The Flyin' Bread

The Flyin' Bread is a nice and cosy eatery located in the basement 3 of Somerset 313 (one of the newest malls in Singapore), right above Somerset MRT, on the very popular Orchard Road. Although they don't provide any seating, patrons are free to use tables and chairs conveniently located around the eatery.

Our visit to The Flyin' Bread was decided very suddenly, when we were wondering where to eat before we headed out to watch "Up In The Air". Initially, we didn't even have any plans of featuring this on Foodie Express, but we all liked the food so much and its been a while since all the core Foodie Express foodies met up to explore restaurants.

They are mainly a take-out eatery and serve up some fantastic rolls. While most of the rolls are non-vegetarian, they do have a paneer (cottage cheese) roll and I think a mushroom based roll too. Oh, they also serve some refreshing fruit smoothies.

Between the five of us, we ordered a variety of paneer, egg and chicken rolls. The rolls come in three sizes - Small, Medium and Large. Small rolls have one kebab stuffed inside the roomali rotis (flour tortillas which are soft and thin as a handkerchief), where as the medium one have two and large ones have three.

Since its a completely open kitchen, we can see the chef making the rotis. He even does  the trick of flinging the dough into the air and then catching it.

I ordered a paneer medium roll along with a mango smoothie and had a very memorable next 5 minutes relishing both the items. The roll as such was very very tasty with a hint of Indian flavour in the stuffing. Even though I had two kebabs inside the roll, I didn't feel it to be heavy. Quite a light but satisfying meal.

The food and the drinks can either be ordered separately or as a combo meal, which definitely works out to a dollar or two cheaper. Price wise, if you order the combo, it will cost you about 7 to 8 dollars. Definitely value for money. I will definitely return back. My only grouse is that there were just two vegetarian options - paneer and mushroom. I just wish they had a couple of more. Maybe corn, potato, etc..
