Discovering Real Food

BY SHINLING LIM
@ VOL 4 ON AUG 15, 2015

When Shinling Lim  saw a loaf of bread on the kitchen counter top untouched and unnaturally pristine after seven days, warning bells rang and her obsession with being healthy started. In a chance meeting with celebrity and health food enthusiast, Wu Chun, they came up with a menu that would vitalize rather than slow you down and, with that, The Energy Kitchen was born in hopes of reconnecting people with real food.
