Tucked inside Changi City Point shopping mall on the second floor, vegan eatery Soul Alife's modestly proportioned turf exudes imperturbable reticence as secret garden vibes reverberate throughout humbly conceived dining premises - serenity reigns amidst a sublime frondescence transpiring. From salads to rice bowls, burgers to pastas, everything served is 100% vegetarian and MSG free, folks can thus chomp away without beating themselves up over it. Soul Alife opens daily (11.30am - 9.30pm), including weekends.

What knocked our socks off:

The Teriyaki Burger suitably impressed: unpretentious homemade mushroom patty (wedged between two toasted wholemeal buns and smothered in saccharine teriyaki sauce) possessed a nutty-woodsy quality which was most agreeable with our palates, not forgetting 'em warm, gently salted sweet potato fries too kicked serious ass in the flavour department.

Teriyaki Burger ($9.90)

Moving on, the Smashed Avocado left us deliriously satiated: chunky sourdough bread facialized courtesy of oh so creamy avocado spread (#foodporn ftw yo), then embellished by corn bits, raw salsa and fermented tofu cubes cleverly mimicking feta cheese. Hmm might there be a cure for dairy addiction after all?

The aesthetically presented Buddha Bowl (comprising roasted vegetables, quinoa, edamame, chickpeas, purple slaw, tomatoes, turmeric cauliflower, marinated tofu and pink beetroot hummus) sure made hearts flutter at first sight; digging in we were amply rewarded with an avalanche of textures cum sensations that frolicked, interspersed and augmented one another. Special mention goes to missy beetroot hummus - she packed much frothy curried goodness unlike anything tasted before.........put it simply moral of the story is this "zennish" creation thoroughly enlightened and nourished, yeah baby.

Buddha Bowl ($10.90)

What didn't work out:

Apart from being unremarkable, the Soul Spicy Rice ironically also lacked depth; we recalled a chili-laden affair hastily cobbled together not unlike some random, directionless fried rice dish improvised to indulge supper whims. Routine inventiveness in other words, if you will. Perspiring buckets and mouths left burning nevertheless brought us no closer to deciphering its aspirations, assuming any even arose.

Ultimate Combo ($11.90)

Dosirak

Dosirak (도시락) is the crystallization of Chinese-Korean entrepreneur Edward Chia's tiny ambition of introducing low calorie yet delectable takeway Korean fare in fuss-free holders. Evidently boyo here is dead serious about offering healthy grub, as one certified nutritionist was even sought in the process to consult on ingredients, preparation methods and taste outcomes surrounding a reinvention of the traditional bibimbap......
