Just a little information about PODI. 
Podi is under Bakery Depot which also owns Cedele, Toss and Turn and PLT sandwiches. 

I am glad to receive a Media Invitation for the food tasting. 

The simple menu with quite a bit of variety to choose from. 
I was tempted by their all day breakfast, but my eyes were drawn to the truffle fries and the mussels in garlic butter sauce. 

Mango Lychee Sorbet
Refreshingly good, could taste both lychee bits and mango puree quite individually. Both the fruits seemed to exude their best on my tastebud. 

Salted Caramel Milk Shake 
Not exactly salty but It's the kind of drink has the best mix of caramel and nuts? 
Interesting and flavorful. 

Wild Mushroom Soup
Big bits of mushroom could be spotted in the soup, dunking the bread that came along with it, I am looking forward to the dishes that I've ordered.

Mussels in garlic butter sauce
Totally blown away by this. The sauce is not exactly that creamy that you will sick therefore. With a tinge of swaggy (lemon added I guess) 
I could literally just bottoms up the sauce. 
Flavorful yet not masking over the mussels freshness. 

Truffle Fries
Lucky I top up $4 for this plate of goodness!!!!
OMG OMG, this one is sooooooo yums can!!! I could even smell truffle before it came.
The sauce condiment is too yummy as well. I cannot stop munching the fries, the husband was full of praises as well.
Please do order this when you are there.

CrabMeat Konbu Aglio Olio
On first look, it looks like Marinara, but this is not, Aglio Olio topped with cheese shavings, rockets and the Konbu (seaweed)
Opted for Spaghetti, Al dente, flavourful with crabmeat chunks, tasted a little like Mee Goreng I felt.
I got a little sick after eating this, but the hubz enjoyed this plate. :)
House Beef Burger
Love the oozy egg sunny side up! This is the first time I see the bun with vegetables, so healthy!
Although the beef patty is well done, it was still moist and juicy on the inside, topped with sautéed onions and mushrooms, just the perfect match for me.
Just don't ignore the greens by the side, it was a added ommph for the dish. Drizzled with yuzu dressing, the perfect way to savour this dish without feeling sick.
ps. by the time this burger was served, I was feeling full already, and the fries are all happily in the tum tum.
Waffles with 2 scoops of Ice Cream (Belgium Chocolate and Wild Strawberry)
Was too full by the time the waffles were served.
Waffle Lover me, was super looking forward to the waffles even though I was full.
But, the waffles were a disappointment, cos they were hard and dry. It just seemed like some plain batter.
Had a bite and left it untouched thereafter.

Even though the dinner did not end with a sweet note, but we still enjoyed the main course thoroughly.
Probably we should have ordered their cakes instead.

3.5 stars out of 5.
I will definitely return for their main course.

Thank you Podi Singapore for the invite!



  1. i've went there to try their cakes before -- for about 3 times, and their service was really terrible for all the visits. :(
