Singapore houses almost all kinds of International food. You can get any varieties you want in here. But as for good Mediterranean cuisines, there aren’t many choices. Fortunately, there is 1 Mediterranean restaurant newly opened in B2 of Orchard Central, right above Somerset MRT. it’s called MEDZ. It works the same way as Marche where you order using 1 card and pay when you exit. It is the same team from Marche which brought you this restaurant.
In Marche, when you order food, you need to stand and wait in front of the counter. However, in Medz, after ordering food, you are given an small alarm system. When the food is ready, it will vibrate and sound off. Then you just go back to the stall and receive your food. This really save some time. You can chit-chat with your friends at the dining table or order other food without waiting in front of the counter.
There are several stations serving food from Spain, France, Morocco, Turkey and Greece. I was told that the Kebab here is very authentic and strongly recommended. Directly showing below is Beyti ($12). It is a Turkish dish with grilled mutton, wrapped in lavash and served with lots of garlic.
Garlic-lovers have to try this!!
I tried another Kebab from the Turkish station. It is the Adana Kebab ($12) – a long minced grilled mutton filled with burning charcoal smell (not too overwhelming) and yet the meat is juicy. It is served very tasty rice that I have never try before: Short and thick rice gain.
In the French cuisine stall, I order the Duck Leg Confit. It is marvellous. Crispy outside and tender inside – costs $15. The duck meat simply melt in my mouth. It’s a total steal!. Preparing Duck Confit is not easy as it requires long hours since duck meat is generally tougher than chicken. For similar quality, it’s easily costs more than $25 in good restaurants.
I saw this very interesting meat ball that some customers ordered. After confirming the dish’s name, I went ahead to order. It is from the Spain cuisine, called Lamb Melfout ($8) – deep fried mutton meat balls. Crunchy but without the strong-aroma of mutton. It has a very nice presentation by using toothpick to hold on to it.
It’s always nice to have a good cup of Hazelnut Latte and dessert after a meal.
Overall, it’s a good experience. It serves very nice food. I totally enjoyed it. Definitely, I will bring come back again to try the Kebab and Duck Confit.
