A new plant-based grocery store and cafe will be opening at VivoCity on Tuesday (Jan. 19).

Green Common is originally from Hong Kong, where it has nine locations.

First outlet in S'pore

The outlet in VivoCity will be the second concept store outside Hong Kong.

Green Common is known for bringing a variety of plant-based meat and egg alternatives into the Asian market.

Some of the brands that will be available at the store at Vivocity include OmniMeat, Beyond Meat, Daiya, JUST, and Heura.

Here's a look at the store that's located at the first level of the mall:

In addition to grocery items, the store also offers ready-made vegan meals at their eatery.

Dine-in options

The cafe offers a variety of dishes from different cuisines.

Local food, western food, as well as Thai and Vietnamese food are all on the menu.

Hainanese Trick'en Rice (S$16++)

The plant-based "chicken" was very flavourful and moist, with a texture similar to that of our national dish's.

Omni Luncheon Fries (S$8++)

We tried this appetiser that had a very crispy batter, and was similar in terms of saltiness to regular luncheon meat.

Omni Musubi (S$9++) & Alpha nuggets (S$8++)

The Omni Musubi resembled a sushi with luncheon meat on top, and the rice was very nice and sticky.

The Alpha nuggets were very crispy on the outside, and had the texture of a regular chicken nugget.

Consider us fooled.

Papaya & Mango Unlimeat Salad (S$14++)

This dish was very sweet and tangy, but not spicy.

The plant-based beef alternative from Korean brand Unlimeat was very convincing as beef slices.

HK Style Milk Tea (S$6++)

This drink reminded us of regular HK milk tea, except it was less sweet and very light, as it uses oat milk instead of cow's milk.
