Another random visit on a Friday evening, Alli Oli is actually part of the Four Seasons Gourmet Supermarket at the Marina Bay Link Mall. They have a cheese and charcuterie counter, but also a little sit-down section where you can order small bites and sandwiches. It’s quite funny that if they need any ingredients, they just walk through to the supermarket to grab them.

We had a salami and emmenthal cheese sandwich, an omelette with bacalau (salt cod), a plate of anchovies and a mushroom risotto.

The sandwich was very simple – literally just baguette with slices of salami and cheese, but strangely it was quite good as you could therefore taste both ingredients without being overshadowed by vegetables or dressing.

Maybe ordering both anchovies and the salt cod omelette in the same meal wasn’t the best idea. Both were good but also very salty. If I had to pick one, I’d go with the omelette.

The risotto was quite ordinary, but not the worst that I’ve tried. Given that this is a simple deli set-up, I can’t really complain.

This place is good if you’re in the mood for a light bite, but only one person runs everything so don’t expect a fast food experience.

Pretty good. Portions are tiny for the price but that’s what you’d expect. Definitely an option, although not one at the top of the list.
