My Greenwich V-iviacious experience

Welcome to GreenWich V mall.
GreenWich is pronounced as green-nich not Green-Wich, for your information. Like many other recent residential developments, this highly anticipated complex has plenty to offer.

As a solitary arcade established within the expanse of Seletar and Jalan Kayu, it was not at all surprising that families would be seen clustering within the restraining space. It is doubtlessly a place for everyone, young and old.

I can’t help capturing kids having a swell time around the fountain. It has been quite awhile since I am as carefree as them, looking at photos of mischievous brats I feel young again.

That particular weekend was overwhelmed with shoppers who came down for the Open House. I joined in the fun with a more reasonable objective, to participate in the Amazing Race with fourteen others organised by GreenWich V and OMY.sg.

These are no ordinary people but instead, Outstanding bloggers who took time off their personal schedules to make the event possible. We were dismembered into three variant bodies.

Party on the left, The Urban Team (Black) – ever ready US!

In the middle, we have the Gang with the robust assembly of representatives – The LifeStyle Team (Red).

Last but not least, the spirited Village Team (Green).

There we have it, the spontaneous Urban adventurers in a corresponding emotional colour ; Black.

From the left, Dawn who is a food blogger like myself. Grace, a bubbly individual who is a celebrity interviewer and stomp blogger. Jesslyn, a jovial chick whom constantly wears a smile on her face which never fails to brighten up the rest of the day. Me/Hazel aka Ai Makan and Melvin, the thorn among the lavish Black roses and I do mean literally that; the roses that is.

Before the whole journey started, we were all gathered in Empire State where the food gorging began. With a full-bodied burger the size of a voluminous adult face to kickoff the foodventure, no one knew what to expect for the upcoming hours of the affair.

Reminiscing the jaw dropping moments we had when this 8-INCH Empire State burger ($29.90) was set down on our tables was hilarious.

If you are dubious about how enormous a 8-inch monster is, think of your 6-inch Subway sub plus 2 inches more and that would be the diameter of this jumbo sandwich.

The photographic beams on my Groupmates’ faces did not last long as we literally digged into this.

With a trademark slogan “You don’t know what juicy is until you’ve tried this!” for this signature dish, you are ensured a substantial oatmeal bun crammed with mushrooms, bacon, caramelized onions and assorted melted cheeses on a bed of lettuce and tomatoes. Not to forget the most vital ingredient of all, a mouth-watering grilled minced Colossal beef patty.

A quarter of the hefty sandwich was a regular sized pounder when dissected into four equal parts. It was a chore handling the meddlesome burger as the ingredients would fall apart, as shown. Melvin went, ‘Woahh.’ as he was trying his best to tackle the situation.

More carbs followed after the teams managed to devour the beast. By the way fyi, we did not expect to be stuffed with a heap of goodies before our torturous food-a-thon began.

A twin flavoured Empire State Pizza lured us in with two of the commonly popular toppings, Mushroom and Teriyaki Chicken. Spoilt for choice or just being indecisive, why not try out this pizza which gives the best of any two worlds?

Singaporeans love their pizza base thin and crisp, the lighter the better. At Empire State, you get to enjoy just that with no chunky options available.

Sautéed Mushrooms laid over a bed of specially concocted wine sauce and tender chicken pieces on some neat teriyaki sauce, finished off with lots of cheddar! Anything with it wins my vote anytime but it has got to be warm, I hate stringy cheeses.

This American-inspired diner is serious about bringing in the most authentic eats and the SIZES as well.
LOOK AT THAT MEATBALL. It looks more like a miniature canon ball more than a beef ball. The al dente bolognese was mediocre but the intentional shaped ‘garnish’ left an immense impression in us all.

Hi cutie pie. One last picture to end this post.

After reading my review, are you tempted to join in the fun at this brand new Mall? Or do you need a reason to visit GreenWich V maybe because it’s too far from you or you are just too lazy?

VOTE for the URBAN Team for a chance to walk away with $50 Greenwich V vouchers.
Casting starts on the 13th of MARCH.

Thank you for your support.
