Buddha Bowl $9.90
Top of the menu from Soul ALife is the Buddha Bowl. The aesthetically-pleasing Buddha Bowl resembled the Korean Bimbimbap, it is a mixture of different ingredients, from roasted vegetables, quinoa, edamame, chickpea, purple slaw, tomato, turmeric cauliflower, marinated tofu & beetroot hummus. Ingredients were fresh and carefully selected to provide a well balanced nutrition meal. The plant-based ingredients may be a little challenging for the carnivores without the meaty taste but should be a delectable meal to the vegan lovers.
Mac and Cheese $7.90
Elbow macaroni and greens covered in special homemade vegan cheese sauce, topped with coconut bacon. The homemade cheese sauce was light and creamy, though missing the fragrance of the bacon bits, the coconut bacon was a consolation for a vegan version of Mac and Cheese.
Homemade mushroom patty with sweet and savory teriyaki sauce with sweet potato fries. The patty has a soft and more flaky texture compared to the real meat patty, it was well-seasoned and flavourful. Instead of the unhealthy French fries, it was replaced by the air fried sweet potatoes. Of course, the air-fried version may not as crispy as the deep-fried French fries, but the sweetness of the sweet potatoes more than filled up the gaps.
Thai Style Quinoa $11.90
Thai-infused quinoa with activated cashew and marinated tofu. We were trying hard to figure out what the essence was for this Thai-infused dish. Tasted neither like Tom Yam nor green curry or basil, the seasoning was not distinctive enough to allow the tastebuds to distinguish the flavour.
Yam Roll $3.90
The baked purple yam roll was sweet and nice.
Japanese Gyoza $4.90 (6 pieces)
Japanese pan-fried dumplings with ponzu sauce, side order and nothing too special that is worth mentioning.
Soul ALife provides a good place for those who enjoy delicious and nutritious from the plant-based diets. It is an acquired taste for the meat eaters but certainly a welcoming place for those looking for a healthy diets as part of the lifestyle.
