Green eating returns with TREEHOUSE
Plant-based dieters lamented the sudden exit of Christian G. Mongendre’s HOME Eat to Live when it abruptly departed the Hong Kong culinary scene, but after two years, the innovative restaurateur is finally back with his new concept, TREEHOUSE. As with his prior projects, Mongendre emphasises responsible dining and quality-driven food, and his new opening will feature thoughtful interior touches like reclaimed wood, lead-free eco-cement, recycled plastic furniture, recycling bins, and composting facilities. Produce, of course, will be locally-sourced and organic, and gluten-free and raw options aplenty. Expect build-your-own bowls, healthy burgers and sandwiches, salads, smoothies, fair-trade coffees, and kombuchas.
