NatureCafe

At this new NatureCafe located at new building just beside Tai Pei Buddhist Centre (near Lavender MRT),  it will be a good choice for Vegetarians visiting the area.
In a cosy relaxing decor,  it serves a good variety of Asian and Western Fusion Vegetarian dishes.

We were glad to find Green Curry Kway Teow and Curry Fish with Rice and ordered them.

Though the presentation of the green curry is not good as it looked somehow powdery, the gravy tasted good, mild sweet and mild spicy. Its thin version of Kway Teow goes well with the green curry. Overall, I would recommend trying.
The curry fish dish was much better in presentation and the gravy tasted authentic and great to go with the rice! It's a pity that the mock fish pieces tasted kind of not well de-frozed so they were kind of chewy. The rest of accompanying vegetables like the egg-plant and lady-fingers were well cooked in nice portion. So, also a recommended curry dish to try.


On a separate visit, had also tried their Tom Yam Soup dish but that needs much much improvement in its spicy and sourness to make it as good as the rating of its curry.
(above is snapshot of Udon Soup with Fried Cutlet from menu)
(This is actual serving of Udon Soup with Fried Cutlet)

The picture on Udon Soup with Fried Cutlet on its menu (the more appetising snapshot on top) attracted an order but was disappointed when it came as it looked pathetic in comparison.
The pieces of Cutlet were soggy from soaking in the soup and not as well-fried and appetising. I would recommend they put it on a different plate next time they serve the dish. The prawns that looked attractive on picture were much smaller and drowned in the bowl bottom before being found with much digging and tasted like not well de-frozed yet.
Luckily the mild spicy soup that tasted better than its Tom Yam Soup saved the dish.
Despite the 2 disappointments, there are many other choices still available on the menu for future trial like their Baked rice or pasta which I hope is served with Vegetarian cheese and their satay that served on other tables looked appetizing.
A nice cozy cafe for gathering and will definitely return when there's craving for curry.  :-))
NatureCafe is located on left side of main entrance of building beside Taipei Buddhist centre, near Lavender MRT.

Lan Xiang Yuan Vegetarian (Koufu, Commonwealth MRT)


Black Pepper Pork Chop! On a Hugh plate, it did look palatable and overall it is quite nice. Its black pepper sauce was okay, not too spicy with mock meat platter of Soya Bean base. Too bad it is not the cheesy type that the predecessor used to make with. The bun was actually my favourite on the dish as it was not the usual plain type but with a marinated taste in the center and it was most likely pan-fried before served. Points would be added if the beans are served warm. Nevertheless, still worth trying if one miss Western food at reasonable price...

This stall is located near side entrance of Koufu Foodcourt beside Commonwealth MRT.

Happy Life Vegetarian


Daily special on Happy Life Vegetarian's menu ~ Fish Porridge.
Looked appetising enough for order. It's Teochew style of fish porridge, with hot soup poured over cooked rice. So, the soup base is important. The soup taste is just nice for me on a hot day. It is not salty, more to blend flavour, just like typical teochew porridge with light taste. Well, if the usual salty pieces of pickles are added, it will add more authenticity and flavour. A pity the well fried mock fishes are not the bean curd skin type that I like but overall, already quite an enjoyable plain dish for a change. :-)

It is located at corner coffee shop at Blk134 Geylang East Ave1, #01-229, 2nd bus stop from Aljunied Mrt. Opposite Tan Swie Hian Museum. Happy Life Vegetarian is located at the right corner, inside same coffee-shop which hosted Kwan Inn Vegetarian (KIV) for those who knew KIV better.

Tian Yuan Vegetarian


ZhaJiangMian! Not an actual replicate of the real but with its unique taste and gravy that smooths the noodles. Nice combination that I feel like having a bowl again while putting up this post. Try it!


This Vegetarian Supply Shop - Tian Yuan is hidden at level 2 (#02-23) of Fortune centre, right on 2nd stretch of shops up from the escalator. It takes a bit of effort to look for it but luckily it has a bright sign.
