Cedele by The Bakery Depot @ Raffles City, Singapore

Embracing the motto "eat well, be well", Cedele advocates positive eating and attitute with healthy food crafted by artisans who uses only the finest ingredients. They also boast that no trans fats are involved in the making of their food and that all food are made from scratch. For myself, I have frequented Cedele more than a few times for their tantalizing tea time snacks (they have one of the best red velvet cakes) and as a matter of fact, I have only eaten their mains merely once before.

A quick browse through the menu, and I had decided on Beef Balsamic Mushrooms (S$24.50), which  was a larger version of their Beef and Mushroom salad. The supposedly "medium" Sirloin beef stripes were slightly overcooked, and were served together with pan-glazed mushroom, potato patty and garden greens. Succulent and juicy? Yes, but it would be so much better if it was doned medium. On a side note, the crusted potato patty was pretty awesome though.


Another of their signature mains, Citrus Lemon Salmon (S$22.90)  - a combination of grilled salmon garnished with a splash of lemon juice, potato patty and garden greens. The salmon was a tad overcook as well, resulting in the flaky texture on the meat. Well, I still prefer my salmon with a touch of pink in the center. This dish kinda made it, but there was nothing much to rave about.

What is good food without the company of greater people? Aunt Hannah (left) enjoys her vegeterian tofu salad, while Cousin Grace loves a good portion of their Citrus Lemon Salmon.

   

And well, pretty much everyone else.


All in all, Cedele is a great restaurant to sit back and watch the world passed by, with a good ol slice of velvet cake and cuppucinno. I wouldn't say that their mains are that awesome, but do give their pastries a try someday. You'll be in for a surprise.
