Decided to try some vegetarian cuisine, as I heard a lot of rave about it.
Was choosing between Sufood (Raffles City) or Elemen (Millenia Walk).
And we finally decided on Elemen cos someone wants the free gift (mooncake)... lol...

I think this was the 2nd time I came to Millenia walk in my whole entire life.
And we lost our way there.
We walked all the way to Suntec city, then we went across a bridge and was like happy that we finally reached. But we realized we were at Marina Square instead. After asking the customer service lady, we finally walked our way through and saw the big sign "MILLENIA WALK".

Don't say we toot toot hor.... My friend who was late, lost her way too! lol.

So, to conclude, its better to alight at Promenade station.


 

 

 

 

 

the 3 Obasang.
 

 

 

 

 

Rosemary in our drinking water


Appetiser
 
To eat from the right to left.
(right) Mash potato wrapped with jap cucumber and it goes well with the sauce.
Black sesame Tofu with dressing
(left) Cherry tomato in plum sauce
 
I don't usually like cherry tomato, but this was so juicy and it bursts out the juice when you put inside your mouth.
 
really 开胃了!

 

 

Rosemary Breadstick
 
Initially we were pretty doubtful of the sauce. But it was so good.
The raspberry creamy sauce tasted a little sweet and sour.
 

 

Mushroom salad

 

Quinoa salad
 
I find this a little sour for me. There's watermelon in it too.
 

Avocado salad
 
Fresh and good. I don't usually like avocado too. But this taste good somehow.
It goes well with the sesame sauce
 
 

Fresh Burdock roots with monk fruits
 
There's like a herbal taste but yet with a tinge of sweetness most probably from the fruits.
There's white fungus and some mushroom slices.
 

Maca soup
 
Read that it was high in Zinc... Something good for the GUYS! lol...
Slight sweetness in the soup. Not bad.
 

Pumpkin Soup
 
It was very smooth and creamy. nice :)
 

Wild mushroom cream soup with truffle oil
 
You have to mix the truffle oil with the soup. The truffle smell was GOOD!
 

Apple cider as a palate cleanser.
 
It was sweet, but not to drink too fast, as its rather acidic.
 
 

Oven-baked Burdock roots with walnut
 
Its creamy and cheesy. There's burdock roots, pasta, walnut.
Have to consume it fast before its cold.
 

Mild mushroom and white truffle pizza
 
Its very cheesy, very YUMMY!
I think I can finish it all by myself... wahhahahah
 

Mushroom Risotto with Black truffle
 
Its a slightly drier version of risotto, but nevertheless it still taste good.

 

Braised golden-brown pumpkin with Glutinous rice in Hot stone
 
There's mushroom, apples, chestnut, pumpkin and the glutinous rice in heart-shaped.
Have to eat it while its hot too. Cos it will be a little gelat after a while.
 
 

Chilled Japanese Wheat noodle
 
The noodle was rather QQ. Quite a light dish, since the other main course were rather either cheesy or truffle.

 

Avocado roll in Japanese style
 
Its quite filling for one to take the whole 8 pieces.
Avocado and sauce goes along well.


 


 

 

A.J.A.L.Y.A
Full Attendance!

 

Grapefruit mojito
 
Looks so cute and pretty. A very refreshing drink.
 

Ice passionfruit tea
 

Chamomile tea
 
The mini teapot was so cute.


 

Chocolate lava cake
 
A little disappointed that the lava did not flow after I cut it though.
 

Chilled coconut puree
 
Looks a little different from the picture in the menu. Seems a little too watery?
 
 

Osmanthus flower with grass jelly

I felt the mint leaf was a little overpowering.
 
 

Panna cotta with Raspberry sauce
 
Sweet and sour. not bad.
 
 


 
 
We were given a complimentary mooncake when we are leaving.
So cute!
 




 

Overall, I would give a rating 4.5/5. Although I'm not a fan of vegetarian food, but we all felt the food were nice. There's no mock meat. It's organic. The customer service was good too. They gave recommendations and explained their dishes, came to check if the food are ok, offer to take photos for us.

So, it's a nice experience there.


Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for more updates!

Have planned to meet up the ladies since polling day = HOLIDAY!
Initially we planned to have a walk around Bishan Park and some café hopping etc.
But due to the crazy HAZE, we are restricted to indoor outing.
And having a sudden craze of dim sum, we decided to go Ban Heng for dim sum buffet, also since its beside Vivo city, we can walk walk after having dim sum.


Normally, I prefer to meet after 2pm normally. Cos in the morning, normally have to prepare porridge, bathing for Val, short nap for her, and as you guys should know already my hubby needs super long toilet session. So this time round, dim sum at 11.30am was a little rush for us.



the dozing off cutie pie
Oops, dozed off. A short nap for her.
While she's asleep, me trying out my shoes as its a "SHOE (sneakers/running shoe) DAY"
To put on our WINGS.... you'll understand later.
I like my Nike shoes and the last time I wore was before I got pregnant?
Gotten this pair during my HK trip during 2013.
Or should I wear this?! my dr. martens.

Decided on my Nike. Our Family OOTD before heading out.
