Hail Caesar Salad with House-smoked Chicken

This week, our Makan Kaki Chef Jordi Noguera of FOC shares with us another one of his favourite places to eat at in Singapore. Tucked away in a charming, rustic, corner of Dempsey, you’ll find Open Farm Community (from the same guy behind Tippling Club, Chef Ryan Clift), a restaurant that is doing excellent work in using farm-fresh ingredients, like lots of vegetables to create healthy yet hearty & tasty dishes. Chef Jordi finds the contemporary, yet laid-back style of food & presentation here much like what you’d find in Australia, but you’d be hard-pressed to pin it to any one style. The focus is mainly on sourcing ingredients from local and Malaysian farms (as close as possible, whenever possible) and even cooking produce grown direct from their own edible garden.
Chef Jordi is partial to their pastas, in particular their pesto trofie, with potatoes, french beans & pumpkin chunks.

But there are other pastas to choose from, including this gorgeous Mud Crab Spaghettoni.

While there is a focus on fresh vegetables, Open Farm Community is far from a vegetarian restaurant – you’ll find beautifully turned out fish, like this Asian-inspired Coconut Laksa Baramundi and also for the carnivores, robust, meaty dishes like braised lamb shank & beef short ribs.

Bottom line, if you want delicious, fresh, quality produce prepared meticulously and beautifully presented in gorgeous leafy surroundings, this is the place to be!
