We went at ten o'clock, they were hardly open.
I didn't like the poor choices of the breakfast on the menu when they advertise whole day breakfast around the mall.
I had to get up to get tell our orders as the staff were not attentive enough. Coffee is poorly done and the breakfast food is not tasty. Don't recommend, pricewise not worthy.

A stroll at Raffles city brought us to have lunch at PODI, an open air restaurant near the main fountain. The services was ok, the food portion wasn't too big for a female's appetite. Pricing wise just like any normal french ori talian restaurant.

Perhaps it was a weekday and the place isn't too packed. Will return to try the Duck confit to see if it is any good.

We are speaking about an open air restaurant in the basement of an average shopping with KFC and Subway as neighbors...
The food is ok but they have to be realistic...

The establishment was no bling-bling, with simple decorations which afforded a pleasing atmosphere. I do applaud PODI's easing of the furniture to provide ample walking space in between. Readers frequenting most of Raffles City's other dining establishments would understand the claustrophobic sense where you are in danger of knocking over someone's glass water at every turn.

I was surprised that with Cedele's modest range of special beverages, from caffeinated treats of Cinnamon Coffee to the acquired taste of Hot Ginger, PODI offered nothing sort of remarkable. The usual brunch goers, obviously part of the target demographics from its menu, could get their morning caffeine from its list of teas and coffees, but I was expecting some special beverages in the menu.

PODI's dishes was another matter entirely. From offerings of all-day brunch to grilled dishes to pastas, it offered pages of items to fulfill your indulgences. A pasta, a brunch meal and an item off the grill were what we ordered to get a taste of what PODI had to offer. We were enlightened to a choice of angel hair pasta, something we had not heard of. Once again, PODI surprised us with their choices of pasta, being only angel hair pasta and linguine.

I could only say that The Bakery Depot must have wanted to offer to the public a new concept restaurant by offering dishes different from what one could expect from its cafes. This in itself is a daring move, one which earns my applause. Unfortunately the dishes did not manage to create any lasting impression apart from one of surprise (only two choices of pasta and unremarkable bread for Rustic Chicken Pot), making PODI similar to other all-day breakfast offerings from other restaurants. With Cedele's success and popular offerings, the new establishment could use some of the support from its stabler sibling even though the purpose behind its conception may be to offer brand new dishes.

The value for the lunch menu is good and the soup was great, however the Ceasar salad wasn't great. Watery salad leaves and no sauce... What a pitty because the venue is great!
