Feast of Merit is a name full of meaning, it comes from Nagaland, far northeast of India where people believe wealth should be celebrated and shared. It is a tradition when a member of Naga community succeeded in life, they should host a feast. The festival includes everybody without an exception and when the feast is finished, the host receives a cloak that signifies the highest social prestige of hosting a Feast of Merit. Feast of Merit cafe honours Naga tradition with 100% of it's profit donated to YGAP's movement. It's a movement that supports entrepreneurs who have a passion and work on improving the lives of people living in poverty.

Feast of Merit is located near my work place and when I crave for something healthy, fresh and light I know where to go. The cafe it self was spacey, warm and cozy. It's decorated with wooden furnitures, open brick walls, high ceilings and chandelier. I love the rustic warehouse vibe, it's classy yet edgy and warm.

I started with my regular skinny cappuccino, honestly I love their coffee. The milk is always fluffy and served in the right temperature.

On lunch time they only had two options of salad or salad and protein. I ordered the grilled fish with crisp broccoli. baby peas and tendrills, preserved lemon, fine burghal, organic yoghurt ($15)I love the fish so much, it was fresh and tasty. I wish they come in a bigger portions.

My business partner opted for the Hopkins River beef andoasted cauliflower salad, wild rice, garlic tahini, pomegranate parsley, za'tar ($15) The beef was well cooked and mixed really well with the salad.

There was also another time I tried their pumpkin salad and they are also quite delicious. The service was friendly and warm but there are no split bills. Overall, I love the whole experience and definitely will be back.
