Anyway, the other way we came across this restaurant called Salivation, tucked away in the far corner after Murugan Idli Kadai, Raj Restaurant and that Thai massage place. It was small and caught our attention because it was a vegetarian cafe that had burgers, pizza, and even some Mexican fare.
We had already eaten on that day so postponed the visit. Yesterday we went again and when a couple of our friends who live close by agreed to join us, we zeroed in on Salivation cafe.
The menu is not extensive but very interesting. They have 4-5 different items in each category above in the menu picture.
We decided to start with the Mezze Platter which had 6 pieces of warm toasted pita slices and three dips – hummus, tzatziki, and red pepper flavoured sour cream. The hummus was especially delicious but as is usually the case, we were left with too much dips and not even bread.
It’d been ages since any of us had a burger so we jumped at that chance. TH and I ordered the paneer burger and the other couple ordered the feta cheese burger. You can ask them to cut in into halves to avoid “my share is smaller” argument later at the table (not that I ever have such petty fights, ahem, but you know 😉
The burgers come with a side of fries and a simple salad. It was just perfect because we also got a pizza for the table.
I know it looks slightly burned but it wan’t. This is the spinach pizza with additional olive topping. It was not overtly spinachy-y and the cheese was just the right amount. There were 8 pieces so perfect to share among the four of us.
We decided to skip dessert here and head to Max Brenner and indulge (picture below). They had some interesting desserts though, like parfait, cheesecake, and gelato. Maybe next time. .
The price is very reasonable, the portions are not that huge. The meal for four of us came to SGD 34. Not bad, eh?

Here’s a picture of the super indulgent dessert we had at Max Brenner in Vivocity Mall, Harborfront. The waffles with hazelnut cream was especially delicious!
