Hotcakes




Replacing Sunrise bakery,  Hotcakes (managed by younger generation of Gokul ),  also has a cosy concept to serve cakes and coffee.
It currently has only a few main dishes on its menu, including Salad, Rojak Penang,  Burger and Pizza. 
(Claimed without onion and garlic)
The pizza, either garden (like Hawaiian ) or spicy mutton, at $6.90 is definitely value for money. Tasty for spicy lovers  with good portion of ingredients. 
The Rojak sauce was authentic, though it could be nicer if the fried fritters could be kept crispier. 
The cheese-cakes were nice too,  hope they could have non coffee beverages like cocoa or tea  to go with for non coffee drinkers in future.
A good point to compliment is their friendly good service of serving water to customers,  even to customers waiting for Takeaways!
A good cosy place for consideration to have Hi-tea with even non-Vegetarian friends.
Was told they are likely to add Vegan options by end of months too. Will certainly return to try. : -) 

Hotcakes is located at level 1 of Fortune centre, near the office tower entrance, stretch opposite the Crystal shop, near Tracy Juice.

Southern Palace Vegetarian Restaurant 南普坨素食




Was looking for drinks nearby when visiting new ABS building at Lor 37 Geylang that we noticed a corner Vegetarian coffee-shop at opposite street, Lor 40, Geylang.
Adventurous us crossed the busy street to have a look. Good variety of vegetarian dishes including economical rice, prawn mee and Indian Rojak, etc! Glutton me did not stop for drink only but ordered some pieces of the Indian Rojak to try.
Liked its Fried Tempeh...
Good vegetarian option for vegetarians around the area as I had always thought the nearest vegetarian eatery to ABS building would be Kwan Inn Zhai or Rice House around Lor 29.
 

New Fut Kai Vegetarian Restaurant


Fantastic Vegetarian Sweet & Sour Pork Rice!
The sweet & sour sauce is authentic and though the filling does not taste like meat, it is nice by itself without resemblance to meat taste.
A dish I will order again in future visits... :-)

Ci Wen Vegetarian



Further down from Ang Mo Kio Hub, located at a corner of corner coffee-shop at HDB Blk 721, between Jubilee Square and Djitsun Mall, Ci Wen Vegetarian sells a good variety of vegetarian dishes. It has a number of Daily specials and Vegetarian Chicken Rice and Ban Mian were on the menu of our visiting day.
Due to the crowd, I think the standard may not had met as the Ban Mian noodles were not been well cooked but the soup stock was good with mild herbal taste.
However, the vegetarian chicken rice was excellent. It was beautifully served with fantastic flavoured rice that resembles a good chicken rice.  The chicken rice chilli was good resemblance too though the beautifully chopped chicken pieces tasted average.
I won't mind trying their vegetarian chicken rice again...

园香素食 Yuan Xiang Vegetarian


Craving for supper and a good place for consideration will be Yuan Xiang Vegetarian near Boon Keng MRT  which opens till 10.30pm.
We had Stir Fried Hor Fun and Cereal Pumpkin instead of Cereal prawns. Good choice as the pumpkin pieces were well marinated and well fried. Nice and crispy! Recommended to try!
The Hor Fun was well done too with a little wok feel.: -) An enjoyable supper.: -)



Yuan Xiang Vegetarian is located at coffee-shop opposite 29 Bendemeer Road (Bendemeer market), near Exit B of Boon Keng MRT.
Opening hours: 10am-3pm, 5pm-10.30pm.

Food For Life


Feeling a little hungry on way but still  an hour to dinner,  decided to have some snacks and there at Food For Life 's menu showed an appetizing Pumpkin soup at only $2.50. Much healthier than any snacks, I decided to try.
I was even more surprised it was not scooped from already cooked big pot  but freshly made on spot.  I saw a good demo on how easy the soup could be prepared!  A few big pieces of steamed pumpkin slices and a small potato with a pitch of salt? and a ladle of vegetable soup put into blender to blend and a nice bowl of pumpkin soup is ready with garnish of white and black sesame seeds and parsley.
Yummy! Tasty and healthy, certainly worth the price!



Food For Life is situated At Bishan cafeteria, just on 2nd level above Bishan Bus Interchange. One could easily spot it at traffic light at Junction 8 crossing over to bus interchange.

Another recommended place to dine on Hot day near Aljunied mrt is Ci Hang which is air-conditioned.
