SINGAPORE RESTAURANT

Afterglow

Raw food takes center stage at this pop-up-turned-full-fledged-restaurant. Try interesting creations like a deconstructed sushi bowl with avocado and miso dressing ($16) and raw mimamisu (matcha) with cashew cream ($10).

The buzz: Vegan-friendly creations take center stage at this new farm-to-table raw food eatery that offers plenty more than just wholesome grub, from fine wine to locally made products like vintage bicycles.  

The vibe: More hipster than zen—complete with industrial-chic décor (we’re beginning to wonder if anyone’s not following this design trend). Shelves displaying eco-friendly bodycare products, tables full of books, an open food prepping area in the back—it’s like hanging out at home with Jessa from Girls.

The food: Expect an intriguing mix of ingredients in every bowl and plate that’s placed in front of you. On offer are items like raw nut cheese made from chili, walnuts and cashews ($16, comes with dehydrated raw crackers in flavors like beetroot); salads like the drag-pom ($16), which has dragonfruit, pomegranate, avocado and macadamia nuts; mains such as nori rolls stuffed with homemade kimchi and achar (from $12); a deconstructed sushi bowl with avocado and miso dressing ($16); as well as dairy and sugar-free desserts, including a raw chocolate orange semi-freddo ($10).                

The drinks: Cold pressed juices, of course. Different combinations are available; with base options like spinach, pineapple and beetroot (from $6). A small selection of craft beers (from $19) and bottled cold brew coffee by local brand Bob's Brew ($16) are also on the menu.

Why you’ll be back: To see how far they push their raw food creations. Plus, the highly-anticipated cocktail bar serving healthy tipples made with herbs is set to launch later this year.
