The Living Cafe & Deli is a healthy raw food café in Bukit Timah. Started by Dana Heather, a Master Nutritionist and nutrition experts,The Living Cafe & Deli provides genuinely healthy food and drink that is truly tasty, affordable, and accessible to everyone.The interior is simple and natural, and well lit with a retail shop for healthy foods on the second level.There is also wide selection of vegan-friendly raw desserts.Made of organic wheatgrass, celery, spinach, parsley, tastes very pure without any added-in sweetener, definitely a healthy drink to accomplish with your meal.The original version was mainly made of wholemeal buns and quinoa patty, with carrot, celery, spinach, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, basil, balsamic, cashew mayo. But i am not a big fan of carbs, I requested for a burger without quinoa patty, instead with more vegetables. The cost was still $18.I got grilled eggplant and mushrooms, fresh sprouts, lettuce, tomatoes, and raw dijon mustard in my burger.The mushrooms tastes really good, full of char-grilled flavor and was quite juicy. The only thing was not kind of disappointed is the buns, which were a little bit dry.The burger also comes with coleslaw & sweet potato wedges (mine was changed to salad ).Thanks the Living Cafe&Deli for settled my burger-craving, and designing my burger as requested. The overall experience was great, and i feel very comfortable to such a healthy ‘fast’ meal. Will be back for trying more food! By the way, there’s free Wifi, and no service charge and additional taxes! continue reading

At the heart of TLC menu is RAW Food or RAW-Fusion Food. It uses no red meat, no cow dairy, no white sugar, no preservatives, no additives, no artificial colorings and include gluten free alternatives. So if you are quick to spot the (loop)holes, this place is not entirely vegan, as it serves things like salmon and goat cheese. Starters were the hand-cut Sweet Potato Wedges ($4) that were earthy and good. Lightly baked with olive oil, it did not had the tempting smell of fries from fast food outlets but an alluring scent of coriander seeds. Some might find it rather firm but these were perfect for napping in the home-made mayonnaise (made of cashew nut milk, lemon juice, water, olive oil and salt) --->no egg yolks.Follow that up with TLC cheese burger ($15): a dehydrated patty of portobello mushrooms, almonds and sunflower seeds, topped with tomatoes, sprouts and romaine lettuce. I stared in disbelief at the bun-less burger as those burgers from the opposite tables had buns and cheese.Though the mushroom patty had a robust aroma, it was tough and dry, not aided by an unidentified bland orange sauce Wished it was a simple grilled Portobello mushroom with garlicky herbs. But there were good things like the Mexican-inspired Raw Taco Boats ($12). My trepidations of greasy wheat glutens dissipated when the two large sized mock meat turned out to be made of dehydrated walnuts. The light guacamole and mango salsa sauce had a touch of Indian flavors, probably because this dish used similar spices such as cumin. While the savoury food were wholesome, it was the RAW desserts that blown us away. Each had their own merits and everyone declared our own favourite item. I love the Raw Dark German Chocolate Cake ($8.50) made with Dates, Zucchini, Coconut oil, Cacao Powder, Irish Moss Honey and Macadamia. It was compact and chocolatey, not too sweet despite a toffee-lookalike honey layer on top. The shards of fragrant toasted coconuts were a bonus.As for the Raw Blueberry Cheesecake($8.50)made with coconut oil, agave, cashew and lemon juice, we could not be bothered by the alien-sounding ingredients such as psyllium husk, soy lecithin, Irish moss, as we dived straight into the delicate mousse and crunchy base. A bit of sweet and a bit of summer fruity flavours, we did not miss the sharp tang of cream cheese.Tiramisu (actually we all did) was made of natural coffee extract and sitted on chalky and fragile almond-flour cake base. This is literally an authentic tiramisu sans the fats from Mascarpone Cheese and Raw Egg Yolks (Yes, tiramiusu is made of raw eggs too). And who says tiramisu must have the alcohol to taste good? Honestly, I left the place feeling more satisfied than I had expected (perhaps it's due to eating "Real Food" ). However, the fact that nearly every dish were full of (grinded) NUTS, drove me nuts a little. Perhaps I would still pick Indian/Chinese style vegetarian food from Raj Restaurant over TLC. That said, don't leave without trying TLC's desserts which had not been compromised on flavours.
