Plentyfull is a multi-concept retail cum restaurant outlet in Millenia Walk. Having passed by the place on several occasion and glanced at the menu, my immediate thoughts were the pricing is slightly above market rate.
Since we had to visit Suntec to run some errands, we ended up in Millenia Walk to hunt for food options. The $9 craft beer promotion caught my attention so we decided to settle our dinner here.
It was only then I realised that everything at Plentyfull is made from scratch with the freshest seasonal produce sourced from farmers and artisans locally and internationally. That was probably the key reason why their food is priced slightly above the usual. I ordered the Chef’s Main – Seafood black rice with scallops, mussels and prawns for $34 and the Duck Confit for $28.
The food portion was on the small side, even for a lady. Taste wise, it was decent but nothing to shout about.
Given Singapore’s limited land use for agriculture, it is granted that fresh produce items would be more costly. However I don’t see the value-added of using these fresh produce for straight-forward, simple dishes which I could whip up on my own. Perhaps a more refined menu could better justify their pricing.
