Roots Mediterranean – new restaurant at Greenwood, Watten Estate (Bukit Timah)

Roots Mediterranean is a new restaurant at Greenwood Avenue. It is situated among a row of shops at the small dining enclave in the expensive residential of Watten Estate in Bukit Timah, Singapore. Roots Meditarranean takes over the space from Rosso Bianco Italian Restaurant (read our review here). If you find that the restaurant looks familiar, that is because the interior has hardly changed. Only the restaurant concept and menu have changed.

The new Roots signboard was the main noticeable difference as we approached the restaurant. It is a large restaurant occupying a spacious corner unit in this row of shops. Before Rosso Biano, the space was used by another Italian restaurant, Donna Carmela. We think that each new restaurant on this space has improved on the earlier one.

Roots Mediterranean Menu

The transformation from a pure Italian restaurant concept to a Mediterranean restaurant concept is a good idea. Italian classics like pizza and pasta dishes are still on the menu which now includes Spanish and Greek items as well. Here are pictures of a few pages from the Roots Mediterranean Menu and Wine List

Wines by Glass

We thought that the prices for wine were quite reasonable. The Chianti Classico wine ($10 per glass) was pretty good.

Our meal at the new Roots Mediterranean restaurant started with a couple of tapas dishes. The Spanish Omelet with potatoes topped with melted cheese ($8) was a simple but tasty dish. The Spanish style meatballs served with spicy tomato sauce ($8) was also enjoyable.

Ravioli & Moussaka

From Spain, we moved on to Italy and Greece for our main courses – moussaka ($20) and spinach and cheese ravioli ($20).

Moussaka is a Greek dish that is quite similar to lasagne. This baked dish is made with potatoes and eggplant layered with minced meat and bechamel sauce. This moussaka at Roots Mediterraean was nicely done and we like it.

One whole page of the menu at Roots Mediterrean is devoted to ravioli. With ten variants to choose from, we selected the Half Moon Ricotta Spinaci with Parmesan Cream. It was a lovely dish in terms of both looks and taste.
