ButterNut

The Stall ButterNut is name after a type of squash that tastes similar to pumpkin with a kind of sweet and nutty taste. ButterNut was recently launched in end of January and located at Taman Jurong Hawker & Food Centre serving Salad, pizza, Western and Fusion Food.

Pizzas

Thin Crust and entirely handmade. I would never have expected such crispy pizza to be found from a Hawker Stall. These pizza are sincerely hand kneaded and freshly prepared, simply worth waiting for! Besides that, there are some pizza that are Vegan friendly, do make a trip down and support the young generation of Hawkers!

A strong wave of Truffle smell hits me as soon I received the plate of pizza. The thin crust pizza's based with Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan Cheese, topped with white button mushroom slices, shimeiji mushrooms and of course drizzled with the aromatic Truffle Oil. This dish is Vegan friendly.

Salads

Don't leave the place without a plate of healthy salad either! You can choose to customize your own salad with detailed pricing by the side of the menu board or even try out their preset Salad Menu. I believe you will be back for more. For every salad, you are feel to choose your own dressing with Honey Mustard, Wasabi Soy or Balsamic Vinaigrette. ( Tip: It won't go wrong without their Special Blend Honey Mustard Sauce, Yummy!)

Salmon Salad, also known as the Garden's Catch consists of  Salmon Steak, Romaine, Tri-coloured Fusili, ButterNut, mashed Sweet Potato, Sauteed mixed Shrooms, Chia Seeds. Salmon was very well baked with perfect texture and minimum fishy smell.

My Choice of Sauce: Balsamic Vinaigrette & Honey Mustard
Always don't feel comfortable eating Smoked Meat but I'm quite surprised with Mandarin Duck Salad.The Smoked duck was not as salty as I would have expected. The default portion comes with romaine, quinoa, ButterNut, Cherry, Tomatoes, Baby Carrots, Roasted Sesame Seeds. However you can also add on some other items like brown rice. Don't worry, you can also Tweak abit on your salad if you prefer to have some items more in quantity.

Bar Snacks

Comparing to the usual kind of fries, I always prefer Sweet Potato Fries. Sprinkled with Special Seasoning that tasted of Cinnamon powder, that's a fantastic harmony!

The next bar snacks that worth a try will be their Garlic Oregano Chicken Wings. The overnight marinate had lift its flavors in the chicken wings. Crispy texture with light garlicky taste in the meat, I guess it will be good to pair with some beer.

Garlic Oregano Chicken Wings - $4.50 (3 Pcs)
Coming back to its Business Name, I'm quite impressed by the taste of the food and the name speaks well for itself. Butternut were well prepared, they were not too hard nor mushy and the main ingredient of salads. In conjunction with the healthy living style that most of us are working forward to, the existence of ButterNut had injected a new excitement to what we are expecting from an old school hawker food. I'm looking forward to the upcoming expansion of their menu.
