Here's a new post for Elemen元素 after a long hiatus. Elemen元素 is a newly open vegetarian restaurant and Ms Veg is really lucky to have gone there twice in a week. Both were to celebrate my upcoming birthday.
This Restaurant is operated as a subsidiary of the Koufu Management and its heartening to see brisk business despite minimal or no media attention. I was alerted to this place by a friend who works nearby and he decided to buy me a meal here.

Ms veg thinks should be able to sit around 50-60 pax full capacity. The good news is, they are opening a new outlet in Thomson too! Its heartening to see more people are receptive to vegetarian dining.
As I went twice in a week, I tried almost all the dishes available.
Starting from Right to Left. The Cucumber is filled with Mash Potato and served with a special sauce. The middle was so good, i couldnt make out that it was actually Black Sesame Tofu! The last item on the left was cherry tomato in Plum Sauce. Ms veg loves it as its sour!
Rosemary Bread Sticks
Avocado SaladAvocado Salad - Ms Veg's Favorite! The veg were very fresh and the sauce is a perfect blend with the avocado. The sesame sauce may not be suitable for vegans.
Quinoa SaladQuinoa Salad - Healthy!
Mushroom Salad - I loved it too. Ms veg has no idea whats the third mushroom on the right, but it was really juicy. Sauce tasted like soya sauce but i believe theres more than soya sauce.
There were 4 choices as well - 2 chinese soups and 2 western choices.
Very strong taste and Yummy. However, if you order together with the Maca Soup, this strong taste would overcome the later.
Really good. A must try. I liked the "apple"deco.
Mushroom Soup with white Truffle Oil
Yums. Again, this is Ms Veg's favorite. The truffle oil gave the soup an extra boost. My little nephew love it and finished a bowl all my himself!
Apple Cider (apologies for the lack of pic) was not bad, sour and refreshing.
There were 12 mains to choose from but so far I have only tried 7. Will definitely be back to try some more!
Chinese Tea Tofu with Wheat Noodles
I was told that the broth was made from tomatoes and no additional seasoning was added. It can be a little bland but suitable for people who prefer light meals. The Radish was well cooked and Tofu had a little Chinese Tea Taste.
Tomato Basil Spaghetti
One of the best I've had. The noodles was cooked to perfection!
Wild Mushroom and White truffle Pizza
Served with Spinach. It has a unique lemony taste and was one of the best pizza i've had.
Tomato with Mozzarella Pizza
I've always loved sun-dried tomatos so this pizza is worth every bite too!
Braised Golden Brown Pumpkin with Glutinous Rice served in Hot stone
I like the way this is presented as its unique. The glutinous rice is in a heart shape! Taste is alright, as the pumpkin is well cooked with the sauce. Note that the glutinous rice is sticky and may get stucked in your tooth :) My fav in this dish was the Mushrooms.
Mushroom Risotto with Black Truffle
One of the best I've had! theres crispy rice crackers in this dish making it chewy and crispy at the same time. Personally I find it unique.
There were 4 choices and I tried all 4.
Ice Cream with Chocolate Lava Cake
The best dessert of all. But note of the sinfulness!
Chilled Coconut Puree
If you are a coconut fan, you may like this as there's real coconut meat in it too.
Osmanthus Flower with Grass Jelly
Natural taste, so it is suitable for people who are not into sweet stuff.
Panna Cotta with Raspberry Sauce
Sour if you like it, as the raspberry sauce is freshly made.
Theres quite a wide selections of drinks, but i've only tried Lemongrass Tea and Lychee Green Tea.
Lychee Green Tea, love the lychee fruit! (note that this is canned syrup lychee)
It has been a wonderful experience at Elemen元素. Like Ms Veg always say, as a vegetarian, I am always delighted to find new openings as that means more options for us, even though Elemen is a strong competitor to Sufood, note that they serve very different food! I wish them all the best in business and will definitely go again.
Service was good and the restaurant manager, Peter Lee, is humble and willing to listen to feedback. I enjoyed chatting with him.
