The shelves of organic goodies may be gone, but the former Yogi Hub still brings in a mixed crowd of aunties, Buddhist nuns and the arty set – all smacking their collective lips at the eclectic vegetarian menu and organic fruit juices (try the red cabbage and grapes). The petai fried rice is an unexpectedly wonderful blend of bitter nuts, carrots, brown rice and sambal, while the tofu claypot – filled with gingko nuts, bamboo shoots and asparagus – is the best kind of comfort food. As is the walnut cheesecake.

Not for non-vegetarians yet
It's been a long while since my last visit to 7 Sensations at Madras Street. I was checking its website to jog my memory when I realised that the restaurant has moved to Millenia Walk. Its new location in the city is a far cry from its previous location in Little India. For that reason I haven't commented on service and ambience since all those would have changed by now.
I was at 7 Sensations to try out vegetarian food. My aunt had heard good reviews of their gado gado and black olive rice. The former was not so appetising, somehow. There were many pieces that we - all non vegetarians - left behind on the plate. But we cleaned the plate of black olive rice.
My favourite dish by far was the avocado and mango salad, which was refreshing and just tangy enough. But this isn't so hard for non vegetarians to eat, since we have the same salad.
To conclude, 7 Sensations hasn't given me the sense that a non vegetarian can enjoy vegetarian food as well. But the food is great regardless.
