After the meal I wish I could stay longer just enjoying the quiet space, checking out their books for sale on the shelves, or walking around the rooftop farm, but I literally had to run off right after we finished the tea and coffee to catch an afternoon meeting in office. But I was curious enough to return the next day (which happened to be a public holiday) and went for an interesting guided tour by a lovely lady who tended to the rooftop farm on part-time basis. For us city-dwellers, it certainly was an eye-opener seeing all these produce being grown in such a tight space and made us appreciate so much more the efforts required to turn them into the food we eat. And we learned quite a bit that afternoon.
I definitely recommend this to anyone – it goes way beyond just a healthy lunch at ridiculously low price. It's a valuable experience indeed, making me think more about nature, sustainable farming, the balance between urban development and preserving traditional culture, and the enjoyment of food in general. Or as many of my friends would say, if I ever said anything good about a meatless meal, it has to be something extraordinary - and I must say, this is one of those meals.
