sized combination of lightly-seared ahi tuna with crisp romaine lettuce, beetroot, cherry tomato, sous-vide egg and white truffle dressing. Tasted adequately fresh but pretty ordinary if you would ask me. For its price of $15 (after top-up amount for certain items), I can't help but feel that better satisfaction can be found elsewhere.
To stand out among the competition in the vicinity, Snatch perhaps needs to up their game by offering something more value-for-money or unique for their salads.
If you're into Paleo-friendly food, Snatch also serves up bone broth, which is a growing health-food trend in America.
