The vegetables here are done al dente, meaning they are just cooked and still firm when served. The halloumi (lightly browned goat's cheese) and greens ($95) is tasty and wholesome, while fresh zaatar ($85), a traditional Lebanese mix of thyme, sesame seed and sumac blended with olive oil, on flatbread with avocados, tomato and cucumber, is a vegan dish that is refreshing and satisfying. But we found a surprise in the African ground nut stew ($105), which consists of sweet potatoes cooked in a mildly spiced peanut sauce with wilted spinach and fresh coriander, and served with a side of quinoas. Its clean, slightly sweet taste is delicious on its own or mixed with the stew. Topping the experience is a range of juice combos and the option of rooftop dining.

Executive chef Jeffrey Le Bon believes organic greens have a crisper texture. Two of his favourite salad dishes are Greek salad (with artichokes, cucumbers, cubanelle peppers, kalamata olives, feta cheese and crispy pita bread, $105) and grilled prawn and walnut salad (with mango, sweet basil pea sprouts and sesame vinaigrette, $128). The green leaves in both are organic.
