Elemen Harbourfront Centre is the third Singapore outlet of popular vegetarian restaurant Elemen. According to their website, Elemen is a restaurant that respects life and promises to bring to their customers (among other things), “…an abundance of natural recipes that will nourish as well as heal your body and mind”.
