#02-08, Fu Lu Shou Complex
Mom, Sis and I went for an early lunch at this organic cafe recommended by Sis who came here with her colleagues before. Like most organic cafes I've been to, this one also encompasses a "shop" within the cafe where diners can also purchase organic products.
All of us liked the starter, Pumpkin Cake ($3), which was firm yet "bouncy" to the bite. The texture was very smooth and the sweet sauce further enhanced the natural sweetness of the steamed pumpkin.
I had the Sushi Roll ($3.50) which seemed to be a common item on the menu of most organic cafes. This version used ume vinegar and syrup to complement the crunchy shredded vegetables. Mock meat floss was sprinkled over the sushi to add a hint of savouriness to the dish. Personally, I like Nutrihub's version more than this.
Sis ordered the Buckwheat Noodles ($6) which she slurped up within minutes.
Mom had the Brown Rice Set ($5.50) which included a bowl of soup. I think this looked pretty normal compared to the rice set served at Nutrihub which was more generous and colourful.
For desserts, we shared the Konnyaku & Bonsoy with Flaxseed ($3) which was basically cubed jelly in soymilk sprinkled with flaxseeds. Sis didn't like the smell of it but surprisingly, the taste was not too bad. I liked the jelly most of all as it was very firm and nice to bite.
Another dessert we tried was the Kanten Jelly with Collagen ($2.50). Now, anything with the word "collagen" got us excited as we all know it's very good for our skin. This jelly reminded me of the one Grandpa used to make. Compared to the previous dessert, this was softer and smoother in texture.
The owner of the cafe once appeared on a wellness television programme before and she was friendly enough to approach us while we were looking at the organic products. It turned out that she noticed us as I was snapping pictures around the cafe. We began to chat and she even taught us how to make yogurt at home. In the end, I was the proud owner of a bottle of yogurt starter ($30). I can't wait to try it out at home!
