A little pricey raw (not all organic) foods

We missed #MeatlessMonday by a day, but we're trying to make up for it: here's the raw zucchini linguine with tomato sauce and coriander pesto. Like most of the dishes at Afterglow by Anglow, it's a little pricey at $16 (especially when not all ingredients used are organic). But this cold dish has flavour and texture. We just wish it had a little more punch.

Too pricey and not filling.

I stumbled there when I couldn't find Happy Realm vegetarian around the Outram park area. I was slightly taken aback by the prices, but decided to try it out anyway. I was interested in the potato salad ($15), and so I asked the waiter whether it was filling. He said it was very filling for a lady. When it came, the bowl was big...but very misleading! It was mostly filled with salad greens, together with some pieces of potatoes (probably makes up 1-2 small potatoes). I finished the whole bowl, and it was not filling at all as the waiter claims. The potato salad was nice but it is really not worth the price. I really wouldn't have minded at all if they added more potatoes.

Yummy vegan food with superb service!

Thankfully my girlfriend had the sense to make reservation. Afterglow was packed when we arrived. In fact, during our lunch, a few groups were turned away as there were no empty tables or had to settle for the 2 high tables that’s outside of the shop unit.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Carrot, orange, miso, ginger puree soup, $14

2) Raw lasagna with shiitake, $20 – Layers of marinated spinach, zucchini and shiitake mushroom replaced our usual pasta sheets. Served with cashew nut cream, tomato sauce and topped with almond! This was an explosion of flavours and textures. Pretty good!

3) Raw burger with spicy sauce, $20 – The ‘meat patty’ was made of dehydrated carrot. And instead of just carrot, strips of caramelised onion were put into the patty for that extra crunch. And for fries, we were served radish strips in spicy sauce.

4) Deconstructed sushi bowl, $16 – With seasonal pickles, shiitake mushrooms, avocado and wasabi dressing. My absolute favourite! Brown rice was so good that I would be contented just eating it with the dressing. A must try! And make sure the bowl of fillings is mixed thoroughly for an even distribution of the wasabi dressing.

5) Quinoa bowl, $16 – With medley of seasonal vegetables and marinated with local herbs and spices.

6) Man-cho chia pudding, $12.50 – Pudding dessert comprising of mango, coconut and chia.

7) Sunday ‘sundae’, $12.50 – My preferred choice of the 2 desserts we tried. Diced fruits put on top of coconut cream, which had chocolate avo mousse hidden within. So scooping the chocolate from within was almost like opening a Kinder surprise since we couldn’t see it from the exterior. Haha, yah. We din pay attention when the staff introduced the dish to us.

We were very impressed with Afterglow cafe. My girlfriend and I were still gushing about them over Whatsapp after we left. In fact, we liked the place and food so much that we agreed to come by again when my girlfriend is back in town in September.

The cafe also reminded her very much of the vegan cafés in Hong Kong and the States. The decor was of industrial chic. Concrete-washed walls with wooden table tops. I like how they created a cosy and intimate dining affair for diners with tea lights and flowers on every table. And their wood coasters were way too stylo!

Service was superb too! They were polite, attentive, yet non intrusive. They are probably the most efficient eatery I have come across when it comes to topping up our glasses. Maybe I was too engrossed in our conversation, but they moved like shadows. Sometimes I don’t even realise they had filled our cups! And that’s a skill, really. The worst thing a waiter can do is to stick his hand across one’s face in the midst of a conversation!

So yes, Afterglow is a cafe one should check out at least once, even if one is not into eating clean.

So exciting to have a primarily RAW organic place in singapore!!

For mains, my favourite has to be this Deconstructed Sushi Bowl with seasonal pickles ($16), Shiitake mushrooms, Avocado and Miso Dressing. The rice is chewy black wild rice which is much healthier option than usual white rice. The entire dish is well marinated with a hint of wasabe without being overwhelming. 

Overall, the meal was a little pricey at ~$110+ for 4 people and we didn’t feel very full. But I now know raw food takes a lot of effort to prepare, and organic produce is not cheap, so I hope Afterglow continues to find a way to make its raw, organic/natural dishes for affordable so more people can have clean, healthy meals! I look forward to more raw creations the next time I am back.

Stylish veggie

This place itself is quite stylish offering veggie dishes with creativity and innovation.  The dishes here are delicious with much flavour.  Not that those are plain or tastless.  There are not many veggie restaurants of this style in Singapore.
