Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL)
Fresh Fruits Lab(FFL) is a simple and elegant Bar & Bistro with a trademark fruity focus, artfully designed in a subtle laboratory style.
At FFL, the menu is specially designed and handcrafted to incorporate a fruity element in many of the dishes, adding a dash of tangy excitement to our customers’ dining experience. FFL’s unique proposition will definitely appeal to the café goers who appreciate a healthily balanced dining experience in a comfortable, relaxed setting.
They offer a delightful array of desserts, specially crafted signature mains, or simply chill out with a pick from their wide variety of fruit and floral beers.
The place was pretty crowded even though we went on a weekday evening. Whilst waiting for our orders we were given free samples of cold pressed juices in test tubes! I tried the Soft-Shell Crab Pasta ($19), the soft shells were crispy yet easy to chew, and seasoned through and through with their signature chili crab sauce. The portions are large so I think you could afford to share a main dish with a friend unless you're famished.
If you aren't a fan of cold-pressed juices, I highly recommend their Fruit Infused Sodas ($6). My favourite was Passionfruit and it was an amazing combination of fizziness plus sweet and sourness. It even had the actual fruit in the drink! Definitely going back just for the soda.
I visited with a friend during lunch hour and the cafe was really packed; we had to wait 20 minutes before finally getting a table. We were offered complementary fruit juice during our wait, and the service staff was friendly. While I love coffee, I couldn’t resist trying out their exotic fruit-infused beverages like Fruit Beats ($8) and Sakurambo ($5) - black tea flavoured with Japanese cherries. The juices were all very fresh, and the fruity flavours enhance the flavour of the beverages too! The Da Bomb Burger ($19) was hearty and wholesome, with a juicy 250g patty, sunny-side up egg and savoury melted cheese. In line with the theme of the cafe, the burger was served with fries and a fruit salad. The main attraction of course has to be FFL’s homemade rainbow cake ($7), which was moist and soft. Their food is so instagrammable too, making this cafe one of my favourites in the East.
