New Restaurant REVIEW: HOME: Eat To Live

In a former Burger King outlet, Mana! chef brings a new kind of fast food to Central

If your house is a chilled out vegetarian eatery with farmhouse decor, then welcome home. Or rather, welcome to HOME: Eat To Live.

HOME is healthy eating poster child Christian Gerard Mongendre's newest dining venture after Hong Kong's much loved MANA! Fast Slow Food. Albeit with a slightly wider appeal, HOME carries the same approach of casual healthy eating, adapted for fast-paced urban lives.

Entering the restaurant, I can't help but think the decor is reminiscent of a cross between the jungle and a hip suburban mother's Pinterest board. Try and visualise hanging vines and potted plants paired with wire lettering urging customers to 'be happy' and 'smile'- there you go.

The menu is split into salad bowls, earth bowls, oven fired flatbreads, meat-free burgers, and three varieties of open faced toast, each named after an endangered animal species. I ordered a Blue Whale Flatbread (green base, falafel, roasted garlic hummus, mixed greens, roasted bell pepper, and cucumber) for $50-90 and Northern White Rhino Burger (mixed grain and pumpkin patty, halloumi/HOME vegan cheese, pickled jalapeño, and herb aioli) for $98.

While the mixed grain and pumpkin patty did have a slightly strange consistency, it tasted incredible and the flavours could not have been better picked. The flatbread was tough but delicious...essentially exactly like the type you'd find at Mana. My casual and tasty lunch was completed by the view, overlooking the bustling streets of Central.

Overall, we say go!

For those enamoured with both Mana's rustic charm and Pret-a-Manger's in-and-out service, this nifty lunch spot ticks all the right boxes. And if that's not enough, they serve 'healthy alcohol'. If anyone is less bewildered about that than I am, please let me know what's going on.
