Snatch – Salad Bar Along Shenton Way For Clean Quick Eats
Another salad bar Snatch takes-off at the CBD area along Shenton Way. One more. The protein-centered shop focuses on “clean quick eats”, reminding us of similar concepts such as The Daily Cut.
Salad shops THE THING in the CBD. Too many? Still, almost every store enjoys a long queue. Almost, as next door unit (#01-05) Salad Monster has said its goodbye.
Prices start from $12 for a Rogue size, which includes a protein, 1 green or carb, 3 supplements (toppings) and 1 dressing.
The larger sizes – $15 for Predator, and $18 for Hero, includes 2 and 3 proteins respectively.
The proteins include chicken breast, chicken thigh, tofu, protein special (was bacon when I went down), sirloin (+$1.50), salmon ($2.00), and ahi tuna ($2.50).
My Rogue sized bowl of seared ahi tuna with romaine, sous vide egg, cherry tomatoes, beetroot and white truffle dressing turned out to be $15 after top-ups. Considered pricey comparatively, and a segments of CBD workers can be price-sensitive.
Ingredients were fresh, were generous serving of seared ahi tuna, though I might have appreciated more if there was a slightly larger portion of greens.
Dressings play an important role for a satisfying salad meal. Unfortunately, on hindsight too, I would have picked something other than the white truffle, which did little to enhance the taste.
Overall, I would recommend Snatch to introduce some unique dressings (or other elements) to have a more distinct branding and personality.
Additional note: I thought I saw Jewel Café’s Adrian Khong behind Snatch’s counter (though I didn’t think he recognised me anymore haha). The likelihood is high, because JEWEL is just next unit, enjoy brisk business as usual.
