Food Review: MadASS At Change Alley Mall, Raffles Place | Casual All-Day Cafe & Restaurant By Mad About Sucre’s Team
The Place Located in Change Alley Mall at Raffles Place, MadASS is short for Mad About Sucre Social, and is the sister brand of the acclaimed patisserie restaurant along Teo Hong Road, Mad About Sucre.
The space of MadASS is casual and it resonates with its aim of providing fast-serve-food and in the brand’s words, a “Gourmet Social Movement”.
The Food Similar to Mad About Sucre, the dishes are prepared with all-natural, seasonal ingredients without preservatives, artificial additives and artificial flavours. Lunch at MadASS is highly customisable. Customers can choose from 6 different options and pair them with your own preferred bases, of which you can choose to change every other day. Options for mains include Wagyu Beef, Wild-caught Barramundi Fish, Pulled Iberico pork Wild-caught Prawn, Grilled Turmeric Chicken Baked and Tofu Steak.
For afternoon and all-day pastries, you can expect Mad About Sucre’s signature handcrafted pastries and confections.
Come evening, it is a different menu with highlights like the Spicy & Numbing Fried Chicken, Crab Pasta in Aglio Olio and Foie Gras Pasta in Aglio Olio sauce, and a cocktail menu as well. I started off with dishes from the Sharing Plates section and the Cauliflower with Miso & Premium Nuts, Cucumber (S$15) is moreish and I especially like the play of miso here.
I am usually not a tomato lover but the Soup of Handpicked Crab Meat & Vine Tomato (S$15) gets my nod of approval. You get the natural sweetness of the soup here without the artificial sweetened tomato soup flavour.
I love the Numbing Spicy Chicken (S$11), a great bar snack where you can even request for extra spicy. The normal version is good enough for me though!
The Crispy Tortilla topped with Grilled Wagyu Beef (S$24/4 pieces) is also great for sharing and other than beef, there is also the option of fish or pork.
For pasta, I had the Grilled Wild-Caught Prawns Aglio Olio Pasta (S$16.50), which has a little spicy kick to it.
Rants Be conscious that the indoor dining space is not huge.
Will I Return Again? I am happy to see another quality dining addition to Raffles Place. It is a plus that MadASS is an all-day concept which means you can expect breakfast grubs from the team in time to come as well.
