Vegan food review: Green Common Singapore at #01-169/170 Vivo City, Singapore 098585

Dine-in has to be allowed eventually, right? And when that happens, check out the Green Common Singapore at Vivo City! It's the world's first plant-based vegan eatery and grocery concept store which serves up some of the most realistic plant-based meals out there that you can try in Singapore. As you know, I've been trying to eat less meat since Feb 2020, and this year even though I'm back on the meat wagon, I am still very interested in the plant-based meat-free movement. Because food can and should be innovated upon, especially in how we can be less environmentally greedy with what's being farmed. And it definitely takes less to raise plants than animals.  

The place is nicely done up and quite spacious and has a bit of that premium food court feel because diners can order at the counter and also get groceries. However there is also table service and a dine-in menu. 

Here's some of what's on their menu which I got off their website (desserts and kids meal not included). Prices are quite standard cafe-bistro prices, but everything on it is MEAT-FREE!

Good selection of appetisers.

So between me and a friend, we got the Omnimeat Luncheon Fries (S$8) which comes with a chilli sauce dip. Oh wow, I was totally blown away by how similar it tastes to the real thing. It was crispy and yet had that 'fatty' taste inside. 4/5

The omnimeat also makes an appearance in these spam omni musubi, (S$9) which is a Hawaiian invention. Unfortunately this one was not as good largely because the sushi rice was quite mushy. The black pepper marinade and the omni-spam was good though. But skip this and get the fries instead! 2/5 

We also tried another plant-based beef called Unlimeat from Korea, in the form of this Happy Beef Horfun (S$15). The dish itself was good, but the unlimeat was too thinly sliced and didn't taste of anything, much less beef, in this instance. I would rather have zero meat than to pay for something not really tasting of anything. 3/5

Get the Beyond burger black (S$15) instead! I'm glad we got this to try because it was my first Beyond Meat taste. I'd say it's pretty similar to Impossible food, but this one had a slightly grainier texture. And perhaps even more nutty. 

You can see the protein structure is also different to the Impossible version. Regardless, the patty was well-seasoned with the black pepper sauce which was not too much to distract from the patty taste. It felt quite clean tasting overall as well despite the delicious bun and side of fries. 

In conclusion, Green Common is THE place if you wish to explore plant-based meat options that is rocking Asia currently such as Omnimeat and Beyond. Props to them for introducing it to Singaporeans, and I hope to be back again when dine-in reopens!
