Vegetarian food is no big deal but when it’s raw, creative and delicious? Enter Afterglow – a plant-based, farm-to-table eatery with a cool, industrial vibe complete with the ubiquitous bike-hanging-on-the-wall thingy which cafes seem very fond of these days. I really enjoyed the food but our bill was rather pricey for the quantity. Hopefully we will see more copycats of Afterglow around soon – healthy competition is always a good thing!
I love the fake “cheese” here simply because I do not like real cheese! Made of cashew nuts and blended with herbs, the texture was creamy (kind of like a thick and coarse version of hummus) and easily spreadable on the raw dehydrated crackers. Lovely dish to share.

Between the kimchi and achar rolls, I prefer the latter! Packed neat and tight with blended nuts (yes, a lot of nuts used so don’t think you won’t get full eating rabbit food!), the pineapple within made it fruity and refreshing while the kimchi was too pungent for me.

This may be one of the most tasty bowls of rice I’ve ever had! The dressing was magical and extremely flavourful that I kept snatching it from K. We have already agreed to order this as takeaway in future and buy some sashimi to make our own perfect chirashi hahaha.
