Operating as a 100% plant-based café, Vibe Asia is popular with the capital’s health-conscious crowd. Heralding the “earth-to-table” approach, all food is ethically sourced and presented in a clean and creative way. The café also works with local suppliers of organic produce, and incorporates ingredients believed to have medicinal and healing properties into its dishes. An example is the Explorer Quesadilla, which features fresh sweetcorn, pickled beets, black beans, cashew crema, and guacamole – all washed down with a botanical healing tea, made from calendula flower, rose petals, and lavender.
