Nice location - Edit

Grove @ Waterway point occupies a prominent location; it's next to "cookhouse" koufu food court and near to the exit to outdoor kids happy park. Grove offers a clean, spacious and cozy place for diners to enjoy their vegetarian/vegan meal. Their menu is properly labelled so we know which items are eggless and dairy-free.

Their bento is a fast and healthy choice, but they have many interesting options in their menu. We tried their signature dry truffle ramen which uses authentic Italian black truffle pate and genuine Italian truffle oil; it tastes delicious and serving portion is sufficient. The fusion version of pasta appears in their laksa pasta - another delicious and creative dish which nicely incorporates Asian laksa sauce with Italian pasta. We also tried their new dish, claypot assam "fish". Vegans can request for dairy-free version. This new dish is delicious and worth trying. Last but not least, their handmade rice rolls with lion mane's mushrooms and fluffy truffle mushroom buns are great dim sum items.

We have tasted the food at Elemen restaurant which is absolutely above standard. We trust that Grove, under the management of Elemen, will become better and better. Food pricing is based on factors such as location, ingredients, food quality, etc. Overall, we find that their prices are reasonable. We also enjoy our meals at Grove. We will certainly come back here to try other new dishes.

Food below average - Edit

Before Elemen took over, they had good food. Variety of rice and noodles, even drinks. The baked rice was amazing. Now they have pathetic noodles, bentos and their staff always look unhappy.

Pros: -

Cons: Very few options in food and drinks, Staff not very friendly, Most of the time condiments runs out.

They didn’t label :( - Edit

We had Dry Tomato Spinach Noodles and Truffle fries.

The spinach noodle dish consist of Green Spinach noodles, tomato sauce, capsicum, Monkey Head mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower - I just like the ingredients, taste wise is okay only

Truffle fries are good, the truffle flavour isn’t too strong, however.....we almost had cheese in our truffle fries had I not check the receipt minutes later. On the name tag it just says ‘truffle fries’ but on the receipt it says ‘truffle fries with parmesan cheese’!

Discovering the beauty in Vegetarian Cuisine - Edit

Simply loves the revamped menu @ GroVe. We ordered the Laksa Sayang Hey! @ $9.8, Mushroom Pesto Pasta @ $9.8 and Truffle Fries @ $6.8.

In term of presentation, it looks great and appetizing. This uniquely combination - Laksa with Ramen, is delicious, I like the texture and taste of the broth. The Mushroom Pesto Pasta is what I would like to order again on my next visit. It’s so much better than those serves in the fast casual restaurant chain. Good to have another option to go to now.

Lately, having some craving for fries, so the Truffles fries is just perfect.

Food is not nice and way NOT worth it's Price tags - Edit

I always believe more people will convert to vegetarians or vegans, or at least for a day or more, if the food is so delicious. I have seen quite a number of vegan joints made that impact on people, even without dairy/eggs ingredients.

First thing, you only have the glutinous rice that is vegan. There is only one option.

I ordered the vegan glutinous rice for myself, while i ordered 3 more items for my non-vegetarian wife and children to eat.

pizza (not nice)
tom yum with rice (not nice)
soup noodle (not nice)
glutinous rice (ok)

Not that i'm expecting a lot, i can make better food than they do. The price is too high for it's quality and the small variety of ingredients they use for each dish.

Let's put aside the price for the time being, i still won't go back even if they lower the prices.

I always believe vegan/vegetarian have to be made delicious, otherwise, don't even do it. Although it's a person choice to adopt a vegan/vegetarian diet, i feel that how delicious you make the food to be has an impact on their choices. If the food isn't made nice enough, it may have a reverse impact on their choice.

Just an example of comparsion:
For a lousy tasting $8 pizza (4slices), i would rather buy a delicious, vegan $15 hawaiian pizza (8slices) from Brownice East Coast. More economical and value for $.

Pros: location: help supply punggol community

Cons: price too high, food not nice, not worth even if lower the price

Good Vegetarian, One Vegan Option - Edit

Whoever categorised this restaurant as having vegan options was misleading. while there are many that look vegan friendly on the surface, when I asked they said they put milk in every dish except the lotus rice. So they have one vegan option exactly...

Otherwise it is bustling with business and is well designed.

Pros: Vegetarian, Popular

Cons: Only 1 vegan option

Only veggie option in Punggol Waterway Point - Edit

Nice selection of noodles, baked rice & burgers. It's located next to the Koufu food court on the 2nd floor, which is itself next to Times the bookstore.

As there are no other veggie options in the entire mall (basement restaurants & foodcourt), GroVe is a welcome option for veggies, although they charge cafe prices instead of foodcourt prices.

Eg: my bowl of dried noodles with monkey-head mushrooms was average tasty, but cost $8.80.

Family-friendly setting (with baby chairs & space to navigate your strollers). It should be more enjoyable if you go in a group so you can order different dishes & share.

Visited at dinner time on Monday, rest of the mall was very crowded, GroVe was half-full.

Pros: Menu selection, Location - only veggie option in mall

Cons: Only veggie option in mall, Bit pricey
