Drinks: Elves’ ra­tion.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Contents -

It’s called Lem­bas and for the non-Tolkien read­ers, the name is de­rived from the spe­cial bread made by the elves in Lord of the Rings lore. If push comes to shove, this can be the stuff that will re­place your meals. But that’s not the fo­cus for cre­ator, Alvin Chong; the point of Lem­bas is that it’s con­ve­nient. Too busy to get take­away? Too stingy to call for de­liv­ery? Lem­bas is the com­modi­ous al­ter­na­tive. There’s some­thing al­most nos­tal­gic about scoop­ing out pow­der from a bag and mix­ing it up in a mug of wa­ter (KLIM any­one?) It tastes like vanilla with a hint of co­conut (there might be more flavours com­ing out later). It’s palat­able, like we’re down­ing a protein shake. How­ever, we must high­light that this isn’t a health sup­ple­ment (in­gre­di­ents in­cluded are soy flour, mal­todex­trin, co­conut flour, do­cosa­hex­aenoic acid (DHA) and other mul­ti­syl­labic com­po­nents). It’s just a time-sav­ing op­tion that lets you do the rest of the things that re­ally mat­ter.

Lem­bas re­tails for SGD22 and can be pur­chased at lem­bas.sg
