Eating clean has been the buzz word for health fanatic. Other familiar terms that associate with healthy eating are detox, weight management and boost immunity. Chaining all these together to improving health, Frunatic at Palais Renaissance is taking the Eating Clean movement to the next level. They are promoting Therapeutic Eating in order to provide a more holistic approach to attaining good health. And even to improve some health condition such as diabetes and maybe even reducing cholesterol level. All these are achievable through diet alone.
At Frunatic, instead of offering only salad and rice like most F&B establishment does, example, Toss & Turn, Grain Traders, they are offering a fine-dining experience with 8-course meal. Somewhat like Sufood and Elemen. All these are made possible as Frunatic has a team of wellness professionals, comprising Nutritionist, Dietitian, Naturopathic Doctor and TCM Physician, and renowned chefs, to ensure harmony in nutrition, taste and presentation. In addition, they have spent the last 5 years in Research & Development before presenting the fruit of their labour to consumers.
Frunatic insists only the best quality and preparation standards in all dishes as such only natural food without preservatives, additives and colouring are added to the dishes. In other words they uses only 100% natural ingredients. Next, they wash the ingredients to remove pesticides and insecticides using only alkaline ionised water. In addition, all fresh cut are processed using ceramic knife to reduce oxidation and loss of nutrients.
With so much said, now it is time to scrutinized the dishes served in the 8-course meal. Each dish provides some health benefit.
Starting the first course with a drink, Ginseng Chrysanthemum Tea. The intend of this drink is to boost energy and delay fatigue by getting more nutrients and oxygen from the blood to the muscles.
Next is Mango And Apple Electrolyte Smoothie supplying not only fiber but also Vitamin K, Phosphorous, Magnesium and Potassium. Hence regulating electrolytes in the body as to lower blood pressure.
Followed by the Liver Loving Sulphur Salad using the superfood, Avocado as the key ingredient in this salad. By now, we know that this town of the talk superfood is rich in Monosaturated fats (good fats) and mainly more nutrients which are benefiting to the vision, heart, bones, lower risk of cancer & depression, improved digestion and equally importantly for liver detox.
Subsequently, the Green Punch Juice a blend of Kiwi, Green Apple, Bell Peppers and Peppermint as the forth course. The taste was dominated by Green Apple and lightly kiwi flavour with very light hint of bell peppers and subtle peppermints flavour savoured. This combinations provides large source of Vitamin C & E as such it helps to boost immunity against viral and bacterial infection.
Coming to the fifth course, the Cranberry Pistachio Fiber Bites providing health dose of fiber since each serving of pistachio contians 3g of fiber. We know the importance of fibre but a fact lesser known is that it is regulate blood glucose since it slows the absorption of sugar.
For those who are needed weight loss, here is the dish you need to take note, the Dehydrated Dill Pineapple And Woody Pecan Nut. Both Pineapple and Pecan Nut boost metabolism and fat loss due.
Finally, for main, Brown Rice With Apple, Celery And Tomato. After this dish, we feel satisfied as the rich in insoluble fiber Brown Rice helps to decrease hunger feeling. The other important ingredient Celery which contains Pthalides reduce one’s craving for sugary and fatty foods.
Last course has to be a dessert. Mixed Berries Cheese Cake was our last course. Nothing cheesy about this cake.I felt it was more of a gelato. Rich in melatonin from the berries hence it helps one to sleep better.
The 8-course fine-dining set meal is at $108.80 (before 10% service charge and 7% GST).
Overall, we were surprised that the food served at Frunatic tasted delish. It is with only natural goodness and nothing more. We find that no additional sugar and salt were in the dishes. If you value your health and in particular those who need diet to help control their chronic condition should try them out.
