FRESH FRUITS LAB
Former auditor Jaz Tan, 28, does not like vegetables, but she likes fruit. She opened Fresh Fruits Lab for the like-minded, and the eatery incorporates fruit into meals.
Offerings include the 3-Style Atlantic Salmon Platter for two ($28.90), with lightly smoked Norwegian salmon, pan-seared salmon and salmon croquettes that come with strawberries and mandarin oranges.
For a light and refreshing starter, try the Fresh Fruits Lab Fruit Salad ($12.90), in which berry yogurt is topped with a mix of fresh seasonal fruit.
